Nottingham Cathedral, England.

Son of County Court Judge H. R. Bagshawe, Edward studied at St. Mary’s College, Oscott, and took his BA at London University. He had planned to work in law, but instead joined the Brompton Oratory in 1849, and was ordained a priest in 1852. In 1871, he was consecrated by R. C. Bishop of Nottingham, and in 1874, became Bishop of Nottingham.

In 1901, Bagshawe’s health began to fail, and while in Rome in May that year he was encouraged to offer his resignation. As titular Bishop of Hypaepa (now Günlüce, Ödemiş, Turkey), he went to live in the Blue Nuns’ House at Hounslow. He became titular Archbishop of Seleucia in 1904. His works include:

  1. Among the Innocent of Heart, O Lord
  2. Saint Edward, England’s Gift from God
