hermit of Farne. He is described by Bede as the third hermit who lived on the Inner Farne, succeeding Cuthbert and Ethilwald, as an ‘athlete of Christ’, who was aged seventy when Bede was writing (c.721). The hermitage had become very draughty and Felgild was cured of sores on his face by applying to it a calf-skin previously used to seal the holes. There is no known cult or feast, but only a mention in Durham's Liber Vitae.
