Henry Wingham (died 1262) was a Lord Chancellor of England and Bishop of London.

Life[edit]

Wingham was selected as Chancellor on 5 January 1255. His office was renewed by the baronial reformers in 1258, but he was replaced on 18 October 1260 by Nicholas of Ely.[1] He held the prebend of Newington in the diocese of London as well as being a member of the papal chapel and the dean of St Martin le Grand.[2]

Wingham was elected to the see of London about 29 June 1259,[3] confirmed 11 July 1259,[citation needed] and consecrated on 15 February 1260.[3][4]

Wingham died on 13 July 1262[3] or 14 July 1262. He was definitely dead by 16 July 1262.[4]
