Frederick Richards Wynne (19 June 1827 – 2 November 1896)[1] was the 6th[2] Bishop of Killaloe and Clonfert.[3]

Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, he was ordained in 1850.[4] After a curacy in Carnteel he held incumbencies at St Mary, Kilkenny and St Mathias, Dublin. A Canon Residentiary at both Dublin’s cathedrals (Christ Church and St Patrick's)[5] he was also Professor of Pastoral Theology at the University of Dublin. In 1893 he became the Bishop of Killaloe and Clonfert,[6] a post he held until his sudden death.[7] He had become a Doctor of Divinity (DD).

His son Henry Vynne also became a priest, and was Vicar of the parish church in Yapton, Sussex. A daughter married another priest, the rev. W. H. Harper; while his third daughter Florence Anne Wynne married in 1902 the architect and architectural historian Philip Mainwaring Johnston.[8]
