What does CANCOR mean?

Cancor (died 771), was a Frankish count associated with Lorsch Abbey. He was son of a noble lady Williswinda. As her only known husband before she was widowed was named Robert, it has been proposed that Cancor was son to Robert I, Count of Hesbaye, who was also alive in the 8th century. In 764, Cancor founded Lorsch Abbey together with his widowed mother Williswinda as a proprietary church and monastery on their estate, Laurissa (Lorsch). They entrusted its government to Cancor's cousin Chrodegang, Archbishop of Metz, who was a relative. Chrodegang dedicated the church and monastery to Saint Peter and became its first abbot. The founders enriched the new abbey later by further donations. In 766, Chrodegang resigned as Abbot of Lorsch owing to his other important duties as Archbishop of Metz. He then sent his brother Gundeland, another nephew of Cancor, to Lorsch as his successor. According to one source, Cancor was probably related to the Robertians. His father's name may have been Rodbert. Robert may have been his brother or his nephew.
