Ven. Thomas Welbourne



Martyred at York, 1 August, 1605. Nothing is known about about this martyr except the scanty details collected by Bishop Challoner from the early catalogues of the sufferers for the Faith: "Thomas Welbourne was a school-master, a native of Kitenbushel in Yorkshire; and John Fulthering was a layman of the same county, who being zealous Catholics, and industrious in exhorting some of their neighbours to embrace the Catholic faith, were upon that account arraigned and condemned to suffer as in cases of high treason" (II, 12). Neither of their names occur in Peacock's "Yorkshire Catholics in 1604".

CHALLONER, Memoirs of Missionary Priests (London, 1741-42); WILSON, Martyrologe (s.l., 1608); WORTHINGTON, Catalogues (1608 and 1614).
