- Xt: Ch: refers to Christ Church, Oxford. The patrons of the living were the Dean and Canons of Christ Church. The living was an impropriation, i.e. the patron appropriated the revenue to himself, and paid a stipend or pension to the Curate. However, the nomination could not be revoked, and conveyed a freehold to the Curate. See Thesaurus Ecclesiasticus Provincialis (Exeter, 1782), common notes and abbreviations & 59. [Back]
