"The Rev. Henry Sharpe, B.D., died on Sunday last at Trinity Vicarage, Hampstead, after a painful illness, at the age of 67. He studied for the ministry at St. Aidan's College, and was ordained by Bishop Davys of Peterborough, in 1856. Having received priest's orders, Mr. Sharpe went out to Canada as incumbent of Holy Trintiy, Wolfe's Island, Ontario where he worked from 1858 to 1864, afterwards returning for a short time ot his former parish in Peterborough. IN 1865 he accepted an offer of work under the London Diocesan Home Mission, whose committes act him to work in the neighbourhood of the Metropolitan Railway works near Finchley-road. Here he laboured among the Navvies employed on the construction of the line. When residences began to rise round the new station, Mr. Sharpe remained, and a temporary building was erected in Hampstead Fields, which answered the purpose till 1872. In that year Trinity Church, which his congregation and friends had build for him, was opened for service, and a district was assigned to it.Mr. Sharpe had thus been its vicar for 28 years and had kept together a large and devoted congregation. The Servies were of the simplest Evangelical type, and the black gown was worn in the pulpit. The church gave generous support to the great Evangelical societies, and Mr. Sharpe was an active member of the committees of several of them. He took a keen part in the active efforts of the Church Association. Two of his sons are clergymen, one being vicar of Newport, Isle of Wight, and the other being his father's near neighbor as vicar of Emmanuel Church, West-end, Hampstead."2
