  General Notes:

Also known as Ealdhun, he was the last Bishop of Lindisfarne and the first Bishop of Durham. He was of "noble descent."

Aldhun's daughter Ecgfrida married first Uchtred the Bold who was Earl of Northumbria from 1006 to 1016. After he repudiated her, she married a northern thegn Kilvert. The marriage probably took place close to the time when Uchtred helped her father move the see to Durham. Their son Ealdred was the grandfather of Waltheof earl of Northumbria.
