Edward Stuart Talbot(1844-1934), Bishop of Winchester
Sitter in 21 portraits
Talbot was the first warden of Keble College, Oxford; he presided over the college for eighteen years. In 1888, he was appointed vicar of Leeds, where he remained for six years before being appointed Bishop of Rochester. He completed the scheme started by his predecessors of dividing this large diocese into a more rural area around Rochester and the more urban South London. He then completed the other task that he had inherited, of making the old church of St Saviour, Southwark, into the cathedral of the new diocese. In 1905, he was enthroned as Bishop of Southwark, and then in 1911 was transferred to become Bishop of Winchester, a post he retained for twelve years.
