Conan was a medieval Bishop of Cornwall.

Conan was nominated by King Æthelstan.[1] He was consecrated between July 924 and 932. He died between 946 or 953 and November 955.[2]

However, in the view of historian D. P. Kirby, it was almost certainly in 936 that Æthelstan "established Bishop Conan at St. Germans".[3]
