Brithwaldus (Or Britwold)
a monk of Glastonbury, and afterwards abbot of Reculver (Regalbiensis), was elected to the see of Canterbury, July 1, 692. He drove into banishment Wilfred of York; but at length, frightened by the papal menaces, restored him to his see. He held the metropolitan see thirty-eight years and six months, and died in 730. He wrote, the Life of St. Edwinus, Bishop of Worcester: — De Origine Eveshamensis Coenobii, etc. See Godwin de Praes, page 43; Landon, Ecclesiastical Dictionary, s.v.
