The Very Reverend Herbert Mather

Herbert Mather was born in Lancaster in 1840. His university education was at St Andrew's University and at Trinity College, London. He became a priest in St David's in Wales in 1867. From 1870 he was the incumbent at St John's Cathedral, St John's, Newfoundland, and chaplain first to the Bishop of Newfoundland, and then to the Bishop of Nova Scotia.

In 1875 he moved to England, where he served as a priest until appointed Provost of St Andrew's Cathedral in Inverness in 1891, to serve again with Bishop Kelly who had been co-adjutor Bishop of Newfoundland during Mather's time in that area. Mather became Bishop of Antigua in 1897, and then, in 1905, assistant to the Bishop of Hereford.

On his departure from Inverness, in a ceremony in the Caledonian Hotel, the Cathedral congregation presented him with a pastoral staff and an illuminated address. The presentation was made by Mr Francis Darwin of Muirtown, on behalf of about 100 subscribers.
