Francis Paget (20 March 1851 – 2 August 1911) was an English theologian, author and the 33rd Bishop of Oxford.


He was the second son of the noted surgeon James,[1] and brother of Luke (sometime Bishop of Stepney and of Chester).

He was educated at St Marylebone Grammar School, then at Shrewsbury School and Christ Church, Oxford.[2] Ordained priest he became preacher at Whitehall in 1882 and Vicar of Bromsgrove in 1885. An eminent scholar,[3] he was subsequently Regius Professor of Pastoral Theology at the University of Oxford and Dean at his old college.

After the death of William Stubbs in April 1901, Paget was recommended to succeed him as Bishop of Oxford.[4] He was elected bishop the following month, and consecrated by the Archbishop of Canterbury in St Paul's Cathedral 29 June 1901.[5] A couple of days later he was received by Edward VII and invested as Chancellor of the Order of the Garter,[6] an office held by the Bishop of Oxford between 1837 and 1937.

Paget served as bishop until his death in 1911.[7]

Paget's son Bernard was a General in the Army, and another son, Edward, was the first Anglican Archbishop of Central Africa.
