Appointed as a King's Clerk in 1251, he was selected as Chancellor of the Exchequer in November 1263 and served until 25 February 1264.[1] He also served as acting treasurer in November 1263.[2] On 30 October 1268 he was reappointed Chancellor, serving until 29 July 1269.[1] On 6 February 1270 he was appointed Treasurer and served in that office until 9 June 1271.[2]

Chishull held the prebend of Chamberlainwood in the diocese of London before he had the office of Archdeacon of London. He was archdeacon by 15 January 1263.[3] He was then appointed Provost of Beverley Minster from 1265 to 1274 and Dean of St Paul's in London between August and October 1268.[4]

Chishull was elected bishop on 7 December 1273,[5] confirmed 15 March,[citation needed] and consecrated on 29 April 1274.[5][6]
