AdminHistoryHistorical Background
The Diocese of St Albans was established in 1877 by vitue of an Order in Council of 30th April 1877, which implemented the terms of the Bishopric of St Albans Act 1875 (38 & 39 Vict. c34).
Formation of the Diocese: Hertfordshire & Essex
By the terms of this Act and Order in Council, the whole of the counties of Essex and Hertfordshire were removed from the Diocese of Rochester and formed into the Diocese of St Albans (see the Introduction to the inventory of the records of the Archdeaconry of St Albans ref. ASA for notes on the removal of Hertfordshire from the Diocese of London to the Diocese of Rochester).
Formation of the Diocese: Hertfordshire & Bedfordshire
In 1914, by an Order in Council of 21&sups;t January, made in pursuance of the Bishoprics of Sheffield, Chelmsford and the County of Suffolk Act 1913 (34 Geo V, c36), a new Diocese of Chelmsford was formed and Essex and Kent north of the Thames were removed from the Diocese of St Albans to the new diocese. By a further Order in Council of 30th March 1914 the Archdeaconry of Bedford which comprises the county of Bedfordshire was transferred from the Diocese of Ely to that of St Albans.
Cathedral
The former Abbey Church of St Albans, from the Dissolution of the Monasteries until 1877 the parish and municipal church of the town, was made the Cathedral of the new see. The Bishopric of St Albans Act provided for a Dean and Chapter but the first Dean was not appointed until 1900. As eary as 1539 St Albans might have become a cathedral city and centre of a see in Hertfordshire. Amongst the several proposals for ecclesiastical reorganisation after the Dissolution of the Monasteries there was such a proposal, which was not, however, translated into action.
Boundary changes
The parish of Nettleden, a part of the administrative county of Buckinghamshire until 1895 and a chapelry of Pitstone in the Archdeaconry of Buckingham and Diocese of Oxford until 1877, was included in the new diocese together with that part of the county of Kent north of the Thames, lying in the parish of North Woolwich (until the removal of Essex from the Diocese).
The chapelry of Flaunden, Hertfordshire, for many years a chapel of ease to the mother church of Hemel Hempstead was, in 1876, consolidated with the benefice of Latimer and removed to the Diocese of Oxford.
Holwell, formerly in Bedfordshire and the Diocese of Ely, was transferred to Hertfordshire in 1897, but remained in the Archdeaconry of Bedford and Diocese of Ely until 1914.
Parts of the parishes of Studham and Caddington were in Hertfordshire and parts in Bedfordshire, and the whole of the parishes were, ecclesiastically, in the Diocese of Ely until 1914.
The parish of Kensworth was a detached part of Hertfordshire until 1897 when it was transferred to Bedfordshire, but from 1877 it has always been in the Diocese of St Albans.
ArrangementArrangement of the records
The current arrangement of the records is a re-arrangement and revision of the classification scheme applied when the records were first catalogued some years ago. The earlier deposits of records consisted primarily of faculties, title deeds and other records of a purely administrative nature deposited by the Diocesan Registry, and this was reflected in the classification scheme then applied.
In light of the transfer of large deposits of records from the various diocesan boards and committees which collectively make up Diocesan Office in the 1990s (most notably D/Acc 607, 975 and 976), it was found that this scheme was not flexible enough to allow for the addition of new series within it, without imposing a structure on the records which did not adequately reflect the actual structure and workings of these boards and committee within the Diocese. It was also found that many clearly different and distinct series of records had been listed together as one, when in fact their importance warranted them being listed separately, and their significance had thereby been dissipated as the result (for instance, Orders made under the Pastoral Measures 1968 and 1983, which had previously been listed together with title deeds, or in a miscellaneous section of other unclassified documents, despite their importance).
In addition, since the diocesan records are a "living" archive group in the sense that many documents are still required by the Diocesan Registry for legal purposes, and new additions are regularly deposited by the Diocese, some series, particularly the title deeds, bore little or no relation to what was listed in the catalogue when it was first drawn up over 20 years ago. The current catalogue is a complete revision of those sections and takes into account those records which have been permanently returned to the Registry and are no longer available to the public for consultation. Where this is the case in the future (ie, particularly in the case of the sale of older benefice houses and other real property which has involved the surrender of the deeds to the purchaser), steps will be taken to photocopy any outgoing documents to ensure that they remain available to searchers, at least in some form.
The new classification scheme has attempted to compensate for the deficiencies listed above, and introduce a greater degree of flexibility to allow for the addition of records of new boards and committee as they are created. It has also tried to reflect the changes which have taken place within the structures of diocesan administration, such as the transfer to synodical government in 1969/1970.
One final note: whereas the majority of records previously catalogued as DSA and have now been re-catalogued with the new DS prefix, certain series which have been cited as references in various published works for some time have retained their old DSA references. These include Tithe Maps (for which see DSA4), Bishops' Transcripts of parish registers (see DSA3/2 and DSA3/3, and Terriers (see DSA1/10). Faculty papers (see DSA2/1), which number some several hundred thousand separate documents, had also not been incorporated in this revised catalogue, but are now being gradually inputted. Cross-references are made to these records throughout this catalogue where appropriate.
