Daniel Sandford (Bishop of Tasmania)
He was born in Glasgow on 25 July 1831 the son of Professor (later Sir) Daniel Kyte Sandford, professor of Greek at Glasgow University, and his wife "Miss Charnock". His paternal grandfather was Daniel Sandford, Bishop of Edinburgh.
He was Chaplain to the Bishop of Edinburgh. During this time he lived at Ashfield Cottage on Greenhill Gardens in western Edinburgh. In 1864 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. His proposer was Peter Guthrie Tait.
Subsequently a vicar, then canon within the Edinburgh area he was elevated to the colonial episcopate in 1883, with the title of Bishop of Tasmania. Returning to Great Britain six years later he became Rector of Boldon and coadjutor to Joseph Lightfoot and Brooke Foss Westcott, two successive Bishops of Durham. He retired from the parish of Boldon and the position as assistant bishop in late 1902, owing to his poor heath.
