English nun, known as Boniface’s correspondent, not to be confused with Eadburga, daughter of Centwine, king of Wessex 676–685. Between 719 and 722 she sent two letters to Boniface: one to tell him that she had not yet been able to find the copy of a text she had been trying to send him and to ask him for some extracts from Scripture and for some Masses to be said for a deceased relative; the other, written with the abbess Eangyth, to tell him that she wanted to make a pilgrimage to Rome to receive absolution.
