Tenants, founders and incumbents of Yorkshire chantries (1546-1548)
Chantries were established to perform services for the souls of their founders and other faithful dead, including annual obits and anniversaries at which alms were usually distributed. The chantries could be at an existing altar in a parish church, a new altar in a side chapel of an existing church, in a new chapel in the churchyard or some miles from an existing church: few were founded before 1300, and most date from 1450 to 1500. Hospitals were places provided by similar foundations to receive the poor and weak; there were also religious guilds, brotherhoods and fraternities, and colleges (like large chantries at which three or more secular priests lived in common). An Act of Parliament of 1545 gave king Henry VIII the power to dissolve such chantries, chapels, &c., the proceeds to be devoted to the expenses of the wars in France and Scotland. Commissioners were appointed 14 February 1546 to survey the chantries and seize their property, and from 1546 to 1548 the commissioners produced these certificates giving brief details of the establishment and nature of each foundation, with an inventory of valuables and rental of lands. The individuals named in the certificates are thus the founder, the present incumbent, and the tenants whose rents provided the chantry's income. All the surviving certificates were edited by William Page for the Surtees Society, and published from 1892.

Wesleyan Methodist preachers' wives (1807-1808)
Wives of Wesleyan Methodist ministers were supported by the church, either centrally or through the local congregations: lists of wives were therefore printed in the annual minutes. Unfortunately, the ladies' Christian names are never given; where it is necessary to distinguish between wives of ministers with the same surnames, the husbands' Christian names are given. The S. preceding each name signifies 'Sister'. Examining these lists is nevertheless a good way to trace approximate dates of marriage for a minister, and approximate dates of death of wives that predeceased them.
