Title: Durham Cathedral Archive: Medieval Accounting Material: Cells
Dates of creation: 13th - 16th century
Extent: given under each category
Held by: Durham University Library, Archives and Special Collections
Origination: accounting records made by officials responsible to the monastery at Durham.
Language: Latin

Contents

With one significant exception this list aims to cover all the medieval accounting material found in the Durham Cathedral Muniments, together with items from the series of accounts that has been found elsewhere. The exception is material relating to the collection of taxation, briefly listed in the Appendix; for this to be dealt with properly will require examination of the corresponding material in the Public Record Office.
In the lists that follow all items simply defined by date are accounts. 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. Here, however, 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, [ ].

Accession details

Deposited by the Dean and Chapter of Durham in 1947.

Arrangement

The accounts are listed by accountant, in chronological order. They are identified by their date: a date alone shows that it is the standard document for the section (usually this means it is an account, but in a section such as Bursar-Granator Indentures it will be an indenture. Where accounts contain other information this is given in the description. If the document is not of the standard form, the date is qualified in some form, such as Status, 1328, which serves to differentiate it from the main sequence. 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.
The rounded heads of the rolls may have been carried out as late as the nineteenth century, as on Hostiller 1353-4 where modern writing on the dorse has been partly cut away.

The large group of medieval accounts was listed in a single catalogue, but as more detail is added it has expanded and has been divided into three sections (December 2017) as follows:
Main estate and obedientiaries
Subsidiary estates and manors
Cells of Durham Priory (this catalogue)

On Durham accounts the phrase 'the same day next year' normally means the same feast day ..., and this is commonly not the same as the same day of the month, since the feast was often a moveable one. The Prior of Coldingham's accounts between 1345 and 1362 are clearly an exception to this.

Opening date of next account shows that 'the same day' does not mean, as before, the same day of the month but the same feast day, as normal on Durham accounts. Between 1363 and 1370 a date continued to be used for the opening date, so the corresponding feast day has to be established to determine the closing date: in each case it was Monday after Ascension as usual at this period.

Robert of Walworth
Robert of Walworth was elected prior of Durham 11 December 1374 and Robert of Claxton was presented as prior of Coldingham 30 December 1374 (see SS 12, pp. 43-4). In theory this account must have been closed between these two dates, although in practice it may include transactions from early 1375.

This account and that for 1362-3 follow the same practice as the Coldingham prior's accounts 1345 - 1362 in using the phrase 'the same day next year' to mean the same day of the month ..; in neither case does 22 May co-incide with an accounting day in normal use at Durham. Between 1363 and 1369 a date continued to be used for the opening date, but in each case this was the Monday before Ascension, and the same day at closing referred to the feast.

William Drax
Part of the opening date is torn away, perhaps in recent times, for SS 12 makes no mention of damage and gives the opening day as Ascension. This is adopted here since some Durham accounts of the period do use it (e.g. Coldingham prior 1399-1400). Monday after Ascension or Pentecost were more common, but the former normally with a more explicit phrase than 'same feast' for the closing date, but cf. Coldingham sacrist 1372-3 and following. The account clearly covers one year.

Closing date from balance of this account taken up on that opened 6 May 1364. The latter covers a full year and it is noticeablethat some receipts are are larger there than here: e.g. 2s. 1½d. as against 13½d. for an acre of arable in Bamburgh. similar smaller sums are found on the account October 1366 - May 1367, so this is probably a similar period.

Opening year originally read 'quinto' but altered to 'quarto' in ink also used to make an addition to the heading and probably used for the totals and balance as well. Alteration taken as correct, as if this account were a year later the next one following would not fit into the gap left.

Opening date from this account taking up balance of account closed 26 May 1365; surviving copy of that account appears to give the sum wrongly as 'xiij d' instead of 'xvj d'. The one surviving word of the closing date indicates this account to have run through to the next year, and probably 'ad eundem diem anno revoluto'. John of Herrington is named with John de Whitrig in the first item of expenses in the same terms as on 1364-5 account, where he was named as Keeper in the heading.

First account details supplied from 1390-1. Second account has expenditure appropriate for a complete year and it seems right to assume it to be the year preceding or following the first account. As the balance of this account is not taken up at November 1390, and an account running a full year November to November would be unusual, this account is not taken to be 1389-90. The 1390-1 account is unusual in closing with a balance of receipts in excess over expenses; this account may well have taken up such a balance since it does not take one up in the opposite direction, but the receipts section where it could have appeared is lost. The balance is 44s.; the account opened 27 May 1392 takes up a balance of 45s. Whether this balance should tell decisively against dating this account 1391-2, or can be explained away, perhaps on the grounds that this account is on paper and could be a draft, is a matter of judgement. John Bywell occurs as Master of Farne on 13 September 1391 (Loc XIII:10 a ).

