Our venerable and God-bearing Father Kingsmark (also Cynfarch, Cynmarch, Kynemark) was a monk, Scottish chieftain, and disciple of St. Dubricius of Caerleon in the 5th century. He later lived in Wales, where he grew to such renown for his holiness, that soon after his death he was glorified by the Welsh faithful. St. Kingsmark is said to have been married to a granddaughter of St. Brychan of Brecknock.
