Bishop of Norwich / Norvic
Bishop of Salisbury / Sarum
I would be interested to see, or know of, any FREE front/entire from the Bishop of Lichfield.
This bishopric was originally Lichfield and Coventry and the combined title was last held by Samuel Butler until January 1837. The combined bishopric was then divided and Coventry was transferred to the Worcester diocese. The Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry, Samuel Butler, was then titled Bishop of Lichfield until his death in December 1839. He was the first and last Bishop of Lichfield to use the FREE franking system which ended in January 1840 with the beginning of the penny postage system. Only a two year span...but bishops could be prolific writers. Possibly.
