Saint Hugh was of noble birth, the son of William, Lord of Avalon. He was the eldest child, and his mother wished him to be in the service of God. Saint Hugh’s mother died when he was 8, and the Saint was entrusted to his uncle, through whom he studied at the monastery school attached to the Priory of St. Marchellus.
Saint Hugh built a friendship with a swan, which followed him around Lincoln, even watching over him as he slept. Saint Hugh also exorcised many demons from possessed individuals.
Saint Hugh entered the novitiate, that is, he entered the order, but had not yet taken final vows, at the age of 14. Having shown great devotion to the Faith, was allowed to take the vow after only a year, which is particularly early, becoming a monk at the young age of 15. Saint Hugh became a deacon at the age of 19, and King Henry II (1154–1189) requested him as head of the first English Carthusian monastery.
Assuring the build of a permanent monastic residence and attracting many visitors to the Carthusian monastery, Saint Hugh was very influential. He often had King Henry II as a visitor, and it was during these visits that he told Henry of his disagreement of the vacancies of the bishoprics. Following the Saint’s advice, King Henry called for a council of bishops and barons to fill the vacant positions, and in May of 1186, the Saint was voted Bishop of Lincoln. He asked for a second vote, for which the results were the same. Reluctantly, Saint Hugh accepted the seat.
As Bishop, Saint Hugh made it very clear the Church was separated from the State, but the King was still very powerful in the Church. For example, when Saint Hugh wanted to excommunicate one of King Henry’s subjects, he made this move with diplomacy, so as not to be harassed. Also during his Bishopric, an earthquake ruined the Cathedral of Lincoln, so Saint Hugh made efforts to enlarge it while repairing the damages. It was also said that he visited lepers at his own risk, healing them of their disease.
Saint Hugh was a simple, virtuous man who dedicated his life to God, and preached to others about his love and devotion. His profound effect on the Catholic Faith in England is only second to Thomas Beckett. Pope Honorius III canonized Saint Hugh in 1220.
Saint Hugh is buried at the Lincoln Cathedral in England. Part of his white linen stole still survives at the Parkminster Charterhouse in West Sussex, England.
