Saint Margaret of Antioch.

Margaret, Virgin Martyr during the persecutions of the reign of Emperor Diocletian, A.D. 304.
Margaret is called Marina in the East. Devotion to her was brought to the West by returning crusaders and she became one of the most popular saints in England. In Norfolk, many churches are dedicated to her honour.
The legend is that Margaret was the daughter of a pagan priest at Antioch in Pisanda. The imperial prefect of the Province, Olybrius, wanted to take her to live with him. When she refused, he denounced her as a Christian and put her in prison, threatening to kill her if she did not change her mind!
By night, in the prison, Satan appeared to her in the form of a dragon. She had no weapon but a cross in her hand. This she plunged down the dragon's throat and choked him. Hence, her emblem is the Dragon's head with a sword down its throat, the hilt being in the form of a cross, Margaret was beheaded on the following morning.

Her feast day is July 20th. Felthorpe Saint Margaret's Church is a beautiful church. It has 7 coloured glass windows erected by the Ward & Hughes group of stained glass makers. Inside the church is a gravestone built into the wall, it dates from 1693 and portrays a skull and crossbones.
There is an octagonal font dating from Victorian age with carved quartrefoils, there is also a stone carving of The Last Supper, this is called the reredos.
