Instructions as to Induction.
The clergyman is to take the Bishop's mandate of induction to the proper office, for the purpose of procuring the Archdeacon's mandate, directed to all and singular rectors, vicars, &c., in order to obtain induction. But if the Bishop's mandate is directed in general to all and singular rectors, vicars, &c., any clergyman in the diocese may induct by virtue of that mandate, without any application to the Archdeacon's office.
Mandate of Induction.
JOHN STAUNTON, clerk, Doctor of Laws, Official of the venerable John Eyre, clerk, master of arts, Archdeacon of the Archdeaconry of Nottingham, founded in the Cathedral and Metropolitical church of
Saint Peter in York, lawfully constituted: To all and singular rectors, vicars, curates, and clerks, whatsoever, throughout the whole Archdeaconry of Nottingham aforesaid, greeting. WHEREAS the Most Reverend Father in God, EDWARD, by Divine Providence Lord Archbishop of York, primate of England, and Metropolitan, hath admitted C. J. F. Clinton, clerk, M. A., to the vicarage of the parish church of Orston, in the county and Archdeaconry of Nottingham, within his Grace's diocese of York, legally void by the cession of Charles Ingle, clerk, the last incumbent there, to which he was presented to the said Most Reverend Father by the very Reverend George Gordon, Doctor of Divinity, Dean of the Cathedral church of the blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln, and the Chapter of the said church, asserted to be the true and undoubted patrons of the said vicarage, and hath duly and canonically instituted him in and to the same, and invested him with all and singular the rights, members, and appurtenances thereunto belonging, as by the Letters Mandatory of the said Most Reverend Father to us in this behalf directed, doth more fully appear: WE do, therefore, by these presents strictly charge and command you, jointly and severally, to INDUCT effectually the said C. J. F. Clinton, or his lawful proctor (in his name and for him) into the real, actual, and corporal possession of the said vicarage, and parish church of Orston aforesaid, and of all the rights, members, and appurtenances thereunto belonging, and him so inducted properly to defend; and what you shall do in the premises, you, or whosoever of you shall execute this our mandate, are duly to certify to us, or our surrogate, or any other competent judge in this behalf, when you shall be legally called upon so to do. Given under the seal of our office, this thirtieth day of November, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty-seven.
Charles George Balguy, Registrar.
The usual Form of Induction is this: :
The person empowered to induct, taking the hand of the person to be inducted, lays it on the key of the church in the church-door, or on the ring of the door; or if the church be ruinated, it is done by laying his hand on the wall or the fence of the church-yard, and saying, "By virtue of this mandate, I induct you into the real, actual, and corporal possession of the- -of- with all its fruits, members, and appurtenances." He then puts the new incumbent into possession of the church; who, when he has tolled the bell, comes forth, and the inductor indorses and signs a certificate of such induction on the mandate, attested by those who witnessed the same.
Instructions as to Reading in.
A new incumbent of a benefice is to read, within two months after actual possession, the morning and evening prayers, and declare his unfeigned assent and consent thereto, publicly in the church before the congregation, in the form pointed out in the instructions as to licenses to perpetual curates; and
To read the thirty-nine articles in the church, in the time of common
prayer, and to declare his unfeigned assent thereunto within two months after induction; and
To read in his church, within three months after institution or collation, the declaration appointed by the Act of Uniformity, and also the certificate of his having subscribed it before the Bishop.
The forms required, as above mentioned, constitute what is termed "Reading in," and are usually observed on the same Sunday.
It is prudent to obtain from the churchwardens, or some other inhabitants of the parish, a certificate that the new incumbent has complied with the above forms, which are required to be observed in the church; a printed form of which certificate, as here set forth, is usually supplied by the Bishop's secretary at the time of institution or collation :
MEMORANDUM, That on Sunday the day of, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and- A. B. rector [or vicar] of the rectory [or vicarage] of the parish church of in the county of, and diocese of did read, in his parish church of said, the articles of religion, commonly called The Thirty-nine Articles, agreed upon in Convocation in the year of our Lord 1562, and did declare his unfeigned assent and consent thereto; also that he did publicly and openly, on the day and year aforesaid in the time of divine service, read a declaration in the following words; viz. "I, A. B., do declare, that I will conform to the Liturgy of the United Church of England and Ireland, as it is now by law established," together with a certificate under the hand of the right reverend, by divine permission Lord Bishop of ; of his having made and subscribed the same before him: And also, that the said A. B. did read, in his parish church aforesaid, publicly and solemnly, the morning and evening prayer, according to the form prescribed in and by the book intituled, "The Book of Common Prayer, and administration of the Sacraments, and other rites and ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the United Church of England and Ireland; together with the Psalter or Psalms of David, pointed as they are to be sung or said in churches, and the form and manner of making, ordaining, and consecrating bishops, priests, and deacons :" And that, immediately after reading the evening service, the said A. B. did, openly and publicly, before the congregation there assembled, declare his unfeigned assent and consent to all things therein contained and prescribed, in these words: viz. "I, A. B., do declare my unfeigned assent and consent to all and every thing contained and prescribed in and by the book, intituled, The Book of Common Prayer, and administration of the Sacraments, and other rites and ceremonies of the Church, according to the use of the United Church of England and Ireland; together with the Psalter or Psalms of David, pointed as they are to be sung or said in churches, and the form and manner of making, ordaining, and consecrating bishops, priests, and deacons." And these things we promise to testify upon our corporal oaths, if at any time we should be duly called thereto.
În witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands, the day and year first above written.
