From 1872 to the First World War, the status of the Bishop of Victoria was progressively altered. In 1873, the Letters Patent which bestowed quasi-secular powers to a bishop was revoked, this strained the relationship between the bishop and the chaplain. In 1882, it was decided that St John’s was to be financially cut off from the Crown and by 1886, the trustees began to draft an ordinance to cope with the new situation, which took form in Ordinance No. 11 of 1892. The disendowment gave the Cathedral a certain independence, but it also left them short of funds.
