Frederic Henry Chase (21 February 1853, London – 23 September 1925, Bexhill) was a British academic and Bishop of Ely.


The only son of Charles Frederic Chase, rector of St Andrew by the Wardrobe and St Anne Blackfriars, and Susan Mary Alliston. Chase was educated at King's College School, London and Christ's College, Cambridge, graduating in classics in 1876 after receiving the Powys Medal the previous year.[1]

He was ordained deacon in 1876 and priest in 1877, and briefly worked as curate of Sherborne before returning to Cambridge in 1879[2] He was a lecturer in divinity at Pembroke College, Cambridge from 1881 to 1890, and at Christ's College from 1893. In 1884 he became tutor of the Clergy Training School, Cambridge (now Westcott House), and in 1887 became principal of that college.[2] He was elected to give the Hulsean Lectures for 1900.[3] In late 1901 Chase was elected President of Queens' College, Cambridge and the following November he was also elected Norris Professor of Divinity.[2]

Three years later, on 18 October 1905, he was consecrated a bishop by Randall Davidson, Archbishop of Canterbury, at Westminster Abbey;[4] to serve as Bishop of Ely. He resigned as bishop in 1924 and died in 1925. He is buried in Brookwood Cemetery.
