Thanks Stan and Newburychap,


So if he was actually just appointed as a priest by the Bishop of Peterborough in 1572 and he had 2 years before he was given his own parish, would that mean:-

a) he spent a couple of years working for the Bishop of Peterborough either in Peterborough Cathedral or in the Diocese of Peterborough, which covered Northamptonshire, Rutland and the Soke of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire?

b) he is likely to have been born in the Diocese of Peterborough and perhaps educated there? (his son Samuel was made vicar of Gamlingay, Cambs and there are a few "Hugh Lane" IGI entries very nearby at Sandy, Beds)


Following Ordination a member of the clergy becomes a Deacon, and can Baptise, officiate at Funerals, and administer the Holy Communion. After a year as a Deacon they are Priested by a Bishop, and can then do all a Deacon does and Celebrate the Eucharist, Solemnise a Marriage, Give Absolution, Give a Blessing. They usually remain Curates for a number of years before moving on to become a Vicar of a parish etc.

HuGENDON Master Hugh Lane, vicar; ord. pr. by the bp. of Peterborough, 19 Sept., 1572 ; /. 8^/. ; /. he has to exhibit. [/i]"

Three questions:-

1) Why would a vicar be appointed to a parish in Bucks (Hughendon) by the Bishop of Peterborough???
2) Can the level of education received by the vicar be determined from the entry?
3) What exactly does it mean by "he has to exhibit"?

Many Thanks

Exhibit; The documents (letters of orders, institution and induction, etc.) which a beneficed or licensed clergyman may be required to produce at the first visitation after his admission. Hence, the fees payable on presenting these documents. OED

I also found another mention of the vicar in question:-

"162 SUBSIDY OF ARMOUR, a.d. 1590
WENDOVER DECANATUS

Hychendenn vicaria Mr [Hugo] Lane a Bowe."


Surely this can't mean that the vicar owned a Bow and arrows? :o

decanatus according to the free Latin Dictionary = a deanery.
WENDOVER DECANATUS = Deanery of Wendover
"162 SUBSIDY OF ARMOUR, a.d. 1590. A subsidy was a Tax, and it could be related to the Lay Subsidy
Hychendenn vicaria = Vicar of Hughenden

The 'present owner' in 1925.

I don't think that advowsons have anything to do with the modern chuch. Too many team ministries and combined parishes. I know that parishes local to me select their own vicars/rectors - a responsibility of the PCC (with the Archdeacon watching closely). I guess advowsons went out with the tithes that made them valuable.


"The right to present or appoint a person to a benefice is known as the 'right of patronage', and if the right is perpetual it is known as an 'advowson'." from "A Handbook for Churchwardens and Parochial Church Councillors", 2007.
