Archival history The action of the Dean and Chapter of Chichester in depositing its archives in the Diocesan Record Office followed the establishment of that Office by the Bishop of Chichester on 21 July 1949; the agreement between the Dean and Chapter and the West Sussex County Council is dated 8 June 1951. Since then, there have been various accessions of records which form this collection.
There are some large and unfortunate gaps in the records; these may be due to the outrages against the Cathedral during the Civil War, to the neglect of generations of registrars, or to the wanton destruction of "old papers".
Source of acquisition No distinction has been made between records which have been received at different times
Creators Diocese of Chichester
Arrangement Due to the previous sortings to which the records have been subjected, to the fact that they came in at intervals of time, and that they received numbers which have been quoted in print, the problems in preparing this list have been increased. In brief, however, documents have only been transferred from one class to another where earlier mis-sorting made this unavoidable.
Those documents transferred to the Diocesan Record Office by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners have been merged, where possible, with existing classes and the remainder listed in a separate section.

Many volumes have been foliated or paginated more than once, but it is advisable always to follow the pencil foliation when using a book in the collection; it has been the rule in compiling this Catalogue to use what is believed to be the most recent foliation. A higher folio or page number preceding a lower (e.g. ff. 10-3, pp. 312-260) indicates that the volume has been used from both ends.
It should be emphasized that the printed catalogue marks under which any records are described are those which should be quoted; the earlier (and often confusing) catalogue marks, if they are found on documents, should be ignored. Seals and types of binding have only been noted if they are of special interest.

Microfilm of Univ. MS. 148 in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. This is the medieval copy of the statutes which was in the possession of Dean Crowcher in the mid 15th cent., but by 1692 had passed into the hands of the Langbaine family who gave it to University College, Oxford

STATUTES AND INJUNCTIONS  Cap/I/2  1534-1798

Contents:
Most of these exemplifications have been copied into the statute or act books. Both statutes (made by the Chapter with episcopal consent) and injunctions (sent to the Chapter by the bishop) were generally made at the time of the episcopal visitation, so the division between them is very narrow.

Contents:
These volumes contain minutes of Chapter meetings, including episcopal elections, administrative orders for the Cathedral and the Chapter estates, installation and admission of prebendaries, vicars choral, lay vicars and other officers, notes of leases granted (before register books were kept the whole lease was copied), confirmation of episcopal grants and other memoranda. The volumes were lettered on being rebound at the beginning of the 19th century, when the existence of what is here Cap/I/3/0 and Cap/I/3/1a was apparently unknown.
From 1879 they include references to the running of the Prebendal School, with particular detail during the Second World War.
From June 1944 the series continues as minute books rather than act books but the content is largely the same.

DRAFT ACT BOOKS  Cap/I/3A  1874-1901

Contents:
These volumes appear to have been made on the orders of Sir Robert Raper while he was Chapter clerk (1874-1901); they contain many original letters and notices, as well as the draft minutes, and are usually more informative than the act books.

Draft acts.  Cap/I/3A/1  May 1874-Aug. 1888

300 ff.

Draft acts.  Cap/I/3A/2  Nov. 1888-July 1901

302 ff.

Contents:
F.301 contains the draft appointment of Sir Robert Raper's successor, William Bennett Barton Freeland).

CHAPTER MINUTES, 1722-1827 and CHAPTER PAPERS, 1545-1919  Cap/I/4  1545-1919

Arrangement: Cap/I/4/4-10 is composed of the former Cap/I/10 and Cap/I/4/1 and 2.
Both these groups were found to contain the working papers of the Chapter, and the distinction between them was obviously artificial. Documents of the same type, and on the same subjects, were found in both groups, and most of the earlier papers had been filed in the same way, on a single spike.
For convenience, the documents have been divided into subject groups as follows:
Cap/I/4/4 - Establishment [Cathedral staff, prebendaries, etc.]
Cap/I/4/5 - Fabric.
Cap/I/4/6 - Personal property.
Cap/I/4/7 - Real property.
Cap/I/4/8 - Accounts and papers concerning finance.
Cap/I/4/9 - Correspondence.
Cap/I/4/10 - Miscellaneous.


