Aelfric Puttoc
(Died 1051)

Bishop of Worcester
Archbishop of York
Died: 22nd January 1051


Aelfric Puttoc became Archbishop of York in 1023, but lost the associated Bishopric of Worcester to Lyfing, the great counsellor of Canute, who succeeded to that living. When Lyfing was accused of being implicated in the murder of Prince Alfred, the Archbishop took his opportunity to seize the See of Worcester. He, however, resigned it in the following year and permitted Lyfing (who was Bishop of Crediton as well as of Worcester) to return. Aelfric died at Southwell and was buried in Peterborough Cathedral.

Edited from Richard John King's "Handbook to the Cathedrals of England: Northern Division" (1903).
