Robarts, Mark

The Vicar of Framley Church, and for a short time a prebendary at Barchester Cathedral. Educated at Harrow and Oxford with his friend Lord Lufton, who became his brother-in-law. Most prominent in Framley Parsonage, and in The Last Chronicle of Barset, where he was on the Clerical Commission in the Crawley case.

"In person he was manly, tall, and fair-haired, with a square forehead, denoting intelligence rather than thought, and clear white hands, filbert nails, and a power of dressing himself in such a manner that no one should ever observe of him that his clothes were either good or bad, shabby or smart" - Framley Parsonage
