         – He was of English birth. He is frequently called Morlanensis, which title most writers have interpreted to mean that he was a native of Morlaix in Brittany, though some credit him to Murlas near Puy in Béarn.

1109-1122 – He belonged to the family of the Seigneurs of Montpellier in Languedoc, and was born at Murles, a possession of that distinguished family; also that he was at first a monk of St. Sauveur d’Aniane, whence he entered Cluny under Abbot Pons.

1140 – He left some sermons and is said by some to be the author of certain monastic regulations known as the Consuetudines Cluniacenses, yet recent dating of said customary proves otherwise.