This account has been torn in half, leaving the expenses section all but the first entry, kitchen expenses. Three other accounts in the series are torn in a similar way: 1392-3, 1394 (A) and (B). This accountis very like these in appearance and wording, save in one respect: the payment for a burgage in Bamburgh has been changed to read 2s. 0½d, the sum paid on surviving rolls for 1397-8 onwards (those for 1392-3 and 1393-4 record 22d.). It seems this account originally read 22d. and was then altered, placing it between 1393-4 and 1397-8.

Thomas Witton
In the late Middle Ages Thomas Swalwell wrote '1421' on the dorse. The parchment is damaged at the top so it is impossible to tell whether a date has been lost from the heading. While there may have been a date in Swalwell's time, he may have based his dating from Witton's last extant account closing on 1 August 1421. While he was succeeded as Master within the following year by Roger Lanchester (Norham ac. 1421-2), it is not safe to assume Witton drew up the status at the end of his tenure, as it could have been done at the start, or even during his period in office.

Thomas Moorby
Status lists the goods of Thomas Sparrow deceased, formaerly Master, and those of the cell on the arrival of Thomas Moorby there. Sparrows last surviving account closes 14 May 1431, but he may have lived on after that. Moorby was not appointed Master until 9 February 1432 (Reg. Parv. II f. 54r). The Status was probably drawn up later in that month.

Thomas Moorby
In the late Middle Ages Thomas Swalwell wrote '1417' on the dorse; since then this has been taken as the date e.g. North Durham, pp. 349-50. Although the sheet of paper is damaged at the top this does not impinge on the heading and it does not look as though there was a date which could have been read. Swalwell presumably based his dating on Moorby having accounted as Master of Farne 30 May - 29 September 1417, but the entry on the last line of the face 'obba quondam thome sparow' points to a date after Thomas Sparrow's death, which occured between his last surviving account closing 14 May 1431, and Moorby being appointed Master on 9 February 1432 (Reg. Parv. II f. 54r). Moorby remained in office until 1436 when he delivered a Status to Richard Kelloe which is extant. This document does not appear to be a draft or duplicate of that Status: it could be a fuller version of the opening status, or one drawn up at some point during his tenure.

Thomas Moorby, delivered to Richard Kelloe
Thomas Moorby's last account as Master of Farne runs to 3 May 1436, while Richard Kelloe's first account opens in that month. Raine had no hesitation in dating this '1436' ( North Durham, p. 351) so it is quite likely the last part of the date was not lost when he saw it.

(C) varies the feast used for dating, and in all other details from the other two accounts, nor does it take up the previous closing balance as (A) and (B) do. Dating is thus doubtful, but it does not duplicate any of Harom's other accounts, nor does it fit the only gap, 1443-4 as these balances do not match either. Possibly it is connected with the repeated charges of maladministration and misbehaviour laid against Harom as Master of Farne (Reg. Parv. II f. 174v; III ff. 1r and 17v).

Richard Steel, Master or Keeper
Years given in heading are not readily emended, but this account seems to belong in the last two decades of the fifteenth century; it conforms to accounts from 1484 onwards in giving rent from a tenement in Bamburgh as 5s. which up until 1477 was 10s. Closer dating rests on the assumption that the name of the Master is correct {the hand is the same as all of Steel's accounts as Infirmarer, 23.3.2011, AJP}. Richard Steel died between 26 May 1493 and 18 May 1494 (Bursar's Ac). He accounted as Feretrar's colleague in 1480-1 and as Infirmarer 1485-90 and 1492-3; 1484-5 is also excluded as William Ogle accounted for Farne in that year, as is 1493-4, for William Yowdale occurs as Master on 6 May 1494 (Loc XIIII:19 a ). This leaves 1481-4 and 1490-2. The Finchale account 1482-3 has an entry for Steel's transfer to Farne, but he appears as second monk, with John Manby as Master (28 January 1484: Loc.XVI:14 m and 14 r ). In 1481-2 Steel was probably at Finchale. On 16 May 1491 William Yowdale was appointed as Master (Reg. Parv. IV f. 18r); if he took office 1491-2 is excluded, leaving 1490-1. There is no known Master for this year since Richard Tanfield, who accounted 1489-90, was instituted as prior of Stamford on 14 June 1490 (Lincoln Register 22, f. 143v). Richard Steel may well have filled this gap, and the nonsense of the heading arisen from a careless attempt to adapt the heading of the previous account, i.e. 1489-90.

Preceding account runs to Monday after Ascension 1513, and that following from Pentecost 1514, the usual two days used in dating the accounts. This account is taken to Run Pentecost to Pentecost as the longer date would not fit the gap in heading.

