Abstract

Stephen Werronen will discuss the importance of urban rents for the Ripon Minster fabric wardens and how this income was spent. Elizabeth Rhodes will examine how the parish church of Holy Trinity, St Andrews, dealt with the assets it had acquired chiefly from bequests establishing chantries and anniversary masses. Eleanor Warren will be discussing the endowments belonging to the chapel of St Mary and the Holy Angels, which consisted of eleven parish churches, some of which had very significant Anglo-Saxon rites, and will be looking at the archbishop’s patronage, gift, and protection.
