an English monk and chronicler, lived during the end of the 11th and beginning of the 12th century. He acquired a great reputation for learning, and died June 5, 1118. He wrote a Chronicle, which begins with the creation of the world and ends with the year of his death. That part of the work which relates to contemporary events is one of the most valuable of existing authorities. The chronicle was continued from 1118 to 1141 by an anonymous writer. The most accessible edition is a translation, with notes, by. Thomas Forester, in Bohn's Antiquarian Library. See Encyclop. Brit. 9th ed. s.v.
