Contents

In the lists that follow all items without further description are accounts. Entries in italics (without a DCD reference number) are cross-references to items within other series of the Durham Cathedral Archive or elsewhere. For all other accounting material a brief indication of its nature is given, in terms that match those used in the reference to the document, e.g. Bursar, Sale of Tithes. The dates covered by each item are given as fully as possible, and where these are not taken directly from the heading, either because it is lost or damaged, or because it does not give full details, this is shown by square brackets, [ ]. Where more than one version of a document occurs it is marked within the description by a series of letters (A), (B) etc. On a few occasions there are two different documents of the same type in the same year, which have separate entries, such as Status, 1328 (A) and Status, 1328 (B) - where these have separate entries they are different documents, where included under the same heading they are duplicates.

Durham Cathedral Library MS B.I.28
ff.1-2. Houghall manor account: [c.29 Sept.] 1348 - [c.29 Sept.] 1349 (two pieces)
... [c. Michaelmas] ...8 - same feast 1349
... [Gilbert Ferande]
Two pieces of parchment, ff. 2r and 1v being the face, with the whole of the Cash account and first section of grain account. A strip from the foot is missing, but the amount missing is negligible as all sub-totals are present.
The approximate opening date of the account is indicated by the liveries of wheat to carters and ploughmen over a period of 42 weeks, starting Sunday after Michaelmas
Identity of manor and serviens is from first cash section where there is a livery of £6 from John of Newton, the bursar. His account for 1349 records such a payment to three manors, naming the serviens in each case: Dalton ('duas tallias'), Houghall and Pittington ('unam talliam' each). Pittington is excluded by entries on f. 2v for a livery of barley to Pittington and one of beans and peas from there.
ff. 157-158. 29 Sept. 1348 - 29 Sept 1349 (two pieces)
... [Michael] archangel 1348 - same feast ..49
John son of Robert de Hetheworth
Two pieces of parchment, ff. 158 and 157v being the face, with a strip containing the end of the Cash Account missing from the foot.. approximately one line is missing between the two pieces: the entries for peas and beans on f. 158v seem sufficient to account for the total on f. 157r, with the last words of the final entry lost.
f.159 and [?] f.2* Pittington manor account: [4 Oct. 1349 - c.14 Jan. 1350] (frag[s ?])
... [4 October 1349 - c. 14 January 1350]
... [John del Wra]
f. 2* is a narrow vertical strip that may have been part of this account. f. 159v contains the end of the cash account and beginning of grain account; f. 159r the end of the stock accounts.
Manor readily identifiable from places mentioned as sources of tithes
Balance of cash account indicates accountant responsible was followed by '... .ayles'. The Bursar's account for 11 November 1349 - 11 November 1350 records two liveries to Pittington, one to John del Wra, the other to John del Sayles. entries for liveries of wheat provide evidence for precise dating. One refers to a period of 6 weeks ending Sunday after Martin; in 1349 - Sunday 4 October - 15 November. Another entry refers to period from start of account to the Sunday after closure as 15 weeks, showing account opened on a Sunday; that period was as deduced is substantially supported by a further entry reading 'Sunday after Martin - 17 ...'.

