9781784421373: Parsonages (Shire Library)

From the Middle Ages to the present day, parsonages--vicarages, rectories, and later manses, presbyteries, and chapel houses--have been among the most significant dwellings in every kind of British community. Their roles have been wide and varied. Architecturally important, and ranging from medieval vernacular buildings to the bespoke house designs of leading architects of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, to the more modest homes of today's clergy, parsonages are important not only as buildings but for the part they--and their occupants--have played in the life of local communities, and in their links with the wider world. The parsonage, a hub of activity and connection, a place of change and continuity, provides fascinating historical insights both general and local. This study draws on the evidence of architecture, official documents, private records, literary accounts, and contemporary and modern images to build a picture of parsonages and their occupants. It includes a section on tracing the history of a parsonage.

About the Author:

Dr. Kate Tiller is Reader Emerita in English Local History at the University of Oxford, a Fellow of Kellogg College, and a visiting Fellow in English Local History at the University of Leicester. She has a longstanding interest in the religious and social history of local communities on which she has taught and published extensively. She was born in a Fenland Vicarage built in 1857.

Review:

Parsonages packs a lot in across six chronological chapters, yet remains highly accessible. Indeed, it is an excellent book for anyone new to the topic. There is a brief explanation of what might first appear to be bewildering terms and phases: the distinction between a rectory and vicarage, appropriated livings, Tithe Commutation etc. There are over 70 colour illustrations - almost one per page - all of which provide helpful exemplars. Moreover, this book can help those whose appetites have been whetted by offering practical advice for research. -- Sarah Rose The Local Historian Dr Tiller's book is an admirable brief survey of these important buildings and their occupants, from early times until the present day. -- Nicholas Orme Church Times

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the middle ages to the present day the houses of local clergy - parsonages, vicarages and rectories - have been among the most significant buildings in parishes throughout England. Architecturally some of the best and most fully documented domestic buildings, their history is that of the small and medium sized house, from medieval vernacular to the bespoke designs of leading Victorian architects and the more modest homes of today s clergy. The lives lived in the parsonage, factual and fictional (from Austen to Trollope and the televised struggles of Rev in London s East End in the 2010s) reveal not just a building, but a hub of spiritual and secular activity, at the heart of local life and linking it to wider, national history. In this engaging introduction, Kate Tiller brings together the architectural and social histories of the parsonage, drawing on the evidence of buildings, archival and literary accounts, and contemporary and modern images, to depict parsonages, their occupants and how their histories may be traced.
