The List of Vicars at Ingleby Greenhow.


A List of the Clergy
of
Ingleby Greenhow,
With Historical Notes.
Patron: The Right Hon. Lord De L'isle and Dudley.
-
In his monograph on Ingleby Church, the late Rev. John Howell, M.A. F.G.S., gives A
List of the Clergy of Ingleby Greenhow. In it there is a wide gap from 1211 to 1592.
From the latter date, the succession of clergy is obtained from the Parish Church Registers.
-
There is no authentic record prior to 1592, except three from the Whitby Chartulary.
-
The writer has endeavoured to compile a list within the period named above, the
sources of information being given. Owing to the meagreness of this information, the
various dates must not be taken as representing either the appointment or retirement of the
persons named. It has proved an impossible task. Hence it follows the list is both incom-
plete and imperfect. At the same time it may chance to be interesting to those who
read, and perhaps be the means of enabling some other person in the future of adding to,
and thus making it more complete and perfect.
