Ordained in 1825, he held successively the Incumbency of Low Harrowgate, the Vicarage of Kirkleatham, and the charge of Bolton, near Bradford. He died in 1882. He published Leisure Musings and Devotions, &c, 1835; Mount Grace Abbey, a poem, 1843, and with his brother, the Rev. T. Holme (q.v.), Hymns & Sacred Poetry, Christian Book Society, 1861. From this last work, "All things are ours, how abundant the treasure" (Praise in Sickness), in Snepp's Songs of Grace & Glory, 1872, is taken. "God my Father, hear me pray" (Lent), in the Anglican Hymn Book, 1868, is attributed to him, and dated 1861. It is, however, from his Leisure Musings, 1835, p. 117, in 4 stanzas of 6 lines, but it is not in the Hymns & Sacred Poetry. His hymn, "Lord Jesus, God of grace and love" (Holy Communion), is from the Hymns & Sacred Poetry, 1861. These works are worthy of the attention of compilers of children's hymnbooks. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology
