History

The first recorded archdeacons in Hereford diocese occur soon after the Norman Conquest (as they do across England) – there were apparently two archdeacons from the outset. However, no territorial titles are recorded until after c.1125. The archdeacons at that time were the Archdeacons of Hereford and of Shropshire (aka Salop but distinct from the Lichfield Salop archdeaconry); the latter was renamed Archdeacon of Ludlow in 1876.
