Came before (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

preceded

'came before' is the definition.
('precede' can be a synonym of 'come before')

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for preceded that I've seen before include "Came or went before" , "Came first" , "Went before, in time or order" , "Led the way" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald, the USA Today and The Telegraph.
