(St.) was murdered at Clente-in-Cowbage, near
Winchelcumb, in Gloucestershire. The murder, says Roger of Wendover,
was miraculously notified at Rome by a white dove, which alighted on
the altar of St.
Peter's, bearing in its beak a scroll with these words:
In Clent cow pasture under a thorn,
Of head bereft, lies Kenelm king-born.
