Bishop of Colchester

Bishop of Colchester

The Bishop of Colchester is an episcopal title given to a suffragan bishop in the Church of England Diocese of Chelmsford, which is within the Province of Canterbury, England."Crockford's Clerical Directory 2008/2009 (100th edition)", Church House Publishing (ISBN 978-0-7151-1030-0).]

The title takes its name after the town of Colchester in Essex, and was first created under the Suffragan Bishops Act 1534. The suffragan bishops have been under the juridiction of a number of different dioceses. They were originally appointed for the diocese of London, but changed in 1845 for the diocese of Rochester, and again in 1877 for the diocese of St Albans. With the creation of the diocese of Chelmsford in 1914, the suffragan bishops now come under the juridiction of the Bishop of Chelmsford."Crockford's Clerical Directory 2008/2009 (100th edition)", Church House Publishing (ISBN 978-0-7151-1030-0).]
