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 DEAN OF CHICHESTER'S PECULIAR  Ep/III  [n.d.]

GENERAL SUBSCRIPTION BOOK AND PAPERS  Ep/III/1  1739-1840


Related information: Other subscriptions for the deanery are in Ep/1/3

Contents:
Subscriptions and declarations before the ordinary or commissary were required by statute and ecclesiastical law of all candidates for ordination, all clergy before admission to any benefice or ecclesiastical office and of schoolmasters, surgeons, apothecaries and midwives before receiving episcopal licence (see Act 3 Hen. VIII. c. 11). In most cases the oaths and declarations were written out in full only once in each book, but those listed as (The three articles of the 36th Canon (1603), acknowledging the sovereign's position as 'supreme governor' of the Church of England, the Book of Common Prayer and the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion.), (Subscription to the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion, required by the Act 13 Eliz. I c. 12 (1570).) and (The declaration of conformity to the liturgy, required by the Act 13 & 14 Chas. II c. 4 (1662).) below were usually copied by each person. In the later volumes there are occasional notes of ordinations and often, in the case of an incumbent, the names of his predecessor and patron, and the cause of vacancy. Subscriptions taken on commission (i.e. when the signatory could not attend at Chichester) were either pasted into these books later, or kept separately
Unless otherwise stated these volumes include only the archdeaconries of Chichester and Lewes
"Curates" here refers to stipendiary curates only, and "apothecaries" includes all branches of the medical profession. Oaths and declarations were made as follows

ff. 1v.-2(The oath of canonical obedience, prescribed by ecclesiastical law (see Francis Clerke, Praxis, tit. 91, which is in Ep.I/51/6, p. 62)), (The oath of allegiance, 1688 (1 Will. & Mary c. 8); reaffirmed 1714 (1 Geo. I stat. 2 c. 13)) (The oath of supremacy, 1688 (1 Will. & Mary c. 8); reaffirmed 1714 (1 Geo. I stat. 2 c. 13)) (The oath against simony, required by Canon 40) (The oath of residence, prescribed by ecclesiastical law (see Francis Clerke, Praxis, tit. 91, which is in Ep.I/51/6, p. 62)); f.3, subscription of Robert Sandham(The three articles of the 36th Canon (1603), acknowledging the sovereign's position as 'supreme governor' of the Church of England, the Book of Common Prayer and the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion), (Subscription to the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion, required by the Act 13 Eliz. I c. 12 (1570)), (The declaration of conformity to the liturgy, required by the Act 13 & 14 Chas. II c. 4 (1662))  Ep/III/1/1  Nov. 1739

6 ff.

Loose subscription papers(The three articles of the 36th Canon (1603), acknowledging the sovereign's position as 'supreme governor' of the Church of England, the Book of Common Prayer and the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion), (Subscription to the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion, required by the Act 13 Eliz. I c. 12 (1570)) (The declaration of conformity to the liturgy, required by the Act 13 & 14 Chas. II c. 4 (1662)) (The oath of allegiance, 1688 (1 Will. & Mary c. 8); reaffirmed 1714 (1 Geo. I stat. 2 c. 13)) (The oath of supremacy, 1688 (1 Will. & Mary c. 8); reaffirmed 1714 (1 Geo. I stat. 2 c. 13)), mostly giving the names of the previous incumbent, and patron of the living, and the cause of vacancy.  Ep/III/1/2  1746-1840

GRANT OF NEXT PRESENTATION  Ep/III/2A  1578

Contents:
Grant of next presentation to the rectory of St. Pancras by Agnes Carpenter to John Rhodes, 28 Feb. 1577/8.
Patrons could grant to another person or corporate body the right to present at the next vacancy, or specified number of vacancies, or at all vacancies occurring in a term of years. Written evidence of this grant had to be produced before the bishop would admit and institute the clerk; grants were therefore often attached to the presentations themselves, as in Ep/I/6

MARRIAGE LICENCE BONDS AND AFFIDAVITS  Ep/III/3  1666-1908

3,072 Docs.

