paragraphs: Greater tithes; Act of Parliament[edit]

The paragraph headed Greater Tithes is not accurate. In any case the subject is better covered on the Tithe page see Tithe and the inaccurate statements about parsons should be left to (a revised and corrected) Parson page.Eddaido (talk) 01:51, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Act of Parliament. Apart from its inaccuracy is this paragraph even necessary?Eddaido (talk) 01:51, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Wales[edit]

Was the situation in Wales similar to that in England from Tudor times to 1920?--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 16:29, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Sons of vicars[edit]

Removed "Many English men of cultural importance started life as the educated but impoverished son of a vicar: Sir Francis Drake, Thomas Hobbes, John Henley, John Lightfoot, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Adam Sedgwick, Cecil Rhodes, Nassau William Senior, and Charles Kingsley being examples drawn from various intellectual fields. Robert Herrick was himself a vicar." It is doubtful that selecting some of these is particularly useful and it is a matter of chance whether their fathers were vicars or holders of some other title.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 10:46, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Substitute[edit]

"Vicar" derives from the Latin "vicarius" meaning a substitute. (quote from lead) So a vicar is / was a substitute for what? Eddaido (talk) 01:05, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

A vicar was a substitute for a rector. The roles were the same but the source of payment different. Now there's no real difference between the two. ChapterandVerse (talk) 14:06, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
But that is tosh, where did you get that idea for the meaning of vicar? Eddaido (talk) 14:13, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
