Bishop Burton parish:
Bishop Burton, Vicars transcription:The List of Vicars in All Saints Church, Bishop Burton.
Bishop Burton belonged originally to the Church of York, and the Archbishop was Lord of the Manor until 1535 when Archbishop Lea surrendered it to the Crown. The parish church became early a possession of the Dean and Chapter of York by a Bull of Pope Coelestine III in 1194.
The Dean and Chapter also became Rectors of the church, it is said in 1264, and it was thenceforward served by a Vicar appointed by them. This arrangement continued until 1888 when the right of appointing the Vicar was transferred from the Dean and Chapter to Ernest Richard Bradley Hall Watt of Bishop Burton, Esquire, and to his heirs for ever.
No Name of a Rector of Bishop Burton nor any Vicar before 1349 has been recovered.
