Charles John Vaughan

Headmaster of Harrow School 1845 – 59. Born Leicester, son of a vicar. Educated Rugby and Cambridge, became a vicar and was then elected headmaster of Harrow. Resigned that post and went on to be: bishop of Rochester (but he resigned immediately), vicar of Doncaster, Master of the Temple (London), Dean of Llandaff, president of University College, Cardiff. Died in the Llandaff deanery.

Wikipedia relates the allegation, only discovered in the 1970s, that Vaughan had a long-lasting homosexual relationship with one of the Harrow pupils, and that the father of another pupil, hearing of this, insisted that Vaughan resign from Harrow, and subsequently Rochester, or face the consequences of public exposure.
