      St. Trumwin, Bishop of Whitby, among the Picts
      ---------------------------------------------------
      (also known as Trumma)

      Died c. 700. Saint Bede tells us that, in 681, Saint Trumwin
      was appointed bishop over the southern Picts by Saint
      Theodore and King Egfrid. Archbishop Theodore of Canterbury had divided
      the Northumbrian diocese governed by Saint Wilfrid into three,
      establishing the sees of Deira, Bernica, and Lindsey. Three years later,
      two more diocese were created for Hexham and on the Firth of Forth to
      govern the Pictish lands recently conquered. This last became the seat
      for Trumwin, who organised his see at the monastery of Abercorn and
      later founded a monastery at Lothian on the Firth of Forth. Trumwin also
      accompanied Theodore to Farne to persuade Saint Cuthbert to be
      consecrated bishop of Hexham. In 685, King Egfrid was killed by the
      Picts in the disastrous battle of Nechtansmere and Saint Trumwin and all
      his monks had to flee south when the English were ousted. He went to
      Whitby Abbey, where he was welcomed by Abbess Saint Elfleda. There he
      lived out his last days in "austerity to the benefit of many others
      beside himself" (Bede). Trumwin's relics were translated during the 12th
      century with those of King Oswy and Saint Elfleda (Benedictines,
      Coulson, Farmer).

                    was appointed bishop over the southern Picts by Saint
                    Theodore and King Egfrid. Archbishop Theodore of Canterbury had divided
                    the Northumbrian diocese governed by Saint Wilfrid into three,
                    establishing the sees of Deira, Bernica, and Lindsey. Three years later,
                    two more diocese were created for Hexham and on the Firth of Forth to
                    govern the Pictish lands recently conquered. This last became the seat
                    for Trumwin, who organised his see at the monastery of Abercorn and
                    later founded a monastery at Lothian on the Firth of Forth. Trumwin also
                    accompanied Theodore to Farne to persuade Saint Cuthbert to be
                    consecrated bishop of Hexham. In 685, King Egfrid was killed by the
                    Picts in the disastrous battle of Nechtansmere and Saint Trumwin and all
                    his monks had to flee south when the English were ousted. He went to
                    Whitby Abbey, where he was welcomed by Abbess Saint Elfleda. There he
                    lived out his last days in "austerity to the benefit of many others
                    beside himself" (Bede). Trumwin's relics were translated during the 12th
                    century with those of King Oswy and Saint Elfleda (Benedictines,
                    Coulson, Farmer).
