Cyneheard (or Kinehard) was the eighth bishop of Winchester, in the ancient lists. According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle he was appointed in 754, and his name is found appended to charters from 755 to 766. His death was probably prior to 788, the date given by some MSS. of Florence. Two letters of Cyneheard to Sullus are preserved among the letters of Boniface (Mon. Moguntina, ed. Jaffe, Nos. 110, 121).
