History

Archdeacons occurred in the Diocese of York before 1093; before 1128, there were five serving simultaneously – probably each in their own area, but none occurs with a territorial title before 1133. [2] The title Archdeacon of Cleveland is first recorded before 1174 with Ralph, Archdeacon of Cleveland. [3] Of the five archdeaconries, Cleveland is one of three which has never split from York diocese.

People

The archdeaconry is led by the area Bishop of Whitby, Paul Ferguson [4] and by the Archdeacon of Cleveland, Amanda Bloor since 15 June 2020. [5]
