Edward Domett Shaw[1] (5 October 1860 – 5 November 1937) was Bishop of Buckingham from 1914 to 1921. He was educated at Forest School,Walthamstow and Oriel College, Oxford.[2] As a young man he played first class cricket, both for his university and Middlesex.[3]

In 1887 he was appointed Headmaster of Bishops Stortford School and was ordained two years later. In 1891 he married Agnes Gilbey with whom he had ten children.[4] From 1894 until 1910 he was the vicar of High Wycombe when he was appointed Archdeacon of Buckingham. In 1913 it was announced that he would be the first Bishop of Buckingham,[5] a post he held until 1921 when his duties were redefined to undertake the role of Assistant Bishop (as the Archdeacon of Oxford) across the whole diocese.[6] Following his death in 1937 the The Times commented in its obituary that
although his churchmanship was very definite his kind nature ensured he could always see the good in other people’s natures.[7]

His son, Edward Jr., also played first-class cricket and was killed in the First World War, as was his other son Bernard. His only surviving son, Robert, played first-class cricket and became a Captain in the Royal Navy, serving in the Second World War.
