My ancestor Roger Challice received his BA from Balliol College Oxford in 1749. He then became the vicar of Mayfield, Sussex, and received his MA from Pembroke College Cambridge in 1762. I understand the MA was awarded without further study or examination, just time in 'the job'. I am puzzled by the MA coming from Cambridge - is there a link between Cambridge and Canterbury, as Mayfield came under the jurisdiction of the Canterbury Diocese?
