Vicar (Anglicanism)
VICAR is the title given to certain parish priests in the Church of England . It has played a significant role in Anglican Church organisation in ways that are different from other Christian denominations . The title is very old and arises from the medieval situation where priests were appointed either by a secular lord, by a bishop or by a religious foundation. Wherever there is a vicar he shares the benefice with a rector (usually non-resident) to whom the great tithes were paid. Vicar derives from the Latin "vicarius" meaning a substitute. Historically, Anglican parish priests were divided into rectors , vicars and (rarely) perpetual curates . These were distinguished according to the way in which they were appointed and remunerated. The church was supported by tithes : taxes (traditionally of ten percent) levied on the personal and agricultural output of the parish

Churchyard
A CHURCHYARD is a patch of land adjoining or surrounding a church , which is usually owned by the relevant church or local parish itself. In the Scots language
Scots language
or Northern English language
English language
, this can also be known as a KIRKYARD or KIRKYAIRD. In England, the fact that in an open field village there were very few fenced areas meant that the yew trees needed for longbows were commonly grown in the churchyard since the foliage is poisonous to cattle. Churchyards can be host to unique and ancient habitats because they may remain significantly unchanged for hundreds of years. While churchyards can be any patch of land on church grounds, historically, they were often used as graveyards (burial places)
