ST. VULSIN, BISHOP OF SHIREBURN, C.
WILLIAM of Malmesbury informs us, that St.
Dunstan, when bishop of London, appointed him abbot of twelve monks
at Thorney, since called Westminster, where Saint Mellitus had built
a church in honor of St. Peter. Vulsin was afterwards chosen bishop
of Shireburn; his holy life was crowned with a happy death in 973. He
is called Ultius by Matthew of West-minster, but his true ancient
name, given by Capgrave, is Vulsin. See Malmesbury de Pontif. Ang1.1.