Contents:
Bonds from 1590 to 1665 are in STD V; bonds and affidavits are here counted as two documents until 1770 and onwards, when they were folded together and are therefore counted as one. There are no copies of baptismal entries or marriage licences attached to any of the documents. Marriages for 1582/3 to 1730 have been calendared in Sussex Record Society, vol. 12.
From 1605-1753 the documents represent only the bonds on marriage licences. In 1753 Lord Hardwicke's Act, 26 Geo. II c.33, provided that all marriages, except those of Jews and Quakers, should be performed in the parish church after the publication of banns or by licences, and consequently from March 1754 onwards affidavits were required to prove residence in the parish for four weeks by at least one of the contracting parties, to declare that there was no known impediment to the marriage and to show the consent of the parents or guardians of minors. The Marriage Act of 1822, 3 Geo. IV c. 75, which was effective from 1 September 1822 to 31 October 1823, required certified copies of the baptismal entries of both parties to be attached to the bond and affidavit, and in the Chichester archdeaconry copies of the marriage licence itself are also attached. Between 1 April and 31 October 1823 there are no copies of baptismal entries or licences and it was not until 1 November of that year that the new Marriage Act, 4 Geo. IV c.76, came into effect, requiring only an affidavit to be sworn before the licence could be issued, and abolishing bonds, thus superseding the provisions of Canon 101. The bonds and affidavits give the names, occupation, status and often the precise ages of the contracting parties, their parish of residence at time of marriage and intended place of marriage, and occasionally, in the case of a minor, a letter of parental consent is annexed.
Bonds and affidavits relating to the same parties are here counted as two documents up to and including 1780; from 1781 they were folded together and are therefore counted as one. Bonds contracted with the Archbishop of Canterbury sede vacante are included here.

CHURCHWARDENS' PRESENTMENTS  Ep/III/7  1621-1828

265 Docs.

Arrangement: The documents have been bundled according to parishes.


Contents:
As the Peculiar was not subject to archidiaconal visitation most of these presentments are for episcopal visitations.
Churchwardens and "sidemen" were required (By Canons 109-119 and Canon 26) to present offenders against ecclesiastical law at least once a year (usually twice, at Easter and Michaelmas) and at visitation; they could also make "voluntary presentments" at any time. Presentments were written out by the churchwardens on single sheets of paper or were in the form of answers to a set of articles of visitation and enquiry sent by the archdeacon, bishop or archbishop before visitation. In the 18th century the answers were written in the margin of printed books of articles. The articles were prefaced by the churchwardens' and sidemen's oath: "You will swear, that you will diligently enquire, and true Presentment make, of all Defaults and Offences committed in your Parish, against the Ecclesiastical Law of this Realm, to the best of your Skill and Knowledge". By the 19th century they were written on printed forms.
Although most of the single folio presentments are merely certificates that there was "nothing presentable" in the parish, the answers to the articles give much valuable information about the clergy and church officers, services, church fabric, behaviour of the parishioners, and the number of schools, hospitals, schoolmasters, doctors and midwives. By the 19th century the more detailed returns are concerned primarily with the conduct of the clergy, with the services and the fabric and finances of the church. Dating is often uncertain; in the 17th century sometimes only the date of the articles was given, which could be several years before the presentment, as the same set might be used throughout one episcopate. Single presentments were dated for either the year about which, or the year in which, the churchwardens were writing.
From 1850 the former Peculiar jurisdictions are included.
The earliest printed articles in the series are dated 1726, and some 14 sets have survived for the next half century (1726, 1729, 1733, 1737, 1742, 1745, 1755, 1758, 1762, 1765, 1769, 1772, 1775 and 1779).
These are for the Archdeaconry of Chichester, but all stem from epsicopal visitations. Archdeacons' visitations are represented in this period by much briefer manuscript presentments, which continue up to 1800. After this there are no regular files of manuscript presentments, and the few single documents that survive arise from specific parochial incidents.
The printed series for episcopal visitations of the Archdeaconry resumes in 1821 and continues until 1903, with the visitations usually being conducted at three yearly intervals. In 1825 begins the custom of sending an additional set of articles addressed to the minister.
Each type of article is, however, normally filed separately, and so will be found under the two references Ep/I/22 and Ep/I/22A - with the exception of the years 1838 and 1847 where both types of article have been bound up together and filed with the churchwardens' series.
After 1868, episcopal visitation articles are henceforth addressed solely to ministers.
A series of archdeacons' visitation articles commences in 1857, addressed to churchwardens only. In the latter years of the century these are normally issued annually but omitted in the years of the episcopal visitations.
The dates of the different types of nineteenth century articles are as follows:-
Episcopal articles to churchwardens: 1821 (Ep/I/22/1)
Episcopal articles to churchwardens and ministers: 1825
1828, 1838, 1847, 1850, 1853, 1856, 1859, 1862, 1865, 1868
(Ep/I/22/1, 2; Ep/I/22A/2)
Episcopal articles to ministers only: 1875, 1878, 1881, 1884, 1887, 1890, 1893, 1898, 1903 (Ep/I/22A/1, 2)
Archdeacons articles to churchwardens only: 1857, 1858, 1873, 1888, 1889, 1891, 1892, 1894-1897, 1899-1902, 1904-1908, 1910-1912, 1917 (Ep/I/22/1, 2).

