“George Huntington (1825-1905), Church of England clergyman. Huntington was a devout high-churchman who initially provoked evangelical opposition in Tenby. A mission conducted there in 1877 by ritualist clergy under his auspices led to a controversy involving the bishop of St David’s (see Three Letters on the Subject of the Late Tenby Mission, 1877). The hostility gradually disappeared, however, and Huntington was able to restore his church with the support of his parishioners” (Oxford DNB).
