Rfv-sense: the office of bishop.

Split off from a sense in this edit: diff.

The sense originally added in diff.

I find no dictionaries that have it. --Dan Polansky (talk) 17:03, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

The OED has lawn-man as a derisive term for a bishop. SpinningSpark 23:58, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
See lawn sleeves/lawn-sleeves. DCDuring TALK 01:34, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
lawn sleeves seems to be missing the literal sense of the item of bishop's clothing and has only the figurative meaning of "bishop". SpinningSpark 08:39, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
RFV-failed for now, since even the citation SpinningSpark found seems to use "lawn" to mean "bishop" rather than "office of bishop". Feel free to add that sense ("bishop"), preferably with two more citations, or to re-add this one with citations. - -sche (discuss) 08:34, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Feel free to re-add with citations, obviously. - -sche (discuss) 05:14, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
