To be boringly pedantic, I wasn't referring to a deanery in that sense. I was referring to a place called Chester Deanry. However, it would be peculiar if the country seat called Chester Deanry didn't have something to do with Chester le Street Deanery!

(As an aside, I really get confused over the jurisdictions between parish and diocese. The fact that a deanery is part of an archdeaconry and not an archdeanery doesn't help. :cry: )

The MI shows "Deanery" rather than "Deanry" and a burial year of 1773 rather than 1775.

There appears to be a district known as Deanery within the parish of St Andrew (=South Church). See Deanery Street, East Deanery etc. In the 19th century, Deanery Pit was opened.

As always we can rely on Peter and Ian to point us in the correct direction.
So their info, together with the monument inscription, should help you to flesh out your Family, and "Deanery" in the clerical context appears to be a red herring!!

Thank you so much for all your help. Invaluable as always.

I note that the MI for Stephen that it does state of ‘Deanry’ rather than ‘Deanery’, which may or may not be significant. Initially I thought it was perhaps a farm but Stephen is buried with his parents. He died 1773 at age of 32 and his father Thomas Charlton died in 1886. No mention of ‘Deanry’ for the father on the MI, which I thought would be likely if it was a farm.

However, I am really trying to trace my ancestry to William Richmond, who was married to Stephen’s sister Elizabeth Charlton, and who is also buried in the same Churchyard.
His MI states
‘This monument is to preserve the memory of William Richmond,late of South Church, brother-in-law of Stephen Charlton whose name is inscribed on the other side of this stone who departed this life April 18th 1801’
It seems rather strange to mention Stephen who died in 1773, over 25 years before, on the monument of William Richmond in 1801. Stephen is buried with his parents elsewhere in the same Churchyard and as far as I know there is no inscription on the other side of this gravestone.

Also, since the MI states that William is ‘late of South Church’ does this suggest the William is not originally from South Church ?

It all poses more questions than answers I am afraid !

Thank you so much for these particular links. Very enlightening ! Thomas Charlton was a Brewer !
I am not quite sure I understand the administration bond for Stephen. I assume it must be administration of his estate as he died in 1773. I shall read it very carefully.
Many thanks to Ian for locating and sending these links. Fantastic !!

Just to add to the conversation - and it may be totally wrong - this map from the NLS (hopefully) has South Church, South Church Forge, South Church station and also West Deanery and East Deanery, plus Deanery Corn Mill.
