The Archdeacon of the East Riding is a senior ecclesiastical officer of an archdeaconry, or subdivision, of the Church of England Diocese of York in the Province of York. It is named for the East Riding of Yorkshire and consists of the eight rural deaneries of Beverley, Bridlington, Harthill, Howden, Hull, North Holderness, Scarborough and South Holderness.

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.[1] The title Archdeacon of the East Riding is first recorded before 1133 with William FitzHerbert, Archdeacon of the East Riding (later Archbishop of York).[2] Of the five archdeaconries, East Riding is one of three which has never split from York diocese.

The archdeaconry is vacant since the resignation of David Butterfield; the acting archdeacon is retired archdeacon Peter Harrison;[3] the suffragan Bishop of Hull exercises episcopal oversight over the archdeaconry.
