Diocese of Norwich: Parsonage House Mortgages and Repairs

  • DN/PHM
  • Fonds
  • 1779-1951

Under Gilbert's Act 17 Geo. III c.53 (1776), incumbents were permitted to mortgage a parsonage house, where there was one, and the benefice income deriving from the glebe and other rights and titles, in order to raise money to build a new, or repair the old, parsonage house. All mortgage deeds were to be registered with the diocesan registry and the counterpart kept by the incumbent. A later Act of 28 & 29 Vic. c.69 (1865) allowed incumbents to borrow money for the purpose of building, or re-building, outhouses or other premises belonging to the parsonage or for repairing the chancel of the parish church. From 1779 until 1st July 1842, the deeds were copied into a register. Thereafter they were deposited at the registry and numbered consecutively upon receipt. An index to these deeds is in the last mortgage register, ref. DN/PHM 2/3. Persons nominated by the incumbent to hold the funds raised by the mortgage were required to enter into a bond to fulfill the terms of the mortgage: see DN/PHM 4. Up to 1918, nominees' accounts and, in some cases, surveyor's certificates, were also deposited with the deed. Occasionally parsonage house conveyance deeds were also included: but see too, list DN/DPL 4.

Diocese of Norwich: Licences for Non-Residence

  • DN/NRL
  • Fonds
  • 1804-1952

The Residence Act of 1803 established a system of licensing for non-resident clergy.

These records are licences granted by the Bishop permitting incumbents to reside elsewhere than within their benefices. After the Pluralities Act -of 1838 introduced new limits on pluralism, a new printed form was introduced in 1839 for the licences of those who resided elsewhere because there was no parsonage house or it was unfit to live in, and these were filed separately although some licences issued for these reasons also continued to be entered on the older type of form. See DN/NRL 15 for an index of clergy names in this series.
