Simon was a chaplain and chancellor of Adeliza of Louvain, the second wife of King Henry I of England, before being elected to the see of Worcester about 29 March 1125. He was ordained a priest on 23 May 1125 and consecrated on 24 May 1125,[1] at Canterbury by the archbishop, William de Corbeil.[2] He died about 20 March 1150.[3] Prior to his election, the monks of the cathedral chapter had appealed to William de Corbeil, Archbishop of Canterbury and to William Giffard, Bishop of Winchester, for help in securing a free election, but in the end they accepted Simon's appointment by King Henry I of England. Although he was not a monk, Simon became popular with his monks.[4]
