Shute Barrington Biography
Shute Barrington (17341826), youngest son of the 1st Viscount Barrington, was educated at Eton College and Oxford, and after holding some minor dignities was made bishop of Llandaff in 1769. In 1782 he was translated to Salisbury and in 1791 to Durham. He was a vigorous Protestant, though willing to grant Roman Catholics "every degree of toleration short of political power and establishment." He published several volumes of sermons and tracts, and wrote the political life of his brother, William Wildman Shute Barrington.
