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.

2006-10-23: Details of October 2006 upgrade

The CCEd was upgraded on 23 October 2006. Since the last upgrade in August, linkage has continued for the following dioceses: (i) Bath and Wells for the period 1700–1800; (ii) Bristol for the period 1660–1750; (iii) Chester for the period 1760–1835; (iv) Ely for the periods 1540–1646 and 1760–1835; (v) Lichfield for the period 1660–1760; (vi) Lincoln for the period 1750–1835; (vii) Oxford for the period 1660–1835; (viii) Salisbury for the period 1660–1760. The website materials remain much the same as in August, except that some additions have been made to the location lists, particularly for the diocese of Chester. The next upgrade is scheduled to take place in December. Full details of Database content can be found at:

2006-08-14: New on-line journal: ‘CCEd Research On-line’

The Project is pleased to announce that a new addition to the website that will be launched over the coming months: ‘CCEd Research On-line’. The aim of this initiative is to provide a forum, an on-line journal, for the publication of notes and articles that either draw on the materials made available by CCEd or relate in some ways to the concerns of the Project. We are pleased to announce that the first article – W. J. Sheils on ‘The bishops and their dioceses: reform of visitation in the anglican church c.1680–c.1760’ – will appear as part of the October upgrade of the website. We regret that, however, that the list of diocesan chancellors, edited by Andrew Foster and John Hawkins, has been further delayed. The Project Directors, who will act as the editors of CCEd Research On-line, welcome the submission of articles, either short or long, from anyone interested in contributing to the discussion of the Church of England and its clergy in the period between the Reformation and the mid-nineteenth century. They are also happy to discuss ideas for articles with prospective authors. All contributions will be peer reviewed, and their publication will be announced on this News page at each upgrade of CCEd. Copyright will remain with the contributors.

2006-08-14: New publication for genealogists

Details of this and other similar publications are available from the Society of Genealogists Enterprises Ltd., 14 Charterhouse Buildings, Goswell Road, London. EC1M 7BA, and online at:

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 On-line.
