This translation was prepared by Jane Ridley (died 1896) and the Right Reverend William Ridley (1836-1911). He served as Bishop of Caledonia from 1879 to 1905. The Ridleys' 1882 translation is also available online. David Griffiths identifies this translation as 198:2 in The Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer 1549-1999 (London: The British Library; New Castle, Delaware: Oak Knoll Press, 2002).
