Barnic, St

Barnic, St., a Celtic bishop whose burial-place in Cornwall is thus. given: by William of Worcester, p. 113: St. Barnic episcopus, Anglice Seynt Barre, sepelitur in ecclesia de Fowey; et ejus festum per tres dies proxime ante festum St. Michaelis." Leiand (Itin. 3. 33) gives his full name as St. Fin-barrus (i.e. "fine hair "). Barrnocus seems another form of the name, and there are several saints of the same name in Ireland (see Whitaker, Cathedral of Cornwall, ii, 214). The St. "Barrus," bishop of Cork, of the Acta Sanctorum, Sept.7, 142, is commemorated on Sept. 25.
