Information on Irvingites aka Catholic Apostolic Church
« on: Saturday 17 July 21 03:30 BST (UK) »
I  have just come across a child baptised in 1836 in St Leonards, Shoreditch with the denomination noted as Irvingite, with the father giving his occupation as a whitesmith. By 1851 Census, father was listed as a priest.
From googling, I have found that this was named after Edward Irving  1792-1834 a deposed presbyterian minister.
Where can I get more information on this branch of the (catholic?) church?

There is quite a bit of information available online. I would think you have searched that already though, so is it something specific you are after?

From New South Wales Australia  ;D  here's a link to an article available for download

Peter Slipper, Bishop of Australia, ICAB, was once the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the lower house of the Australian Federal Parliament.

Thank you for those links - I did look at several of them.
I was trying to get to grips with the transition from whitesmith to priest; married as well.
I can see a trip to the library next week.

I canít see a problem with white smith/priest and presumably married priests were allowed.

 :) agree with heywood  :D

Even now, Priests often have had a secular career and have married and commenced their  family before training and study for the priesthood.

I think you might be confusing the Catholic Apostolic Church with the Roman Catholic Church? Entirely different denominations.
If you read the bit under Structure and ministries it explains about 'priests'-

Thank you - that clarifies the matter.
Another unusual note for my tree. I am collecting stories around some of these items - well it all adds some colour to my extended family!

Catholic in a religious context means universal. Several Christian denominations are Catholic/catholic. Hence Roman Catholic to differentiate from others which have Catholic in their name or consider their church to be catholic.
