CCED update March 2017

We are pleased to announce the latest update of the public CCED database. In the latest release, the review of modern Exeter data entered to date has been completed, and that for the diocese of Lichfield and Coventry is now far advanced – up to surnames beginning with ‘T’. These reviews are significantly reducing the number of clergy in the database as bleeding chunks of careers are linked up. Singificant amounts of new early modern data have also been linked for the first time, including more of the Patent Rolls 1540-1660, and some mistakes in location assignment have been corrected. Records for the post-1760 period in Hereford have now been linked to persons up to S and the career records adjusted accordingly. A significant amount of data for early modern Peterborough has now been linked to locations for the first time. Records from Westminster Abbey for the modern period have been linked to locations. There are also many corrections and clarifications that have been supplied by users, for which we are very grateful.