ff. 1-2 and 196 Billingham manor estate: [11 Nov. 1341 - 29 Sept. 1342] (frags)
... [11 November 1341 - 29 September 1342]
... [John Mareschall]
Four separate pieces of parchment used as flyleaves; f. 1 is formed by a later blank leaf to which two separate pieces, each blank on one side, have been stuck, one to the recto the other to the verso. The pieces comprise: f. 196r, Cash Expenses sections for ironwork and various expenses; f. 2v, finalCash Expenses sections and total; f. 1v Works account; f. 1r, beginning of grain account; f. 196v, Grain Accounts for [barley?], oats, and [malt?]; f. 2r, Stock Accounts.
Unless these pieces are from a roll of Enrolled Manorial Accounts, the latest of which now extant is for 1325-6, f. 196 back and front are from a single manorial account, as are f. 2 back and front. On such accounts written, as here, from the same end on both sides, the grain account would normally start at the top of the dorse, but here f. 1r is blank on the other side. Although f. 196 rv is clearly in another hand from the other pieces, all may be parts of the same account (there are three hands in the account for Billingham 1339-40.
Three of the pieces bear clear evidence that they are from a Billingham account: Billingham tenants are the source of the bulk of the works on f. 1v, while the Billingham tithes are the responsibility of the accountant on ff. 1r and 2v. For f. 196 there is an entry on f. 196r that mentions Billingham, probably in connection with pasture for stock, while the eighteen oxen fed on f. 196v accord with the numbers given in the oxen account on f. 2r
The date of f. 196 can be securely established. The Granator is named as [William of] Stapleton; he succeeded Robert of Benton between 29 September 1340 and 11 November 1341 (Bearpark Account 1340-1), and was in turn succeeded by William of Goldsborough (Misc.Ch. 5831). Expenses of oats refer to Dunstan's day as Sunday, and the vigil of Barnabas as Monday; between 1340 and 1344 19 May and 10 June fell on these days in 1342. From the same section it is clear that the account opened at Martinmas at the latest and so covers 1341-2.
Substantial evidence points to the same date for the other pieces. Like f. 196v, f. 2v refers to the Terrar as William of Charlton, also to the Bursar as Robert of Benton, who accounted as such from c. 12 May 1341, and to the Prior's Chaplain as Richard of Bickerton, who became Almoner on 1 November 1345(Almoner's Account 1345). The numbers of stock given at beginning and end of account do not match those given on the Billingham account for 28 September 1343 - 26 September 1344, showing that this account does not immediately precede or follow that account. The entry for Richard of Tynemouth's expenses accords with the entry on the Bursar's Accounts for 1341-2, indicating that he was at Bewley for his health; by January 1343 he was at Finchale (3.6.Pont.4)
The name of the serviens is given in an entry in the wheat account, f. 1r, which also gives the time covered by the account as 46 weeks. This is exactly the period between Martinmas in one year and Michaelmas in the next; support for taking this to be the period covered here comes from the Bearpark Account that covers the period Martinmas 1341 - Michaelmas 1342, and also the 1340-1 accounts for Pittington and Westoe, which both closed at Martinmas 1341.
Durham Cathedral MS C.III.4
ff. 2 and 233 Bursar's Arrears and debts, [Summer 1308, from c. 1290 onwards]:
... [Arrears from c.1290 - summer 1308, outstanding summer 1308]
An indenture listing arrears and debts due to the Bursar was apparently cut up to form the front and back pastedowns and fly-leaves of this book, with f.2r following below f.233r after a small gap, and, as the dorse, f.2v below f.233v. Text was cut away along each edge and the main heading is lost, together with the headings to the first sections of the list. Each of the surviving columns seems to cover about four half-year terms, with little lost at the top, suggesting that the Pentecost term 1290 headed the column that survives in part on the left edge, and it is likely that this was the first column since the end of the list is found at this point on the other side of the parchment; the last term covered is the half-year running from Martinmas 1307, followed by the list of debts. The date of the indenture, the date on which the arrears listed were outstanding, cannot be earlier than the end of the last term covered, in early summer 1308, but it does not appear to be much later, as the total differs from the totals of the "magnum cyrograffum" at Martinmas 1308, 1309 and 1310 [Bursars Accounts 1308-9 (B), 1309-10]; a possible date would be between 10.viii.1308 and 26.x.1308 when the Bursar's office changed hands [Misc.Ch.5051 1 ; Misc.Ch.4612].

Two membranes from the middle of a roll. The placing of an endorsement c.1500 at the head of the first membrane indicates that no membranes remained above then. The water-damage that completely obscures parts of the roll may have happened by then: the endorsement refers only to the manors of Bewley and Billingham, which are those covered by the one heading now readily legible.
The endorsement gives the date as '1306'. Whether more could be read when it was made or not, this date clearly does not apply to all the accounts on the roll: the Bewley and Billingham account here does not duplicate the details found in the two Billingham accounts on Enrolled Manors 1305-6 that cover the period 3 October 1305 - 2 October 1306 nor does it take up the stock given as remaining on the later of those two accounts. Further evidence against a dating 1306 - 1307 for the Bewley and Billingham account here is the entry in the Bewley expenses 'per preceptum domini Prioris': by early October 1306 Prior Hoton was on his way to pursue his case against Bishop Bek in the Curia where he died in January 1308.
No evidence has been found for a firm dating of the roll. An entry in the Capons section of the Bewley and Billingham account refers to expenses 'domini Willelmi de Gretham bursarii et terrarii' but it is doubtful whether this indicates office held by William: no other reference has been found to him holding either of them, and a similarly phrased entry in the Geese section refers to expenses 'domini Prioris bursarii et terrarii'. William became a monk shortly before Thomas of Haswell, Bursar 1297 - 1299, and last occurs in 1321, as Prior of Coldingham, an office that he held in 1305, and then again from 1313 onwards, see Liber Vitae f. 59v, Loc.XIII:3c, Loc.VII:6, Reg. II f. 13v.
The dating formula for the Pittington dairy account may offer a means of identifying possible dates within the period covered by William of Greatham's career: it refers to the period of the account, from Sunday before Dunstan - vigil of Assumption, as 13 weeks 4 days. If this is taken to mean that the closing date, 14 August, fell on a Wednesday, possible years are 1297, 1303, 1308 and 1314. It is clear that the Bewley and Billingham account here is not for 1302-3: its details do not duplicate those in the Bewley account 1302-3 on Enrolled Manors 1299-1303. Of the other possible years the earliest, 1297, seems preferable, since both the script and the forms are less developed than those found on subsequent enrolments of manorial and stock accounts. Moreover, it is possible that the date '1306' added on the dorse c.1500 arose from reading '...xcvj' as '.cccvj'.

