St. Gwrfael,
Bishop of Gloucester
(Born c.AD 395)

(Latin-Vormaglus, English-Worbald)

Gwrfael was the son of St. Cadfrod, Bishop of Caerleon. Extremely little is known of him and his historicity is thus in considerable doubt. He said to have been a bishop, presumably of Glevum alias Caer-Gloyw (Gloucester), where there is said to have once been a church dedicated to his memory. He may have been the founder of the See.
