Church Rectors

Previous Rectors






Hanging in the Chancel is the list of Rectors emphasising our unbroken link with the church of the past. Of particular interest are:

  • Anthony de Bec
  • Left Waddington to become Bishop of Durham in 1283.

  • John Every (Rector 1733-1779)
  • Remembered chiefly for neglecting the church building, but it was during his time at Waddington that Lincoln College, Oxford became responsible for appointing our Rectors. A link with the College still exists.

  • Richard Waldo Sibthorp (Curate here 1815-1816)
  • A member of the Canwick Sibthorp family. He founded the St Anne's

Bede Houses in Lincoln, and became a Roman Catholic - twice!

  • Archdeacon George Perry (Rector 1852-1897)
  • Church historian and is commemorated in a stained glass window in the Chapter House of Lincoln Cathedral.

  •   Doctor Thomas Henry Stokoe (Rector 1897-1904)
