History

William Grant Broughton (1788-1853) was ordained in 1807, made a Deacon and began serving at Eton College the same year he was married to Sarah Francis, 1818. In 1829, he traveled with his family to Australia to take up the position of Archdeacon of the Colony of N.S.W. In 1836 he became the first Bishop of Australia and was instrumental in the formation of several South Pacific dioceses — New Zealand, 1841; Tasmania, 1842; and the multiple of the Diocese of Australia, 1847 — becoming Bishop of Sydney and Metropolitan Australia in 1848. His 1850 conference, with the other 5 Colonial Bishops, led to the formation of the Australian Board of Missions.