The heading is damaged at the point where the day of the week was given, but it clearly ended '...s', reducing the possibilities to dies martis, dies jouis, or dies veneris. The first appears to be excluded since it is difficult to read the surviving letters as '..rtis', but either '..uis' or '..nis' seem possible; the latter is preferred because there appears to be a trace of a superscript 'er' mark of abbreviat: as in 'ven er is' in the heading to the Status for 1315.

... [Richard de Aslakby], Prior
The Debts 'de temporibus predecessorum dicti domini Ricardi' are exactly the same as those so described on the Status for 1331; this Status was therefore produced by the same Prior. Thomas Lund had become Prior by 15 October 1333 (SS 9 p 120), and so this Status is to be dated 1330, 1331 or 1332. It cannot be as late as 1332, for both this Status and the Status for 1331 record at Wingate 14 steers 'vnius anni' and 6 calves 'istius anni'. 1330 is more likely than 1331 as the quantities of grain given on this Status are either the same or larger than the quantities given on the Status for 1331, and this dating is supported by the fact that the gap in the heading does not appear to allow enough space for the word 'primo' after ' ticesimo'.

An entry under Debts owing to the House refers to the rental for the Pentecost term '38, limiting possible dates for this Status to 1338 or 1339, the latter is excluded since Emery of Lumley was Prior of Finchale by 15 April 1339 (Misc.Ch. 4390). Corroboration that this Status was drawn up shortly after that dated 21 September 1338 comes from their similarity on points of detail such as the quantity of peas at Finchale, the number of calves at Wingate.

Receipts and expenses are appropriate to an account covering about a year. The Exoneration refers to arrears for [13]51, and so this Account is no earlier than 1351-2; other arrears do not match those at the beginning of the Account for 1354-5, and so this Account is not as late as 1353-4. The 1354-5 Account has an entry for the Thrislington tithes for [13]53; the parallel entry on this Account is for [13]51, pointing to 1352-3 as the period of this Account. The first entry of Expenses shows that the accountant was Thomas; the only accountant of this name known at this period was Thomas de Graystanes.

An endorsement of c.1500 gives the date as 1363, but there is no sign of a heading on which the endorsement might have been based. The script is appropriate to this date, and the additions on the dorse point to it, assuming that they are coeval with the Status. A memorandum refers to a payment on 14 December '62, details of debts refer to the time of William of Goldsborough and of J[ohn] of Newton, the latter being replaced as Prior by John of Tickhill on 15 May 1363, which seems to be the most likely date for the Status, despite the fact that the details of debts do not match those given at the end of the Account closed on 15 May 1363 (SS 6 p lxi). In particular, the details include debts to Richard fitz Stephen and Robert de Walton which were cleared on the 1362-3 Account (SS 6 p lx), but they do not include all the debts given at the end of the Account closed on 30 May 1362 (SS 6 p lviii), a date between 30 May 1362 and 15 May 1363 is therefore a possibility.

There is clearly an error in the years given in the heading: under Payment of Debts the account for '76 is mentioned, while the final section of the Account for 1368-9 indicates that Uthred was succeeded as Prior by Richard of Birtley in 1369. As this Account takes up the Balance of the Account closed on 23 May 1379, the error is taken to be the omission of an 'x' from the years given.

Roger of Mainsforth was deputed to take custody of the cell because of the prior's incapacity on 3 Octoter 1391; on 30 May 1394 he was appointed master of Jarrow (London, BL. MS Cotton Faustina A.vi fol 82r and 70v). On the Account for 1395-6 the entry concerning the Balance of the Account for 1394-5 refers to it as the last account of Richard of Barton.

The accountant was Richard of Barton: see note to 1394-5 (B). On the Account for 1395-6 the entry concerning the Balance of this Account refers to it as the last account of Richard of Barton; presumably this is because he had been deputed to take custody of the cell on account of the prior's incapacity, in the same way as Richard of Stockton on 29 May 1395.

On 29 May 1395 the Prior of Durham deputed Richard of Stockton to take custody of the cell on account of the prior's incapacity, and to account annually (London, BL. MS Cotton Faustina A.vi fol 82r), but he then became Cellarer of Durham, opening his first account on 24 September 1395, hence the existence of the account for the first part of the period covered by this Account. It is likely that his responsibility then passed to William of Cawood: a large loan from him is recorded on this Account, and the Account for 1397-8 refers to his 'time' (SS 6 p cxx).

The opening date is established from the fact that this Account takes up the Balance of the Account closed on Monday after Ascension 1398. None of the entries gives grounds for supposing that the Account does not run to the same day in the following year, as usual at this period. The Exoneration refers to the arrears of Roger of Mainsforth and of the last account, which was presented by Robert Ripon as Prior; there is nothing in the Arrears sections or Exonerations of Robert Ripon's subsequent accounts or of his immediate successor's first account, 1405-6, to suggest that he did not hold office continuously.

