Jumieges, Robert of (Robert Champart), a Norman who came to England with Edward the Confessor, and became Bishop of London and Archbishop of Canterbury (1050-2). Having opposed the national party, he was deprived of his see by the Witenagemote on the return of Godwine in 1052, and he passed the rest of his life in the abbey of Jumieges, near Rouen, whence he had originally come. He died there in 1052. William of Jumieges, another monk of the same house, wrote a Latin history of the dukes of Normandy, which contains an account of the conquest of England.
