Personal details
Diedc. 1031

Ælfmær (died c. 1031) was an Anglo-Saxon Bishop of Selsey.


Perhaps previously a monk at Glastonbury Abbey and then abbot of Tavistock Abbey,[1] Ælfmær was Bishop of Selsey by 1011, and was dead by 1032, when his successor witnessed a charter of King Cnut.[2][3]

It is curious, however, that Ælfmær supposedly attested a charter of Cnut dated 1033.[4] The probable explanation is that Ælfmær witnessed the conveyance itself, which took place in 1032, but the charter recording the transaction was not prepared until 1033.[5]

According to the Handbook of British Chronology, Ælfmær became bishop between 1007 and 1011, and died about 1031.[6]
