Hubert Godfrey Houseman (1874-c.1955), Queens College 1892-95, was ordained deacon 1897 and priest 1898. He was Curate of Newfoundland Cathedral, 1900-03 and London Diocesan Home Missionary at St. Peters, Acton Green, 1906-13. He was Vicar of St. Peters, Staines, 1913-20, and Vicar of Selling, Kent, 1936- . His tour was presumably between the end of his curacy and his institution to Staines in 1913. His journal records his voyage from London on 14 FEB 1913 to Tasmania, and thence to New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii and Canada, in the New Zealand Shipping Co. steamer Rotorua, a daily record of life on board, and descriptions of his travels in the places which he visited. Arriving at Vancouver, Houseman travelled overland to Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec, from where he sailed for England, reaching London on 25 OCT 1913.
