ST. RUMWALD, C. PATRON OF BRACKLEY AND BUCKINGHAM
HIS father was king of Northumberland, his mother
a daughter of Penda, king of the Mercians. He was born at Sutthun,
and baptized by Widerin, a bishop, the holy priest Eadwold being his
godfather. He died very young on the 3rd of November, and was buried
in Sutthun by Eadwold. The year following his remains were translated
by Widelin to Brackley in Northamptonshire, and on the third year
after his death to Buckingham, where his shrineeek Synaxary, and the
Menology of the votion. The 28th of August was celebrated at
Brackley, probably the day of the translation of his relics. See an
abstract of his life in Leland’s Itiner., p. 34, alias 48.
