Archdeacon of Westmorland and Furness

The Archdeacon of Westmorland and Furness is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of Carlisle.[1] As such he or she is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy [2] within its four rural deaneries: Barrow, Windermere, Kendal and Furness.[3]

The archdeaconry of Westmorland was erected by Order-in-Council of 10 August 1847 from the Archdeaconry of Richmond,[4] but that Order did not come into effect until Hugh Percy (Bishop of Carlisle) died on 5 February 1856 (because he did not consent to the changes to his diocese). The Archdeaconry of Furness was erected by further Order-in-Council in 1884; they were subsequently merged to form the current archdeaconry of Westmorland and Furness. The incumbent is Vernon Ross.

Archdeacons of Westmorland and of Westmorland and FurnessEdit

In 1959, Furness archdeaconry was merged into Westmorland archdeaconry and the latter was renamed as "Westmorland and Furness".

Archdeacons of FurnessEdit

The archdeaconry (occasionally called Barrow-in-Furness) was created by Order-in-Council on 27 May 1884.[26]
On 7 August 1959, Furness archdeaconry was dissolved and its territory added to the Westmorland archdeaconry, which was renamed "Westmorland and Furness".[34]