The Account is taken to be for Rainton by association with the two stock accounts that follow, supported by the fact that the Rainton Accounts for 1299-1300 and 1302-3, Enrolled Manors 1299-1303, mm 3 face and 1-2 dorse, have the same accountant, named in full on the latter. The Account appears to cover one year only and the opening date is taken to be the same that of the second stock account that follow it does not take up the balance of the Rainton Account 1299-1300 closed on 25 September 1300.

The next Wardley Account opened at Martinmas 1302, Enrolled Manors 1299-1303 m 5 dorse, and so this Account presumably does not go beyond that date, but probably runs up to it, given that the accountants are the same.

The place is identified from the reference to income 'de sandeldrauth in tyne del schelis' which also appears on the Westoe Account 1309-10, Enrolled Manors 1309-10 m 3 face. The approximate dates are taken from the liveries of wheat: these extend from Sunday before Matthew '304 to Sunday after Michaelmas in the next year.

The place is established from a livery of wheat to Dalton: although a similar quantity of wheat was received on the Dalton Account 1309-10, m 2 face below, from Billingham, Belasis and Westoe, Westoe is eliminated by the fact that the Westoe Account 1309-10 is found m 3 face below, and Belasis by the fact that this Account records oats received from the accountant there, leaving Billingham. The Account appears to be for a year, to Judge by payments to ploughmen and carters, and they received liveries of wheat for the year from Sunday after Exaltation of Cross, 21 September, '9 to the same day, 20 September, '10, but confusion is created by the payment to the accountant from All Saints, 1 November, to Sunday after Michaelmas, 4 October. The later closing date would be more in accord with the other accounts on this roll.

[c.Michaelmas - c.Michaelmas], unless headed otherwise
Most of the accounts enrolled here do not have headings giving their dates. The roll for the following year, Enrolled Manors 1320-1, is similar, but has a heading at the top stating the period of the accounts in general, with those that diverge individually dated below. Presumably this roll once had such a heading.
The approximate closing date of the undated accounts here is established from the fact that the stock remaining on the Dalton Account, m 4 below, is taken up in the Dalton Account opened at Michaelmas 1320, Enrolled Manors 1320-1 mm 2-3 face. The opening date is calculated from numbers of liveries to ploughmen etc. that show that the unheeded accounts covered one year. The opening and closing dates remain imprecise because the evidence for the closing date given above diverges from the evidence of liveries at Dalton, m 4 below, which indicate a year running from one Sunday after Michaelmas to the next. The original heading may still, however, have given the terminal dates as Michaelmas: there is an instance of precisely the same divergenc, in the Billingham Account 1320-1, Enrolled Manors 1320-1 m. 3 face

There is every reason to assume that this Account follows on immediately from the Westoe Account 1319-20, mm 1-2 dorse above, although this is not easily demonstrated. Taking the year to be 1320, the precise dates are clear and any difficulty in reading the heading is resolved by the period of the Account being given as 13 weeks.

The place and the accountant's name appear as a result of a livery of oats in this Account in the Pittington Account, m 2 face. See note to beginning of roll, above. The liveries of wheat are illegible and so this Account cannot be shown to cover a full year. As it is not followed by an account for Bewley for the latter part of the year, it presumably covers the period up to c.Michaelmas 1324, cf Houghall Accounts, mm 3-4 face; it also cover the provender of oats for draught animals, generally made available during the winter only.

Three of the accounts enrolled here have no heading giving the date; none of these is clearly for a period less than a year, and it seems that the roll once had a heading giving the date and applying to these accounts, like Enrolled Manors 1320-1. These accounts are taken to be for the same year as the headed accounts on the roll.

The approximate opening date is indicated by liveries of wheat that start on Sunday after Annunciation, although the fact that these only extend for 26 weeks to the Sunday of Michaelmas itself, and not to the next Sunday, and also that the period of the Account is stated as 26 weeks, does throw some doubt on the precise dates, even as given in the heading.

The place seems to be indicated by the sowing of a Billingham bondland with oats, and this is supported by the name of the accountant who handed over at the beginning of this Account: John de Seham, for he was one accountant at Billingham 1323-4, Enrolled Manors 1323-4 m 4 face. The fact of this Account being on this roll is taken to indicate the year. One livery of wheat covers the 24 weeks from Tiburtius & Valerianus, i.e. to Michaelmas. The period of the Account is given as 26 weeks 4 days, which counting back from Michaelmas, would start 2 March, although a date 7 days earlier does seem likely since several of the accounts on this were opened then following a general movement of accountants.

