In perusing the columns of Acreage and Rentals it must be borne in mind that the figures (being founded for the most part upon the Domesday Returns of 1874) do not include any Metropolitan Property, nor Leaseholds in many cases elsewhere, nor Manorial Rights over Wastes, nor Woods and Plantations. Most of the noble owners whose possessions are under 3,000 acres we have altogether omitted to debit (wanting time for so laborious an enquiry). Mine rentals from Coal are included in the annual values, but not those from Iron, Lead, Tin, and Copper. Neither are impropriate Tithes counted in.

Six Bishops awaiting the Reversion of Seats.

When the Diocese of Manchester was formed, in 1818, it was provided that the occupant of that See should be without a Peerage until vacancy arose in some See other than Canterbury, York, London, Durham, and Winchester. The newer Bishoprics of Truro, St. Albans, Liverpool, Newcastle, and Southwell (all largely endowed from voluntary sources) have widened the basis of this principle, and under it the number of prelates in the Peerage has not increased.


For specimens of Episcopal influence in the House of Lords, for cost of some of their Palaces, for analysis of Benefices in each Diocese, and for value of estates and probable cost of disendowment see section on the State Church.
