Chamberlaine, The Rev. Henry Fitzackerly

A prebendary of Salisbury Cathedral, and uncle of Harry Gilmore

"a gentleman of about fifty-five years of age, unmarried, possessed of a comfortable private independence.... He was a very handsome man, about six feet high, with large light grey eyes, a straight nose, and a well cut chin. His lips were thin, but his teeth were perfect,- only that they had been supplied by a dentist. His grey hair encircled his head, coming round upon his forehead in little wavy curls, in a manner that had conquered the hearts of spinsters by the dozen in the cathedral" - The Vicar of Bullhampton
