    There is a little booklet about the Rev’d Dr John Lopes published, I think, privately at Eynsham. I am sure that there is an appendix about George De Serionne. Dr Lopes founded a number of mission churches and several times was declared bankrupt. He ended his public ministry as Catholic Chaplain at Cambridge where he guided and inspired Monsignor Alfred Gilbey, who later followed him as chaplain. He was a remarkable priest with a great love of the traditional Liturgy (and I notice above that he had Vespers at Eynsham)
