  1. Maybe someone remembers an old classmate of mine at Xavs one Brian Morgan from St Anne’s Ancoats? Haven’t heard anything solid about him for years. There was a rumour manmy years back (as yet unsubstantiated) that he had met the daughter of an Anglican bishop and from that relationship there was a child followed shortly thereafter by a marriage. The rumour was that Brian then followed up by becolming an Anglican vicar. All this is unsubstantiated rumour but I wonder if ANYONE else had heard the same rumour or indeed heard the truth?

    • Not heard that one John. The only Anglican vicar reference I do know about was a classmate Robert Gleason who swopped over to C of E, and became a chaplain in a prison if I recall.
