Charles Girdlestone (1797-1881) Church of England Biblical scholar. "Girdlestone was a man of sincere piety, and an energetic and enlivening preacher. Both as a politician and as a churchman he chose in early life the via media-reflected in his sermon, Affection between Churchmen and Dissenters (1833). But after middle age he sided with the evangelicals and conservatives, though always an advocate of church reform and reform of convocation, of revision of the prayer book and also of the Authorized Version of the Bible. In later life he spoke of `those noxious errors, Tractarian and Neological'. His principal work was his commentary on the Bible, which occupied him for several years."--W. A. Greenhill, `Girdlestone, Charles (1797-1881)', rev. H. C. G.
