about some of them, despite 'Wikipedia' and other sources).

But it says it on the internet so it must be true :-)

Middleham certainly seems dubious - it is listed as part of the Ripon &
Leeds Diocese on their website, and is a joint parish containing three other
churches in addition to Middleham. One of the patrons of the living is the
Bishop of Ripon and Leeds. This does rather contradict Wikipedia's assertion
that it is a 'Royal peculiar of the present day'.
