Rev. John Arthur Nash was born in Walsall between January and March 1873. Fr. Nash was vicar at St. Andrews from 1908 until he left for Devon in 1926. He was married to Catherine and the couple had no children. In 1911 they lived at 7 Boulton Street.
Fr. Nash was Scoutmaster from sometime around 1915 (his name is on the 1915 registration) until he left in 1926. When he left he was presented with a picture of the Troop, which can be seen (sort of!) here.
Fr. Nash died on 21th January 1941 in Gorran Cornwall.
