Cathedral Officials

For the Pre-Reformation period, records of Cathedral Officials are primarily to be found in the Obedientiary rolls, records of Dependent Cells and Bailiffs' Accounts. Subsequently, the main records are the Appointments recorded in the Chapter Act Books and the payment of salaries recorded in the Treasurer's Rolls and Audit Books.

By charter of 2 May 1538, Henry VIII created the Dean and Chapter, comprising six Prebends: the nomination to these offices was reserved to the Crown, exercised by the Lord Chancellor. By the Cathedral Act of 3 and 4 Victoria c.113 [11 August 1840] all residentiary members of the Chapter, except the Dean, were styled Canons: at the time, the Second and Third Canons were suspended, so that after that date there are only four Canons. By letters patent of Queen Anne dated 26 April 1714, the First Prebend that fell vacant was to be annexed forever to the Mastership of St Catherine's College, Cambridge. The first to fall vacant was the Fourth Prebend in 1719 and this was annexed accordingly. This arrangement continued until 1927.

The Chapter

The Dean and Chapter was founded by Henry VIII in 1538 and refounded by Edward VI in 1547. The earliest surviving Chapter Act Book begins in 1566 and the series is complete from that date (there was no chapter between 1649 and 1660). Supporting Chapter papers and Chapter Clerk's papers survive from the eighteenth century.
At times, books have also been kept containing a more detailed record of Chapter business than is recorded in the Act Books:
1694-1724, in Dean Prideaux's diaries [DCN 115/1-3]
1829-1866, in Dean Pellew's diaries [DCN 120/1-7]
1870-1884, in the Private Registers [DCN 27/3-4]
1886-1889, in Dean Goulburn's notebooks [DCN 121/5-8]
Listed as follows:

DCN 25 Chapter Papers
DCN 26 Chapter Clerk's Papers
DCN 27 Private Registers

Documents of Title

The earliest surviving records of Norwich Cathedral are royal, episcopal and private grants to the Priory from the time of its establishment in Norwich in c 1095, with one royal charter addressed to the Bishop of Thetford predating the move. The medieval arrangement of these documents is shown in the inventory of muniments [DCN 40/12] and by pressmarks on the documents themselves:
A-B Royal grants issued to the Priory
C Royal grants pertaining to the Bishopric
D-F Episcopal charters.
G Final concords.
J-Z Private grants arranged topographically and by Official.

The possessions of the Infirmarer, Pitancer and Hostilar are included under the villages in which they also had estates. The inventory does not include records of the possessions of the Almoner, Chamberlain or Refectorer nor of the Dependent Cells. Papal Bulls and the Acta of Archbishops are also omitted, although Papal Mandates for particular churches are included as title for those churches.
A large number of grants are transcribed into cartularies (known usually as registers), normally without witness or dating clauses. There is no overall cartulary for the Priory, but there are cartularies for the larger departments: Master of the Cellar, Almoner, Cellarer, Chamberlain and Sacrist.

Peculiar Administration

Dean and Chapter Peculiar administration extended over the parishes of Arminghall, West Beckham, Catton, Hindolveston, Martham, Norwich St Mary in the Marsh (which included the Cathedral Precinct), Norwich St Helen, Norwich St James Pockthorpe, Norwich St Paul, Eaton, Lakenham, Great Plumstead, Sedgeford, Sprowston and Trowse and before the reformation only of Hindringham, Scratby, Taverham and Winterton.

The Peculiar was exempt from the Archdeacons' jurisdiction, but not from that of the Bishop.

Many records of the Dean and Chapter Peculiar administration passed to diocesan officials as a result of administrative changes after 1812, and are now listed with the main series of diocesan records held by the Norfolk Record Office.

Visitations within the Dean and Chapter Peculiar are recorded in the Norwich Archdeaconry series for the period 1545-1583.
