When William Lockhart died in London in 1892, The Tablet declared that perhaps no man, except Cardinal Manning, had so strong a hold on varying classes and masses of men. An outstanding figure, he was received into the church by Fr Gentili, and immediately joined the Institute of Charity. He is remembered for founding two important missions in London; Our Lady and St Joseph, Kingsland and St Etheldreda’s, Ely Place. Alongside his pastoral labours, he encouraged young writers and publishers and helped run several Catholic journals.
