St. Margaret Clitheroe
Margaret Middleton was born in York in 1556, lived there all her life, and died there on 25 March 1586. At 15, she married John Clitherow and three years later became a Catholic. Imprisoned for not going to church, she taught herself to read and later ran a small school for her own and her neighbours' children. Her husband remained Protestant, but allowed her to hide priests in their house. In 1586, the secret hiding places were discovered and Margaret was put on trial. She refused to plead to the charge in order to prevent her family being endangered, which at that time meant you were automatically guilty. She was therefore punished by being crushed to death.
