  • Notes 
    • Also called Waldeve. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography calls him "of Allerdale in Cumbria."

      "It has been asserted that he became Abbot of Croyland in 1124 and was deposed in 1138, but there is good reason for believing that the Abbot must have been another Waldeve." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below.]
