Hook Walter Farquhar

Hook, Walter Farquhar (1798-1875). the nephew of Theodore Hook, was educated at Winchester and Oxford. He was vicar of Leeds from 1837 to 1859, when he became Dean of Chichester. Dean Hook belonged to the High Church party, and gave his support to the earlier numbers of the Tracts for the Times, but abandoned the movement when it seemed to him to show a Romanising tendency. He wrote Lives of the Archbishops of. Canterbun/ (1860-76), a Church Didionary (1842), etc.
