Reference Code: GBR/0268/CCCC09L/C 6

Scope and Contents

From the Series:

The rectory of Duxford St Peter was purchased from Sarah Harris, widow, and Thomas Harris, the incumbent, by Archbishop Tenison in 1704, and presented to the college in 1706, the archbishop reserving the right of nomination during his lifetime. It appears from item 3, however, that Tenison had an interest in Duxford from at least 1689.
The Master and Fellows agreed on 4 Dec. 1867, to sell the advowson to Clare College with a view to the union of the two Duxford parishes.
