The List of Vicars
The list on the board above has many omissions and some mistakes. Below is a corrected list of early Vicars. Where the date is shown in red, the clergyman named is known from ancient deeds to have been Vicar at that date, but the time of his institution is unknown.
Where the date is shown in black, it is the date of institution.
The list is complete from William de Walton who resigned in 1368 to John Robinson who was instituted in 1424, and from Christopher Holden who ceased to be Vicar in 1574 onwards.

1160, 1165Adam

(not Capellanus as the board says)
1391John de Derlyngton
(The "John de Beryngham" who follows
appears to be the same person, Beryngham
being a mistake for Beryngton, which is in
turn a manuscript error for Derlyngton.)
