Consecration 1623: deed of consecration; Encoenia: John Donne's published sermon bound with the manuscript text of the order of service for the Chapel consecration; transcription of the manuscript text of the Latin liturgy and English prayers.
Preachership: applications 1831-61, not continuous. For later applications see Treasury Office files.
Services: registers of baptisms, marriages and burials from 1695. Lincoln's Inn Chapel, together with the Fleet Prison Chapel, was a venue for "clandestine marriages" until Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act of 1753. The right to hold weddings here was resumed from 1910. Registers survive only from 1695 but burials certainly took place at an earlier date and marriages and christenings might well also have been customary. Burials ceased in 1852.
