Saint Engelmund (Engelmond, Ingelmund) of Velsen (died May 14, c. 739) was an English-born missionary to Frisia. He was educated in his native country and entered the Benedictine Order. He was then ordained and then became an abbot.
He traveled to Frisia and evangelized the region with Saint Willibrord. He was based at Velsen near Haarlem. Engelmund's family was originally from the Velsen area, and he was thus successful with converts.
