Alheard (Alchardus, Algheard, or Ealheard, Ealgheard)
Alheard (Alchardus, Algheard, Or Ealheard, Ealgheard)
a bishop of Elmham, was present at the Legatine Council of A.D. 786, and at that of Clovesho in 803, the decree of which he signed. He attested several charters drawn up in councils (788-805), and is doubtless the person called Alchbertus in the charter of Winchelcomb, granted at the consecration of that abbey in 811. Alcuin's 217th letter is addressed to him and Tidfrith of Dunwich.
