Norfolk and godson of Philip II King of Spain.
19th October in Arundel and Brighton Diocese
4th May as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales
After a frivolous youth at the court of Elizabeth I he
witnessed a debate on theology with Edmund Campion and Ralph Sherwin which
inspired him to reconcile with his wife and take his Catholic faith
He was arrested on charges of treason and spent 10 years
in the Tower of London where he died of dysentery. He was kept mostly
in solitary confinement fearing execution, although the charges were never
proved and Queen Elizabeth did not sign his execution warrant.
He requested permission, when dying, to see his wife and
son whom he had never met because of his incarceration. He was offered the
opportunity if he renounced this Catholicism to see them and have his titles
and lands restored, but he refused.
He died alone on 19th Oct 1595.
He was canonised as one of the Forty Martyrs of England
and Wales by Pope Paul VI in 1970.
He is one of the patron saints of the Diocese of Arundel
and Brighton, England.
