Also known as St Britius of Tours, there is some information about his life gathered on this page, his feast day is on November 13, and the only church in the UK dedicated to him is at Brize Norton:


Sadly for St Brice, he is the patron saint of stomach disorders - how glamorous is that.

In addition to Stew 54's answer. Benthall Church
is somewhat overshadowed by Benthall Hall (National Trust). It appears that what was an earlier church (dedicated to St Brice, the only other being at Brize Norton, Oxon) was substantially lost during the defence of the hall in 1645, one of the skirmishes in the Civil War. It was not until 1667 that the church was rebuilt although in a local style. At that time the dedication was given as St Bartholomew.
