John Richard Satterthwaite (17 November 1925 - 23 May 2014)[1] was Bishop of Gibraltar and at the same time Bishop of Fulham (the suffragan bishop charged by the Bishop of London with the oversight of Anglican congregations in North and Central Europe), during which appointments he was called "Bishop of Fulham and Gibraltar".[1] In 1980, when the new Diocese in Europe was created from the union of those two jurisdictions, he became Bishop in Europe ("Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe" in full)[2] in the last third of the 20th century.

Satterthwaite was educated at the University of Leeds and the College of the Resurrection, Mirfield. He began his ordained ministry with curacies at St Barnabas's Carlisle and St Michael Paternoster Royal in the City of London, after which he was Vicar of St Dunstan-in-the-West before being ordained to the episcopate.[3] He died on 23 May 2014.[4]