This Account includes a livery of peas to Belasis, and the corresponding entry in the Belasis Account, m 5 dorse, indicates the place and gives most of the accountant's name, the rest of which appears in the Bewley Account under oxen, m 3 dorse. The loss of the wheat section makes it difficult to establish the approximate dates the Account.

Manor is not identified on account, but details are very similar to those for Bearpark this decade, especially as to servants. The period of account is suggested by liveries of wheat to servants. The year cannot be established. In favour of 1337 is reference to Elias as a past accountant: he accounted Michaelmas 1336 - c. 4 May 1337; also this account falls well into the gap between that account and that opening Michaelmas 1337; a damaged section seems to mention Sunday the V[igil] of Michaelmas, which is consistent with 1337.

These pieces were removed from the collection of medieval financial fragments forming Misc.Ch. 7073 in February 1986.
m.2: Final entry on the face refers to a swan sent to Muggleswick 'quando dominus prior f... per j talliam contra I de Bermeton'. It is most likely that John of Barmpton issued the tally as Prior's chaplain, which office he held approximately 30 April 1335 x 5 May 1336 (Bursar's accounts, 1335-6), the last time he is mentioned.
m. 4: Payments for mowing refer to Belasis meadow cf. m. 5. Liveries include one of oxen to robert of Middleham bursar (held office c. 11 November 1332-3 and c. May 1336 - 12 May 1341). A livery of geese to William of Hexham cellarer eliminates the earlier period and reduces the later (held office 7 November 1333 - 29 August 1338 and 7 May - 3 July 1339). A livery of barley to [J]ohn de Edmundbyres serviens of Bewley and one of a pig to John Tydde serviens of Billingham probably put this account before 5 October 1337; neither of them accounted for these manors in 1337-8 or 1339-40, but accounts for both manors are missing for 1338-9. The Billingham account for 1336-7 does not include the livery of the pig. Period therefore seems to be that preceding, i.e. up to 6 October 1336, perhaps opening before Robert of Middleham's second term as bursar c. May 1336.
m. 5: Payments for hay-making refer to Belasis meadow and Plovghsuayne; the latter belonged to the manor of Belasis (Enrolled Manors 1325-6 m. 4 dorse). Liveries include one of oxen to Robert of Middleham bursar (held office c. 11 November 1332-3 and c. May 1336 - 12 May 1341). A livery of geese to Robert of Kelloe should probably be assigned to his first period as cellarer (took office between 3 July 1339 and 29 September 1340, his account 29 September 1340 - [17 March] 1341 is extant). Richard of Bickerton, who received a livery of hens as [Prior's] chaplain, held that office from 1336 or 1337 to 1343 or 1344.
m. 6: Liveries of doves refer to Robert of Benton as bursar and Richard of Bickerton as [Prior's] chaplain; the former held office c. 12 May 1341 - 11 November 1345 or later, the latter was in office between 1336 or 1337 and 1343 or 1344.
m. 10: Evidently a fragment of a manorial account, but by the script rather earlier than the other membranes, so possibly out of place chronologically and relating to another manor.

Surviving letters from heading could be feast of Matthew or Matthias. Account headed as for 31 weeks, so closing date can be deduced. If the feast were Matthew, then account would have closed in late April, which is not compatible with the appearance of wages for the Pentecost term and of harvesting expenses. The feast of Matthias, given the leap year, brings 31 weeks exactly to Michaelmas.

Account mentions two bursar's: John of Berrington and William de Aslakby. The latter held office 15 December 1371 - 16 April 1373, and was both preceded and followed by John of Berrington, suggesting this account to be for 1371-2 or 1372-3, but these are extant and do not match. As it does not match that extant for 1373-4, 1370-1 seems the only possibility. As William de Aslakby is mentioned in connection with the payment of the balance, the account could have been closed shortly before he took office.

Date taken from early fifteenth century endorsement, perhaps by John Fishburn, when account was probably undamaged since he was able to endorse 'Willi Marche'. Some doubt because stock remaining on account 1405-6 and that taken over on this do not match. This account does match accounts which although the same are dated '1407-8' and '1408-9'. Several monastic officers are named on this account; other than Thomas Rome as Sacrist and Thomas Witton as Granator, are Roger Mainsforth and John Ryton as former Bursars and Richard Haswell as the current Bursar. All these three wielded the Bursar's authority during the period of this account, and, if Richard Haswell's dates of office could be established this would date the account. Account runs for one year.

Draft
The date '1407' is a correction; the draft (B) is headed 'from Michaelmas 1408'. Doubts raised are exacerbated by that surrounding the account 1406-7, whose stock carried over matches to this and so must immediately precede it.

