BeschreibungRoger Cadwallador (b. at Stretton Sugwas, near Hereford, in 1568; executed at Leominster, 27 August 1610) was an English Roman Catholic priest. He is a Catholic martyr, beatified in 1987. He was ordained subdeacon at Reims, 21 September 1591, and deacon the following February. In August 1592, was sent to the English College at Valladolid, where he was ordained priest. Returning to England in 1594, he worked in Herefordshire as a missionary, especially among the poor, for about 16 years. Search was made for him in June, 1605, but it was not till Easter, 1610, that he was arrested at the house of Mrs. Winefride Scroope, widow, within eight miles of Hereford. He was then brought before the Bishop of Hereford, Robert Bennet, who committed him to Hereford gaol where he was loaded with irons night and day. On being transferred to Leominster gaol he was obliged to walk all the way in shackles, though a boy was permitted to go by his side and bear up by a string the weight of some iron links which were wired to the shackles.
