|St. Vulsin, Bishop of Shireburn, Confessor|
|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 honour 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 Westminster; but his true ancient name, given by Capgrave, is Vulsin. See Malmesbury de Pontif. Angl. l. 2.