From the names of pastures sold this is an account for Ketton. The first entry refers to a livery from Roger of Mainsforth, presumably then Bursar (found in office 1400 - 1407). This does not duplicate another account between these dates, leaving 1402-3 and 1403-4. Stock taken up here appears to match that remaining on account closed Michaelmas 1402.

Dorse: Extracts from fourteenth century Bursar's accounts.
The two sections of this account, separated since the later middle ages to judge by endorsed dates, have been rejoined on the basis of the match between amounts of grain bought on cash account and the grain account. the year '85 is provided under Wheat and this is confirmed by the names of the Bursars under Cash Receipts: Walter of Norton (in office 25 November 1285 Misc.Ch. 3978) and Ingram, by about Easter 1286 (Misc.Ch. 3934). Terminal dates are the extremes given under oats and wheat.

From two liveries of wheat the account covers a period of 13 weeks, while provender of oats runs from Michaelmas to Circumcision. As this is a period of two days over 13 weeks, and since heading shows the account closed on the feast of the Circumcision, it is likely that Sunday after Michaelmas was the opening date, as with other accounts of the period.

Virtually all the material on this file of four membranes is concerned with sheep and wool, and in particular with shearing in 1338. the period covered extends to a year at least: an entry on m. 3 concerns the Instaurer's expenses 'per annum'. Another entry on m. 3 concerns stipends for the Pentecost and Martinmas terms, but marked to show the order of the terms should be read as Martinmas and Pentecost, the order found on the Stock-keeper's account for Pentecost 1338 - Pentecost 1339. This, with the other evidence, suggests that the memoranda refer to the period Pentecost 1337 - Pentecost 1338.

General heading. The last word of the date that can now be read is 'Decimo', after which the surface of the parchment has gone; whether it was possible to be sure that nothing was written after 'Decimo' when the label of c. 1850 reading '1310' was written is doubtful. No evidence has been identified on the roll to serve as a means of more precise dating. The items enrolled here are more akin to inventories than accounts, many sections start 'Sunt ibidem', but transfers, past and future, of stock between accountants are recorded.

General heading. Many sections in the accounts on this roll start by taking up remaining stock 'anni preteriti', confirming that the accounts run up to, rather than start at, shearing 1340. The period covered by the accounts is indicated by the fact that young stock are said to advance in age by a year. A date for shearing, 26 May, is given in Stock-keeper's Memoranda 1337-8, and the feast of Augustine, 26 May, was used as the terminal date in the headings on the Enrolled Livestock Accounts for 1349-50, 1350-1 and 1351-2.

General heading. The evidence for interpreting the heading is the same as that for the roll for 1339-40. Some at least of the accounts on this roll follow on immediately from those on the roll for 1339-40, since they start by taking up the numbers of stock given as remaining at the end of accounts on the roll for 1339-40; why there should be some other accounts here, such as Ketton, in which this does not apparently happen is not clear.

This account has no marginal heading giving the place. It follows the Waskerleyhead account above with less of a gap than is found between accounts for different places on the roll, and it is complementary to the preceding account, having three sections, for bulls, stots and older stirks. Before the account was closed John Walkere appears to have handed over all that remained in his care to Roger del Heued bovarius of Waskerley, who was perhaps his successor in office.

The only account with a dated heading is the last account, the cash account produced by the Terrar as stock-keeper. The sales of stock entered in that account can be traced in the preceding accounts, confirming that they belong to the same approximate period; most notably this is the case with 14 cows and 8 calves from Muggleswick sold for 62s. 6d., and one cow from Bearpark, showing that the first two membranes belong with the rest of the roll. Matching entries for movements of stock between Bearpark and Muggleswick provide further corroboration that the first two membra belong together.

Matching entries in the sheep accounts recording the transfer of stock from one accountant to another show that the accounts are for the same approximate period, which covered one year, from one shearing to the next; the first section of the cattle account refers to the stock advancing in age by one year during the account. The numbers of stock taken up at the beginning the accounts for Muggleswick, Belasis (from Holme) and Pittington match those remaining at the close of the accounts on the roll for 1342 - 1343, which includes a cash account closed on 24 June 1343.

This single membrane is partly defaced by the effects of damp. It comprises three accounts: horses, cattle, horses. In sunlight the marginal heading of the third appears to read 'Equiciu m... .eure par de anno dni . CCC xlviJ o '; an endorsement of c. 1500 reads '1346', and may have been made before the heading was obliterated. References to monastic office-holders support these dates: the Hostiller is named as Robert of Hexham, who accounted as such 1344-1348; of the two Bursars named Robert of Benton left office between November 1345 and December 1346, and Thomas of Stockton, the other named, took office during that period; John of Barnby, named as Prior of Finchale in a deleted entry, left office on 3 June 1346. This support evidence does not, however, exclude a dating of 1345 - 1346.

