Arthur Barton (bishop)
Born in 1881, the son of the Rev. Arthur Robinson Barton (1846–1900) and his wife Anne Jane Hayes, Barton had three sisters and an older brother, Samuel (1876–1908), who died at sea.
On March 31, 1914, Barton was instituted as Rector of St Mark's, Dundela, Belfast, remaining there until 1925, and married Zoe Dorothy Victoria Cosgrave a few weeks after his arrival, on 21 April 1914. This was the home parish of C. S. Lewis, who attended Barton's old school in Watford. Lewis referred affectionately to Barton in his autobiography.
