John Keble is best remembered for the Oxford College founded in his memory; his role in the seminal Oxford Movement, and for the hymns that he wrote and which are still sung today.
Both John Keble and his brother were educated at Corpus Christi College, Oxford and followed their father into the church.
John Keble was curate of the Cotswold villages of Eastleach, Southrop and Coln St Aldwyn, with his younger brother Tom.
John left Fairford and the Cotswolds to become vicar of Hursley in Hampshire where he stayed until his death.
His brother Tom became vicar of Bisley, near Stroud.This is a fascinating, informative and highly researched account of a great and distinguished family, whose legacy continues today.
