Augustine Scriven (1852–1916) was an eminent Anglican priest in the last decades of the nineteenth century and the first two of the twentieth.[1] He was born in Spernall, Sambourne, Warwickshire[2] and educated at St Mary Hall, Oxford[3] and ordained in 1875.[4] After curacies at Kirkham and Frindsbury[5] he held incumbencies at Martinhoe[6] and St Peter, Rochester. In 1884 he became Archdeacon of Vancouver[7] a post he held until his elevation to the Episcopate as Bishop of British Columbia in 1915.[8] Less than a year later he died on 21 July 1916.[9]
