Cynered, (or Coenred) was a Bishop of Selsey.

Cynered received a confirmation from Coelwulf, King of Mercia, between 821 and 823 of the land originally granted by Noðhelm to his sister Noðgyð.[1]

Cynered was present at a synod æt Astran in 839.[2] Cynered's bishopric can be dated approximately to (in or before 821-823) to (in or after 839), and that is much as the historical evidence permits.

Cynered died some time between 839 and 845.[3]
