Subtreasurer the deputy-receiver of certain rents in a cathedral of the new foundation; a deputy treasurer; the sacrist; a minor canon who had charge of the church goods, acted as parish priest in the precinct, provided necessaries for divine service, and was librarian. The office is still partially preserved as an assistant in divine service and parochial cure of souls. At Hereford he ranked after the succentor, and sang the Founder's Mass. He is mentioned in 1290 at York, and at Chichester in the 14th century, being the treasurer's vicar, where he made the chrism of oil and balsam.
