He served first as a clergyman, and ultimately as Apostolic coadjutor. During his later years these tales were related to Evelyn Ward Everett-Green (1856-1932), a prolific English novelist, which were "afterwards committed to writing striving as far as possible to reproduce the spirit and phraseology of the narrator." For Everett-Green see Sutherland, Victorian Fiction, p. 218 and Kemp, Mitchell and Trotter, Edwardian Fiction, pp. 119-120.
