History

The post was historically within the Diocese of Lichfield beginning in the 12th century – around the time when archdeacon first started to occur in England. From 24 January 1837, the archdeaconry was in the Diocese of Worcester, [1] and since 6 September 1918 it has been in the Diocese of Coventry. [2] From 2009, the archdeacon of Coventry also had statutory oversight over the Archdeaconry of Warwick, delegated from the Archdeacon Missioner, in preparation for the merging of the two archdeaconries. [3] This arrangement may or may not still be legally in effect following the end of use of the terms "of Warwick/of Coventry" [4] (Rodham and Green remained, legally, collated to the Archdeaconries of Warwick and of Coventry).
