The Clergy of the Church of England Database (CCEd) is a collaborative project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and bringing together scholars from King's College London, the University of Kent at Canterbury and the University of Reading. Its objective is to create a relational database documenting the careers of all Church of England clergymen between 1540 and 1835.

This website not only gives access to the Database, but also provides a range of supporting materials about the Church and its clergy. It is recommended that anyone consulting the Database for the first time read the Help for first-time users.

Content of the Database

This website is a developing resource. Much of the data that has been collected is not yet available via the public website. To find out what diocese and periods are covered, go to Current content of the Database. Please note, however, that material is continually being added; upgrades every two months usually add at least 2,000 new names and new locations. The accompanying web resources are also added to on a regular basis.

Additional material, provided by users of the Database, is also added where appropriate. If you have such material, we encourage you to contact the Project Office with details. We also encourage submissions to our on-line journal, CCEd Research Online .
