St. Mabyn

18 November

6th century (?). The nun Saint Mabyn is said to have been one of the daughters of the prodigious Saint Brychan of Brecknock (f.d. April 6). She migrated from Wales to Cornwall and founded the church of the town now called after her. The church of Saint Neot in Cornwall has an image of Mabyn in its 16th-century stained glass Wives Window (Farmer).
