The Archdeacon of Cleveland is a senior ecclesiastical officer of an archdeaconry, or subdivision, of the Church of England Diocese of York[1] in the Province of York. The Archdeaconry of Cleveland stretches west from Thirsk, north to Middlesbrough, east to Whitby and south to Pickering. It has a varied geography, including the southern parts of the conurbation of Teesside and the open moors of the North York Moors National Park.

History[edit]

Archdeacons occurred in the Diocese of York before 1093; before 1128, there were five serving simultaneously – probably each in their own area, but none occurs with a territorial title before 1133.[2] The title Archdeacon of Cleveland is first recorded before 1174 with Ralph, Archdeacon of Cleveland.[3] Of the five archdeaconries, Cleveland is one of three which has never split from York diocese.

People[edit]

The archdeaconry is led by the Area Bishop of Whitby, Paul Ferguson[4] and by the Archdeacon of Cleveland, currently vacant since Ferguson's consecration;[5] during the vacancy, Canon Richard Rowling is the acting archdeacon.[6]

Organization[edit]

In common with other archdeaconries, Cleveland is further subdivided into deaneries:

  • Guisborough
  • Middlesbrough
  • Mowbray
  • Northern Ryedale
  • Stokesley
  • Whitby

List of archdeacons[edit]

Some archdeacons without territorial titles are recorded from around the time of Thomas of Bayeux; see Archdeacon of York.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Hugh does not occur with the title Archdeacon of Cleveland; rather his territory can be deduced.
