William Robert Fremantle was the Dean of Ripon from 1876 [1] until his death on 8 March 1895.[2]

He was born on 30 August 1807[3] and educated at Westminster and Christ Church, Oxford. In 1828 he became a Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, and Curate of Swanbourne. He held incumbencies in Pitchcott and Claydon[disambiguation needed] before his elevation to the Deanery.[4]

He was the brother of Thomas Fremantle, 1st Baron Cottesloe, and therefore uncle of the Hon William Fremantle, who succeeded Fremantle as Dean of Ripon.
