Province of YorkEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
The Province of York is one of two ecclesiastical provinces making up the Church of England, and consists of 14 dioceses which cover the northern third of England and the Isle of Man. York was elevated to an Archbishopric in 735 AD: Ecgbert of York was the first archbishop. At one time, Archbishops of York also claimed metropolitan authority over Scotland but these claims were never realised and ceased when the Archbishopric of St Andrews was established.
