There is a Treacle Well in Lewis Caroll's Alice books, based that at Binsey near Oxford. Frideswide was the Abbess of Binsey Priory! :D Feb 12, 2017

      "treacle" means good, sweet, wholesome, beneficial - from a world where sugar wasn't available! A treacle well was a healing well.

      Treacle Well! Need info. The Saint is not in my fave snarky Book of Saints, "Saints Preserve Us."
      Read the Borman book and enjoy the almost endless descriptions of fancy fabric and jewels.

      I have admired your Fortean name for a long time. I thought it sounded a bit Celtic or Norse, but I had never seen it before so I was just guessing while admiring it. This week, I read "The Private Lives of the Tudors," by Tracy Borman. It's a wonderful book, and in it, I discovered the impeccable Lady-in-waiting Frideswide Strelly. Is this you?!
