After his ordination in 1843 Henry Lascelles Jenner worked in Cornwall, where his son Henry Jenner, chief originator of the Cornish language revival, was born. In 1854 he became Rector of Preston-next-Wingham, a post he was to hold for the remaining 44 years of his life.
In 1865 he was consecrated as the first Bishop of Dunedin, New Zealand, and sufficient funds were raised to commission the beautiful 'Canterbury Crozier' for his use. (It is now at Canterbury Cathedral, except when used by the Bishop of Dover.) He travelled to Dunedin, but after five years of bickering the Diocesan Synod refused his claim, apparently because he was Anglo Catholic, and Bishop Samuel Tarrant Neville was installed instead.
