Covering dates 14th - 21st centuries

Archival history On 21 July 1949 the Bishop of Chichester, acting in accordance with the Parochial Registers and Records Measure, 1929, established a Record Office for his Diocese with the agreement of the County Council of West Sussex. In February 1951, Dr. Bell arranged for the deposit of his episcopal archives in the Diocesan Record Office at Chichester on "permanent loan" under the care of the County Archivist.
An examination of certain sections of these records will disclose many gaps, especially for the earlier periods; whether the loss may be attributed to the sacking of the Cathedral during the Civil War, or to the neglect of generations of registrars, or to the wanton destruction of "old papers", we shall never know, but of the three possibilities the second is the least likely.
Creators Diocese of Chichester
Arrangement Miscellaneous papers (e.g. Ep/I/15), have been sorted into chronological order so far as is possible.
The previous sortings to which the documents have been subjected and the fact that they received numbers which have been quoted in print has caused difficulties. In brief, however, documents have only been transferred from one class to another in cases where it was unavoidable because of earlier mis-sorting. The original groupings made in the 1950s (Ep/I/1-57, II/1-37, III/1-13, IV/1-13, V/1-18, VI/1-60 and VII/1-7) have been retained although they sometimes include unrelated documents; the index should solve any problems arising from such errors in the original classification. New numbers have been added (Ep/I/58-88, II/38-43, III/14-17, IV/14, V/19-21, VII/8 and VIII) to provide references to "stray" documents and later accessions.
Related information There still remains at the Diocesan Registry some records (e.g. Bishops' Registers and Faculty Papers) which overlap in date some others described in this catalogue.

Administrative history:
AREAS OF JURISDICTION:
Ep/I. THE DIOCESE OF CHICHESTER was coterminous with the County of Sussex except for:--
(1). Four peculiar jurisdictions, i.e. that of the Dean of Chichester, the exempt deanery of Pagham and Tarring, that of the Dean of Battle, and the exempt deanery of South Malling. These were abolished 1 Jan. 1846 (Order in Council, 8 Aug. 1845) when the first two became part of the Archdeaconry of Chichester and the other two part of the Archdeaconry of Lewes.
(2). North and South Ambersham which were detached portions of Steep parish (co. Hants., dio. Winchester) transferred to Selham in Sussex in 1844 (7 & 8 Vict. c. 61) but not to the Diocese of Chichester until 1916 (London Gazette, 18 Aug. 1916).
(3). Tunbridge Wells (King Charles the Martyr) which was created a consolidated chapelry in the Diocese of Canterbury in 1889 partly out of the parish of Broadwater Down and later transferred to the Diocese of Rochester.
The area of the ARCHDEACONRY OF CHICHESTER has remained unchanged except for (1) and (2) above and by an Order in Council (15 Aug. 1929) when the parishes of Colgate St. Saviour, Crawley with West Crawley, and Ifield were transferred from the Archdeaconry of Lewes to that of Chichester, and Bramber with Botolphs was transferred from Chichester to Lewes. In 1943, Lower Beeding was transferred from Chichester to Lewes.
Until the mid-19th century the four Rural Deaneries in the Archdeaconry of Chichester were those of Arundel, Boxgrove, Midhurst and Storrington; there are now nine.
Ep/II. The area of the ARCHDEACONRY of LEWES was the rest of the county until the creation of the Archdeaconry of Hastings in 1912. The changes in the Archdeaconry are referred to under the Diocese and Archdeaconry of Chichester (Ep/I above). The four Rural Deaneries until the mid-19th century were those of Dallington, Hastings, Lewes and Pevensey; there are now nine.
Ep/III. THE DEAN OF CHICHESTER'S PECULIAR comprised the Chichester parishes of St. Andrew, St. Bartholomew, St. Martin, St. Olave, St. Pancras, St. Peter the Great [Subdeanery], St. Peter the Less [incorrectly known as St. Peter-juxta-Guildhall], and New Fishbourne, Rumboldswyke and the precinct of the Close. The peculiar was not subject to visitation by the Archdeacon; jurisdiction was vested in the Bishop during a vacancy. The peculiar jurisdiction was abolished 1 Jan. 1846 (see Ep/I above).
Ep/IV. THE EXEMPT DEANERY OF PAGHAM AND TARRING was in the hands of the Archbishop of Canterbury and comprised the following parishes and chapelries: South Bersted, Chichester All Saints, Durrington, Heene, East Lavant, Pagham, Patching, Slindon, Tangmere, West Tarring and Plaistow in Kirdford. Other areas of jurisdiction were:--
Chichester: The Headacre, in parish of St. Pancras [in 1705 described as "the Fourteen houses in the parish of St. Pancrass which are within the peculiar Jurisdiccon of the Archbishop of Canterbury", Ep/IV/4/12. Site unknown.].
Chichester: The Vintry ["infra warda vocat' le ventr' Cicest' jurisdictionis peculiaris", Ep/IV/4/13. Possibly in Upper St. Martin's Lane or Crooked S Lane. (1590].
Horsham: The Bishoprick [also frequently called Bishopsbridge].
Bognor St. John: site of proposed chapel (in parish of South Bersted) consecrated 1822, and first curate appointed 1839.
This peculiar was never inhibited and was abolished 1 Jan. 1846 (see Ep/I above).
Ep/V. THE EXEMPT DEANERY OF SOUTH MALLING, also in the hands of the Archbishop of Canterbury, comprised Buxted, Edburton, Framfield, Glynde, Hadlow Down, Isfield, Lewes St. Thomas-at-Cliffe, Lindfield, Mayfield, Ringmer, South Malling, Stanmer, Uckfield and Wadhurst, with chapelries at [East] Chiltington, Hartfield, Withyham and Wivelsfield. A very small part of East Grinstead was also included in this jurisdiction which was never inhibited and was abolished 1 Jan. 1846 (see Ep/I above).
Ep/VII. THE ARCHDEACONRY OF HASTINGS was created by Order in Council, 24 June 1912, and was to 'comprise and consist of the Rural Deaneries of Pevensey I, Pevensey II, Hastings I, Hastings II and Dallington and the parishes of Frant, Tidebrook and Wadhurst'. The area now comprises seven rural deaneries.
Ep/VIII. THE DEAN OF BATTLE'S PECULIAR was the lowey, or liberty, of Battle Abbey. Although the incumbent of Battle is still styled the Dean of Battle, the peculiar jurisdiction was abolished 1 Jan. 1846 when the deanery became part of the Archdeaconry of Lewes; since 1912 it has been in the Archdeaconry of Hastings. The parish register transcripts are Ep/II/16/10 (Battle) and II/16/138 (Netherfield).

