RE: A Right Royal Connection


Edmund The Saxon Boy King was buried at Bury St Edmunds after being killed at Hoxne, he was allegedly crowned at a Chapel on a Hill near Bures. There are many connections to Edmund throughout Suffolk and throughout East Anglia.
 

There has been a recent campaign to make Edmund, Patron Saint of England