The opening date is established from the fact that this Account takes up the Balance of the Account closed in 1409, and the closing day from the fact that the Balance of this Account is taken up on the Account taken to have opened on Monday after Ascension. The sum given for the arrears of Thomas d'Autre under Arrears on the Account for 1410-1 is exactly the total of the two sums given in the Exoneration of this Account as the arrears of Thomas d'Autre and the arrears of this account.

The closing date is established from the fact that the Balance of this Account is taken up on the Account opened shortly after Ascension 1411; Ascension is therefore taken to be the 'same feast' referred to in the heading of this Account, and the opening day is taken to be Monday after, rather than before, Ascension, as usual at this period.

The second item of Expenses states that the period of this Account was 30 weeks. It must then have closed in 1411, as suggested by the date of the Status. Counting back 30 weeks from 24 December 1411 would give the opening date Thursday 28 May 1411, the Octave of the Ascension; as this Account takes up the Balance of the Account closed on 'Monday after the same feast', it seems clear that the opening date of this Account was Monday after Ascension, as usual at this period.

The opening date is established from the fact that this Account appears to take up the Balance of the Account closed on Monday after Ascension 1415. The closing date is indicated by the fact that the sum given for arrears of this Account in the Exoneration matches the sum given as arrears of the last account on the Account opened on Monday after Ascension 1416. It is clear from the details of Arrears on the Account for 1422-3 that William Pocklington accounted continuously after taking over from Thomas d'Autre, which happened in 1411.

The second line of the heading begins 'xix'; since William Pocklington accounted as Prior of Finchale from 1411 to 1423, it is clear that there was no 'l' or 'x' at the end of the first line. The Account clearly covers only one year and seems to take up the balance of the account closed in 1419 (although reading 2d for 7d).

'15 May' in the heading is an inexplicable error: the vigil of Pentecost fell on 23 May in 1450, and this is the right date for the Account to cover a period of 17 weeks, which is what the heading specifies.

DCD-Finc. acs Status, 1450?   1450?
- [? 18 September 1450]
- [? Henry Ferriby]
An endorsement of c.1500 names Henry Ferriby and gives the date 1450; there are good reasons for accepting this, although what remains of the top of the roll does not suggest that there was ever a proper heading on which the endorsement might have been based. The script indicates a date in the mid-fifteenth century. The inclusion of stock and arable farming equipment at Wingate indicates that the manor was in hand, which was only the case between the accounts for 1444-5 and 1466-7. During this period the points at which a Status would have been drawn up are when a Prior of Finchale left office: Henry Ferriby on 18 September 1450, John Oll on 14 February 1451 Thomas Ayre on 5 June 1457, and Richard Bell in c.1465. Entries in the Status refer to all the grain produced at Cocken and Wingate, suggesting a date shortly after harvest, before any had been disposed of, so eliminating 1451 and 1457. The end of Richard Bell's priorate is excluded by the existence of a Status 'quando recessit', which this Status does not duplicate. Only Henry Ferriby remains.

John Oll was appointed Prior of Finchale on 16 September 1450 (Reg Parv III f. 43r); Henry Ferriby accounted up to 18 September 1450. The Account clearly covers less than a year, and Thomas Ayre accounted as Prior from 15 February 1451.

There is nothing in the entries on this Account to suggest that it covers anything but a full year, and presumably it closed at Pentecost as normal. The reference to arrears in the Exoneration makes it clear that the same accountant was responsible for this Account as for the three preceding accounts.

'quando recessit'
Richard Bell, Prior
The date on which Richard Bell left Finchale is uncertain. He was elected Prior of Durham 26 November 1464, but accounted for Finchale up to 2 June 1465. It appears that this was his last account: the Arrears on the Account for 1466-7 refer to his 8 years, and his first account was opened on 5 June 1457, while the pardoning of the 'superplus' at the end of the Account for 1464-5 suggests a change of accountant. On the other hand it is not clear who accounted for 1465-6, if it was not Richard Bell, who was happy to account for the Sacrist's office for 1473-5 as Prior. Although the Account for 1466-7 by William Burdon takes up a Balance from the preceding account, it does appear to be Burdon's first account: the Arrears section on the Account for 1474-5 shows that he had accounted for the previous 8 years, which would make 1466-7 the first, while in 1465-6 he accounted as Hostiller and also held office as Terrar, and Supervisor of the Prior's Stock. It is therefore possible that Richard Bell did not relinquish Finchale until 1466.

