Jean d'Orbais
His name and image were in the Labyrinth of the cathedral at Reims (destroyed 1779).

William of Sens
In 1175 the chapter of the cathedral of Canterbury (England) undertook the reconstruction of that building, which had been destroyed by fire in 1174. William of Sens (Yonne, France) was employed as architect, and built the walls, pillars, triforium, and clearstory of the choir aisles. He was preparing the turn the great vault of the choir, when (about September 13, 1178) he was thrown from a scaffold, receiving injuries from which he died two years later. It is supposed by Viollet-le-Duc and others that he built a considerable part of the cathedral of Sens before he went to England.