PARISH REGISTER TRANSCRIPTS  Ep/III/8  1591-1912

Archival history:
By a Canterbury provincial constitution (25 Oct. 1596; royal approval 1598), churchwardens were directed to send to the diocesan registry every year within a month of Easter (from 1603, within a month of Lady Day) a transcript of the parish register entries for the preceding year. Rose's Act (52 Geo. III c.146; in force 1 Jan. 1813) transferred the obligation to the incumbent, who was to return the transcripts, written on parchment, within two months of the end of each year. By the late 19th century many incumbents had stopped this practice, and the registry did not continue to demand the transcripts. For a few parishes transcripts were made and returned until the early 20th century, the last of all being Broadwater, where the series ends in 1936.
Even in earlier years transcripts were not always made and returned as directed

FACULTY PAPERS  Ep/III/13  1805-1847

Arrangement: Arranged under parishes.



Related information: For details of these faculties see Ep/I/88/3

Contents:
A faculty had to be obtained from the Chancellor of the Diocese before the fabric of the church (including in this context the churchyard and the parsonage house) could be altered in any way, except in the course of necessary repairs. Such alterations included the demolition and removal of, and substitutions for and additions to, the fabric of the church (most commonly its windows, galleries, screens, pews, vaults and memorials), the removal of bodies from one piece of consecrated ground to another and the sale of church land for road widening. Confirmatory faculties were sometimes issued in respect of work completed without previous authority, but many alterations must have been made without any kind of licence being granted. In some cases the application was successfully opposed, or occasionally it was not pursued beyond the initial petition. Faculties were not required for the Cathedral, except for the removal of bodies. These papers include the originals or copies of petitions for faculties, citations to lead faculties (published in the church porch and inviting objections), estimates, costs, drawings and plans of proposed alterations, public appeals and subscription lists, notices and agendas of meetings, papers relating to appeals against the Chancellor's decisions, draft and original faculties and licences, and related correspondence and memoranda. The consecration papers consist mostly of conveyances and plans of sites for additional burial grounds or new chapels.

MARRIAGE LICENCE BONDS AND AFFIDAVITS  Ep/IV/1  1692-1907

1,534 Docs.

Supplementary information: Marriages from 1579/80 to 1730 have been calendared in Sussex Record Society, vol. 12

Contents:
There are no copies of baptismal entries or marriage licences attached to any of the documents.
From 1605-1753 the documents represent only the bonds on marriage licences. In 1753 Lord Hardwicke's Act, 26 Geo. II c.33, provided that all marriages, except those of Jews and Quakers, should be performed in the parish church after the publication of banns or by licences, and consequently from March 1754 onwards affidavits were required to prove residence in the parish for four weeks by at least one of the contracting parties, to declare that there was no known impediment to the marriage and to show the consent of the parents or guardians of minors. The Marriage Act of 1822, 3 Geo. IV c. 75, which was effective from 1 September 1822 to 31 October 1823, required certified copies of the baptismal entries of both parties to be attached to the bond and affidavit, and in the Chichester archdeaconry copies of the marriage licence itself are also attached. Between 1 April and 31 October 1823 there are no copies of baptismal entries or licences and it was not until 1 November of that year that the new Marriage Act, 4 Geo. IV c.76, came into effect, requiring only an affidavit to be sworn before the licence could be issued, and abolishing bonds, thus superseding the provisions of Canon 101. The bonds and affidavits give the names, occupation, status and often the precise ages of the contracting parties, their parish of residence at time of marriage and intended place of marriage, and occasionally, in the case of a minor, a letter of parental consent is annexed.
Bonds and affidavits relating to the same parties are here counted as two documents up to and including 1780; from 1781 they were folded together and are therefore counted as one. Bonds contracted with the Archbishop of Canterbury sede vacante are included here.