Copy of defective original, now missing, (made by Thomas Swalwell monk of Durham c.1483 - 1539.
Swalwell may well have made this copy by way of supplementing the repertory of Finchale deeds which he compiled: it also included a list of rolls and books. The heading does not conform to the normal pattern, and the wording is perhaps Swalwell's. Robert Weardale accounted as prior of Finchale 1479 - 1491; John Swan was appointed prior on 1 August 1491. Robert Weardale disappears from the records at this point, quite probably with his death, and it would certainly have been normal for a status to be drawn up when he left office. There would, however, need to be good reason to set aside the date which Swalwell gives three times as 1481, for he was a careful archivist. Moreover the gift of a psalter by Robert Ebchester, dated to 1481, describes him as prior of Durham, not former prior; he held office from 1478 until his death in 1484.

1338 is the date given in the c.1500 endorsement, which may have been made before the head of the roll was damaged. Comparing the sum still owed by the house from the time of Stephen of Howden with the figures given in the Status for 1333 and the status for 1340 on the Account for 1339-40, it appears that this Status falls between the two.

The account includes rents for the Pentecost and Martinmas terms '40 and the expenses of travelling to Durham for an election, which would seem to be Prior Fossor's in March 1341. It is probable that this account runs from the date on which the account for 1339-40 closed, 23 April 1340, to the date on which the status above it was drawn up, recte 24 April 1341, which is the day before the account for 1341-2 opened. This status does not duplicate that dated 23 April 1340 and its heading is suspect since the day following the feast of St George on 23 April was a Monday in 1340. The mistake is taken to be in the year: 24 April was a Tuesday in 1341. This rectification of the dating places the status towards the close of the period covered by the account below it, which would be normal at this date, and indeed the date of the status probably represents the closing date of the account.

The totals, or the totals of the sums for the individual items in particular sections, match those given on the summary account for 1344-5, and so the dating is taken to be the same. Such entries as can be read on dorse m.5. seem to match entries on the summary account for 1344-5. The text may well have been more visible in Raine's day, viz his extracts in: J. Raine, The History and Antiquities of North Durham (1852), p.86-88.

William of Goldsborough accounted as prior of Holy Island between 1367 and 1374; accounts are extant covering the whole period except 1369-70 and this Account may be assigned to that year since it does not duplicate any of the others. Moreover an endorsement of c. 1400 reads '.CCClxix'. This Account also takes up the balance of 63s 0½d given wrongly on one copy of the Account closed on Monday after Ascension 1369.

The opening date is established from the fact that this Account takes up the balance of the Account closed 9 September 1383. The next extant account opens on Matthias 1384, a Thursday; it is not clear that this Account runs up close to it, nor whether this Account runs beyond December 1383 into 1384, for the figures for variable items of expenditure seem appropriate for a period of three or four months.

The status follows the pattern of those for 1401 on the Holy Island Accounts 1401-2; in particular it includes the weapons, 'alblaster' and lances, not recorded at any other cell. It refers to an item given by John de Billefeld, who accounted as prior up to 1388. This had disappeared by the time of the 1401 status, and so this Status was probably drawn up when one of the previous priors left office: 1388, 1391 or 1397. The last section is headed Fenham, but how much of Holy Island priory's other property is included is difficult to determine. The dating is based on palaeographical grounds alone.

The year given in the heading of the Status is to be rejected. It would be quite exceptional for a dated status to be found on a roll together with an account opened on that date; the norm was for the status to co-incide with the closing date of the accompanying account. A detailed status of the type here was commonly only produced when one accountant handed over to another; John of Newburn accounted for Holy Island in 1415-1416 and 1416 - 1417. The person to whom such a detailed status was delivered was often the incoming accountant; John Morris accounted as Master of Jarrow from 1415 to 1417, occurring as such at the election of Prior Wessington on 5 November 1416 ( Reg. Langley ii.118), but he did take over from John of Newburn as Prior of Holy Island at Pentecost 1417, which would be the appropriate occasion for this Status. The details of sown acres in this Status do not match those in the status appended to the account closed at Pentecost 1416.

No prior is named in the heading. Wllliam Ebchester was appointed prior 11 September 1430 (Reg. Parv. II fol 43v) and his subsequent accounts indicate that John Morris was the last prior before him; it may therefore be that Morris died between June and September 1430, having accounted during the first part of the year.

The opening date is established from the fact that this Account takes up the balance of the Account closed 18 May 1483, the sum taken up being calculated from the difference between the two totals for receipts. The Account clearly covers approximately twelve months and it is assumed that it was closed as usual on the same feast as that on which it was opened, i.e. Pentecost.

