Appendix to the Worcester "REGISTRUM SEDE VACANTE".


THIS Appendix contains three lists which have been compiled to illustrate the distribution of the patronage of the benefices in the diocese in the 14th and 15th centuries.

No. 1. is an alphabetical list of all benefices and patrons in the diocese that are mentioned or referred to in the Sede Vacante Register during the vacancy of the See. It will be found that the names of 332 benefices with their patrons are given; of these 262 were in ecclesiastical, and the remaining 72 were in lay patronage.

No. 2. shews the distribution of ecclesiastical patronage among the different religious bodies; the results are curious. Gloucester and Tewkesbury seem to be the great patrons of ecclesiastical benefices, Worcester was not really so rich in benefices as might have been expected.

No. 3. shews the distribution of lay patronage. It will be seen that at the head of the list stood the King, but he appears in at least three capacities, (1) as sovereign, (2) as feudal guardian, (3) as acting for the bishop during a vacancy of the see; the Beauchamps seem to have been the great owners. It will also be noticed that those presentations in lay hands were usually connected with some estate, property, or office, and are never found as now, severed from everything, and merely held in gross. By far the largest portion of the preferments were owned in the diocese, so the livings when they fell vacant were usually given to people in the diocese, which probably helped to maintain its strong individuality.

A list of the names of Popes, Kings, Archbishops, Priors, and Archdeacons, during each vacancy, is added.
