Erkenwald the fourth bishop of the East Saxons, whose episcopal see was London, was brother of St. Ethelburga, and is said to have been born at Stallington, in Lindsey, of a noble family. From Bede we learn that he was already noted for sanctity when raised to the episcopate in 676. He died in 690, and is commemorated April 30 as the founder of St. Paul's (where his remains were interred), and also of one or two monasteries.