The endorsement of c.1400 describes the account as that of 'T de Castro M[agister] de Jarow'. This is possible: Thomas of Newcastle died between 2 September 1313 and 11 November 1314 (Bursar's Account 1313-4 (A)), and in 1310 he had sold tithes at Jarrow (Jarrow Status 1310), but there is no evidence to corroborate the endorsement. The accounts on the face are clearly connected with the period when the cell was assigned to William of Tanfield after his resignation as Prior on 13 June 1313. He was also assigned the manor of Wardley and tithes from the parish of Jarrow, and it is likely that these are the subject of the accounts on the dorse (SS 9 p 95).]

The medieval endorsement gives the date as '1321'. This is confirmed by the fact that the last reference to Geoffrey of Haxby as master of Jarrow is for 7 September 1319 (2.2.Archid. Dunelm. 19), while the first to Robert of Durham as master is for 4 December 1323 (Misc.Ch. 4562), or perhaps 27 October 1321 (2.2.Archid. Dunelm.19).

The first of the debts to the house is 100s from the earl of Atholl, and this appears on the status drawn up between 1326 and 1334, but from 1326 on the debt is said to be hopeless and from 1330 the earl is described as dead; as neither of these qualifications is found on this roll, it is taken to be earlier than 1326. Equally it appears to be later than the status for 1321 which makes no mention of the earl of Atholl's debt.

The late medieval endorsement reading '1338' has hitherto been accepted, but this cannot be sustained: the debts from earlier years on this status are absent from the Status for 6 October 1338, presumably having been paid. Moreover Walter of Scarisbrick was terrar on 25 June 1338 (Misc.Ch. 3750) and on 3 June 1339 (Misc.Ch. 4079). He had taken office no later than 22 September 1336 (Ketton Account 1335-6), and this status is taken to be before that. Equally his status for 7 November 1334 is extant, and, since this status mentions a debt for the Martinmas term 1334, only 1335 seems possible.

At the end of the main section is an entry for debts from the time of Walter of Scarisbrick; this consists of 12s owed to Roger de Acres, but it does not appear to have the 36s owed to William Sire which is entered with Roger de Acres' debt in the parallel entry on the Status for 1338, and so this status is taken to be later than 1338. On the other hand debts from the time of Walter of Scarisbrick do not appear on the account closed in 1341, and so this status is taken to be earlier than 1341.

If the saint was Augustine of Hippo, this would make the closing date 29 August 1351, but this fits ill with the fact that wages were paid for the Martinmas term but not the Pentecost term, the second of the two terms making a full year. The saint is taken to be Augustine of Canterbury, giving a closing date that is Monday after Ascension, commonly used as a terminus for accounting at Durham.

The first letter of the last word of the date is 'q', for 'quarto' or 'quinto', giving a modern dating of 1355 or 1356. The latter puts the status in the middle of a period when Richard of Bickerton accounted as master. The former puts it a few days before the opening date of accounts by Richard of Bickerton which indicate that John of Norton had been accounting shortly before. He was named as the previous master on the accounts for 30 March - 18 May 1355 and occurs as master on 25 August 1354 (2.8.Pont.9.).

Under ultra-violet light 'sanctorum' seems to be legible in the heading, but in a position where there is insufficient space for it to precede the names of individual saints; it could follow the word 'omnium', and, since John of Bolton's successor, John of Lumley, opened his first account on Monday after All Saints, this could well be the date of this status.

Before repair the heading seemed to read '1372', and the details are certainly similar to those of the inventories for 1371 and 1373; the additional horse listed in the stable as against 1371 can be matched to the horse bought on the account for 1371-2. The last figure of the endorsed date seems to be '2', but the preceding Arabic figure is hard to make out; the editor of SS 29 apparently read it as '6', but 1362 is not compatible with the endorsement of c.1400 giving the master's second name as Lumley, as John Abell was master at Ascensiontide 1362.

Monday ... - Michaelmas 1426 [21 May - 29 September 1425]
Thomas Moorby, master
The opening date is established by the fact that this account takes up the balance of the account closed on Monday after Ascension 1425. The level of income and expenditure is far too low, however, for a period of eighteen months, even twelve months; it is appropriate to half a year. Since Thomas Moorby began to account for the cell at Wearmouth at Michaelmas 1425, this account is taken to close then. The scribe presumably slipped into the normal pattern of heading an account from one year to the next.

In 1436 Friday before Pentecost fell on 25 May not 27 May, although of course Pentecost itself was 27 May. To judge by other accounts giving the actual date it is unlikely that the scribe set out to give the date of Pentecost itself, more likely that he made a slip.

The closing date of the account is taken to be the date of the status above. It presumably opened after Hugh of Woodburn's status of 9 October 1342, quite possibly on 1 November 1342, the day on which the 1342-3 grain account was opened, the day after Robert of Cambois' admission by the ordinary (see 1342-3 grain). This would harmonize with the entry for the payment of wages for one half-yearly term.

