Saint Non Ascetic

Reposed 5 century Remembered March 3

St Non was the mother of St David. There is a chapel built on early foundations, with holy well and early cross slab, near St David’s. This is the reputed site of St David’s birth. She may have become a nun later in life. She has a church and holy well dedicated to her at Altarnon (‘altar of Non’) and another holy well at Pelynt, both in Cornwall. The 11C Life of St David tells of the story of his conception and birth of St Non.
