Help with deciphering Crockford's entry

Posted: 1295879314000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Lewis

Below is an entry for an ancestor that I found in the 1932 edition of Crockfords. I have attempted to decipher it, but could do with some help confirming it.

LEWIS, David Joseph Bertie. – S.D.C. Lamp. B.A. 1901. Jes. Coll. Ox. B.A. (4th cl. Mod.Hist) 1903, M.A. 1908. Ely Th. College. 1904. d 1904, p 1905 Rip. C. of Burnley, Leeds (in c. of St. Marg. Miss. Ch.), 1904-1906; St. Nich. Cathl. Newc. T. from 1918. (P, Visc. Allendale ; Gross and Net Inc. 375l and Ho; Pop. 2132.) Rectory, Allendale.

My interpretation is this:

David Joseph Bertie Lewis
Bachelor of Arts, 1901, St David’s College, Lampeter, Wales
Bachelor of Arts, Modern History (4th class), 1903 Jesus College, Oxford University.
Master of Arts, 1908.
Ely Theological College, 1904.
Deacon, 1904.
Priest, 1905, Ripon.
Curator of Burnley, Leeds (in Church of St. Margaret Miss. Ch.), 1904 – 1906.
St Nicholas Cathedral, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, from 1918.
Patron to the Viscount of Allendale.
Of the Rectory, Allendale.

My main issue is with the part about Burnley, I can't understnad the church name. Also, the timings of his degrees, and entry into the clergy, e.g. it seems he went to theological college in 1908, but was a deacon and then a priest by 1904/5.

Any help would be much appreciated.
