Guthheard (or Guðheard) was a medieval Bishop of Selsey.

Guthheard's only certain date is 845, when he witnessed a grant by Werenberht to Werheard.[1]

Guthheard may also have witnessed a charter from 860 that was subsequently altered.[2]

Guthheard died after the time period of 860 to 863, and sometime before 900.[3]
