The archdeaconry was moved to Ely diocese by Order in Council on 30 May 1837. [1] The archdeaconry of Wisbech was created from several deaneries not already in an archdeaconry, by Order in Council on 5 February 1915. [2] c.2004–2005, appointments to the Wisbech archdeaconry ceased and Huntingdon archdeaconry was renamed to the present Archdeaconry of Huntingdon and Wisbech.
