The Consecration of the New Church

The current church was consecrated on All Saints' Day 1862 by the Archbishop of Canterbury.  This report is from John Bull, 8th November 1862.  See the attachment.

The Archbishop appears to have visited again a year later!  See attachment from John Bull 7th November 1863.  The devotion of the Archbishop is explained by the fact that he was the father in law of the Rector, George Wingfield Bourke, who was married to his daughter, Mary Henrietta.  Mary Henrietta Bourke painted the picture of the 4th church which you can find on the page 'A Short History'.  The Honourable Reverend George Wingfield Bourke was himself one of the sons of the 5th Earl of Mayo and his son, Walter Longley Bourke, who was born in the year that his father came to Wold Newton, became the 8th Earl of Mayo.
