Excerpt from Church Plate in the Archdeaconry of Worcester: Being an Inventory and Notice Ofthe Sacred Vessels in Use in the Different Churches, With an Explanatory Introduction Later on, I saw the desirableness of extending this Inventory to other objects; and in consequence I have requested churchwardens of every parish to make an inventory of all the properties, registers, ornaments, and possessions of their Church, and to place it in the parish chest, in order that the articles contained in it may be verified when they are handed over to their successors. I have also requested that a copy of it may be deposited in the Archdeacon's Registry at Worcester.
In order to make the subject and the notices which are given of the plate of the different parishes more clear, it will be desirable to Offer a few introductory remarks on the history of the different articles of Communion plate which are now existing in our Churches.
