Clergy of the Church of England Database

From 1540 to 1835, the Church of England was one of Britain's largest employers and most influential institutions. Since its initial launch in 1999, the Clergy Church of England Database (CCEd) has offered historians and scholars (both academic and amateur) a robust research tool that enables them to search clerical records for more than "155,000 individual clerics or schoolteachers" from over fifty different archives in England and Wales. Visitors can search the database by name and fields such as diocese, location, and date range, and they can browse people, locations, and bishops according to diocese as well. For new users, CCEd provides an extensive section on how to use the database, including information on interpreting career narratives. The helpful reference section contains bibliographies, lists of bishops and locations, and a glossary, and interested readers may also want to check out this resource's blog for updates and its journal for peer-reviewed articles and other research drawing on CCEd. Funded by grants from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, CCEd is directed by Arthur Burns at King's College London, Kenneth Fincham at the University of Kent, and Stephen Taylor at Durham University.
