Book of Saints – Kingsmark

Article

(Cynfarch) (Saint) (September 8) (5th century) One or two chapels or churches in the West country are dedicated to him, and there is a place-name commemorating him. He is said to have been a Scottish chieftain, and to have afterwards come to Wales, where, remaining in the world, he sanctified himself and acquired such popular repute for holiness as after his death to have heen at once canonised by the clergy and people. He, it would seem, married a grand-daughter of the famous Brychan of Brecknock.
