Ælfweard (died 1044) was a medieval Bishop of London.

A monk from Ramsey on the Isle of Man who became the Abbot of Evesham in 1014, Ælfweard became Bishop of London but retained Evesham.[1] He was consecrated in 1035,[2] but when he developed leprosy he was expelled from Evesham and he returned to Ramsey.[1] He died on either 25 or 27 July 1044.[2]
