The Archdeacon of Man (sometimes incorrectly referred to as Archdeacon of the Isle of Man) is a senior cleric second only to the Bishop of Sodor and Man in the Anglican Diocese of Sodor and Man (which comprises the Isle of Man). This is unusual, as in the Church of England, Deans are usually the senior priests of the diocese. In Sodor and Man, however, the role of the Dean was fulfilled by the Bishop for many years, until becoming distinct again only in October 2011. According to advice given by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Mann, the Archdeacon "is the bishop's second in command", and this seniority is reflected e.g. on Tynwald Day in the Order of the Procession, and by the fact that until 1919 the Archdeacon of Man was an ex officio member of the Legislative Council.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Until 1814, Mylrea was rector of Ballaugh rather than of Andreas (which was customarily attached to the archdeaconry since the 16th century) because the rectors of Andreas (Lord Charles Murray-Aynsley and George Murray) were absent from the island.
