Diocese of Norwich: Ordination candidates' papers

  • DN/ORD
  • Fonds
  • 1713-1986

Papers submitted by candidates for ordination. Before 1748 the papers consist largely of letters of testimonial concerning the fitness of candidates for orders. From about 1748 the papers should contain five documents: a signification, naming the candidate and his place of abode; a si quis or notice of application for ordination which usually names a parish of residence; proof of age, usually a baptism certificate; letters of testimonial from a college and other referees living in or near the candidate's parish of residence; and a proof of title to orders (that is, proof of possession of a curacy, benefice, college fellowship or other means of subsistence suitable to the ordinand's new order). Alternatively, a candidate could be ordained by letter dimissory, a letter of recommendation from the bishop in whose diocese the candidate held his title. In such a case, the candidate's ordination papers should remain in the custody of the bishop who issued the letter dimissory. The more recent papers are less informative, but still may include references to the candidate's education and training and also photocopy birth/baptims certificates.

Diocese of Norwich: Diocesan Quinquennials

  • DN/QQN
  • Fonds
  • 1951-1990

Under the Inspection of Churches Measure, 1955, churches were to be inspected by a surveyor approved by the diocese within five years of the passing of the Measure and every five years thereafter. A quinquennial report was received by the diocese and the parish and can sometimes be found amongst the parish records and the records of the surveyor. Occasionally, a repair specification was drawn up at the time of the inspection and sent with, or instead of, the report. The Diocesan Advisory Committee is now responsible for the administration of these records.
