ESTERWINE (Saint) Abbot (March 7) (7th century) A monk of Wearmouth who governed that monastery with zeal and success in place of Saint Benet Biscop, and died A.D. 686, during that Saint’s absence. His humbleness and gentleness, ensured by constant prayer, earned him his place among the Saints. His remains were enshrined, with those of Saint Benet Biscop, and of Saint Sigfrid his successor, before the altar of Saint Peter at Wearmouth.
