Ithamar

Ithamar (d. 655/64). Bishop of Rochester. Ithamar was a Kentishman and the first native bishop of the English church from c.644. Nothing else is known of him. It is remarkable that for 47 years after the coming of Augustine every bishop in England had been either Italian or Irish. His name may sound vaguely Germanic but is in fact biblical.
