Richard le Breton

Richard le Breton (or Richard de Brito) was one of the four knights who murdered Saint Thomas Becket. He is said to have broken his sword when attacking Thomas Becket. He eventually retired to the island of Jersey. One of his descendants was Lillie Langtry, the mistress of Edward VII.

There is a gravestone for one of the le Bretons from Jersey in St. Thomas Church in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England, among its many hatchments and memorial stones.
