Shrine of an English Martyr. The son of William Mayne, Cuthbert Mayne was born at Youlston, near Barnstaple in Devon, and was baptized on 20th March 1543/4, "St Cuthbert's Day". His uncle was a priest who conformed to the Church of England, and the family expected the good natured, shallow Mayne would inherit his uncle's rich church. This uncle paid his way to Barnstaple Grammar School, and he was ordained a Protestant minister at the age of eighteen and instituted rector of Huntshaw, near Torrington. After ordination, Cuthbert Mayne attended university, first at St Alban Hall, then at St John's College, in Oxford, where he was made chaplain. He became B.A. on 6th April 1566 and M.A. on 8 April 1570. Cuthbert Mayne Whilst at Oxford, Cuthbert Mayne met Edmund Campion and other Catholics, such as Gregory Martin, Humphrey Ely, Henry Shaw, Thomas Bramston, Henry Holland, Jonas Meredith, Roland Russell, and William Wiggs. At some point Cuthbert Mayne, too, became a Catholic. Late in 1570, a letter addressed to him from Gregory Martin fell into the hands of the Bishop of London, and officers arrested him and the others mentioned in the letter. Being warned off by Thomas Ford, Mayne evaded arrest by going to Cornwall and then, in 1573, to the English College at Douai. Douai, in the department of Nord, France, is on the River Scarpe, some twenty miles south of Lille.

It has been a while since we were here and I took these photos, but my memories of the warm faith-filled community remain.