Many volumes have been foliated or paginated more than once, but it is advisable always to follow the pencil foliation when using a book in the collection; it has been a rule in compiling this Catalogue to use what is believed to be the most recent foliation. A higher folio or page number preceding a lower (e.g. ff.10-3, pp. 312-260) indicates that the volume has been used from both ends.
It should be emphasized that the printed catalogue mark under which any records are described is the one which should be quoted; the earlier (and often confusing) catalogue marks, if they are found on documents, should be ignored.



THE ARCHDEACONRY OF LEWES  Ep/II  [n.d.]

REGISTER OF NON-RESIDENT CLERGY  Ep/II/28  1804-1853

Contents:
These registers contain lists of all incumbents, and, if non-resident, the reasons for their exemption, their present residence and other benefices held, and the value of the living.
Attached to many of the registers is correspondence between the Privy Council and the Bishop of Chichester, and the Bishop's Registry and incumbents, relating to the returns. The registers were prepared under the Act 43 Geo. III c.84 and subsequent legislation, all to enforce the residence of clergy in their benefices unless exempt or excused by episcopal licence. Clause 53 of the Act 57 Geo. III c.99 provided for an annual return to be made to the Privy Council giving the information contained in these volumes, which were compiled from the original returns. These Acts were repealed by the Pluralities Act of 1838 (1 & 2 Vict. c.106) which was particularly directed against the holding of benefices in plurality, but the form of the returns (see Ep/I/42a) and these registers was unchanged.

London and Welsh original Court documents  Ep/II/29/1  early 17th century

545 ff

Contents:
This volume, instead of containing copies of documents which were considered important precedents, consists of original documents bound into a volume with occasional headings about their contents. The practice was not unusual amongst proctors of the ecclesiastical courts during the early 17th century and other volumes are preserved amongst the Canterbury diocesan records and at Liverpool University Library. Copies of all those documents somewhat loosely known as miscellaneous court proceedings were made by the registrar for both the proctors in a cause and so an elderly proctor would have a large selection of documents from which to choose. This volume was apparently compiled by a Welsh proctor from St. Asaph diocese who at the beginning of the century moved first to Rochester and then to London where he became a member of Doctors' Commons. How it found its way to Lewes is not known though the parchment cover bears the names of James Curtis and John Richardson as well as the title: "Liber Libellorum et aliorum Actuum et instrumentorum in diversis casibus et causis." The compiler has shown a considerable sense of arrangement and the volume falls naturally into sections of allegations, articles, libels, interrogatories and sentences. There is a list of contents at the beginning.

INDUCTION MANDATES  Ep/II/30  1752-1924

Contents:
After the institution of a new incumbent, possession of the temporarlities of the benefice was vested in him by induction. (Prebendaries and Cathedral dignitaries were installed) The bishop or his commissary issued a mandate to induct to the archdeacon, who usually commissioned a neighbouring incumbent to act for him, or made a general mandate to all clergy within the archdeaconry.

Episcopal mandates for induction, and some by commission  Ep/II/30/1  1787-1924

935 Docs.

Contents:
Including some from the Bishop of Lewes, 1909-1924. These documents usually give the name of the previous incumbent and the patron, and the cause of vacancy; they are occasionally endorsed with the date of the archdeacon's mandate and a certificate of induction.

VISITATION PAPERS  Ep/II/31  1755-1920

Contents:
The bishop normally held a visitation of his diocese triennially, although the real task of personal inspection of each church devolved on the archdeacon, who usually visited his archdeaconry once a year. During visitations all inferior jurisdictions were inhibited, although for convenience this inhibition was often relaxed. Consequently the papers here include the Dean of Chichester's Peculiar (and, in the case of metropolitical visitations, the Archbishop's Peculiars), and are mostly concerned with citations to appear, as follows (all except the mandates from the Archdeacon of Chichester relate to episcopal or metropolitical visitations only). Metropolitical visitations are indicated.

Lists of clergy, parishes and visitation preachers (1755, 1798, 1821, 1856); articles of enquiry not returned (1871); church repairs recommended by churchwardens; an unused copy of the ministers' articles (1811).  Ep/II/31/1  1755-1871
