Archdeacon of Nottingham

The Archdeacon of Nottingham is a senior ecclesiastical officer in the Church of England Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, who exercises supervision of clergy and responsibility for church buildings within the Archdeaconry of Nottingham.

HistoryEdit

The ancient Archdeaconry of Nottingham was an extensive ecclesiastical jurisdiction within the Diocese of York, England. It was created around 1100 – at which time the first archdeacons were being created across the nation – and comprised almost the whole of the county of Nottinghamshire, and was divided into the four deaneries of Nottingham, Newark, Bingham and Retford. The archdeaconry remained as a division of York diocese for more than seven centuries before, on 5 September 1837[1] it was transferred by Order in Council to the Diocese of Lincoln.

The archdeaconry was transferred once more when it, along with the Archdeaconry of Derby, was used to create the new diocese of Southwell on 5 February 1884,[2] of which it has remained a part since; it is now one of the two archdeaconries in the renamed Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, the other being the Archdeaconry of Newark, which was formed by Order in Council on 11 June 1912[3] from the northern half of the Nottingham archdeaconry.

List of archdeaconsEdit

Some archdeacons without territorial titles are recorded from around the time of Thomas of Bayeux; see Archdeacon of York.

NotesEdit

  1. ^ Geoffrey occurs in a list with the other four archdeacons in the diocese, so his territory can be deduced as Nottingham.
