Excerpt from A Charge Delivered at the Ordinary Visitation of the Archdeaconry of Chichester, in July, 1845
Churchwardens to this part of the Act. The morals and conduct of these parochial officers fall directly within your care. Among the scandals which have affected the public worship of the Church, few have been more frequent, pernicious, and difficult of correction than misconduct in parish clerks. You have it now in your power to correct them to a great extent. Faithfulness on your part, in bring ing cases of offence before the ordinary, will soon raise a higher standard, and by awakening in them the consciousness that they will be held to answer for misbehaviour, the necessity of instituting proceedings, together with the scandal, will be taken away.
