Mike, and indeed anyone else, I'm just interested in learning more about Cædwalla. If you know any more, let me know.

I know this response is coming 4 years after the question, but I hate to leave things like that hanging.
According to the saint index at www.catholic-forum.com, which is good for this sort of thing, St. Caedwalla was a king of Wessex, who went about pillaging and fighting wars in the way that 7th century kings were prone to. After suffering a wound in battle he was converted, abdicated, and went to Rome to be baptised. He died 10 days after recieving the sacrament from then pope St. Sergius I. His feast day is April 20.
