Quick Reference

Is mentioned by Bede, who recorded that his daughter Cwenburh married Edwin of Northumbria while he was a fugitive and before his victory at the river Idle in 616. That implies that Cearl was probably ruling in the late sixth and early seventh centuries. On the assumption that Penda succeeded him, he died 626.
