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. [1] The title Archdeacon of the East Riding is first recorded before 1133 with William FitzHerbert, Archdeacon of the East Riding (later Archbishop of York). [2] Of the five archdeaconries, East Riding is one of three which has never split from York diocese.

The archdeaconry is vacant since the resignation of David Butterfield; the acting archdeacon is retired archdeacon Peter Harrison; [3] the suffragan Bishop of Hull exercises episcopal oversight over the archdeaconry. On 28 July 2014, it was announced that Andy Broom is to become the next archdeacon proper. [4]

List of archdeacons

Some archdeacons without territorial titles are recorded from around the time of Thomas of Bayeux; see Archdeacon of York.
