The Right Reverend Allan Becher Webb

Webb was born in Calcutta in 1839, and received his university and theological education at various Oxford colleges. He became Vice-Principal of a theological college there for three years, and then Rector of a church in Warwickshire.

He was consecrated as Bishop of Bloemfontein (South Africa) in Inverness Cathedral on St Andrew's Day 1870, serving in Bloemfontein Diocese until 1883, and then as Bishop of Grahamstown (South Africa) until 1897, when he resigned through ill health. He then became Provost of St Andrew's Cathedral in Inverness, and assistant bishop for the Diocese of Moray, Ross and Caithness under Bishop Kelly.

After a brief return to Bloemfontein, his final move was to Salisbury Diocese as Dean, in 1900, before his death in 1907. He was the author of a number of publications on religious topics.
