Saints Kyneburga, Kyneswide and Tibba were saints in the the 7th century.


Kyneburga (d. c. 680) (also called Cyneburh) and Kyneswide (Cyneswitha) were sisters, the daughters of King Penda of Mercia (who strongly opposed Christianity) and the sisters of Peada of Mercia. Their mother was Queen Cyneswide. Tibba is believed to have been a relative.


Kyneburga married Alhfrith of Deira but later founded an abbey for both monks and nuns in Castor, in the Soke of Peterborough. She became abbess and was later joined by Kyneswide and Tibba. Kyneswide succeeded Kyneburga as abbess and she was later succeeded by Tibba.

Their relics are in Peterborough Abbey.[1]
