Louis George Mylne (1843 – 1921) was the Bishop of Bombay from 1876[1] until 1897. Born into a colonial family,[2] he was educated at Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh and Corpus Christi College, Oxford before being ordained in 1867. After a curacy in North Moreton he became a Tutor at Keble College, Oxford before elevation to the episcopate.[3] After 21 years he returned to incumbencies in Alvechurch and Marlborough. A prolific author,[4] his Times obituary noted that although he

"belonged to the older school of high churchmen, he was able to work harmoniously with men within and without the Church whose opinions did not agree with his own[5]
