Latimer Neville, 6th Baron Braybrooke
Latimer Neville, 6th Baron Braybrooke (22 April 1827 – 12 January 1904), styled The Hon. Latimer Neville until 1902, was a British peer, clergyman and academic, for half a century Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge.
Neville was the fourth son of Richard Griffin, 3rd Baron Braybrooke. He was educated at Eton College and Magdalene College, Cambridge, matriculating in 1845 aged 18, gaining a Fellowship in 1848, and graduating M.A. in 1849. He was ordained deacon in 1850 and priest in 1851.
Neville's father Lord Braybrooke was the Visitor of Magdalene College; his uncle George Neville-Grenville was the Master. In 1846 Neville-Grenville was appointed Dean of Windsor and offered to resign the Mastership; Lord Braybrooke, as Visitor, refused the resignation, intending that Latimer Neville (then aged 19) should eventually succeed him as Master. With some diplomacy needed to manage the Fellowship, this transition was achieved in 1853, and Latimer Neville became Master at the age of 26.
He held the following church livings:
- Curate of Waltham St Lawrence, 1850–51
- Rector of Heydon with Little Chishill, 1851–1904
- Rural Dean of Saffron Walden, 1873–79
- Honorary Canon of St Albans Abbey, 1873–1904
He was described as "a good but dull man lacking intellectual powers".
