Benefice of BREAN

(BW.WE.AX.06) variants

This figure is the total assessed value of the benefice. Note that for a cathedral church a zero figure is given because its assessed value is derived from holdings which are listed elsewhere in the taxatio text.

     Assessment for tax:
£ 2. 0s. 0d.

The modern name of the benefice together with the church dedication and the grid reference of the church building (the latter can be used to access Google Maps). Constituent parts of the benefice, such as vicarage, dependent chapels, pensions, portions and prebends, with their values, are also listed here.

     Benefice details:

The patronage status of the benefice in 1291-2, the date of the taxatio, as much as can be found in contemporary or near-contemporary sources. The line includes the type of patronage: ecclesiastical, secular or monastic; the name of the patron; and for monastic patrons, the order of their religious house.

1 Soon after the assessment this item, with seven others, was excluded, as a minute benefice (that is of six marks or less in value) not held in plurality: PBW1e 1 (as T 202). The exclusions of PBW1e were apparently corrections, thus indicating a revised listing, perhaps for a particular tax, though this is not noted. It is not immediately clear that these changes took effect; certainly, there were no changes to the deanery totals in any of the versions of the taxatio. In all but one case (BW.TA.DN.06) these were items for which the incumbent was not indicated as holding in plurality ('alibi beneficiatus') in the standard text.
