William Dalrymple Maclagan (1826-1910), Bishop of Lichfield and Archbishop of York

Sitter in 13 portraits
Ordained on leaving university, he served in the Church of England thereafter. In 1869, he was made Rector of the London parish of Newington and six years later became Vicar of St. Mary's Abbots, Kensington. In 1878, he became Bishop of Lichfield and in 1891 he was appointed Archbishop of York, a position that he held for the next seventeen years. He spent much time in visiting his clergy, and within just three years became personally acquainted with the six hundred and fifty parishes of his diocese.
