He was admitted deacon following his graduation, and ordained priest in 1865. His first curacy was at St Peter in the East, Oxford, but two years later he was appointed as Curate of Bisley, Gloucestershire, in 1867. After service as Assistant Chaplain to one of the English churches in Rome from 1871 to 1872, he was briefly Curate of Longsdon, Worchestershire (1872–74), and Vicar of Forthampton, near Tewkesbury (1874–77). In 1877 he accepted from Sir Henry Bunbury the vicarage of Mildenhall, Suffolk,[4] in the diocese of Ely, which he held till 1898. He was made Rural Dean of Mildenhall in 1894, and from 1898 held an honorary canonry in Ely Cathedral. He was appointed Archdeacon of Sudbury in 1901.[5]
