(Petroc, Perreux) (June 4) (Saint) Abbot (6th century) One of the most illustrious of the old British Saints. He was the son of a Welsh chieftain; and, after studying in Ireland, founded a monastery in Cornwall at a place called after him, Petrockstowe (Padstow), and another at Bodmin, where he closed his holy life (A.D. 564). In Brittany, where are some of his relics, he is venerated under the name of Saint Perreux.
