The Archbishop's revenues passed in 1836 to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners (except for a fixed salary of £15,000 for the Archbishop). After 1862 (when an Act of 1860 came into force on the death of Archbishop Sumner) the Archbishops' estates, including Lambeth Palace, were maintained on his behalf by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners (succeeded in 1948 by the Church Commissioners).
