Impact On Brisbane Society

According to Diane Langmore, Montagu Stone-Wigg “confessed himself less at home among the ‘swells’ of Brisbane than among the artisans of Hammersmith,” his previous appointment as curate at Holy Innocents, London. He assisted to build the Tractarian ideal of Bishop William Webber until Stone-Wigg’s appointment in New Guinea.
