A verse came up in the 'Best represents English Folksong' thread makes that claim, but was he really? I seem to remember he was from Bristol, which would make him an Englishman, or maybe Briton in those days, although possibly of Gallic descent. Not far as the seagull flies, of course. Can any scholar clear this up for me? Chris.

This has already been discussed at length in at least This Thread The Wordsworth Dictionary of Saints gives:
"Patrick's exact birthplace is unclear; it is thought to have been somewhere between the mouths of the Severn and the Clyde, but some claim he was born at Bolougne-sur-mer or at Kilpatrick, near Dunbarton.
His father Calpurnius was a Romano-British official and deacon and his grandfather was a Christian priest. He was carried off to slavery in Ireland by a raiding party when 16.

With the above cross reference, may I now suggest that any further discussion continue in the older thread, allowing this one to 'lie fallow' ?
