Bonjour,

 

Peut-être une « chapelle privée » ?

 

Bien à vous,

Objet : [M-R] free chapels in a parish church context

 

Dear all, 

 

Could anyone help with a definition of 'free chapels' please in a parish church context?  The term is used a handful of times in the Chantry Certificates for Oxfordshire 1547.

It doesn't seem to mean royal chapels or chapels of ease but just chantry chapels although it is not used for all of them.

 

I understood a 'free' chapel was one outside episcopal jurisdiction but chantry foundations in a parish church must have been subject to the bishop, mustn't they? Does it simply mean that they were funded separately and were not the responsibility of the parish?  

 

With many thanks
