Rev. Edmund Baskerville Mynors

Rev. Edmund Baskerville Mynors (1823-1906)

Reverend Edmund Baskerville Mynors was the Rector of Ashley in Somerset.

Educated at St Mary’s Hall, Oxford (BA, 1845; MA, 1848), he became a Deacon in 1848 and was ordained a Priest by the Bishop of Hereford in 1849. For a while he was the Curate of East and West Cranmore in Somerset; in 1863 he became Rector of Ashley in the Diocese of Gloucester and Bristol. The patron of the living was the Chancellor of the Duchy of Cornwall, and the gross income from it was £220, plus the Rectory to live in. The population of his parish was small and the Reverend had the cure of a mere 90 souls.

According to Crockford’s Clerical Directory for 1896, Reverend Baskerville Mynors left Ashley in 1892. His address is now given as Farnley House, Dursley [Gloucestershire]. A few years later, in 1902, his address is given as Stanthill, Dursley. His last entry in Crockford’s appears in the 1906 edition.

Reverend Baskerville Mynors died in the June ¼ of 1906; the death was registered in the district of Wareham in Dorset.

This portrait does not appear in the Silvy daybooks, so the sitter probably visited the studio sometime between July 1863 and June 1864, the period covered by Volume 11, which is missing.
