Recent historiography discusses the English Reformation focusing on the viewpoint of British Isles on one hand and Catholic survival in early modern Protestant Britain on the other. This article focuses on a gentry family named Mostyn in North Wales who were deeply associated with the St. Winefride’s Well in Flintshire, Wales. St. Winefride’s Well was so called outside sacred space since the middle ages, which was criticized and attacked by the Protestant church as superstition. It was transformed into an important nucleus for the Catholic community since the Reformation era. Hence, this paper discusses intersection of the two abovementioned topics of recent historiography of the English Reformation.  Further consideration revealed that the Mostyn family was divided into two lines, that is to say, Mostyn of Mostyn and Mostyn of Talacre. The former accepted the English Reformation and the Church of England and the latter stayed within the Catholic faith. Mostyn of Talacre protected the St. Winefride’s Well as Catholic gentry, and the Jesuit missionary kept the Well and its chapel as an important Catholic threshold in the British Isles. On the other hand, from Mostyn of Mostyn, Sir Thomas Mostyn, although himself a Protestant, was called “a man not very rigid against Catholics”, and was sympathetic towards the Catholics.  Through its consideration of the Mostyn family, this article reveals that not only the Catholic gentry, but rather the existence of groups sympathetic towards the Catholics was important for the Catholic survival in the British Isles.
