Aethelm, Archbishop of Canterbury
(Died AD 926)
Aethelm is said to have been a monk of Glastonbury and to have been raised to the episcopate in AD 909. In that year, the two dioceses of Wessex were increased to five. Wells became the seat of one of the new bishoprics and Aethelm its first Bishop.
He was translated to Canterbury, in AD 914 and died on 8th January AD 926.
