Biography: HENRY POPE was the youngest brother of Dr. G. U. Pope. He was born in Devonshire in 1832. He was accepted by the S.P.G. in 1854 and went out to Madras, in which diocese three of his elder brothers were then working as priests. He was trained at Sullivan's Gardens; ordained deacon in 1855, and priest in 1856, by the Bishop of Madras. He worked for two years at Ramnad and for a like period at Nazareth, and returned home in 1859. Between that date and 1866 he was an Assistant Master in Dr. G. U. Pope's celebrated school at Ootacamund. On the recommendation of Bishop Gell, he was, in 1866, appointed a Chaplain by the Secretary of State for India. He worked at nine different stations in seventeen years; but these changes had nothing to do with his theological views. He died at Madras in 1885. During his furloughs he kept his terms at Cambridge. He graduated B.A. in 1878 and M. A. in 1881.