CHURCHWARDENS' PRESENTMENTS  Ep/IV/6  1602-1811

86 Docs.


Related information: Presentments and ministers' articles of enquiry for some of these parishes for 1850, 1853 and 1868 are in Ep/I/22/1 and I/22A/2.

Contents:
Churchwardens and "sidemen" were required (By Canons 109-119 and Canon 26) to present offenders against ecclesiastical law at least once a year (usually twice, at Easter and Michaelmas) and at visitation; they could also make "voluntary presentments" at any time. Presentments were written out by the churchwardens on single sheets of paper or were in the form of answers to a set of articles of visitation and enquiry sent by the archdeacon, bishop or archbishop before visitation. In the 18th century the answers were written in the margin of printed books of articles. The articles were prefaced by the churchwardens' and sidemen's oath: "You will swear, that you will diligently enquire, and true Presentment make, of all Defaults and Offences committed in your Parish, against the Ecclesiastical Law of this Realm, to the best of your Skill and Knowledge". By the 19th century they were written on printed forms.
Although most of the single folio presentments are merely certificates that there was "nothing presentable" in the parish, the answers to the articles give much valuable information about the clergy and church officers, services, church fabric, behaviour of the parishioners, and the number of schools, hospitals, schoolmasters, doctors and midwives. By the 19th century the more detailed returns are concerned primarily with the conduct of the clergy, with the services and the fabric and finances of the church. Dating is often uncertain; in the 17th century sometimes only the date of the articles was given, which could be several years before the presentment, as the same set might be used throughout one episcopate. Single presentments were dated for either the year about which, or the year in which, the churchwardens were writing.
From 1850 the former Peculiar jurisdictions are included.
The earliest printed articles in the series are dated 1726, and some 14 sets have survived for the next half century (1726, 1729, 1733, 1737, 1742, 1745, 1755, 1758, 1762, 1765, 1769, 1772, 1775 and 1779).
These are for the Archdeaconry of Chichester, but all stem from epsicopal visitations. Archdeacons' visitations are represented in this period by much briefer manuscript presentments, which continue up to 1800. After this there are no regular files of manuscript presentments, and the few single documents that survive arise from specific parochial incidents.
The printed series for episcopal visitations of the Archdeaconry resumes in 1821 and continues until 1903, with the visitations usually being conducted at three yearly intervals. In 1825 begins the custom of sending an additional set of articles addressed to the minister.
Each type of article is, however, normally filed separately, and so will be found under the two references Ep/I/22 and Ep/I/22A - with the exception of the years 1838 and 1847 where both types of article have been bound up together and filed with the churchwardens' series.
After 1868, episcopal visitation articles are henceforth addressed solely to ministers.
A series of archdeacons' visitation articles commences in 1857, addressed to churchwardens only. In the latter years of the century these are normally issued annually but omitted in the years of the episcopal visitations.
The dates of the different types of nineteenth century articles are as follows:-
Episcopal articles to churchwardens: 1821 (Ep/I/22/1)
Episcopal articles to churchwardens and ministers: 1825
1828, 1838, 1847, 1850, 1853, 1856, 1859, 1862, 1865, 1868

PARISH REGISTER TRANSCRIPTS  Ep/IV/7  1610-1912

Archival history:
By a Canterbury provincial constitution (25 Oct. 1596; royal approval 1598), churchwardens were directed to send to the diocesan registry every year within a month of Easter (from 1603, within a month of Lady Day) a transcript of the parish register entries for the preceding year. Rose's Act (52 Geo. III c.146; in force 1 Jan. 1813) transferred the obligation to the incumbent, who was to return the transcripts, written on parchment, within two months of the end of each year. By the late 19th century many incumbents had stopped this practice, and the registry did not continue to demand the transcripts. For a few parishes transcripts were made and returned until the early 20th century, the last of all being Broadwater, where the series ends in 1936.
Even in earlier years transcripts were not always made and returned as directed

