We are not divided,
All one body we,
One in hope and doctrine
One in charity ...

Notes on Life and Works

An often-published antiquarian, novelist, and travel writer, Baring-Gould was born in Exeter and educated at Clare College, Cambridge. In 1864 he became curate of Horbury, Yorkshire, but moved to become rector of Lew Trenchard, Devon, in 1881, when he inherited his family estate there, and stayed until his death. William Ernest Purcell wrote a biography in Onward Christian Soldier: A Life of Sabine Baring-Gould, Parson, Squire, Novelist, Antiquary (London: Longmans, Green, 1957; PR 4062 .P85 Trinity College Library).