Draft minutes of the quarterly Chapter meetings  Cap/I/4/3  Oct. 1722 - Jan. 1750 and Aug. 1794 - Oct. 1827

250 Docs.

Contents:

Bishop Sherburne's Title Deeds  Cap/I/15  circa 1250 - 1534

39 documents

Archival history:
The tragedy is that they represent only a fraction of the originals which must once have existed. In Cap/I/17/25 there is a reference to the muniment room at the Church at Chichester, so some organised method of preserving documents existed by the middle of the thirteenth century. It was at about that date that the compilation of the earliest extant cartulary Liber Y (Ep. VI/I/I) was begun. Liber Y and the late fourteenth century cartularies were probably compiled as evidence in case of the loss of the originals, but in fact the compilation of the cartularies may have encouraged the neglect of the originals, which were no longer needed as legal evidence.
The religious changes of the sixteenth century meant the end of those masses for the dead and the chantries with which many of the documents were concerned. One cannot know the effect this may have had on the documents. It is usual to blame the Puritan troops of Sir William Waller, who sacked the Cathedral in 1642, for great depredations to all Cathedral property, including the muniments. However, at his visitation in 1616, Bishop Samual Harsnett found it necessary to ask "By whose default principally are your evidences wanting and lost ?" (Cap/I/12/3 pp. 267-271). There had obviously been some careless custodians of the records long before the Civil War.
When Canon William Clark (1696-1771) listed the "papers" in the "Chapter House Chest" and the "long box" he listed forty documents, of which nine are too modern to be of immediate relevance, fifteen are now part of Cap/I/17, and the rest are divided between Cap/I/15, Cap/III/1 and Cap/I/13.
In 1901, R. L. Poole reported to the Historical Manuscripts Commission that there were only twentyfive original charters remaining among the muniments of the diocese of Chichester. These twentyfive had been discovered "not long ago" in a drawer in the Canons' vestry, and removed to the Cathedral library. Poole added that it was difficult to be certain how many documents did remain, since they were neither in one depository nor under a single custody. He concluded from the various references to a chest, which housed the documents, that there had been at some time more than twentyfive originals, enough for a chest for them to be necessary.
The initial creation of Cap/I/15 as an archive groups was done by C. E. Welch
Language:  Latin

Arrangement: The series includes runs of charters of the same property which have been arranged in parishes


Supplementary information: A calendar is Cap/I/51/6
The text of about a quarter of the documents has already appeared in print, mostly from the transcriptions in the cartularies (See W. D. Peekham, Sussex Record Society, Vol. 46, and H. Mayr Harting, The Acta of the Bishops of Chichester, 1075-1207.

Contents:
This collections and Cap/I/17 contain the oldest original documents relating to the Dean and Chapter of Chichester which have survived.
Contains the original documents relating to the property concerned in Bishop Sherborne's donation to the cathedral which were not copied into the the Sherborne cartularies and are excluded from Cap/I/16-17
Includes a high proportion of documents concerning East Sussex and other counties, fifteen out of the thirty-nine. The documents range in date the majority being fifteenth and sixteenth century.
The documents are important for the fragments which they add to our knowledge, of medieval Chichester in particular. To give one example, from the information in Cap/I/15 and Cap/I/17 together with the Chichester City charters (catalogued by W. D. Peckham in Sussex Archaeological Collections Vol. 89) the list of mayors of Chichester has been extended and considerably revised, and a list of reeves of the city has been made.
In this catalogue all the legible details of the documents have been given, but endorsements have only been noted if they contribute any further information. Seals have been described only if the device or legend are at least partially legible. Where a very approximate date has been assigned to a document the dating has been on palaeographical evidence, for want of any other

