Lionel George Bridges Justice Ford (3 September 1865-27 March 1932) was an Anglican priest who served as Dean of York after two headmasterships at eminent English public schools.[1]

Ford was educated at Repton School and King's College, Cambridge where he won the Chancellor's Classical Medal[3][4] and was a member of the Pitt Club.[5] He became a school master at Eton, and was ordained a curate in the Anglican church in 1893.[6] In 1898 and 1899 he played cricket for minor county Buckinghamshire.[7]

Ford became headmaster of Repton School in 1901 and in 1910 moved to Harrow, where he was headmaster until 1925.[8] in 1925 he became the Dean at York, a post he was to hold until his death on Easter Sunday seven years later.[9] His memorial is in the restored Zouche Chapel.[10]
