Charles Baring

For other uses, see Charles Baring (disambiguation).

Charles Thomas Baring (1807–1879) was an English bishop, noted as an Evangelical.


He became a bishop at a period when Lord Palmerston, influenced by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury, was promoting Evangelicals.[1]

He was Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol, then Bishop of Durham from 1861 to 1879. He came into conflict with High Church clergy.[2] He suspended Francis Grey, rector of Morpeth, as Rural Dean, for wearing a stole of which he disapproved.[3]


He was a member of the Baring banking family. His father was Sir Thomas Baring, 2nd Baronet. Thomas Baring was his son.[4]
