A 'See' is an administrative area overseen by a Bishop. The See has its own arms, distinct from any personally held by the Bishop at the time.

Owner - Bishop GROSSETESTE
Robert Grosseteste (1175 - 9 October 1253) was Bishop of Lincoln and has a University College in Lincoln named after him. He made significant contributions to the development of scientific thought.
I am assuming that his arms are argent a cross fourche pierced sable, although I do not have a documentary source to confirm this.
