haleBishop Mathew Hale

Mathew Blagden Hale (1811-1895) was the first Bishop of Perth, arriving early in 1858 on the Nile, following his consecration at Lambeth the year before. In June, he established at The Cloisters the Bishop's School - which eventually became today's Hale School. He left in 1875 to become Bishop of Brisbane, and was followed by Bishop Parry.
