Bath (Bathonia) And Wells

(Wellia, Fontana, anciently Tuddington), a diocese of the Church of England, combining the two ancient sees of Bath and Wells, which were united in the beginning of the twelfth century. The episcopal residence and chapter are now at Wells; the chapter consists of the dean, four canons residentiary, a precentor, treasurer, three archdeacons, a sub-dean, forty- four canons non-resident, and two minor canons. The united dioceses, which contain the whole county of Somerset except Bedminster and Abbots-Leigh, contain four hundred and forty-seven benefices. The present bishop is Lord Auckland, appointed in 1854.
