FEMALE Wynflæd

Mother of St. Ælfgifu.

In 966, king Eadgar ("Adgar") of England confirmed a grant of land in co. Dorset to Shaftesbury Abbey which had formerly been granted by his grandmother Winfled ["... ego Adgar tocius Britannie basileus ... ava mea Winfled" Cart. Sax. 3: 449 (#1186)]. Since Eadgar's paternal grandmother is documented by other records as Eadgifu, Wynflæd must have been his maternal grandmother, and therefore mother of St. Ælfgifu, mother of Eadgar.