The preliminary section indicates that the account opens on All Saints, the day after the admission by the ordinary of Robert of Cambois; this must fall between Hugh of Woodburn's status of 9 October 1342 and Robert of Cambois' of 11 June 1 343. The amounts of grain given on the latter status correspond to those left in each section of this account, although the periods covered by liveries are inconsistent.

Robert of Kelloe is mentioned in terms showing his term of responsibility to have ended; his last extant account closes on Monday after Ascension 1362. The beginning of the first section indicates, however, that it is concerned with income to be collected in the future, Pentecost - Martinmas '62. The status is therefore taken to date from Pentecost 1362.

The opening day is omitted in the headings for the accounts 1392-8, but was added on at least one of the accounts for every year but 1394-5. The 1393-4 accounts have Pentecost supplied, but the 1395-6 account has Monday after Ascension, presenting an insoluble, but probably insignificant, discrepancy.

At the head of the dorse are written two dates, one fifteenth-century and the other apparently early sixteenth-century. A little below there is part of a fifteenth-century inscription: [per] 'Ricardum Heswell quondam Priorem -', over which was written '1431' in the early sixteenth century. As Richard Haswell ceased to be prior of Lytham in about June 1431 (see note to 1431-2 account), it is likely that a status was drawn up then. The feast given in the heading is not easy to read, but the accounts for 1373-4 show that 'bishop', as against archbishop, does not preclude Dunstan; the time of year is appropriate.

As the closing year can only be read with difficulty, a problem is raised by the fact that the first line of the heading seems to end with the word 'quīto'. This can hardly be the opening year, as this Account is not a duplicate of the Account clearly dateable to 1445-6. Nor can it be part of the day of the month in the opening date, in particular 25 May 1444, as the next Account, which takes up the Balance of this Account and completes the closing date of this Account, would then have to be dated 1445-6, although it is not a duplicate of the Account clearly dateable to those years; further, difficult though the closing year is to read, it cannot be 'xlv'. It seems that the word should not be read as 'quīto'; it might be part of 'Ascensionis', or it may even be a later addition. Various entries indicate that the period covered was a year, and this Account takes up the Balance of the Account opened on 14 May 1442, which appears to cover the same period.

The lacuna is assumed to be 'Ascension' as usual. The year in the opening date is not wholly clear, but the year in the closing date can be established, although the Balance is illegible: assuming the Exoneration to be £28 17s 5d, as on the next Account, and adding this to the Expenses gives a total of £107 12s 4½d, which, when the Receipts of £81 0s 4d have been subtracted, leaves a Balance of £26 12s 0½d, the sum taken up on the Account opened in 1449.

One entry concerns Robert Knowte's expenses from Stamford; he was moved on 31 July 1465 (Reg Parv III f. 127r). The opening date is established from the fact that the Balance of the Account closed then was £28: on this Account the total of Expenses is £51 14s 1½d and the tota1 with the sum taken up is £79 ..., making that sum £27 or £28. This makes the Account John Middleham's first, and there is an entry for the prior's expenses to the cell. The level of expenditure is appropriate to one whole year. He was presented on 6 June 1465 (Reg IV ff. 153v-154r).
DCD-Stam. acs c. 1491   c. 1491

...
One entry concerns a monk going from Stamford to Farne, but the name is so damaged that no identification has been made. The dating rests on the Balance section where arrears are listed, but additions to this make the interpretation obscure. After the four years of John Auckland, there is an entry for the fifteen years of the accountant; this could be taken to show that this Account was presented by the same accountant, but John Auckland's successor, William Yowdale, was prior for exactly fifteen years, from 1475 until 1490, when he was succeeded by Richard Tanfield (Lincoln Record Office, Register 21 f. 10r and Register 22 f. 143v). After the entry for the fifteen years is an entry for the arrears of this account and another for waste and decay; this suggests that the Account is for the year immediately after William Yowdale's fifteen years, i.e. 1490-1. There is, however, a further entry, in the same hand, for the arrears of Richard Tanfield's first year, i.e. 1490-1, followed by a second entry for arrears of this account and another for waste and decay, both in a second hand; it would be easy to conclude that the last three entries were added to form a draft for the Account for the year after Tanfield's first year, i.e. 1491-2, if the hand for all three had been the same and had been different from the previous entries.

As is clear from the loss of text on the dorse, the damaged right-hand edge of the Account has been trimmed away. The first line of the heading ends 'A ...' and the second line begins 'Festum'; since the preposition 'a' should be followed by a noun in the Ablative not the Accusative, the end of the first line is presumably incomplete, and probably read 'Monday after'.]

