Saint Richard Gwyn (ca. 1537 – 15 October 1584),
St Richard Gwyn was a Welsh school teacher who often changed his home and school to avoid fines and imprisonment for continuing to follow the Catholic faith. He was finally captured in 1584, and was hung, drawn and quartered for high treason. His final words were reported to be “Jesus, have mercy on me.”
House Feast Day
His feast day is celebrated on 1st November.
