About 1200 the see of Argyll was separated from Dunkeld by Bishop John, "the Englishman," and Lismore soon afterwards became the seat of the bishop of Argyll, sometimes called "Episcopus Lismoriensis," quite distinct from the bishop of the Isles (Sudreys and Isle of Man), called "Episcopus Sodoriensis" or "Insularum," whose see was divided in the 14th century into the English bishopric of Sodor and Man and the Scottish bishopric of the Isles.
The Latinized form was Sodorenses, preserved to modern times in the title of the bishop of Sodor and Man.
He certainly married, and is said to have been made Cranmer's chaplain, and bishop of Sodor and Man; but he was never consecrated to that see.
SODOR AND MAN, the name of the bishopric of the Church of England which includes the Isle of Man and adjacent islets.
In 1154 the diocese of Sodor was formed to include the Hebrides and other islands west of Scotland.
