BIOGRAPHY A Saxon ealdorman, Cerdic came to England with his son Cynric in 495 and founded a settlement on the coast of Hampshire. In 519 father and son fought the Britons at Charford, and from that year on Cerdic assumed the title of King of the West Saxons. He and his son conquered the Isle of Wight in about 534, the year that Cerdic died.