Ancient Deeds  Cap/I/17  ?689-Circa 1850

91 documents

Archival history:
The tragedy is that they represent only a fraction of the originals which must once have existed. In Cap/I/17/25 there is a reference to the muniment room at the Church at Chichester, so some organised method of preserving documents existed by the middle of the thirteenth century. It was at about that date that the compilation of the earliest extant cartulary Liber Y (Ep. VI/I/I) was begun. Liber Y and the late fourteenth century cartularies were probably compiled as evidence in case of the loss of the originals, but in fact the compilation of the cartularies may have encouraged the neglect of the originals, which were no longer needed as legal evidence.
The religious changes of the sixteenth century meant the end of those masses for the dead and the chantries with which many of the documents were concerned. One cannot know the effect this may have had on the documents. It is usual to blame the Puritan troops of Sir William Waller, who sacked the Cathedral in 1642, for great depredations to all Cathedral property, including the muniments. However, at his visitation in 1616, Bishop Samual Harsnett found it necessary to ask "By whose default principally are your evidences wanting and lost ?" (Cap/I/12/3 pp. 267-271). There had obviously been some careless custodians of the records long before the Civil War.
When Canon William Clark (1696-1771) listed the "papers" in the "Chapter House Chest" and the "long box" he listed forty documents, of which nine are too modern to be of immediate relevance, fifteen are now part of Cap/I/17, and the rest are divided between Cap/I/15, Cap/III/1 and Cap/I/13.
In 1901, R. L. Poole reported to the Historical Manuscripts Commission that there were only twentyfive original charters remaining among the muniments of the diocese of Chichester. These twentyfive had been discovered "not long ago" in a drawer in the Canons' vestry, and removed to the Cathedral library. Poole added that it was difficult to be certain how many documents did remain, since they were neither in one depository nor under a single custody. He concluded from the various references to a chest, which housed the documents, that there had been at some time more than twentyfive originals, enough for a chest for them to be necessary.
The initial creation of Cap/I/17 as an archive group was done by C. E. Welch.
Language:  Latin

Arrangement: Arranged in chronological order


Supplementary information: The text of about a quarter of the documents has already appeared in print, mostly from the transcriptions in the cartularies (See W. D. Peckham, Sussex Record Society, Vol. 46, and H. Mayr Harting, The Acta of the Bishops of Chichester, 1075-1207.)
A calendar is Cap/I/51/6


Related information: About half of these documents are copied in the episcopal cartularies. See Ep/VI/1

Contents:
This collection and Cap/I/15 contain the oldest original documents relating to the Dean and Chapter of Chichester which have survived.
Contains eighty-six documents relating to the diocese of Chichester, plus five which seem to have strayed from the muniments of the Abbey of St. Peter, Gloucester (now Gloucester Cathedral). They range from the two original Anglo-Saxon charters to the seventeenth century. Only three of the documents are later than 1537. The documents are important for the fragments which they add to our knowledge, of medieval Chichester in particular. To give one example, from the information in these charters, and Cap/I/15, together with the Chichester City charters (catalogued by W. D. Peckham in Sussex Archaeological Collections Vol. 89) the list of mayors of Chichester has been extended and considerably revised, and a list of reeves of the city has been made.
In this catalogue the Anglo-Saxon documents have been fully transcribed and translated. All the legible details of the other documents have been given, but endorsements have only been noted if they contribute any further information. Seals have been described only if the device or legend are at least partially legible. Where a very approximate date has been assigned to a document the dating has been on palaeographical evidence, for want of any other.

Charter  Cap/I/17/1  ?689-?circa 1000 and circa 1700-1799

Only a fragment 7¼" x 5½" remains of this charter.

Related information: The missing text from the fragment has been supplied from the episcopal cartulary Liber B (Ep.VI/1/2) f. 17v. The scribe who copied this document into Liber B seems to have been a very careful and reliable copyist, although he omitted the Anglo Saxon bounds.

