This mistake dates from the sixteenth century, when Leland in his Commentarii de scriptoribus Britannicis introduced his brief account of Bartholomaeus with this sentence: 'Bartholomaeus Glannovillanus ex noblissimo, ut ego colligo, genere Comitum Sudovolcarum eiusdem appellationis originem duxit' ... Leland, it appears, confused the author of the De proprietatibus rerum with a Bartholomaeus de Glanvilla of Suffolk, who died about 1360")
