Alphege of Wells
|Alphege of Wells|
|Bishop of Wells|
|Term ended||c. 937|
At the start of the reign of King Æthelstan in 924, Alphege was a member of his household, one of his mass priests, who were probably responsible for looking after his relics. Early in Æthelstan's reign, Alphege witnessed his manumission of a slave called Ealdred, and he also attested a charter on the day of Æthelstan's coronation, 4 September 925. He was appointed Bishop of Wells in succession to Wulfhelm, who had been translated to the Archbishopric of Canterbury.
