History

The Chavasse Family

The family of College founder Bishop Francis James Chavasse and his wife, Edith, was one of the most remarkable of late-Victorian Britain.

They include among their number Olympic athletes, leading churchmen, and some of the most decorated soldiers of the First World War, including the only person to win the Victoria Cross twice during the conflict.
