(Blessed) Martyr (February 7) (16th century) A youth who, yet a layman, designed to cross to Douai and become a priest. This being betrayed to the authorities, they caused him to be arrested, racked and otherwise grievously tortured. In the end he was hanged and cut down alive, to be afterwards barbarously butchered at Tyburn (A.D. 1578).
