Henry Wilson (bishop)
Ordained presbyter in 1899, he began his career with a curacy at Christ Church, Hampstead, in London; after which he became Vicar of Norbiton. He was then Rural Dean of Cheltenham, until his appointment to the episcopate in 1929 as the third Bishop of Chelmsford. A proposal to expedite divorce – by having divorce cases heard in a magistrates court rather than a higher court – prompted his strenuous objection in 1944: "the landslide in sexual morals" meant that Christianity was "hanging by a thread in this country today". He resigned in 1950, and retired to Southwold. He had become a Doctor of Divinity (DD).