A part of a Saxon grant forged to support the estates of the church against Norman C[laims?] but probably an honest fraud [18th century hand ? William Clark]
Translation
God and our Lord Jesus Christ, with the Holy Ghost and Spirit, one God in three persons, reign eternally, without end. Because of this each one must consider to what extent his possessions are sufficient so that he may with transitory and fleeting things prepared for himself eternal rewards, since the end of this present life approaches everyone, willing or unwilling. Therefore, I Nunna, king of the South Saxons, for the love of God and the heavenly kingdom, with the free assent of the laity, grant in writing for ever to the venerable Bishop Eadberht, certain pieces of land, for his service and God's. I gladly assign them to him, 20 hides with all the appurtenances, the fields, woods, hills, pastures and fishponds, in the land called Hugabeorgum and aet dene. If, however, which God forbid, any of my successors attempt, to a small or great degree, to diminish or encroach on this my grant, let him know that he must render account before Christ, at the terrible judgement, unless he previously makes satisfactory amends. The land is seen to be bounded as follows :-
.......... along the dyke..... north over the road..... east end of Lavington dyke, from the dyke north..... and then east to the dangerous hill, from the hill to the sanctuary hill, from that hill east to stony..... to the triangle of land, from the triangle to the burial places, from the burial places to swordmen's hill and so along..... pasture and firstly where the soldiers brook and the bulls brook join on the north side of..... and the bulls hollow and the iron spring and the thicket dwelling and the yellow crown. Tibba's hollow. This charter was written in the year of the incarnation of the Lord 775, in the 2nd year of the indiction. I will show the eternal signs of those who witness and agree to this grant. First I Nunna, king, strengthen it with the sign of the cross of Christ [1st Col.] I Eadbrigh, bishop, confirm the land granted to me with the sign of the cross of Christ. I Ine have agreed and signed with my own hand. [2nd Col.] I Wattus, king, have agreed and signed. I Coenredus, king of the West Saxons, have confirmed this.
Endorsed: This is the charter by which Nunna, king, granted 20 hides at Hugubeorgum to Bishop Eadberht.
Interpretation
This charter is dated 775, but this must be an error, since this date agrees with neither the Indiction nor the witness list. To agree with the Indiction, the year could be 689 or 704 which have been suggested as possible dates. The date has also been given as 725.
Professor H.L. Rogers, McCaughey Professor of Early English Literature and Language at the University of Sidney, Australia, has examined Cap/I/17/1 and 2. He concludes that Cap/I/17/1 is a late copy or forgery, written c. 1000, for the following reasons:
(i) The handwriting, especially in the bounds, shows the influence of Carolingian miniscule.
(ii) Bounds in Anglo-Saxon do not usually occur until the 9th century. (see English Historical Documents Vol. I p. 344)
(iii) The proem and anathema are very elaborate for such an early date. (see F.M. Stenton, The Latin Charters of the Anglo-Saxon period, p. 34)
(iv) The variations in phrasing in the witness list are very different from the usual list of "Ego N consensi et subscripsi".
(v) Certain word forms in the Anglo-Saxon bounds may be indicative of a later date.

