I keep hearing the BBC refer to the new Archbishop of Canterbury as the Church of England's 105th head. I would have thought that Thomas Cranmer was the first head of the Church of England in that sense (and the last to get papal approval, oddly). The new Archbishop would therefore fall well short of 105 as head of the Church of England, although he may well be the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury.
