Venn, J. A., comp.. Alumni Cantabrigienses. London, England: Cambridge University Press, 1922-1954 says about this man:

B.A. 1820; 

M.A. 1823.

What does this indicate about his career?  What is a sizar in this context?  Does V mean Vicar (that would align with the census)?  What does P.C. mean in this context?

Thanks everyone!


PS - I'm just trying to help with the ancestors of a great medical pioneer, Janet Elizabeth (Claypon) Lady Forber.  She was the first to use retrospective (historical) cohort design and the t test in an epidemiologic study.

Here she is in Wikipedia:

Charlton Lane, whose career in the church i'm trying to understand, was her grandfather.

P.C. probably means "Perpetual Curate" see:

although if you search the databas, they just have him as Curate of St Marks, Kennington.

sizar means "receiving financial help from the college and formerly having certain menial duties."
