Æthelburh of Wilton
On her husband's death in 802, she turned the college of secular priests which he had established in an old church in Wilton, Wiltshire, into a Benedictine convent with twelve nuns, of which she became the abbess and is held to be the founder. She died there on Christmas Day 810, and her feast is celebrated accordingly on 25 December.
