Jocelin de Brakelond

(jŏs`lĭn də brāk`lŏnd), fl. 1200, English chronicler, a monk of Bury St. Edmunds. His chronicle of St. Edmund's Abbey, covering the years 1173–1202, is written in a simple, vigorous style and is remarkable for its vivid pictures of monastic life and characters, particularly of the abbot Samson. Carlyle used it as the basis for the second part of his Past and Present.
