Archbishop of Canterbury for the Church of England from 1747 to 1757. Herring became a close friend of Philip Yorke, the Solicitor General, who would later, as Lord Hardwicke, serve for many years as Lord Chancellor, and as such, was able to advance quickly. In 1728 he became Doctor of Divinity and a chaplain to George II, and in 1737 he was appointed Bishop of Bangor. In 1743 he became Archbishop of York, and in 1747, he was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury.
