Arthur William Jephson (1853 - 21 August 1935) was a Church of England clergyman.
He was ordained a deacon in 1876 and was appointed curate of Croydon, becoming a priest in the following year. In 1880 he was appointed vicar of St Johns, Waterloo Road Lambeth and in 1893 of St John's Walworth.
A man of Radical political views working in largely working class districts, he quickly became involved in local administration.
He was a member of the London School Board representing Lambeth West from 1885-1891 and Lambeth East from 1894-1904, when the board was abolished. The London County Council took over the activities of the school board, and Jephson was elected as a Progressive Party councillor representing Newington (Walworth). He resigned from the council on 1 May 1906.
In 1908 he left London on being appointed rector of Ecton in Northamptonshire. He held the post until his death, following a heart attack, aged 82.
Wrote a number of books including 'My Work in London' and [Municipal Work from a Christian standpoint'.
