Transcription of article


We are pleased to announce that the governing body of Christ Church have offered the vacant charge of these parishes to the Rev. William Carmont Allsebrook, M.A., who has accepted the same. The new Vicar will not come into residence, we understand, till after Midsummer. We are confident that he will be cordially welcomed by the parishioners, and, have every hope that his association with these villages will be of the happiest description, and productive of much good, under God's blessing, to the Church and to those committed to his charge. The Rev. W, C. Allsebrook. graduated at Jesus College, Oxford, took his B.A. degree in 1891, and M.A. in 1895. He was ordained at Liverpool in 1891, and became priest in 1892. His first curacy was that of Great Crosby, Liverpool, from 1891 to 1893; and from 1894 to 1897 he was Curate of Stratford-on-Avon. He is now Chaplain of Christ Church and of New College, Oxford, and was Chaplain of Jesus College from 1897 to 1901. He was also Senior Proctor for the University 1899 and 1900.
