Table to illustrate suspension of prebends at Durham, 1848–63

Stat. 3 & 4 Vic. c. 113 s. 8 enacted that six canonries were to be suspended: the 1st and 2nd vacant canonries were to be suspended, the 3rd to be filled; the 4th and 5th to be suspended; the 6th to be filled; and the 7th and 8th to be suspended. Stat. 4 & 5 Vic. s. 9 sanctioned the annexation of prebends to archdeaconries.

The Orders in Council of 4 June 1841 (annexing the 11th prebend to the chair of Greek and Classical Literature in University of Durham) and of 27 Aug. 1842 (annexing the next vacant prebend to the archdeaconry of Northumberland) took precedence over this sequence of suspending prebends (Lond. Gaz. nos. 19986, 20135).
