Re: St Thomas of Canterbury

re our post below on Lagarde Viaur, Ginny Jenkins adds
Churches and other sites dedicated to St Thomas a Becket or St George are generally accepted to be as a result of the English presence here during the 100 years war. Cahuzac sur Vere also has a church dedicated to St Thomas. Puycelsi had one dedicated to St George. There is a hamlet near Septfonds called St George but someone who lives there doubts the English connection and after Brexit this may be a wise policy
If anyone else knows of a church or chapel dedicated to St George or St Thomas I’d be very interested to know as it will help me map how far inland the English or rather Gascons reached
