Canonry is the office held by a canon of the Church of England (q.v.). It includes special prerogative: an ecclesiastical benefice; the spiritual right of reception as a brother, a stall in choir, a voice in chapter, and receiving a prebend or canonical portion annexed to it out of the Church revenues, in consideration of ecclesiastical duties performed in it. Every canonry has, of necessity, a prebend. and every prebend, of necessity, a canonry, belonging to it. By the Act 3d and 4th Vict., the canonries are reduced to 134. SEE PREBEND.
