Historically Famous Crispins
Crispin was a Roman shoemaker, together with his brother, Crispinian. They set out on a missionary expedition to France with St Quentin but were martyred at Soissons in 285. According to legend, their bodies were thrown into the sea and eventually found their way to Faversham in Kent. It may be that they were martyred in Rome, in fact, and their relics were brought to Soissons. Whatever the truth, they are still venerated as the patron saints of shoemakers and leather workers.
Crispina was also martyred in the Roman persecutions. She was a Numidian woman, married and with children, who refused to sacrifice to pagan gods on behalf of the Emperor and was therefore beheaded. Accounts of her trial exist, and she is mentioned several times by St Augustine
