Article

ERBIN (Saint) (May 29) (5th century) His name is sometimes written Erbyn or Ervan. A Cornish Saint, probably of the fifth century. Churches are dedicated to him and his name appears in several Calendars. He seems to have been related to one of the Cornish or Devonian chieftains of his age. By error, his name has sometimes been spelled Hermes, confusing him with the ancient Martyr of that name.
