Richard of Hexham
Richard Of Hexham was the first prior of his house before 1138. He compiled a short history of the last two years of the reign of Henry I, and of the more remarkable events of that of Stephen, and a history of the Church of Hexham. Tanner also attributes to him — probably on slender foundation — a history of the reign of Henry II. See Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, s.v.; Chalmers, Biog. Dict. s.v.
