Review in Sussex Notes and Queries, August 1929:
Mr. MacLeod and the Record Society are to be congratulated upon the issue of this volume, the Index of which includes the Licenses (1731-1774) in Vol. xxxii, also edited by Mr. MacLeod.
It continues the great work begun by Mr. Dunkin in his life-time of printing all the Sussex Marriage Licenses from the time of Queen Elizabeth down to 1837, which now comprise eight of the Record Society's volumes. These records are invaluable for genealogical purposes, and in some respects these later volumes are of more general interest than those of earlier dates. It is not every family that can connect up with the 16th and 17th centuries, but there must be few old West Sussex families that cannot find someone of their name in this present volume.

The Organs and Organists of Chichester Cathedral, by Nicholas Plumley, published 1 June 1988 (booklet, 64 pp., Chichester: Phillimore & Co. Ltd., ISBN-10: 0850336643 & ISBN-13: 9780850336641) accessible at: W.S.R.O. [Lib 9999] & West Sussex Libraries
Abstract:
The book details the history of three organs, and provides a complete account of the organists, warts and all. Chichester has had its quota of eccentrics, but, equally, its record of distinguished musicians is evident. No matter how good the instrument, its sensitive and liturgical use depends on the organist's understanding of the role of the music within worship.

Abstract:
The Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity, otherwise called Chichester Cathedral, is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Chichester. It is located in Chichester, in Sussex, England. It was founded as a cathedral in 1075, when the seat of the bishop was moved from Selsey.hichester Cathedral has fine architecture in both the Norman and the Gothic styles, and has been called by the architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner "the most typical English Cathedral".Despite this, Chichester has two architectural features that are unique among England's medieval cathedrals-a free-standing medieval bell tower (or campanile) and double aisles.The cathedral contains two rare medieval sculptures, and many modern art works including tapestries, stained glass and sculpture, many of these commissioned by Dean Hussey.The spire of Chichester Cathedral, rising above its green copper roof, can be seen for many miles across the flat meadows of West Sussex and is a landmark for sailors, Chichester being one of only two medieval English cathedrals that is visible from the sea, the other being its near neighbour, Portsmouth Cathedral.

The Sermons of Henry King, 1592-1669, Bishop of Chichester, edited by Mary Hobbs, published 17 July 1992 (pamphlet, 400 pp., Scolar Press, ISBN-10: 0859678393 & ISBN-13: 9780859678391) accessible at: W.S.R.O. [Lib 11868][Lib 12052] & West Sussex Libraries
Abstract:
The poems of Henry King, friend of John Donne and executor of his will, were edited in 1965, but his sermons, fine examples of 17th century prose, which span the period from the reign of James I to that of Charles II, have never been reprinted. The Sermons of Henry King makes their text available in the original spelling (with some editing of Greek and Latin). Only 21 survive, 11 of which were published in 1628 as "An Exposition upon the Lords Prayer". King used language lucidly, persuasively, and without the straining of conceits found in many sermon writers of the period. At his best, he has few equals for grace of structure, sweetness of sound, elegiac intensity of mood, and occasional dry wit. His prose is also of importance for a fuller understanding of his poetry, presenting new evidence for the dating and canon of his poems, his methods of composition, and his reading. The sermons offer fresh insights into the reign of Charles I, the Civil War, Interregnum, and Restoration in King's firsthand accounts and assessments of events and characters. His theological importance is beginning to be acknowledged in the current exploration of the "middle" position between Arminian and Puritan in the 17th century Church of England: not a notable original thinker, he can be seen to be a thoroughly representative moderate Calvinist, forced nearer as a Royalist to the Arminian position by the political events of the late 1630s.

Abstract:
Churches were not always regarded with the respect that we usually give them today, and from bishops' surveys of their dioceses we can learn a great deal about the treatment of parish churches in the past, and the attitudes that prevailed to their furniture and fittings.
Thomas Bowers's survey of the Chichester diocese has been cited and studied on a number of occasions in the past, but this is the first time that an edition of the entire record has been published. The work was out carried parish by parish in the summer of 1724, shortly before the bishop's death. The enquiries were unusually wide ranging. Not only do they provide a detailed picture of each building and its fittings; but they also cover such topics as the population of the parish, the strength of Nonconformity and Roman Catholicism, and provide details of patronage and parochial charities. In this edition this information has been amplified in the notes and in a substantial critical introduction; and missing information has been gathered from other sources, such as Archbishop Wake's 1717 visitation of Sussex parishes outside the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Chichester, and from the recently discovered diocesan valuation carried out in 1725 at the instigation of Bishop Waddington, Bowers's successor. Further information on Nonconformity is provided by the inclusion of the important Evans List of 1717. To extend the picture into the previous century, the volume also includes a survey from 1686 and 1687, which gives extensive information on the fabric and fittings of the parish churches throughout the diocese.
Overall, the volume describes the state of an eighteenth century diocese in a depth and comprehensiveness that will be hard to match elsewhere-and which helps us to understand the widespread rebuilding of churches a century later. It will be an indispensable source for anyone studying the history of a Sussex parish, and equally essential for students of the architectural, religious, demographic and social history of the county.

