Whereas the Endowment of the Archdeaconry of Colchester in the Diocese of Rochester consists of the Impropriate Rectory of Ardleigh in the County of Essex in the same Diocese, and of a valuable Block of Houses in the City of London which have been demised on Leases at small accustomed Rents, and on Payment of Fines (the said Rectory for a Period of Three Lives, some of the said Houses for Terms of Twenty-one Years, and the Residue thereof for Terms of Forty Years) : And whereas under the Authority of the Acts relating to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, and in particular of an Act of the Session of the Third and Fourth Years of Her Majesty, Chapter One hundred and thirteen, and of an Act of the Session of the Fourth and Fifth Years of Her Majesty, Chapter Thirty-nine, an Arrangement might be made with the Consent of the Holder of the said Archdeaconry for vesting the said Property in the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, and substituting in lieu thereof a Money Payment to the said Archdeacon and his Successors; but inasmuch as such equivalent Money Payment would be large, it is expedient that, subject to the Interests of the present Holder of the said Archdeaconry, Provision should be made thereout for the Endowment of the Archdeaconry of Essex of the Living of St. John's, Colchester, in the Patronage of the said Archdeacon of Colchester, and of certain other Livings in the said Diocese in the Patronage of the Bishop thereof: And whereas the present Archdeacon has not received any Pines, but the usual Time for renewing a Lease will shortly arrive : Be it enacted, That upon the First Avoidance of the Archdeaconry of Colchester after the passing of this; Act, all the Lands, Tithes, and Hereditaments belonging thereto (except any Bight of Ecclesiastical Patronage) shall, subject to any legally subsisting Lease or Leases thereof, or of any Part or Parts thereof, vest in the Commissioners for the Purposes and subject to the Provisions applicable to other Hereditaments vested in the said Commissioners. Provided, that it shall be lawful for the Archdeacon in possession of the said Archdeaconry at the Time of the passing of this Act, if he shall think fit, with the Consent of the Bishop of the Diocese, to signify his Willingness to the said Transfer taking place forthwith, in which Case a Memorandum of such Willingness, under the Hand of the said Archdeacon and the Episcopal Seal of the said Bishop and the Common Seal of the Commissioners, shall be registered in the Registry of the Diocese and published in the London Gazette, and from and after the Date of such Publication the said Lands, Tithes, and Hereditaments shall (subject always to such Lease or Leases as aforesaid), without any further Conveyance, vest in the Commissioners for the Purposes and subject to the Provisions applicable to other Hereditaments vested in the Commissioners.
