Edward Venables Vernon Harcourt (1757-1847), Archbishop of York

Sitter associated with 10 portraits
Edward Vernon obtained his first bishopric, that of Carlisle, when he was just thirty-four years old. He held this post for sixteen years and established a reputation as a moderate church reformer. He was appointed Archbishop of York in 1808, and was most attentive to the needs of his diocese. He contributed generously to the restoration funds when York Minster was twice damaged by fire, was a generous benefactor, and promoted the training of schoolmasters. Vernon took the additional name of Harcourt on succeeding to the property of his cousin, Earl Harcourt, in 1830.
