Administrative history:
Lambeth Palace Library is the historic library of the Archbishops of Canterbury, founded in 1610. It is the principal library and record office for the history of the Church of England, holding, in addition to the Archbishops' archives, material acquired from other sources.

Contents:
The Manuscripts sequence at Lambeth Palace Library comprises a collection of material created by a diverse range of individuals and organisations, both within and outside the Church of England. The material has been accumulated by acquisitions made over several centuries, including some material which strictly forms part of the archive of the Archbishops of Canterbury. The contents, both single volumes and collections of material, cover not only ecclesiastical history but other subjects, ranging for instance through architectural, colonial, political and social history. Numbered from MS. 1, the series continues to accrue beyond MS. 4500. The manuscripts date from the 9th century to the present day, including some 600 medieval manuscripts.

Contents:
Papers of Charles Manners Sutton (1755-1828), Archbishop of Canterbury, formerly (1792-1805) Bishop of Norwich.
They are as follows:
Letter from William Gearing, minister [Rector] of Christ Church in or near Southwark, to William Lloyd, Bishop of Norwich, 30 July 1687, offering to send his manuscript collections concerning the diocese of Norwich and other historical writings, and complaining of insanitary conditions in Southwark (f.1).
Address from the Archbishop of Canterbury and the bishops of the Province of Canterbury to George III (king of England) on his accession, [1760]. Draft in the hand of Archbishop Thomas Secker (ff.3-4v).
Ireland: appointment of Primate, 1794, ff. 6-21:
Letter from Archbishop Secker to Charles Wyndham, 2nd Earl of Egremont, Secretary of State, from Lambeth, 13 April 1763, transmitting a copy of a congratulatory address to the King on the occasion of the peace (copy) (f.5).
Letter from George Pretyman, Bishop of Lincoln, and (1820) Winchester, from Downing Street, 16 October 1794, seeking his views on the Primacy of Ireland should an English bishop be appointed. The income is seven or eight thousand a year, but £14,000 is needed to take possession (f.6).
Letter from Thomas Manners Sutton, 1st Baron Manners (1807), from Lincoln's Inn, 30 October 1794, giving an account of a conversation with the Lord Chancellor about the Primacy of Ireland - 'an Irish Bishop has the means of providing for and enriching his family which do not occur in England, and many families have been made by ecclesiastical preferment' (f.8).
Letter from the same, 3 November 1794, reporting a further conversation with the Lord Chancellor on the same subject and a proposed interview with Pitt (f.10).

Contents:
Theological commonplace book of Nathan Prince, Fellow of Harvard College, Massachusetts (America). He notes on p.i, 'My method in this common place book (much the same as in others of mine) with respect to the notes on any passages of the antients has been to set down the judgment of criticks of all sorts whether Papists or Protestants, orthodox or haeretical writers, as I happened to light on them any where, and this too most commonly without mentioning their names, and also intermingling them with my own remarks. So that none can tell whose notes they are, or whether true and just ones or false and deceitfull. The distinguishing those from these being not my design here but meerly to fling my own notes and those of others all together in a heap for a future examination'.
