• Commissioners of Ecclesiastical Duties and Reve' nues,' have prepared, and now humbly lay before Your Majesty in Council, the following scheme for the augmentation of the several archdeaconries of Richmond in the diocese of Ripon, of Nottingham in the diocese of Lincoln, of Sudbury in the diocese of Ely, of Sarum in the diocese of Salisbury, and of Salop in the diocese of Lichfield :
“ Whereas by an Order of His late Majesty in Council, bearing date the fifth day of October one thousand eight hundred and thirty-six, and duly made under the authority of an Act passed in the seventh year of the reign of His said Majesty, intituled “An Act for carrying into effect the reports • of the Commissioners appointed to consider the • state of the Established Church in England and
Wales, with reference to ecclesiastical duties and • revenues, so far as they relate to episcopal dioceses, • revenues, and patronage,' the said archdeaconry of Richmond was founded in the diocese of Ripon, and the Venerable John Headlam, Master of Arts, the then archdeacon of the archdeaconry of Richmond in the diocese of Chester, thereupon became and now is archdeacon of the said archdeaconry of Richmond in the said diocese of Ripon, and the said archdeaconry is insufficiently endowed :
“ And whereas by two several Orders of your Majesty in Council, duly made under the authority of the last-recited Act, and bearing date respectively the twenty-first day of August in the year one thousand eight hundred and thirty-seven, and the fourth day of June in the year one thousand eight hundred and forty-one, the said archdeaconry of Nottingham was
transferred from the diocese of York to the said diocese of Lincoln, and the duties of the archdeacon thereof were considerably increased, and the Venerable George Wilkins, Doctor in Divinity, then was and still is the archdeacon of the same archdeaconry:
" And whereas by an Act passed in the session of Parliament held in the fourth and fifth years of Your Majesty's reign, intituled “An Act to explain and ' amend two several Acts relating to the Ecclesiastical • Commissioners for England, the said archdeaconry of Nottingham, the income whereof is now very sinall, is endowed by the annexation thereto of the rectory of Southwell, but such endowment is not to take effect until the next vacancy of the said rectory:
“ And whereas by an Order of His late Majesty in Council, duly made under the authority of the secondlyrecited Act, and bearing date the nineteenth day of April in the year one thousand eight hundred and thirty-seven, the said archdeaconry of Sudbury was transferred from the diocese of Norwich to the said diocese of Ely, and the boundaries of the same archdeaconry were so altered as to diminish the annual income of the archdeacon thereof, and the Venerable George Glover, Master of Arts, then was and still is the archdeacon of the same archdeaconry :
“ And whereas the average annual incomes of the said archdeaconries of Sarum and Salop are very small, and the present archdeacons thereof are not otherwise competently provided for, and the Venerable Francis Lear, Master of Arts, was at the time of passing the said first-recited Act and still is archdeacon of the said archdeaconry of Sarum, and the Venerable
Edward Bather, Master of Arts, then was and still is archdeacon of the said archdeaconry of Salop:
" And whereas it is by the said first-recited Act enacted, that any archdeaconry may, subject to the consent of the bishop, be endowed, amongst other modes, out of the common fund in the same Act mentioned, but so as not to raise the average annual income of such archdeaconry to an amount exceeding two hundred pounds, provided that no archdeacon shall be entitled to hold any endowment or augmentation or other emolument as such archdeacon, under the provisions of the same Act, unless he shall be resident for the space of eight months in every year within the diocese in which his archdeaconry is situate, or as to any archdeacon then existing, within the diocese in which his archdeaconry was then situate :
• We, therefore, humbly recommend and propose, with the consent of the Right Reverend John Bishop of Lincoln, Joseph Bishop of Ely, Charles Thomas Bishop of Ripon, Edward Bishop of Salisbury, and James Bishop of Lichfield respectively, testified by their having signed and sealed this scheme, that the said archdeaconries of Richmond, Nottingham, Sudbury, Sarum, and Salop shall be severally endowed by augmentation out of the said common fund, and that accordingly there shall be paid by us, out of the same fund, to the said John Headlam Archdeacon of Richmond, George Wilkins Archdeacon of Nottingham, George Glover Archdeacon of Sudbury, Francis Lear Archdeacon of Sarum, and Edward Bather Archdeacon of Salop, so long as they shall respectively continue to be such archdeacons, and shall duly reside
within the dioceses in which their archdeaconries are respectively situate, or were respectively situate before the passing of the same Act, and to their respective successors in the said archdeaconries, so long as they shall hold the same, and shall duly reside in the diocese in which their archdeaconries are respectively situate, but in the case of the said archdeaconry of Nottingham, not after the time when the said rectory of Southwell shall become annexed thereto, the several annual sums following ; that is to say, to the Archdeacon of Richmond for the time being the sum of one hundred and thirty pounds, to the Archdeacon of Nottingham for the time being the sum of one hundred and sixty pounds, to the Archdeacons of Sudbury and Sarum for the time being respectively the sum of one hundred and forty pounds, and to the Archdeacon of Salop for the time being the sum of one hundred and fifty pounds, on the first day of January in every year; and every such whole yearly payment to each of such archdeacons shall be made only on production to us of a certificate, under the hand of the bishop for the time being of the diocese in which his archdeaconry is situate, that such archdeacon has duly resided as aforesaid during the preceding year; and the first of such payments shall be made on the first day of January next ensuing; and whenever a vacancy in
of the said archdeaconries shall happen on any other day than the first day of January, the then next yearly payment shall be duly apportioned between and paid to the archdeacon making the vacancy, or his representatives, and the archdeacon succeeding
same archdeaconry; and on the day of such annexation of the rectory of Southwell to the said
archdeaconry of Nottingham, if happening on any other day than the first day of January, there shall be paid by us to the then Archdeacon of Nottingham a due proportion only of the said annual payment of one hundred and sixty pounds.
6 And we further recommend and propose, that nothing herein contained shall prevent us from recommending and proposing any other measure touching any of the matters to which this scheme relates, in conformity with the provisions of the said Acts, or either of them, or of any other Act of Parliament.”
And whereas the said scheme has been approved by Her Majesty in Council ; now, therefore, Her Majesty, by and with the advice of Her said Council, is pleased hereby to ratify the said scheme, and to order and direct that the same, and every part thereof, shall be effectual in law immediately from and after the time when this Order shall have been duly published in the London Gazette, pursuant to the said Act; and Her Majesty, by and with the like advice, is pleased hereby to direct that this Order be forthwith registered by the registrars of the several dioceses of Lincoln, Ely, Ripon, Salisbury, and Lichfield.
