Bishop of Penrith

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bishop of Penrith is an episcopal title which takes its name after the town of Penrith in Cumbria.[1]

The title was first mentioned (as Pereth) in the Suffragan Bishops Act 1534 (alongside a see for Penreth – now called Penrydd – in Pembrokeshire) and was first used for the Diocese of Ripon in 1888,[1] but the incumbent had his episcopal title transferred to Richmond by Royal Warrant in 1889.[1] Since 1939, the Bishop of Penrith is a suffragan bishop in the Church of England Diocese of Carlisle who assists the diocesan Bishop of Carlisle in overseeing the diocese.[1]

Bishops of Penrith
From Until Incumbent Notes
1534 1888 in abeyance Crockfords shows John Bird as Bishop 1537-39 but this is almost certainly incorrect due to the misidentification of his See of Penreth with Penrith. John Byrde was consecrated for Dio.Llandaff (possibly for Skenfrith in Monmouthshire) and in 1539 was translated to Bangor.
1888 1889 John Pulleine Appointed for the diocese of Ripon. His suffragan title was changed by Royal Warrant to Richmond in 1889.
