Kenelm (St.)

was murdered at Clente-in-Cowbage, near Winchelcumb, in Gloucestershire. The murder, says Roger of Wendover, was miraculously notified at Rome by a white dove, which alighted on the altar of St. Peter’s, bearing in its beak a scroll with these words:

“In Clent cow pasture, under a thorn,

Of head bereft, lies Kenelm king-born.”
