(From Wikipedia entry)
John Gott (25 December 1830–21 July 1906) was the third Bishop of Truro from 1891 until his death in 1906.

Gott was born in Leeds on Christmas Day 1830, the third son of William Gott. He was educated at Winchester and Brasenose College, Oxford. He then embarked on an ecclesiastical career with a curacy at Great Yarmouth, after which he held incumbencies at Bramley, Leeds, 1871–76, and at Leeds Parish Church, where he also founded the Leeds Clergy School. His last post, before his ordination to the episcopate, was as Dean of Worcester from 1886.
