BishopsEdit

The diocesan Archbishop of York is primarily supported by three suffragan bishops: the Bishops of Hull (founded 1891), of Whitby (founded 1923) and of Selby (founded 1939). While not operating a formal area scheme, each suffragan takes informal responsibility for one archdeaconry (East Riding, Cleveland and York respectively). Alternative episcopal oversight (for parishes in the diocese who reject the ministry of priests who are women) is provided by the provincial episcopal visitor (PEV) the Bishop suffragan of Beverley; unlike in most dioceses, Beverley does not need to be licensed as an honorary assistant bishop since he is a suffragan in the diocese.

There are six retired honorary assistant bishops licensed in the diocese:

David James, retired Bishop of Bradford[10] and Martin Wallace, retired Bishop suffragan of Selby,[11] live in Beverley and Bridlington respectively, but there is no evidence that either has been licensed as an honorary assistant bishop.

HistoryEdit

In 1541, the archdeanery of Richmond, North Yorkshire, which included part of the Yorkshire Dales, North Lancashire (including Furness), the southern part of Westmorland and the ward of Allerdale above Derwent in Cumberland, became part of the new Diocese of Chester. (These areas later became parts of other dioceses.)

In 1836 the western part (corresponding broadly to the West Riding) was split into the Ripon diocese, which was later subdivided into the dioceses of Ripon and Leeds, Bradford, and Wakefield and now constitutes most of the Diocese of Leeds. In 1884 Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire became part of the new Diocese of Southwell, from which Derbyshire was split off again in 1927 to form the Diocese of Derby. In 1914 the Diocese of Sheffield, (covering South Yorkshire), was split off as an independent diocese.

David Butterfield resigned as Archdeacon of the East Riding on 26 May 2014 in order to be collated as "Archdeacon for Generous Giving and Stewardship" that 23 June,[12] a position he held until he retired on 1 July 2017.[13]
