Charles Green (bishop)

Charles Alfred Howell Green (19 August 1864 in Llanelli, Wales – 7 May 1944 at Bishopcourt, Bangor) was the first bishop of the newly established diocese of Monmouth (1921–1928)[1] and subsequently Bishop of Bangor (25 Sept. 1928–1944) during which time he also served as Archbishop of Wales (1934–1944)[2]. During the latter period he was assisted by a bishop of Maenan, the only instance of a place-name being given for this purpose subsequent to Disestablishment.

Born on 19 August 1864 and educated at Charterhouse and Keble College, Oxford he was ordained in 1889[3] and began his ministry with a curacy at Aberdare. Subsequently Vicar then Rural Dean of the area he was then appointed to be Archdeacon of Monmouth, a post he held until his elevation to the Episcopate

Cultured but with a reputation for authoritarianism[4], a representative of the High Church tradition, Green wrote a work on the church dedications of the Llandaff and Monmouth dioceses and the definitive guide to the constitution of the Church in Wales.
