Chadwick, James, was born April 24, 1813, at Drogheda, Ireland, and educated at Ushaw College, Durham, where he was ordained in 1836, and successively became Professor and President. In 1866 he was consecrated H. C. Bishop of Newcastle, and died May 14, 1882. Two hymns which he contributed to the Holy Family Hymns, 1860, are in most later Roman Catholic hymnals:—
1. Hail, holy mission, hail. For a Mission.
2. Jesus, my God [Lord], behold at length the time. Repentance.
