The advowson of Clifford Chambers was held by Gloucester Abbey from the time it acquired the church until the Dissolution. The Crown retained the patronage in 1562 when the manor was granted away, but in 1575 Charles Rainsford claimed the advowson and devised it to his son Anthony in his will of 1578.
Anthony Rainsford tried to establish his claim in 1579, but in 1584 the queen was said to be the patron.
