This chapter presents a short biography of John Mason Neale. He was born in Holborn, London, on 24 January 1818. His parents were the Revd Cornelius Neale and Susanna Neale. He died at age forty-eight on 6 August 1866 at Sackville College and was buried in East Grinstead parish churchyard. By the end of his career, which spanned about thirty years, he had become a leading figure in the Anglo–Catholic revival. In all his endeavours, it was the extraordinary energy and enthusiasm with which he undertook the task that ensured a lasting place for him in the annals and the ongoing life of the Anglican Church.
