(Old Testament) the 2nd son of Jacob and one of the 12 patriarchs of Israel
Simeon was Jacob and Leah's second son and the founder of the Tribe of Simeon, as related in the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible. The name "Shim'on" appears to be a contraction of the Hebrew words "Shama'" (שמע) & "'on," (עון), which means, "[God] has heard of my suffering," a reference to Leah's perception that Rachel was Jacob's favorite wife.
Simeon was a relative of William I and the brother of Walkelin, through whose influence he was made prior of Winchester, then in 1082 Abbot of Ely, where he began work on the present building. He recovered for the monastery of Ely the lands which had been allotted to the Normans during their siege of the island of Ely when it was held by Hereward the Wake.
