Gibson, The Rev. Thomas

The Rector of St. Peter’s-cum-Pumpkin, near Exeter, and a minor canon at the Cathedral. His love affairs are described at great length and provide the comic highlights in He Knew He Was Right..

"He was a nice-looking man enough, with sandy hair, and a head rather bald, with thin lips, and a narrow nose.... He had a house and an income, and all Exeter had long decided that he was a man who would certainly marry.... He was fair game, and unless he surrendered himself to he bagged before long, would subject himself to just and loud complaint" - He Knew He Was Right
