13 September 1274 A.D.  William Chillenden Dies—Nomination as 48th Archbishop of Canterbury Quashed

William Chillenden, (died 1274) also known as Adam of Chillenden, was a monk at Christ Church Priory, Canterbury, and treasurer of that priory when he was elected Prior of Christ Church in 1263 (or 1264).[1]

Chillenden was elected to be Archbishop of Canterbury in England on 9 September 1270. King Edward I, however, had wanted his Chancellor Robert Burnell elected.[2] Chillenden's election was set aside by the pope in the summer of 1272 and he never received his pallium.[3]
Chillenden died on 13 September 1274.[1]
