The Archdeacon of Cleveland is a senior ecclesiastical officer of an archdeaconry, or subdivision, of the Church of England Diocese of York[1] in the Province of York. The Archdeaconry of Cleveland stretches west from Thirsk, north to Middlesbrough, east to Whitby and south to Pickering. It has a varied geography, including the southern parts of the conurbation of Teesside and the open moors of the North York Moors National Park.

History

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.[2] The title Archdeacon of Cleveland is first recorded before 1174 with Ralph, Archdeacon of Cleveland.[3] Of the five archdeaconries, Cleveland is one of three which has never split from York diocese.

People

The archdeaconry is led by the area Bishop of Whitby, Paul Ferguson[4] and by the Archdeacon of Cleveland, Samantha Rushton since 6 May 2015.[5]

Organization

In common with other archdeaconries, Cleveland is further subdivided into deaneries:

  • Guisborough
  • Middlesbrough
  • Mowbray
  • Northern Ryedale
  • Stokesley
  • Whitby

List of archdeacons

Some archdeacons without territorial titles are recorded from around the time of Thomas of Bayeux; see Archdeacon of York.

Notes

  1. ^ Hugh does not occur with the title Archdeacon of Cleveland; rather his territory can be deduced.
