ceadda) (d.672. Bishop of Lichfield. A Northumbrian, he was with his brother Cedd* one of the twelve pupils of Aidan* on Lindisfarne. In 664 he succeeded Cedd as abbot of Lastingham, Yorkshire. Because of Wilfrid's* dallying in France when he had gone there to be consecrated as bishop of York, King Oswy of Northumbria had Chad appointed to that see. After Wilfrid's return , archbishop of Canterbury, ruled the appointment was irregular, and in 669 Chad returned to Lastingham. The same year, King Wulfhere of Mercia asked Theodore for a bishop, and Chad was sent. He made his see at Lichfield. Chad was noted, like many others for whom Lindisfarne was a spiritual home, for his humility, his devotion, his teaching ability, and his missionary journeys.
