Sandford, Daniel, Bishop of Edinburgh, was born at Delville, near Dublin, in 1766. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, where he proceeded to D.D. in 1802. He subsequently settled in Scotland, and became a popular preacher, and in 1806 was consecrated Bishop of Edinburgh. The Gentleman's Magazine says: "He became the happy means of commencing and completing the union of Scottish and English Episcopalians. .. His piety was pure and unaffected." He died 14th January 1830, aged 63, and was interred in the burying-ground adjoining St. John's Chapel, Edinburgh. His Remains, with a Memoir, edited by his son, were published a few months after his death.
