People that represent the summoner from the canterbury tales?

i know many but they are not famous people. The summoner, as I am sure you know was like a bailiff of the church and called people up to the bench for their crimes - like adultery, etc. In the Tales he was a nasty bit of work and gave Chaucer that wonderful line "ful prively a finch eek coude he pul" which meant he could pull young girls. He drank heavily and his breath smelt. He also had bad acne.
