The Archdeacon of Leicester is a senior ecclesiastical officer in the Church of England.

History[edit]

The first archdeacon of Leicester is recorded before 1092 – around the time when archdeacons were first appointed across England – in the Diocese of Lincoln. He was one of eight archdeacons appointed by the bishop: Lincoln, Huntingdon, Northampton, Oxford, Buckingham, Bedford and Stow.

In the Victorian era reforms, the archdeaconry became part of Peterborough diocese on 1 May 1839[1][2] and, on 12 November 1926, the modern Diocese of Leicester was founded from Leicester and Loughborough archdeaconries and part of the archdeaconry of Northampton.[3]