This roll, like those for 1350-1 and 1351-2, begins with two cattle accounts. The second is headed as concerning cattle dispersed around manors. The first has no heading but concerns a unitary stock-raising operation, evidently based at Muggleswick and neighbouring Waskerley. The cash accounts on the two earlier rolls record sales of cows from Bearpark, but there are no corresponding entries in the cattle accounts.

Three rolls, apparently originally forming a single file, to judge by the corresponding pairs of holes at the head of each roll, through which a filing thong could have passed. The rolls were probably separate by the early sixteenth century, when Thomas Swalwell endorsed each of them '1371'. Each roll has a heading. On both (ii) and (iii) this begins 'Adhuc', showing that they continued from a preceding roll, and on (iii) the heading in summary form, while on (ii) it is unfinished; the full general heading is on (i), followed quite closely by the cover attached to (iii), and by the one dated heading to an individual account, on (i). There is no reason for thinking that the general heading does not apply to all the other accounts; there are entries corresponding to the liveries of stock entered in Thomas Jonesson's account on (ii), in John Amisson's account on (i) and Ralph Jolibody's on (iii).

DCD-Enr. lstk. acs 1380-1   1380-1
Four rolls, apparently originally forming a single file, to judge by the corresponding pairs of holes at the head of each roll, through which a filing thong could have passed. The rolls were probably separate by the early sixteenth century, when Thomas Swalwell added a different date on the dorse of each of them: '1380' on (i), '1381' on (ii), '1382' on (iii), and '1383' on (iv). In doing this doubtless he followed the headings on two of the rolls: 'Augustine ... 80 - same feast 81' on (i), and 'Augustine 1381 - Katherine [25 November] following' on (ii). The basis for his dating of (iii) and (iv) is not clear; both are headed 'Adhuc', indicating that they continued from preceding rolls, and (iii) has an uncompleted heading ending 'A festo sancti', while the last account on (iv) is headed 'Augustine 1380 - same feast following'. Although there are twenty-one separate accounts no two accounts cover the same category of stock at the same place, and so there is no prima facie evidence that the accounts cover entirely different periods. In fact there is clear evidence that accounts on each roll cover at least part of a single period: movements of animals between one centre and another recorded in an account on one roll can be traced in a number of cases in the account for the other centre involved on one of the other rolls. Thus the movements of muttons recorded in the Merrington account on roll (iv) are matched by corresponding entries in the accounts for Westgate and Birkhouse on roll (i), and for Ketton on roll (iii), and also in the dated Houghall account on roll (iv) itself; similarly movements of cows entered in the Ketton account roll (iii) are matched by entries in the accounts for Waskerley and Muggleswick on roll (ii), and Overdeyhouse on roll (i). On the other hand there are also cases where movements do not match in this way: the movement of lambs in the Merrington account on roll (iv) do not match exactly the accounts for Westoe and Pittington on roll (i), and the account of the stirketarrius at Relley on roll (i) ends with a livery of the whole stock to Hugh Sadeler at Muggleswick, while the corresponding Muggleswick account on roll (ii) indicates that Hugh only took over when that account closed. This is especially significant since the heading on roll (ii) dates the roll to a period starting on the closing date given in the heading of roll (i), exactly contrary to the evidence of the Relley - Muggleswick transaction. The heading, Augustine - Katherine 1381, on roll (ii) is the only piece of evidence against dating all four rolls from the heading on roll (i), Augustine 1380 - Augustine 1381. Accounts on roll (ii) do not support its heading: the stirketarrius at Muggleswick received a stipend of 5s. 'pro toto anno', the same sum as other accountants on this roll, while half that amount was paid by the vaccarius at Waskerley to one man keeping the stock at Bearpark 'tempore hiemali', neither an appropriate amount nor description for the period up to 25 November and no further. This Waskerley account comes immediately below the heading, and so it seems that the heading cannot even be taken to apply to that one account. Instead the heading is evidently erroneous, and the accounts on roll (ii) cover approximately the same year as those on the other rolls. Whether this was exactly the period indicated in the heading on roll (i) has not been established, but it is shown to be approximately correct by several references to Thomas Legat as cellarer and one, at Relley on roll (i) to Thomas Lega Launcells as cellarer: Launcells left office between Michaelmas 1379 and Michaelmas 1380, when Legat took office.

General heading; like the heading to the first account, different parts are legible under bright sunlight, ultra-violet and infra-red light. The headings to most of the accounts on the roll give the opening and closing dates.

General heading. Only four of the accounts on this roll have headings giving the dating of an individual account; they all differ in dating from the general heading and cover shorter periods. There are no good grounds for thinking that the general heading does not apply to all the other accounts. Although some of them state that payment of the accountant's stipend was up to Invention of Cross, 3 May, only, one of these is the first account which is explicitly headed 'de tempore supradicte'. Several of them also refer to Robert of Crayke as lately cellarer and William of Kelloe as cellarer now; Robert accounted up to 21 August 1388 and William from 18 September 1388.

