The Archiepiscopal registers are the official record of the archbishops' activities in the Diocese and show the changing role of the church over a period of four centuries. They include ecclesiastical, legal, social and financial business. Individual matters include the influx of money into the church, building places of worship, religious trials dispensations, appointments and granting of licenses. The series spans records from the beginnings of registration in the 13th century up to the abolition of the episcopacy in 1646. The Bishops' registers are the working records of the medieval prelates who had power over ecclesiastical and temporal affairs. They record benefices, royal writs and patronages. Priory registers include manorial and estate records.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
