David Cameron Visits St Endellion

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

A saintly surprise for the Camerons came whilst Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha were on holiday just a stones throw from Port Isaac.

Samantha gave birth to a baby girl whom they named Florence Rose Endellion Cameron. The second middle name is taken from the parish, St Endellion, close to where the Camerons were staying. The name, St Endellion, came from St Endelienta, a Christian Martyr who crossed the Bristol Channel in the 6th Century to bring Christianity to Cornwall.

Legend has it that Endelienta survived the crossing on cows milk but her cow was killed by a local lord. In turn, her godfather, King Arthur, killed the lord. Endelienta revived him and was subsequently made a saint – hence St Endellion.

And what a lovely church – well worth a visit.
