The data presented below has been extracted from the registers of the Bishops of Hereford. The Cantilupe Society took the initiative to make the registers from 1275 to 1900 available to the public and they were translated and published as books between 1907 and about 1921, often by the Canterbury and York Society. The references are available below.


The institutions presented form a complete extract from all the available Bishop's Registers of Hereford Diocese from 1275 to 1900. However, not all registers exist - see the list of Bishops for the status of each register.


There are many institutions to chantries in the registers but, because of the volume involved, all have been extracted as a single web page. Students of chantry institution can obtain such institutions by access to the spreadsheets.

How to Use

Clicking on a relevant entry takes you to the benefice. Using the alphabetic index takes you to the benefices starting with the chosen letter. There is a little help available for those without experience of the complexities of benefice management.
