Although the detail of information returned varies from Diocese to Diocese, it a comprehensive listing, including a total of 27 Dioceses.

Oxford Men and Their Colleges (1880-1892) Oxford Men and Their Colleges (1880-1892)

Ref: 1370
ISBN:
TWO VOLUMES

By Joseph Foster, 1893

This work continues and completes "Alumni Oxonienses" containing the MATRICULATION REGISTER from 1880 to 1892 alphabetically arranged as a distinct division, to which has been added where practicable birthdays, schools, honours, and degrees. It also includes cross-references to all the biographical notices under the respective colleges or elsewhere in the other portion of the work, in addition to the index in that volume.

While the MATRICULATION REGISTER has been placed at my service as before by the University Authorities, the Heads of Houses have allowed me full access to their COLLEGE RECORDS, from which,in the majority of instances, I have been enabled to glean the birthdays and schools of their members since 1880,thus accentuating and perpetuating the link between the Schools and the Universities. Moreover, from the official University publications, viz.: the Honours register, Calendar, and Gazette, I have incorporated the particulars of the Honours, the degrees, and the appointments relating to each individual. This elaborate array of facts, together with the miscellaneous annotations from Crockford and my own collections, especially parliamentary and legal, should prove a trustworthy and unique guide, such as can be found nowhere else,to the rising generation of Oxford Men, destined to play so large a part in the government and intellectual life of this country.

Studies in Church Dedications Studies in Church Dedications

Ref: 0484
ISBN:
Studies in Church Dedications or England's Patron Saints

This CD contains an alphabetical list of every parish in England in 1890 and the name of the church or churches that served it.

This is an incredibly useful resource. How many times on county mailing lists do you see a message asking if anyone knows what the name of the church in the parish of, for example, Holme-Lacey is. No mention of even which county the parish is in...

Well, using the information on the CD we can look up Holme-Lacey and see that the church was called St Cuthbert and that the parish lies in the county and diocese of Hereford. The dedication is also described as 'Ancient: i.e. of pre-Reformation date'. Incredibly easy when you know how!
