Book of Saints – Kigwe


(Kewe) (Saint) Virgin (February 8) (Date uncertain) Marked in the Exeter Martyrology as commemorated on February 8. She is probably the same as Saint Ciwa, a sixth or seventh century Saint venerated in Monmouthshire. A Welsh Calendar gives the name Kigwe or Kigwoe. It is also written Ciwg and Cwick. But she is certainly other than the Saint Keyna who has left her name to Keynsham in Somersetshire.
