Christopher Robinson
d. 1597

CHRISTOPHER Robinson, priest and martyr, was a Carlisle man present at the
death of John Boste. He also had been ordained abroad and returned to his native county to exercise 'a religion under penalty'. It is known that he said Mass at Alston Moor, at Wetheral, at Thomas Warwick's house at Harraby, and for the Hiltons at Burton Hall, now in the midst of Warcop firing range.
So he served and was harboured by the 'recusant' families along the Eden valley. He was betrayed and taken at Johnby Hall near Greystoke in ~ and soon after his capture was visited in gaol by Hcnry Robinson, P'.ovost of Queen's, Oxford, and the followihg year Bishop of Carlisle. There is a tradition that this was brother speaking to brother. The pain of Christian division reached into families. He was executed at Carlisle, near to the site of the TV studio. The pardon granted to Leonard and Margaret Musgrave
for the capital offence of harbouring him contains the only extant docum~ntation of precisely w'iy he, and all the seminary priests, died - 'quod sacerdos in A.,glia maneret'; that he came into England as a priest, staying to do his work and take the consequences the law enjoined.

He is held as Blessed among Cumbria Roman Catholics.

Our Lady and St Joseph's Church, Warwick Square, Carlisle has a sculpture and a booklet with a full explanation of this man's witness.
