Rev James Patrick Haldane-Stevenson was born at Llandaff, Wales on 17 March 1910 . His mother was a great-grand-daughter of Robert Haldane, whose Airthrey Estate is now the University of Stirling campus. His father’s family was connected with the engineering firm Dick & Stevenson. Both his parents came from Airdrie. After university, he trained for the ministry and was ordained to a Lambeth curacy in 1935 . During the Second World War he served as a Territorial Chaplain in Flanders and Italy. He continued Army service after the War, as commandant of a chaplaincy Centre for conducting Christian leadership in Austria, but resigned in 1955 and emigrated to Australia. He was vicar of North Balwyn, Victoria, from 1959-1980 ; and was appointed Honorary Assistant of St Paul’s Manuka, in 1984.
