Beuno
Beuno is perhaps one of the best known of the North Welsh saints, being Winefride’s uncle, and closely linked with the dramatic story of her restoration to life at Holywell. Beuno is a particulalrly peripatetic saint; having begun life in southern Wales and moved first north and then west beyond Caernarfon. In doing so he left behind a trail of wells at::

Mary        
Ffynnon Fair, St Mary’s Well, is sometimes regarded as a default name for a Holy well. The name is often given to a well with a reputation for healing when not dedicated to a particular local saint. It has been said that whenever there was a Ffynnon Fair in a parish then water would be taken from that well for use in baptism, although other saints wells were also regularly used for this purpose.
