Footnotes

  • Edmund E. Martin (1844-1885) formed a close friendship at with the poet Gerald Manley Hopkins whilst fellow students at Bailliol College, Oxford. In 1873 he was appointed minister "became minister of the distinguished Unitarian congregation in Hope Street, Liverpool...

The congregation prospered in the early period of his tenure but later fell off..." (ODNB).