FACULTY PAPERS  Ep/IV/13  1783-1855


Related information: See Ep/I/88/3

Contents:
A faculty had to be obtained from the Chancellor of the Diocese before the fabric of the church (including in this context the churchyard and the parsonage house) could be altered in any way, except in the course of necessary repairs. Such alterations included the demolition and removal of, and substitutions for and additions to, the fabric of the church (most commonly its windows, galleries, screens, pews, vaults and memorials), the removal of bodies from one piece of consecrated ground to another and the sale of church land for road widening. Confirmatory faculties were sometimes issued in respect of work completed without previous authority, but many alterations must have been made without any kind of licence being granted. In some cases the application was successfully opposed, or occasionally it was not pursued beyond the initial petition. Faculties were not required for the Cathedral, except for the removal of bodies. These papers include the originals or copies of petitions for faculties, citations to lead faculties (published in the church porch and inviting objections), estimates, costs, drawings and plans of proposed alterations, public appeals and subscription lists, notices and agendas of meetings, papers relating to appeals against the Chancellor's decisions, draft and original faculties and licences, and related correspondence and memoranda.

PARISH REGISTER TRANSCRIPTS  Ep/V/10  1662-1908

Archival history:
By a Canterbury provincial constitution (25 Oct. 1596; royal approval 1598), churchwardens were directed to send to the diocesan registry every year within a month of Easter (from 1603, within a month of Lady Day) a transcript of the parish register entries for the preceding year. Rose's Act (52 Geo. III c.146; in force 1 Jan. 1813) transferred the obligation to the incumbent, who was to return the transcripts, written on parchment, within two months of the end of each year. By the late 19th century many incumbents had stopped this practice, and the registry did not continue to demand the transcripts. For a few parishes transcripts were made and returned until the early 20th century, the last of all being Broadwater, where the series ends in 1936.
Even in earlier years transcripts were not always made and returned as directed

FACULTY PAPERS  Ep/V/18  1747-1821


Related information: See Ep/I/88/3 and notes to Ep/I/40 (p. 57).

Contents:
A faculty had to be obtained from the Chancellor of the Diocese before the fabric of the church (including in this context the churchyard and the parsonage house) could be altered in any way, except in the course of necessary repairs. Such alterations included the demolition and removal of, and substitutions for and additions to, the fabric of the church (most commonly its windows, galleries, screens, pews, vaults and memorials), the removal of bodies from one piece of consecrated ground to another and the sale of church land for road widening. Confirmatory faculties were sometimes issued in respect of work completed without previous authority, but many alterations must have been made without any kind of licence being granted. In some cases the application was successfully opposed, or occasionally it was not pursued beyond the initial petition. Faculties were not required for the Cathedral, except for the removal of bodies. These papers include the originals or copies of petitions for faculties, citations to lead faculties (published in the church porch and inviting objections), estimates, costs, drawings and plans of proposed alterations, public appeals and subscription lists, notices and agendas of meetings, papers relating to appeals against the Chancellor's decisions, draft and original faculties and licences, and related correspondence and memoranda. The consecration papers consist mostly of conveyances and plans of sites for additional burial grounds or new chapels.

EPISCOPAL ESTATES  Ep/VI  [n.d.]

Arrangement: Ep/VI/28 was the number originally given to the group of leases relating to the Episcopal estates in Amberley, when the main collection of leases was catalogued these were transferred to complete the series and are now Ep/VI/56/3, 4, 25, 38, 42, 44, 45, 55 and 58


CARTULARIES  Ep/VI/1  13th-16th centuries

Copies information: Some originals of the charters which are copied here are still amongst the chapter records (Cap.I/17).


Arrangement: Until Bishop Sherburne's episcopate (1508-1536) Libri D and E formed one volume. At that time the volume was divided so that all provincial constitutions and allied documents were in Liber D and all royal charters and diocesan documents in Liber E. Later, possibly during the Civil War, Liber D was lost and passed into the hands of Elias Ashmole, the antiquary.



Related information: See Ep/VI/1/7 for Liber D

Contents:
Early charters from Ep/VI/1/6 volume have been printed by Dugdale, Kemble and Birch.

Bibliography: An account of the discovery of Liber D in the Bodleian Library (Ashmole 1146) by Mr. W. D. Peckham is in Sussex Notes and Queries, vol. 2, p. 105, where it is noted that there is a contemporary list of contents of both volumes, and a kalendar used in Chichester cathedral; this has been partly printed by W. D. Peckham in Sussex Notes and Queries, vol. 2, p. 105, and C. R. Cheney, Handbook of Dates (1945), p. 73.

