From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Moore Richard Neligan (b 6 January 1863 - d 22 November 1922) was the Anglican Bishop of Auckland during the first decade of the 20th century [1] . Born in Dublin he was educated at Reading School and Trinity College, Dublin [2] before embarking on an ecclesiastical career with a curacy at Sculcoates[3]. Incumbencies at East Dereham, Lancaster Gate [4] and Paddington followed before he was elevated to the colonial episcopate in 1903. Ill health prompted his return from New Zealand in 1910[5]and he served the remainder of his career as Rector of Ford, Northumberland[6].
