Peter Pilkington, Baron Pilkington of Oxenford
Pilkington was educated at Dame Allan's School, Newcastle where he came to faith and developed both his love of scholarship and his combative personality. In 1952 he went up to Jesus College, Cambridge and read history, being influenced by Conservative-minded figures such as Maurice Cowling, Herbert Butterfield and Michael Oakeshott. He was ordained as an Anglican priest in 1959 and was a schoolmaster (history teacher and chaplain – later Conduct (senior chaplain)) at Eton College from 1962 to 1976 (Master in College – housemaster of the scholars' house – for much of the time), headmaster of The King's School, Canterbury from 1975 to 1986 and High Master of St Paul's School, London from 1986 to 1992.
His wife died in 1997. He was survived by two daughters.