Translation
Our Lord Jesus Christ reigning and governing for ever. I, Oslac, leader of the South Saxons, for the redemption of my soul, gladly grant to the venerable church of St. Paul the Apostle a certain piece of land, with the two names Earneleach and Tielseora, with all things pertaining to it, fields and woods.
In the year after the Lord's Incarnation 780, this was done in the place which is called Siolesaei. I Oslac have signed this gift with my own hand.
I Gislhere, bishop, have agreed and signed. I Eadwulf have agreed and signed. I Aelbwald have agreed and signed. I Wermund have agreed and signed. I Beornnod have agreed and signed. I Werfrid have agreed and signed. I Wiohstan have agreed and signed. I Beffa have agreed and signed. I Bealdheard have agreed and signed. I Aedelmund have agreed and signed. I Beornheard have agreed and signed. I Beorhtnod have agreed and signed. And thus says all the royal dignity: if anyone, relying on tyrranous power shall attempt to invalidate this decree by force, let him know that he will have to render account before Christ at the terrible judgement of all men and take his place with Judas, betrayer of the Lord, in the lower Hell.
Endorsed: I Offa, by the gift of God, king of the Mercians, at the request of Wehthun, bishop of the South Saxons, will write my agreement to the above land and confirm it with the sign of the Lord's cross.
I Cynedryd the queen have agreed and signed. I Egcfrid king of the Mercians have agreed and signed. (Col. 2) I Brorda, prefect, have agreed and signed.
I Unwano, bishop, have agreed and signed.
This was lawfully done in the place which is called Yrtlingaburg.
Earnaleah et teleis ora.
(Upside down)
He did not take his prayer and pity away from me.
Oslac, leader of the South Saxons. R.R.
Interpretation
This charter is written in an extremely crude and heavy halfuncial script, which contrasts with the more practised miniscule of the endorsements.
It is possible that this piece of parchment was originally intended for use in a psalter. The ornamental "Deus" and the line "non amovit etc." suggest something of this sort. The confirmation can be dated to 787-796.
Professor H.L. Rogers considers this document to be almost certainly authentic, in spite of the unusual script. Certain of the proper names are given in variations which confirm the early date, and suggest a West Saxon origin for the document.

It appears to have been separated from its group at some time between the compiling of the rough catalogue by C. E. Welch in the early 1960s, and the compiling of this catalogue (February-May 1972). It was found at the bottom of a box of Chapter Miscellenea (Cap/I/10).

Note: This document appears to have been used at some time in the binding of a book, as there are regular folds and needle holes in it, and some traces of cord remaining. The document was marked Ep 1/6, but it seems unlikely that it had any connection with the present Ep 1/6, which is not a bound volume. It was found with Cap/1/17, although it seems that it was not with this group when C. E. Welch made a rough catalogue of the documents in the early 1960s. It has been included in Cap/I/17, which is probably its place, since the Dean and Chapter did hold land in the area of Buckinghamshire mentioned.

Until his death in 1852, J.B. Freeland was both Chapter Clerk and the Commissioners' local agent, and was therefore involved in much correspondence. The letter books consist of press copies of the Chapter Clerk's out-letters.

542 pp.

Contents:
pp.i-xxiii, index

LEASES  Cap/III/6  1584-1935

Arrangement: The sorting of these leases into their respective sites proved more difficult than for other groups of leases in the capitular records because although there were clearly-defined site numbers, the subdivision of properties, particularly in what is now Vicars Close, greatly confused the descriptions, rents and other details of the leases normally relied on to identify a particular site. Consequently the Vicars Choral's own lists of properties (the numbers of which were changed in the early 19th cent.) are given here, followed by a list of surviving documents. The lists are sometimes very confused within themselves, as the clerks made frequent mistakes in numbering. The figure after Cap/III/6/ does not therefore represent a site number, which is indicated further on in the catalogue entry.

LEASES  Cap/IV/6  [n.d.]

Arrangement: The site numbers were changed c.1749, but during the last war Dr. Elsbeth Jaffé of the Warburg Institute compiled notes on some of the properties and arranged them according to the former site numbers first allocated by the Hospital's clerk.
Since she bundled the documents very carefully herself, often putting a calendar with the bundle, or additional notes, they have been catalogued here without numbers or dates of the documents. The figure after Cap/IV/6 represents the Hospital's original site number which Dr. Jaffé used and elaborated by means of a decimal system to indicate the subdivisions.


Supplementary information: Jaffés notes are now Cap/IV/10/1 and there the readers will find a draft calendar of the leases.


Related information: Most of the leases are registered in Cap/IV/5.
