Edward Were

Edward Ash Were (14 November 1846–8 April 1915[1]) was an Anglican Suffragan Bishop in the latter part of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th. He was educated at Rugby School[2] and New College, Oxford.[3] After graduation he was an Assistant Master at Winchester College for ten years before becoming Vicar of North Bradley in Wiltshire. After a spell as Chaplain to the Bishop of Southwell he was the long serving Bishop of Derby.[4] In 1909 in a sideways move he was translated to the Diocese of Lichfield to be their Suffragan.[5] His son, who perished in the First World War, was also a distinguished clergyman.[6]
