From Glos Cathedral and Glos Public Library on Tuesday 10th March 1988:

Doctor of Divinity (which University?).

Consecrated "Lord Bishop of Gloucester" on Sunday 28th October 1781, probably by Archb of Cantuar and definitely in Lambeth Chapel. The sermon preached at this service by East Apthorp, Rector of St Mary le Bow was published "by command of his grace the archbishop"; a copy is held at Gloucester Public Library.

He had some dispute with his Dean over chanting of services mid-week... [From a history of Gloucester cathedral]

He translated to St Asaph in 1789.

From a tablet in Warsop church, as quoted by Richard J King:

“Here near his most dear little son who was some time snatched away by untimely fate the very reverend Samuel Hallifax LLD and STP wished his paternal remains to be deposited. Born and instructed in the first rudiments of learning in this neighbourhood he afterwards held the position of Public Lecturer and Regius Professor of Civil Law in the University of Cambridge, Master of Faculties in Doctors Commons, Rector in this Church and Bishop first in the Cathedral Church of Gloucester and afterwards in that of St. Asaph: through all of which offices he distinguished himself by his ability, profound learning, and wonderful industry; by his unswerving allegiance to the English Church; by the power and sweetness of his discourses; by the touching grace and elegance of his writings; and moreover by what he ever held to be of paramount importance, the uprightness of his life.
“He was born at Mansfield Jan. 8. 1733; worn out by stone he died a premature death alas! March 4th 1790 aged fifty-seven years. His wife Catherine being left his survivor with an only son and six daughters has erected this monument as somewhat of a mournful solace to her grief.”
