Edward Francis "Ed" Condry (born 25 April 1953) is the suffragan Bishop of Ramsbury in the Diocese of Salisbury and the former Canon Treasurer at Canterbury Cathedral in the Church of England.

Early life and family[edit]

Ed Condry was born to Roy and Muriel Condry and attended Latymer Upper School in Hammersmith, London. He read for his BA at the University of East Anglia and for his BLitt at Exeter College, Oxford, graduating in 1974 and 1977 respectively. He then went on to study for his doctorate (a DPhil) from Oxford University and was awarded his doctorate in 1980 before training for the priesthood. Condry has since received an MBA through the Open University in 2002. He married Sarah Long (a school teacher) in 1977, and they now have four adult children: two sons, Felix and Jerome, and two daughters, Hannah and Frances.

Ordained ministry[edit]

Condry studied for the priesthood at Lincoln Theological College, being awarded his Diploma in Theology (DipTh; accredited by the University of Nottingham) in 1981 and being ordained deacon in 1982. He then served his three-year title post as assistant curate at Weston Favell, one year into which he was ordained a priest. His first incumbency was as vicar at Bloxham with Milcombe and South Newington from 1985 until he became rector at the Rugby Team Ministry in 1993.

In 2002, Condry was appointed Canon Treasurer at Canterbury Cathedral.

Episcopal ministry[edit]

10 Downing Street announced on 19 June 2012 that Condry had been nominated suffragan Bishop of Ramsbury in the Diocese of Salisbury. He was consecrated as a bishop at Westminster Abbey on 21 September and welcomed (enthroned/installed) at Salisbury Cathedral on 23 September 2012.