Saint Richard of Chichester: The sources for his life, edited by David Jones, published December 1995 (vol. 79, 279 pp., Sussex Record Society, ISBN-10: 0854450408 & ISBN-13: 9780854450404) accessible at: W.S.R.O. [Lib 13012][Lib 13830][Lib 17199] & The Keep [LIB/500456][Lib/507862]   View Online
Abstract:
St. Richard is one of the most attractive English saints-and it is surprising that the early sources that tell his story have been inaccessible for so long. In this volume David Jones brings them together: the first English translation of the Life written by Richard's friend and disciple, Ralph Bocking; the original Latin text (which has not appeared in print since 1675); the first publication of Cardinal Odo of Chateauroux's sermon, which is based on the lost canonisation archive; the first translation of the Statutes by which Richard governed his diocese; and his will. In addition, a picture of Richard's official acts and journeys has been compiled-from a bewildering range of obscure sources - providing a valuable conspectus of the life and activity of a mediaeval English bishop. The introduction weaves all these threads together to provide the rounded portrait.
A fascinating and attractive personality emerges. We see a major religious leader, who was fully prepared to clash head on with his King, and who set out to reform the moral and spiritual life of his diocese. We see a charismatic figure, a man of great personal holiness, whose personal affection for his followers also demanded the highest moral standards from them. We see a masterly administrator, who undertook major work on Chichester Cathedral-and who knew exactly how to extract the funds to do it.
This volume will be indispensable for anyone with an interest in, or affection for, St. Richard-and essential for students of English mediaeval and religious history and history of the county of Sussex.

Mapping the limestone decay and decay processes on the external limestone of Chichester Cathedral, a structure stemming from the period circa 1076-1090, by Anthony A., 2006 at Portsmouth University (Ph.D. thesis)
Abstract:
Chichester Cathedral, the construction of which commenced between 1076- 90, within the rural setting of Sussex, is composed of an eclectic mix of limestones and some sandstones, which have undergone continued replacement over the lifetime of the building due to surface decay and failure. The purpose of this study was to map and record the decay exhibited on a southern aspect of the building, which was due for restoration. In addition a simple study was also undertaken on the early stone still existing from the first building phase from other areas of the building and within differing environments and which confirmed that decay forms commenced with a change in limestone type used, particularly in this case from the Quarr stone to the more micro porous Caen and similar limestones. Thus indicating porosity as a factor in weathering. Laboratory analysis of samples was not available for this study so the majority of observations and recordings were made on site. A study of the climate of the region in chapter 2, indicated that although rainfall for the region was low, humidity was relatively consistent and within the upper range (60-90 per cent). Although wind direction was mainly from the southwest, thereby removing any significant pollutants, the combination of low S02 and high humidity would fit in with the accepted environment for absorption of atmospheric salts and associated crystallisation, hydration pressure and expansion, leading to decay. Micro-climate analysis of an area of the southern side also confirmed that the moisture content across the stone face was also conSistently high and thus an indicator of a salt mobilisation and hydration environment. Chapter 3, which considers the building phases and materials used throughout the building history of the Cathedral, also mapped an emerging pattern of stone life for the various parts of the Cathedral, which tends to fit in with the theory that the lithology of the same stone type may playa significant factor inIt is well established that atmospheric pollution is a major contributor to stone decay but no major polluting industrial base has ever existed within the area of Chichester, which was primarily an agricultural centre (historically a 'Staple Town'). It was necessary therefore to establish the possible historic forms of industry that may have contributed in some way to atmospheric pollution thereby enabling the mapping of resultant pollution levels over time. The analysis of this industry in chapter 4 has indicated that as expected the levels of S02 were so low as to be almost inSignificant until the arrival of wide spread coal use, and then even then they were very low. The amount may be significant, however, when combined with high relative humidity. The actual mapping and main photographic analysis of surface conditions across three height ranges is undertaken and described in chapter 5. In a number of cases, a relationship between black crusting and surface loss could not be established, although, it was apparent that scaling and surface loss of the sample areas was high. It became significant that decay was tending to emanate from the lime mortar joints in a number of locations and situations. This also became evident when looked for in other regions of the structure, for example the north side of the Bell Tower, which had started to decay within a forty-year period of restoration and is covered in chapter 6. Various forms of mechanical breakdown were established but this research did not enable any form of biological decay analysis to be undertaken. the durability of samples.