Related information: A number of documents in this volume has been translated in Sussex Record Society, vol. 46, pp. 219-229; a short account appears in H.M.C., Var. Coll., I, p. 179.

Contents:
The contemporary title on f.3v. is "Liber m[agistri] Will[ielm]i Reed Ep[iscop]i Cicestr[ensis] que[m] scribi fecit p[er] Will-[ielm]um atte Hulle ..." The early roman foliation runs from ff.i-xxxviii consecutively, but there are traces of an earlier arabic foliation which prove that the present arrangement of folios is not original; more than half the volume is missing.

LIBER E  Ep/VI/I/4  16th - 18th century

147 Parchment folios

Repaired and rebound at the PRO in May 1936.

Contents:
Although many documents from Liber E have been printed during the past century there is no complete list of its contents in existence and, apart from those documents translated by Mr. Peckham, no indication of where a particular document has been printed. This calendar is not intended to include every citation of Liber E but only those in local journals and the following works:-
Walcott, Statutes of the Cathedral (1877)
Swainson, Chichester Cathedral (1880)
Bennet, Codrington and Deedes, Statutes of Cathedral (1904). Cited as B.C.D.
Hist. MSS. Comm. Report in Various Collections, vol. I. Cited as H.M.C.
Birch's Cartularium Saxonicum
The numbers without any citation are to the documents printed in the Cartulary of Chichester Cathedral (Sussex Rec. Soc., vol. 46) by Mr. Peckham and this calendar must be used in conjunction with that volume. All printed references are to the early foliation of Liber E which dates from the period when Libri D and E formed one volume; this foliation is added in brackets after the modern folio numbers.

PIE POWDER COURT BOOK AND PAPERS  Ep/VI/11  1582-1801

Administrative history:
The right to hold a fair between 5 and 13 October annually on Sloe Fair Field in Chichester was first granted to the bishop by Henry I, c. 1107-8. During that period the jurisdiction of the mayor and corporation of Chichester was completely in abeyance and during the 18th century this led to frequent disputes between the bishop and corporation. In 1807 the bishop surrendered his rights to the corporation.

Related information: Details of other leases can sometimes be obtained from the registers (Ep/VI/51 and Ep/VI/55/1) and the rentals (particularly Ep/VI/2/11 and 13), which often give names and ages of the cestui qui vies.

Contents:
These are the surviving leases (and allied papers) relating to episcopal property in and around Chancery Lane, London.
The registers are not comprehensive. The original site numbers of these properties are indicated here by the figure after Ep/VI/53/
In c.1820, the properties were identified more precisely and divided into smaller units which were then re-numbered as follows:-
1. Red Peruke, Chancery Lane (1)
2. 21 houses in White's Alley (2 and 4)
3. Messuage in Chancery Lane (3)
4. Messuage in Chancery Lane and Rooms in Breams Buildings (5)

32. Rooms, etc.
33. Rooms, etc.
34. Chambers, etc.
35. Shop and rooms, etc.
36. Coffee House, etc.
Although the original number is in brackets, it will be seen that the geographical location of the divided properties does not always appear to correspond with the site of the original property, but the deeds, whether of a whole or undivided property, are physically stored under the original number.
Bundles of later deeds (Ep/VI/53/31-43), without site numbers are identified by modern house and street names
Many of the leases in Ep/VI/53/31-43 are endorsed with details of transactions to 1925.

Contents:
From the time of Dean Birch (1801-1836) there were numerous tithe disputes between the deans and parishioners, and many of these papers relate to cases which were brought into open courts (e.g. Birch v. Harrison, Littler v. Eldridge). The later documents relate also to leases and conveyances of part of the glebe. As far as possible the papers have been kept in the original bundles in which they were received.

CHICHESTER THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE  Ep/IX  1839-1994

Arrangement: The original arrangement of the archive has in most cases been preserved. Consequently, one reference (e.g. a file of papers relating to a college festival) may contain items which, had they been separate, would have been arranged under different classes. Readers should therefore note the cross-references provided.



Related information: Further records are located under Cap.V/9/1-3. Reference to these has been made under the relevant class.

