St. Edburga of Repton,
Abbess of Repton
(Died AD 700)

Little is known of this lady. She appears to have been a daughter of King Aldwulf of East Anglia and became Abbess of Repton, in Derbyshire, under the patronage of her King Wulfhere of Mercia, the husband of her second cousin, St. Ermenhilda. She appears in the Life of Guthlac. Edburga died around AD 700 and was either buried at or later translated to Southwell Minster where her relics were revered in the Middle Ages.
