Description

William Wake, as bishop of Lincoln, invented a new way to conduct his triennial visitations: he sent round to the clergy a printed list of questions which needed written answers. His enquiries covered not just clergy incomes and church services, but also the number of families in each parish; schools; charities; the number of nonconformists, with their teachers' names: a cross-section of life in Bedfordshire parishes.
