Philip Yonge

Bishop Yonge by [[Frederick Sandys Philip Yonge DD (1709–1783) was a British clergyman. He was appointed Bishop of Bristol in 1758, translated to become Bishop of Norwich in 1761 and died in that office in 1783.

Yonge was the son of Francis and Elizabeth Yonge. Francis Yonge was Commissary of the Ordnance during the War of the Spanish Succession, and later agent in London for South Carolina. Yonge was born in Lisbon in 1709. He was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was master of Jesus College, Cambridge (1752–58) and also a canon of Westminster Abbey (1750–1754) and a prebendary of St. Paul's Cathedral (1754–1761).

In 1761 he married Anne, daughter of Calverley Bewicke of Clapham. He died in his house in Upper Grosvenor Street, Mayfair on 23 April 1783 and was buried in the Grosvenor Chapel in Mayfair.
