Vol XVII: Doing the Duty of the Parish: Surveys of the Church in Hampshire 1810

Doing the Duty of the Parish: Surveys of the Church in Hampshire 1810
Edited by M Page (1999)

Returns made by Hampshire clergy to two surveys commissioned by the bishop of Winchester in September 1810 into the state of his church. The returns survive for almost all parishes in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, providing information about their incumbents and curates, the capacity of church buildings, and the presence of dissenting places of worship. The edition includes extensive biographical notes on the clergy mentioned and a substantial introduction which provides a detailed picture of the parochial system in early 19th-century Hampshire, and raises key issues about the later Hanoverian Church and the process of Church reform.
