Summary

With the coming of Bishop Thomas Vowler Short to the Isle of Man, the convocation took on a new life. The bishop preached an annual charge, which he had printed and distributed well beyond the confines of the diocese. The commencement of the Tithe commutation act, 1839 also meant that receiving the tithe account became an annual feature of the meeting. For this edition, the preconization lists are abridged, giving only the names of the absentees and of the unbeneficed clergy (the others will be found in the clergy lists at the end of the volume). The tithe accounts have also been consolidated and presented in a separate table (see the end of the second volume).
