Company description

Boniface was born at Crediton in Devon in 675 and baptised with the name Wynfrith. The name means "Friend of Peace", possibly because his father was a Saxon and his mother British, to show that the two peoples had come together. He entered a monastery at Nursling [near Southampton] and became a monk and a priest. He found in his heart a burning passion for foreign mission. Finally his abbot let him leave, and in 716 he set out for the land of the Frisians (in the Netherlands, where the black and white cows come from!).
