So the archdeacon was also rector of St Andrew's Church, Farnham and used Farnham as a centre from which to administer the churches in the area.[2] From 1927 it was separated from the diocese of Winchester and became the diocese of Guildford. On 17 August 1928, the archdeaconry of Dorking was formed out of the archdeaconry of Surrey by Order in Council.[3]
