LEOFRIC.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "dear ruler," from Old English leof "dear, valued," and rice "mighty, powerful, rich, wealthy." (A Handy Poetical Anglo-Saxon Dictionary, Baskervill, 1885)

... On such occasions the monks were eager to relieve the wants of their countrymen; and whoever is conversant with their writers, must have remarked the satisfaction with which they recount the charitable exertions of their most celebrated abbots.  Among these, a distinguished place is due to Leofric, the tenth abbot of St. Alban's...
