Very obscure Cornish woman saint of very early times. She is probably one of the daughters of Brychan, also called Ilud or Juliana; her church and cross are at Luxulyan (Cornwall). She is said to have suffered a violent death at the hands of a robber who had already stolen from her. She had often been confused with Julitta; for example Tintagel is listed as dedicated to Julitta, although the original dedication may have been to Juliot. Her feast-day is ‘not certainly known’; her parish feast is on the Sunday nearest 29 June.
