Alchmund

Alchmund is likewise the name of several Saxon prelates.

1. (Alkmund or Ealhmund.) The ninth bishop of Hexham, consecrated April 24, A.D. 767, with archbishop Ethelbert of York. An account of his translation and the miracles attributed to him is given by Ailred of Rievaulx in his Hist. of the Saints of Hexham. See Mabillon, Acta SS. Ord. Sanct. Bened. iii, i, 214.

2. The thirteenth bishop of Westchester. He attended the Council of Clovesho, in A.D. 803, with four abbots and two priests. His name is attached to several charters from 802 to 805.

3. An abbot of this name attended the Council of Clovesho among the clergy, of the diocese of Leicester. He was evidently a person of. mark, for he was present at the legatine council of A.D. 787, and attested charters of Offa and Kenulf of Mercia from 789 to 803. See Spelman, Concil. i, 301, 325.
