    Is there a list or chart that shows the succession of bishops, one to the other, as far back as it goes?

    Most bishops get a chart back to an apostle (usually St. Peter in the West). I don't know where you can find charts for any particular Anglican bishop, however. Most (save many Continuing bishops) trace their succession back to Cranmer, then back to pre-Reformation English Bishops, then through some Bishops of Rome until you get back to Peter.

    Eventually we would like to put online the charts of succession that the Anglican divines had published in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, as a rule going at least as far back as Augustine of Canterbury. It is a bit of a daunting work without a lot of discursive text to relieve the long lists of charts, but, being pertinent, room is always open for somebody wishing to help out with it.

    It would be fantastic to get such charts. I surprised they are not publicly available in this age of the Internet.

    There's a Chart in Vernon Staley's "The Catholic Religion, that traces back to , S. Augustine ," The Apostolic Succession in the See of Canterbury."
    This is probably as good as it gets. How-and-ever the Primate of the British Church was held by the Bishop of Caerleon, so we are told and there were Bishops of London, York and Lincoln, (Orthodox Time Line.) as well as other places I can't remember. S. David according to some old writers transferred the Head See, from Caerleon to S. David's Cathedral in Wales at one time before Augustine. So perhaps we should look at the Church in Wales for help?
    Hooker wrote, At the arrival of Augustine the monk, about six hundred years after Christ, the Britons he found, observers still of the self same government
    by bishops over the rest of the clergy; Hooker. Eccles, Polity.
