Nonant, Hugh De
Nonant, Hugh De an English prelate of the Roman Catholic Church, flourished in the second half of the 12th century. He was bishop of Coventry and Lichfield from 1188 to 1198. He died about the opening of the 13th century. Bishop Nonant is noted for his substitution of secular canons for monks at Coventry in October, 1189, an action which found but little favor, and was reversed in 1198 by Herbert, archbishop of Canterbury.
