John Hampden Gurney (1802-1862), a priest of The Church of England, served as the Rector of St. Mary’s Church, Bryanstone, St. Marylebone, London, from 1847 to 1857.  Gurney, who came from privilege, cared deeply about the poor and supported causes to help them.  He also prepared two hymnals, in 1838 and 1851.