Administrative history:
1839: College founded by Henry (later Cardinal) Manning, Rector of Woolavington; Bishop Otter; and George Chandler, Dean of Chichester. The first principal is Charles Marriott (to March 1841), whose hardwriting begins the first log book (IX/1/1).
1841: Charles Marriott resigns as principal due to ill-health
1842: Henry Browne becomes principal (to November 1845).
1846: Bishop Freeman appointed principal in March, the college having suspended its operations since Henry Browne's resignation the previous November.
1854: Charles Anthony Swainson succeeds as principal
1870: Arthur Rawson Ashwell succeeds as principal, and the number of students soon increases. Some of his comments on the students are preserved in his register, continued by the next principal (Ep/IX/1/6). Canon Ashwell started a Guild of the Holy Road, later renamed the Guild of St. Faith, whose minute book for 1894-95 survives (Ep/IX/7/5/2).
1879: On the death of Canon Ashwell, William Awdry is appointed principal. The college continues to flourish under him.
1884: Alterations made to the Vicars' Hall - used by the college as a Lecture room and Library (see Ep/IX/10/1/1 & 2).
1886: Josiah Sanders Teulon succeeds as principal. The number of students gradually declines.
1889: College 50th jubilee celebrations
1899: Canon Teulon resigns the principalship but retains his residentiary canonry which creates financial problems for the college. At a meeting of the college council, it is resolved to meet the vice-principal with a view to winding-up the college. However, the vice-principal makes a successful case for continuing and Herbert Rickard is appointed the new principal.
1903: The hostel in West Street is bought for £1000 by the college council, the balance being paid by the principal in memory of his wife. This was refitted and became the college headquarters.
1914-18: During the latter part of the war the college was closed.
1918: Prebendary Rickard accepts the living of Amberley and Herman Leonard Pass takes his place as principal
1919: The hostel is sold and the proceeds go towards the purchase of new headquarters in Westgate for £3500. On May 1st. the college is formally re-opened by Bishop Ridgeway (his last episcopal act) and dedicated to S. Richard. An army hut, previously used as a church of wounded soldiers in Brighton (See Ep/IX/10/3/1-3) is re-erected by the new headquarters to serve as a chapel.
1920: The college acquires a three-year lease of a house opposite the college buildings and equips it as a hostel. The principal is appointed vicar of S. Bartholomew's - the parish in which the college stands - and the vicarage is also subsequently used as a hostel.
1922: First number of The Cicestrian, the college magazine
1925: Chichester Theological College Ltd. is incorporated. (For the minute books 1926-67, see Ep/IX/2/1 & 2.) Important Eastern prelates visit Chichester.
1927: The buildings in Westgate enlarged by the addition of the Bishop Ridgeway Memorial Wing (see Ep/IX/10/4/1).
1929: The college celebrates its 90th anniversary.
1930: The college acquires a short lease on 18 Westgate to provide extra accommodation for students.
1932: Charles Scott Gillett succeeds as principal
1934: The tenancy of 18 Westgate is relinquished, being replaced by 46 West Street
1935: The Ecclesiastical Commissioners buy the house at 3 Westgate, which is leased to the college and named 'Marriott House'. The vicarage and all but a few rooms hired as lodgings are given up.
1939: The college's centenary is celebrated
1941: The college is forced to move temporarily to Cambridge. About this time the buildings in Chichester are in use by the military authorities.
1942: The principal is invited to assume temporarily the duties of principal of the Edinburgh Theological College. Canon Gillett accepts, taking with him the remaining Chichester students from Cambridge.
1945: The college buildings are sold, with the exception of Marriott House.
1946: The college re-opens on 21st October at Marriott House with John Richard Humpidge Moorman as principal, Canon Gillett having resigned due to failing health. The new principal's journal is among the records (Ep/IX/1/8).
1956: Cheslyn Peter Montague Jones succeeds as principal (to 1969).
1959: The parish of S. Bartholomew is united with S. Paul's and the former parish church (of S. Bartholomew) becomes the college chapel.
1963: The Bp. of Chichester lays the foundation stone of the new college building
1965: The new building, Gillett House, is opened by the Archbishop of Canterbury. 19 Westgate is sold (26th May).
1968: On September 2nd the Feast of the New Guinea martyrs is celebrated and a memorial to Vivian Redlich - a sculpture of an owl, by Darsie Rawlins - is unveiled.
1970: Alan Bassindale Wilkinson succeeds as principal (to 1974).
1974: The Archbishop of Canterbury visits the college.
1975: Robert John Halliburton succeeds as principal
1982: John William Hind succeeds as principal.
