Saint Osmund of Salisbury by Daphne I Stroud

Osmund (died 3 December 1099), Count of Sées, was a Norman noble and clergyman. Following the Norman conquest of England, he served as Lord Chancellor (c. 1070–1078) and as the second bishop of Salisbury, or Old Sarum. Osmund, a native of Normandy, accompanied William the Conqueror to England, and was made Chancellor of the realm about 1070. He was employed in many civil transactions and was engaged as one of the Chief Commissioners for drawing up the Domesday Book

Saint Osmund of Salisbury, (died December 3/4, 1099, England; canonized January 1, 1457; feast day December 4), Norman priest, who was chancellor of England (c. 1072–78) and bishop of Salisbury (1078–99). According to a 15th-century document, Osmund was the nephew of William the Conqueror. He certainly accompanied the Normans to England, where he was William’s chaplain and one of the compilers of Domesday Book. A late document states, probably inaccurately, that he was earl of Dorset. Osmund completed and consecrated the cathedral at Old Sarum, Wiltshire, in 1092, and he organized a cathedral.

Bishop of Salisbury who helped compile the Domesday Book. A member of the Norman nobility, he was the son of Count Henry of Seez and Isabella, half-sister of King William the Conqueror of England  . Osmund also assisted the king in assembling the massive census which became the Domesday Book. In the dispute over investiture between King William II and St. Anselm of Canterbury, Osmund initially sided with the king, but later he admitted he had made a mistake, and he begged Anselm's forgiveness. Osmund also collected manuscripts for the cathedral library, was a copier and binder of books, authored a life of St. Aldhelm, and was thought to be responsible for drawing up the books governing the liturgical matters for the diocese such as the Mass and Divine Office, the so called Sarum Use.

For the Swedish archbishop, see Osmundus. Osmund became bishop of Salisbury by authority of Gregory VII, and was consecrated by Archbishop Lanfranc around 3 June 1078. His diocese comprised the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, and Berkshire, having absorbed the former bishoprics of Sherborne and Ramsbury under its incumbent Herman at the 1075 Council of London. In his Acts of the English Bishops, William of Malmesbury describes medieval Salisbury as a fortress rather than a city, placed on a high hill, surrounded by a massive wall
