Educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge,[6][7] he was ordained into the priesthood in 1890.[8] His first post was a curacy in Margate, after which he was Vicar of All Saints’, Westbrook,[9] then St Mark’s, North End,[10] before his appointment to the episcopate.[11] He became a Doctor of Divinity (DD).