General heading. The headings to most of the accounts that follow specify the opening and closing dates, ten extending to April or May 1391. For the first two of the three accounts without dated headings, those of Walter Todd and John Dobinson, the dating provided by the general heading can be adopted, but not for the third, that of William Crolk, see below. Four accounts use the feast of Helen as a terminal date. This is taken to mean, entirely appropriately, the Invention of the Cross on 3 May, used for other accounts here, rather than her day on 18 August, a month in which such accounts were not normally opened or closed; clear evidence for this usage is found on Enrolled Livestock Accounts: Horses, 1388-91.

Eight weeks after Pentecost - Martin [c.1 August ? - 11 November 1400]
John Wethirhard hoggettarius at Houghall
The opening date reads ' per te a feste a festo Pentecostes post per viij septimanas vsque ...'. The first attempt simply follows the wording the previous accounts, 'per tempus predictum' The interpretation of what now stands is adopted because the account cannot cover as little as eight weeks, nor can the period between Pentecost whenever it falls, and Martin amount to either eighteen or twenty-eight weeks. The year is not given. The number of lambs received from Westoe is the same as that entered below in the Westoe account closed at 11 November 1400, but earlier accounts suggest that this may not have varied from one year to the next; more significant is the reference to lambs consumed by the royal household, most readily explained in the context of Henry IV's expedition to Scotland in August 1400. The one difficulty in dating this Account to 1400 is that it makes the immediately following account on the roll cover a period later than any other account on the roll.

John Hobson bercarius at Houghall
This Account takes up the stock from the immediately preceding account, closed on 11 November, which appears to be dateable to 1400. If this is correct, this Account is later than any other on the roll; there is nothing to show what period it covered.

Only the heading of the first account gives the year; the other headings refer back to it with a phrase such as 'Anno domini etc supradicto', which is not to be taken at its face value. It clear that it means "in the twelve-month period of the above account", rather than "in 1417": William Gybson's account must cover part of the same period as John Spynke's, for they have matching entries for a livery of stock, and William Cockefeld clearly accounted after, rather than before, Thomas del Wrea at the Westgate, although their accounts were enrolled in the wrong order chronologically.

The alterations to the heading render the dates given incompatible with the period said to be covered. the period of the account is given as two years in the entry for the accountant's stipend and the arrangement of the sheep sections supports this. In the first section the first entry is for sheep received from John 'bercarius ante ipsum', and another refers to Robert White as 'nuper serviens' of Ketton; it is clear from liveries of wheat on the Ketton account for Michaelmas 1405-6 that William Morland succeeded John at Pentecost 1406, while Robert White accounted as serviens of Ketton for Michaelmas 1406-7.

The payment of the chaplain's stipend for half rather than a full year gives an approximate indication of the period covered and points to the closing feast being Augustine of Canterbury in May, rather than his translation in September, or Augustine of Hippo's feasts in August or October. This sits slightly uncomfortably with the final balance that covers all four accounts and refers to them being 'of four years'.

Late medieval endorsement of date reads '..44', the opening year, cf. 1338-9 Account, confirmed by payments of the vicar's pension for the Martinmas term '44 and Pentecost term '45. These terms are covered by the 1338-9 account, running Martinmas to Martinmas. Total of sums delivered to Bursar matches the figure given on Bursar's account for Martinmas 1344 - Martinmas 1345 as delivered by Michael of Chilton. Accountant from late medieval endorsement, reading 'Chilton' and '.ich de' is legible in the fragment of the heading.

... [John Scot, proctor]
Dorse: Ellingham
For the said period
Account appears to cover about one year, following appointment of John Scot as proctor on 1 October 1366 (Reg. II, f.193v): tithes from fisheries are for Martinmas term 1366 and Pentecost term 1367, and payment of the pension to Farne for the St Cuthbert in September 1367 term is included. There is probably a retrospective element in the receipt of revenues from Cornhill chapel Easter 1365 - Martinmas 1367, likewise in payment to the chaplain there for the same period which is added in a different hand: this is probably because the former proctor referred to on this account, Richard of Sedgebrook, closed his account at Michaelmas 1364 (Bursar's account 1366-7).

Purification ... [2 February 1401] - same feast next year [2 February 1402]
Thomas of Hexham, proctor
Late medieval endorsement gives the date as '1400', and this is the opening date, cf. Norham account, 1404-5 etc., - 1401 in modern terms. This is confirmed by the arrears in the Exoneration after the balance which show that Thomas of Hexham was responsible for the five previous years, with this account covering the sixth: he first appears in office on the Bursar's account for 1395-6, with John of Bywell in office on Busar's account 1394-5, and he left office after six years, to be followed immediately by Richard of Eden with the account for 1402-3.

