When I was studying history, the penny dropped that Prohibition ended in He was illegally trading whisky. But he kept so much to himself.
Aged 23, with a clipped English accent, and dark, debonair good looks, he modelled himself on the Hollywood star Cary Grant. He could also afford to rent an apartment on the upmarket Upper East Side, where he held parties for high society. Rather than admitting to be a mere employee, Welby began hinting that his family owned one of the distilleries supplying the liquor. The society columns of the New York Times from this period are filled with his exploits. Hailing from Chester, New Jersey, she was of German descent just like her new husband.
The marriage appears to have been very short lived. Before the year was out, she had left him. After returning first to Boston, she used her maiden name and a newly-minted American passport to sail to Britain, identifying herself as a dance teacher. There is no trace of the couple getting divorced. After the outbreak of war in , Welby remained in New York, organising parties.
But when America entered the conflict, he was ordered to return home and enlist. In December , he held a farewell party to mark his departure. He became a First Lieutenant. He also applied to Conservative Central Office, asking to be considered as a candidate for Parliament. His application forms to the party are sealed, but it is understood that he gave false details about his background, shaved several years off his age and overstated his position with the American firms that had employed him before the war.
Nevertheless, his easy manner and direct-speaking style apparently impressed the Conservative hierarchy. In , he was selected to fight for Coventry East against an up-and-coming politician, Richard Crossman, who was later to become a Labour Cabinet minister. The local Conservative party activists seem to have taken against their candidate, who continued to be based in London. I should say that he is not particularly well suited to this type of Division. The Coventry Telegraph reported that he was heckled at the hustings. It was reported that she had delayed an operation in order to join him.
Days before the poll, disaster struck. Crossman sued and Welby was forced to publish a grovelling apology on the eve of the election. Crossman won a massive majority, and Welby headed back across the Atlantic. Then in Walter Winchell, the king of American gossip columnists, revealed that the Englishman was dating the daughter of Joseph Kennedy, former US ambassador to Britain.

Patricia was also the sister of John F Kennedy. Welby returned to Britain. During the election campaign he had met and befriended Adam Butler, the son of Rab, who would go on to be an MP, a minister and aide to Margaret Thatcher and a knight. They became so close that Welby later added a clause to his will, making Adam Butler the legal guardian of his son. Being a niece of Rab Butler had helped her get the job. She went on to work for Churchill as he led a government after the war, helping to keep his stroke and failing health hidden from the wider world.
They had apparently eloped because of disapproval from her parents. Later that month, however, the marriage was announced in The Times. A reception was held at 11 Downing Street, arranged by Rab Butler. Something must have happened. By , the Welbys were living in Onslow Square, Chelsea. Gavin had invested much of the money he had made in America and was now a Name on the Lloyds insurance market. His son was born on January 6 that year.
This was the same church to which he would return for comfort after the death of his first child in a car accident in Paris, and where he first felt called to the ministry. The marriage between his parents did not last.

Jane Portal went on to marry Charles Williams, the former Essex county cricketer and oil executive, in When he was elevated to the House of Lords as a life peer in , she became Lady Williams of Elvel. After the marriage ended, Gavin Welby went back to dividing his time between Britain and America. He stood for Parliament again in , as a last-minute replacement candidate in Goole, Yorkshire. His next notable romantic involvement was in the early Sixties, with the year-old actress Vanessa Redgrave, a rising star of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Welby was now 50, but claimed to be younger. Her father, Sir Michael Redgrave, did not approve. The issues were not political, but spiritual, one archbishop said, and thus not amenable to compromise. The conservatives also had an opportunity to size up Archbishop Welby. All of those questioned after the meetings expressed a personal regard for the man, but were sceptical that his office could provide a solution to the divisions within the Church if it sought to take a neutral stance.
First printed in the Church Times. The opening paragraphs of the original version, reprinted by the London Evening Post , and the revised BBC version are identical. They begin:. The Archbishop of Canterbury has made a detour of more than 8, miles to visit Kenya — on his way to Iceland.
The story offers background on the trip to Iceland and the al-Shabaab terror attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. And then more details about the trip are added:. Archbishop Welby delivered sermons at and before having lunch with the Archbishop of Kenya and five Kenyan bishops.
The original conference — held in Jerusalem in June — was organised in response to the appointment of actively gay men and women as bishops, especially in the US. Through the Gafcon movement, conservative Anglican provinces — mostly in parts of Africa but some in South and North America, Asia and the Middle East — have begun to function outside the authority of the Archbishop of Canterbury. Correction 21 Oct This story has been amended to clarify that Gafcon remains within the Anglican Communion. The problem here is the correction still is incorrect. As the correction notes the Gafcon movement remains within the Anglican Communion.see

The churches who comprise the Gafcon movement represent the majority of all Anglicans. The correction stating they are outside the authority of the Archbishop of Canterbury misunderstands the role of the office of the archbishop. He is not a pope nor are Anglicans outside the Church of England under his authority — and within the Church of England his authority is over the Province of Canterbury. The Archbishop of York holds authority in the Province of York.
In short, the Archbishop of Canterbury has no more authority over Anglicans outside England than I, or you, do. I should also note the facts presented in the story are false. Yes, he did have lunch with these six people, but he also had lunch with the British High Commissioner, six other archbishops and a dozen or so Anglican worthies. And, the statement that the archbishop flew to Nairobi to offer support to the Kenyan people in the wake of the Westgate Mall bombing is false. It is not false in the sense that this is what the Lambeth Palace Press Office reported , but what Lambeth Palace said was untrue.
If the BBC had bothered to contact the Gafcon conference organizers they would have learned the archbishop asked if he could meet the primates before the Westgate bombing took place. I might also add that in his sermons to the congregation of All Saints Cathedral the archbishop did not talk about al-Shabaab or terror. He then focused on the Anglican Communion and the Gafcon conference.
Nor did he visit the Mall or meet with ordinary Kenyans outside the cathedral. By relying upon a single source and not verifying the information independently, the BBC propounded a false narrative. By being one sided and repeating information uncritically, the BBC let down the side. First printed in Get Religion. This grouping of traditionalist Anglicans grew out of disaffection with the direction the Anglican church was taking in the USA and UK, particularly in relation to the issue of homosexuality.
The second conference is taking place next week in Nairobi, and William Crawley will be hearing about its current agenda from its chairman, Archbishop Eliud Wabukala. The new Chief Rabbi has come under fire from ultra orthodox Jews for his decision to attend the educational Limmud conference in December. Does this decision mark a change in relationships between the Chief Rabbinate and ultra-orthodoxy?
A new survey on loneliness suggests that religious people may be more likely to be lonely than those without a faith. And — to baptise, give thanks or simply to party?

Toronto: The Anglican Communion must not lose its vocation as a bridge-building church, the Archbishop of Canterbury said last week in an address delivered at a conference marking the 50 th anniversary of the Toronto pan-Anglican Congress. The Congress sought to reshape the church to address a rapidly changing world. Who is the God we serve? Who are we? What is the Church for? In many places it is all of these. Greeting the Bishop of Egypt, the Most Rev. The suffragan Bishop of Toronto, the Rt.
The Most Rev. Justin Welby will attend part of the two-day gathering of archbishops at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi, held immediately before the October Gafcon Conference. It has since grown into a global reform movement within the Anglican Communion that seeks to strengthen the church by affirming the fundamentals of the Christian faith. Leaders of the movement have also called for the reform of the current structures of the communion, expressing disappointment with what they believe to be the failures of the London-based institutions.
