RECTORS OF HAVANT

 

 

 

 

 

From the 12th century Havant was an Episcopal Peculiar, the Archdeacon having no rights of visitation or induction.  The bishop would appoint to the living, and issue a mandate to one of the neighbouring incumbents to induct.  Peculiars, other than certain Royal Peculiars, were abolished in the early 19th century.  In medieval times Havant was one of the best endowed rectories in the gift of the Bishop of Winchester.  Such benefices were usually filled by those in diocesan administration, the pastoral work in the parish being largely left to assistant curates.

The Rectors of Havant include many distinguished names. Diocesan Registers prior to 1282 have been lost and the first recorded name is OTTO DE CHAUVENT.
