Compare George de Malynes, No. 44, and Peter Heylyn, No. 73a.

From The Martyrdom of Saint George of Cappadocia: Titular Patron of England…(1614), sigs. A2-A2V:

The Poet in his Faerie Queene, playing vpon the Etymologie of this Name, doth also allude to Tilth, though after a vaine, but very wittie manner, thus:

Thence shee thee brought into this lond….

Of S. Georges entitulation to the patronage of England, that Poet in the person of an holy propheticall Father, instructing the Champion of the crosse, after hee had grauely perswaded to the love of heauenly thins, hath these Verses:

For thou amongst those Saints whom thou dost see,
Shalt be a Saint, and thine owneNations friend,
And PATRON: thou S.George shalt called be,
S.George of merry England, the signe of victorie.

Lib. I. Cant. 10. Stanz. 60.

In S. Georges English birth the Poet followes the vulgar errour, of purpose, to fit his fabulous morall argument the rather.
