I think Capellanus and Parochus are different levels of the Clergymen.
First they are "Vikar" (Vicar) then "Kaplan" (Chaplin) then "Pfarrer"
(Parish Priest) then "Dekan" (eng.?)...
Maybe this means, that the Chaplin changes to a parish priest in this 7 Day

Betreff: Re: [DVHH] Capellanus vs. Parochus
I have been looking over the death record for a family member in Beregh and
noticed that after the Clergyman's name is the title "Capellanus" which I
see means Chaplin. After everyone else buried within a 7 day time span, the
Clergyman's title is "Parochus" which is translated as Parish Priest. Can
someone tell me what would be the difference between these two titles and
possibly shed some light onto why this gg Uncle wasn't buried like everyone
else by the Priest?
