3 4 A E C C L E S I A S T I C A L R E P O R T S , I N 1 8 0 7 , [ Achonryjy J • • • • » = GENERAL OBSERVATIONS: Containing ANSWERS'to QJJERY i, Seft. 6; Queries 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 ;— ill other Queries being anfwered in the columns. Q^ ery 1. Sec. 6.— THERE is by Aft of Parliament a fufficient power lodged in the Lord Lieutenant and Privy Council, and thfe Bifhops of the . feveral Diocefes in Ireland, either to unite or difunite Parifhes when either may be deemed advifable; and the Archbilhops and Bifhops are enabled, by Aft of Parliament, to form a Diltrift ( part of a large Parifh J into a feparate Parifh, under the title of a Perpetual Curacy, by which means feveral large Pariihes in Ireland have been aftually divided into two or more feparate and diftinft Parifhes. Q. 3.— THE Board of Firft Fruits can augment fuch Livings by purchafing Glebe Lands and impropriate Tythes out of the produce cf the Firft Fruits and Twentieth Parts granted for that purpofe by Queen Anne, and by affiiiing the Incumbents of them with money for the ereftion of Glebe Houfes; but this Fund is found to be unequal to the effeftual augmentation of fuch Livings. There is alfo another Fund arifing from a charitable bc- quell of the late Doftor Boulter, Primate of Ireland, and veiled in the Board of Firft Fruits by Aft of Parliament, out of which Fund the Board of Firft Fruits is enabled to augment Livings under £. 100 per ann. by adding fo much Salary yearly to the Incumbents of fuch Livings as will make their annual Incomes £. ico. There is at prcient no other mode of improving fuch fmall Livings, butthofe Funds may be increafed by the B iunty of the King in Parliament, fo as to make fuch fmall Livings capable of affording to the refident Incumbents thereof the means of comfort in cafes where the Funds already mentioned are inefficient. Q. 5.— IT is apprehended by the Bifhops of Ireland, that the prefent Canon Law, as hitherto exercifed here, is fufficient to remedy the evil of Non- refidence; but at prefent the execution of Canon Law, in cafes of Non- refidencf, has been obflrufted by Appeals: and there is a Cafe now depending before certain Commifiioners of Review, ap- pointed by His Majefty, which, if it fnall be decided in favour of the Ecclefiaftical Authorities exercif- d in that cafe, will eltablilh fuch a Precedent in the cafe of Non- refidence, as will fuperfede the neceffity of recommending to the Legiflature to make any other provifion for the purpofe of enforcing RefiJence in Ireland ; but if the Decifion in that Cafe Ihould be otherwife, it may become advifable to apply to the Legiflature to enaft fome Law for enforcing the Refidence of the Clergy in Ireland. Q^ 6.— WE apprehend that the Laws already in being eftablilh the beft mode cf applying fuch Funds as are now applicable to the purpofe cf building or repairing Churches or Glebe Houfes, in the improvement of Glebes. Q^ 7.— THE Laws now in being, we apprehend, are fufficient to prevent Unions, Perpetual or Epifcopal, from being improperly made, and to prefcrve Churches or Glebe Houfes from dilapidations, when duly en ft reed. Q^ 8.— WE arc of opinion that the due execution of the new exifting Laws, with the fmall alterations which we have fuggefted ( if found neceflary on the contingency already mentioned) and fuch grants as His Majefty and the Parliament may in their bounty make for augmenting tlie incomes of poor Livings, purchafing Gkbe Houfe , and affifting the building of Churches and Glebe Houfes, will be fufiicicnt for the prefent improvement, proteftion, and fupport of the Eftablilhed Church in Ireland.
