Aldberht

Aldberht,

(1) one of the bishops of East Anglia, at the period at which the history of Bede closes. His name is omitted in the list of the bishops of Dunwich, to which it must have belonged, or else misplaced; for the fifth bishop, to whom the name of Aldberht is given, must have been later than the time of Bede.

(2.) The ninth bishop of Hereford in the ancient lists; He signs a charter of Offa as " electus" in 777, and as bishop in 781. He died before the Legatine Council of 787, which is signed by his successor Esne, or Eine.
