History

Abbots & Deans

List of Abbots of the monastery and Deans of the Collegiate Church.

Abbots

The monastery was dissolved in January 1540, then was restored by Mary I.

Bishop of Westminster

Deans

Notes

Neile, Dolben, Sprat, Atterbury, Bradford, Wilcocks, Pearce, Thomas and Horsley were also Bishops of Rochester at the same time as they were Dean. As Rochester was an impoverished diocese holding it alongside the Deanery of Westminster enabled it to have an income and a London residence.

The work can be tough, but even the cold and rain don’t bother me as I enjoy it so much. I love every day that I spend at the Abbey – just being here makes me smile.
