Charles Scott (bishop)
Scott was born into an ecclesiastical family: his father was the Rev. John Scott, sometime Vicar of St Mary, Hull. He was named for his godfather, Charles Perry (Bishop of Melbourne) and educated at Charterhouse and Jesus College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1870. Ordained in 1871, he was a Curate at St Peter, Eaton Square before going to China as a missionary. In 1880 he was appointed Bishop in North China, a post he held until 1913. In 1889 he married Frances Emily Burrows, daughter of the Oxford historian Montagu Burrows. He died on 13 February 1927.
