1 John of Dalderby, who had been archdeacon of Carmarthen (for the prebend of whom see DA.DA.PB.10), became chancellor of Lincoln cathedral by 24 Ap. 1291, and bp of Lincoln in 1300 (LeNeveRev1Welsh 59): it is very unlikely, therefore, that he was still archdeacon of Carmarthen at the time of the 1291 taxatio, which got under way after the summer. If the holder of this separate prebend is the same John of Dalderby, he appears to have held on to it (unless the prebend had taken his name) after his appointment to the chancellorship of Lincoln.
