(7th century),

prince of East Anglia. According to the Liber Eliensis he was a son of Anna, king of the East Angles (634–54), and was buried at Blythburgh (Suffolk) before being translated to Bury St Edmunds in 1095. William of Malmesbury mentions his tomb at Bury (with Botulf's) but says he could find out nothing about him except that he was a brother of Etheldreda, herself a daughter of Anna. But modern historians doubt if Anna had any sons; some suggest that Jurmin was the son of Æthelhere, the brother and successor of Anna. Feast: 23 February in a late Bury calendar.