Richard of Eden, proctor

Richard of Eden was appointed proctor on 27 May 1402 (BL MS Cotton Faustina A.vi f. 106r). This is his first account: the Exonerations after the balance refer only to arrears of this account and of six years of Thomas of Hexham. Period covered is not clear, but last word of heading appears to read 'T..cio', and there is nothing to suggest period was significantly less than a year.

...
The Master of Farne is named as Thomas Witton, who took office in 1419 and had left office by 1423. When the sums for the vicar's pension (£20), proctor's fee (26s 8d), expenses for collecting tithes of lambs and wool (18d) and for writing the account (2s) are deducted from the total receipt, the result exactly matches the sum in the first entry for receipts on the Bursar's account for Pentecost 1419 - Pentecost 1420.

The Master of Farne is named as Thomas Witton, who took office in 1419 and had left office by 1423. When the sums for the vicar's pension (£20), proctor's fee (26s 8d), expenses for writing the account (2s), repairs (3s) and a decayed rent (£4) are deducted from the total receipt, the result exactly matches the sum in the first entry for receipts on the Bursar's account for Pentecost 1420 - Pentecost 1421.

The reading of the heading is confirmed because when the sum given as received in the first entry for receipts on the Bursar's account for Pentecost 1421 - Pentecost 1422 is added to sums given there for the vicar's pension (£12 8s 9d) and the proctor's fee (26s 8d), the result exactly matches the total receipt on this account.

Bursar is named as John Durham, who took office in 1419 and left it in 1427. This is not a duplicate of any other accounts dating from this period, and these cover every year except 1422-3. The fact that when the sums for the vicar's pension (£20), the proctor's fee (26s 8d), and expenses for collecting tithes of lambs and wool (2s 4d) and for writing the account (2s) are deducted from the total receipt, the result is 6d higher than the first entry for receipts in Bursar's account Pentecost 1422 - Pentecost 1423 is porbably because an allowance was made for this amount in respect of the Batehouse rent, as on Norham account 1423-4. The year covered is taken as running between the usual dates.

Bursar named as John Durham, who took office in 1419 and left it in 1427. This account is not a duplicate of any of those that cover the last three years of that period. The Master of Farne is named as Thomas Sparrow, who did not take office unitl after 1 August 1421. When sums for vicar's pension (£20), the proctor's fee (26s 8d), and expenses for collecting tithes of lambs and wool (2s 4d) and for writing the account (2s) are deducted from the total receipt, the result exactly matches the sum in first entry for receipts on the Bursar's account for Pentecost 1423 - Pentecost 1424.

Bursar named in entry for Islandshire lamb-tithes as John Oll, who took office at Pentecost 1429 and left it 11 November 1432.

Among receipts one entry refers to a free rent for two years, and liveries to the parish chaplain run from 3 May '49 to Pentecost '51, but great majority of entries refer to 'this year', specified in the case of Blessed Bread as Pentecost '50 - same feast '51, which is taken to be the period covered by this account.

Right-hand side of account is gone, taking the figures that might have provided means for precise dating. The form of entries for mortuaries, undivided and without details, is that found after 1452, before which details were given, and up to 1485, when the entry is divided between live and non-live mortuaries and details are given again. This is not a duplicate of any surviving account, and so is not later than 1478. It is written by the same scribe as accounts between 1466 and 1477: years with no extant account are 1463-1466, 1467-8, 1470-1, 1473-1476 and 1477-8.

The form of entry for mortuaries, divided between live and non-live and with details, was introduced in 1485-6. The script suggests account to be dated before 1500, and it is not a duplicate of an extant account, leaving only one year not covered, 1489-90, a year for which the Bursar's account is missing. Account covers one year and is taken to run the usual period from Pentecost. Robert Sanderson was proctor throughout this period.

The roll is now almost entirely illegible through effects of the reagent, and details can noly be obtained from the printed version, where account is assigned to [1328]- 1329, apparently as a result of misdating the charters mentioned to 26 December 1328 rather than 1327 (see SS12 vi, note and Misc.Ch. 633 and 634). Correct date is from matching tallied livery and totals to summary account.

(A): sums expended on three visits to Earlston (March, Easter week, late July) exactly match those on (B), although general arrangement adn details differ.
(B): Expenses concern the churches that were the proctor in Scotland's responsibility: several entries show him to have been Nicholas of Thockrington. Last section refers to the day after St Oswald as Sunday, which occured in 1301, 1307, 1312, 1318, 1329, 1335 and 1340. Nicholas' surviving proctorial accounts are between 1325 and 1332: he last appears November 1132 x November 1333 returning to Durham from Holy Island (Bursar's account 1332-3).
How the two rolls relate to account running 11 June 1329 - 27 May 1330 is unclear, as matches cannot be made.
