Arthur Perowne

Arthur William Thomson Perowne (13 June 1867 – 9 April 1948) was an Anglican bishop in Britain. He was the first Bishop of Bradford and, from 1931, was the Bishop of Worcester.[1]


Arthur Perowne was born into a distinguished ecclesiastical family: his father was John James Stewart Perowne, sometime Bishop of Worcester. He was educated at Haileybury and Imperial Service College and King's College, Cambridge.[2][3]

Ordained in 1894, he began his ministry as a curate at Hartlebury[4] after which he was Vicar of St Philip and St James Hallow, Rural Dean of Edgbaston,[5] Prebendary of Exeter and finally (before his ordination to the episcopate) Archdeacon of Plymouth.

Initially the first Bishop of Bradford (1920-1931), he was translated to Worcester in 1931.[6]

In 1895 he married Helena Frances Oldnall-Russell (1869-1922). They had three sons: Francis Edward Perowne (1898-1988), Stewart Perowne, a diplomat, archaeologist and historian, and Leslie Arthur Perowne (1906-1997), sometime Head of Music at the BBC who was responsible for bringing Albert Ketèlbey out of retirement to conduct a huge BBC Ketèlbey Concert at the Royal Albert Hall prior to World War II.

A keen fisherman,[1] in retirement Arthur Perowne lived in Gloucester with his second wife, Mabel (1886-1968), the second daughter of Thomas Henry Bailey of Wyldcroft in Wokingham, whom he had married in 1926.