The Register of Edward Story, bishop of Chichester 1478-1503, edited by Janet Stevenson, published 21 April 2016 (365 pp., Canterbury & York Society, ISBN-10: 090723979X & ISBN-13: 9780907239796)
Abstract:
Edward Story, fellow of Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, and later master of Michaelhouse, was also, in two terms as chancellor, a university administrator. But it was as a royal servant that he rose to eminence from about 1460 to servesucceeding monarchs with the impartial efficiency of a career civil servant. Bishop of Carlisle from 1468, he was translated in 1478 to Chichester, which, although conterminous with the county of Sussex, contained several exemptjurisdictions, notably the archbishop of Canterbury's deanery of South Malling. The register begins with Story's primary visitation of his diocese. The full record reveals both the shortcomings of the cathedral chapter and of those religious houses subject to episcopal jurisdiction. Besides purely diocesan matters such as ordinations, collations and institutions, clerical indiscipline and the exercise of his judicial authority, the extraordinary actions required of the bishop are reflected not only in reports of local suspicions of heresy, but also in matters of national importance such as summonses to convocation, clerical taxation, natural disasters such as plague, and external threats to the kingdom. The documents are presented here with full notes and introduction.

Abstract:
In April 1604, Robert Johnson, rector of West Chiltington, had a difficult Sunday. His brother Henry's wife, 'having a child in her arms' dumped it near the rector's seat while her husband shouted, 'Here is your child; take it, for it is none of mine' - and left. Robert's response was to bring an action for defamation, and members of the congregation were called to testify. Their eye-witness accounts of the event are recorded in the deposition books of the bishop of Chichester's consistory court ¬along with those from hundreds of other cases heard in the 16th and 17th centuries. The depositions of such courts provide a unique record in describing such incidents which figure nowhere else in local or national archives. The consistory court proceedings rarely involved major events of the great or even the good: they focused on disputes between individuals over relatively mundane matters, principally matrimonial disagreements, the making of wills and the collecting of tithes - and of course defamation. But by their faithful recording of the witnesses' statements they have preserved a rich legacy of minor but often unique incidents which paint a picture of everyday life (and often its seamier side) in rural Sussex.
The stories they tell can be unexpected, often entertaining, and sometimes puzzling. Is there some recorded naval history behind the case of Agnes Daniell of Selsey, accused of bearing 'barters' by her profligacy with 'men of war'? Elsewhere they can tell of social tensions - evidenced by the road rage spat between James Pellett, vicar of Madehurst, and Richard Hobbes, one of the local gentry, who demanded: 'God's blood or God's wounds, will thou not give way: I am a better man than thou' - to which the vicar retorted that Hobbes 'not long before was but a capmaker.' Many of the cases reveal the serious impact of local gossip, particularly that involving the reputation of women. Agnes Nashe of Middleton understandably contested rumours that after a dubious sojourn in London she had 'burned' local Sussex men with venereal disease.
Thomas Herold of Pulborough reacted to a different kind of gossip when a neighbour asserted that 'he was a witch and did bewitch her husband's cattle'.
These nuggets of local material can also provide serious contributions in major historical areas - particularly in documenting farming activities. A dispute about tithe in Kirdford furnishes one of the earliest accounts of 'devonshiring' by which Wealden heathland was burnt and grubbed to produce improved agricultural land. Another tithe dispute in Oving describes how sluices were built to prevent tidal overflow from ruining the hay on the marshland.
While records of this period in other archives reflect the activities of the rich and owners of property - or the misdeeds of the seriously criminal - those of the church courts depict something much closer to the everyday life of the lower classes. Although their stories have survived in the archives of many English dioceses, they have not yet been fully exploited by historians: the secretary hand of the clerks does not make for easy reading and the patches of formulaic Latin can seem forbidding. But the difficulties can be overcome; the stories that emerge can be moving and entertaining; and above all they help us to hear the words of ordinary people and to see life through their eyes four centuries later. This book enables us to share the range of their experiences by publishing all the depositions from a register that covers the years 1603 to 1608. Perhaps these accounts of everyday life in rural Sussex may encourage others to mine such records in this county and beyond.

Abstract:
This volume provides transcriptions of church surveys conducted within the Archdeaconry of Chichester in the early seventeenth century, covering most of what is now deemed to be West Sussex. The first survey was commissioned by Archbishop John Whitgift in 1602 and was part of a national campaign. The survey of 1610 was a result of the primary visitation of Bishop Samuel Harsnett, while that of 1636 was under the auspices of Bishop Richard Montagu, but almost certainly connected with the Metropolitical Visitation of Archbishop William Laud of 1635. These surveys provide valuable evidence of the struggle by clergy, churchwardens and lay patrons to maintain the basic fabric of their churches and chapels, while also ensuring that the buildings were fit places for worship according to the standards being set for the times. The material may be usefully compared with the results of similar surveys conducted in 1686 and 1724, also published by the Sussex Record Society (Volume 78).
