Simeon of Durham

Simeon Of Durham, an English chronicler, taught mathematics at Oxford, and afterwards was proecentor in the cathedral at Durham. We owe to him a Historia de Gestis Regum Anglorum, from 616 to 1129, continued down to 1156 by John of Hexham, and inserted in the Anglicanoe Hstories Scriptores 10 of Twysden (Lond. 1652, fol.). It is mostly a literal reproduction of the Chronicles of Florence of Worcester, who died in 1118. Simeon is likewise the author of a letter De Archiepiscopis Eboraci; and he has given under his own name, without any addition to the work, another production, Historia de Dunellmensi Ecclesia, printed in Twysden's edition. but which. altogether belongs, as Selden has shown, to Turgot, prior of Durham, who died in 1115. Simeon died after 1130. See Wright, Biogr. Britann. Literaria; vol. 1.
