John of Monmouth
John Of Monmouth (so called from the place of his nativity), a doctor of divinity and canon of Lincoln, was chosen bishop of Llandaff in 1296, after a vacancy in that see of seven years, the pope remitting the election to archbishop Kilwarby, who called John of Monmouth. He became a great benefactor to the bishopric, procuring for it, among other revenues, the rectory of Newland. He was a learned and pious theologian. He died April 8, 1323.