Monday, St Luke 13.9 [18 October 1349] - Monday after Ascension next [10 May 1350]
John 'de Neuton' [? recte Norton], Master
Only 'q...' is visible for the decade, but Luke fell on Sunday in 1349, and Friday in 1359. Under sale of tithes the only dates mentioned are 1349 and 1348, while the endorsement, made perhaps when the heading was complete, gives 1349. John of Newton was Bursar in Durham during the period of this account. Given the shortage of monks after the Black Death, he may have held both offices (and he had expenses relating to Wearmouth), but it is a reasonable conjecture that the Master of Wearmouth was John of Norton, who was alive on 27 July 1350 (Misc. Ch. 7139).

A later medieval endorsement, followed by Raine in SS 29, dates this in 1370. The date 1371 is, however, virtually certain: the surplus owed to the Master, as found in the House's debts on this Status, matches the sum given as excess expenditure on the Account closing on this date, while the sum given as outstanding to the House on this Status matches that given as arrears on the Account opening on this date, where mention is also made of a relevant indentured Status.

The heading appears to be wrong. The account is not a duplicate of 1387-8 (A). That it is for 1386-7 is shown by the fact that the 1/5d of unexpended receipts appears as a remainder at the head of the receipts section on 1387-8 (A). The mistake is perhaps due to the irregular form of of the dating formula.

Schedule: List of monks of Monk Bretton c. 1413
No indication of origin for the schedule whatsoever; identification from Misc.Ch. 5277, W.A.Pantin: Documents illustrating the Activities of the General and Provincial Chapters of the English Black Monks, Vol III pp 226-227, in which eight out of the twelve names given appear as monks of Monk Bretton. Thomas Dowdale is given here as Prior; he appears to have held the office from 1407 to 1425 - V.C.H. A history of the county of York Vol III, p. 95. A likely origin of the schedule is a Black monk provincial visitation, and its presence in Durham suggest such a visitation by the Prior of Durham as the occasion. Between 1407 and 1425 there was one, in 1413 (Pantin, p. 238).

The figure for fixed rents makes it clear that the account is for 1 year. There may, however, be an error in the date 1402. The figure for excess expenditure on this account does not match that given at the head of the expenses section of 1403-4 nor are the figures such that a misreading seems likely. On the other hand the excess expenditure on 1400-1 is £5 6s 0d, while the figure given on this account as the excess on the previous account is £5 6s 8d. A very slight error would be enough to explain this difference; this would suggest that the account could well be 1401-2. The disparity between 1402-3 and 1403-4 is not, however, decisive; there is a similar disparity between 1404-5 and 1405-6 which cannot be eliminated by postulating a mistake in the heading as the series is otherwise satisfactorily consecutive.

The hand of this headless and untotalled expenses section suggests a date between 1400 and 1440, and indeed the same hand occurs on the accounts for 1417-8. The balance taken up on this fragment does not match the balance of any of the accounts for 1400-1440, leaving 1410-1413 and 1418-1420 as the only gaps. The latter seems more likely, given the identity of hands, and 1419-20 seems more probable than 1418-19 since the balance on the accounts for 1417-8, which can be supplied from the figures given, appears to be £7 10s 10d and this does not match the balance taken up on this fragment.

The closing date of the portion covering expenses is established from the fact that the balance is taken up on the Account opening at Michaelmas 1425. By adding this balance to the total expenses the total receipts should be £33 14s 10d and this figure can in part be read in strong light at the bottom of the portion covering receipts. The terms used for the closing date in the heading show that the opening date would then be Michaelmas 1424, and what can be read is 'a festo ... ..anḡli .. iiij'.

The heading gives no date. Robert Moreby accounted for Wearmouth between 29 May 1430 and 30 May 1435. '1434' is given as the date in the sixteenth-century endorsement, which may have been based on evidence now lost.

Modernization of the date would suggest an account for some four months, but the heading states that it is for one year sixteen weeks. The error cannot be in the closing date as the excess expenditure on this account is carried over on to that opening in 1447; it must be in the opening date.

The account is too detailed to be dated from comparison with surviving annual accounts. It is clearly to be assigned to the fourteenth century, and is in fact in the same hand as the account 1392 or 1393; comparison with that account also suggests that it covers the same length of time - a quarter - and there is mention of payment to sawyers before and after Christmas. Which year it belongs to in the 1390's cannot be determined; the only clue is the accountant's initial, but only between 1394 and 1397 are the annual accountants known not to have this initial.

During the 1390's these are the only possible expansions of the abbreviated or damaged names from among monks of Durham. The account is too detailed to be sure of a match with an annual account. It is however clear from the surviving annual accounts that the two monks above can only have been Bursars at Oxford in 1392-3, 1393-4 and 1397-8; in 1397-8 Teesdale was in fact Bursar of Durham, leaving only the last quarter of 1392 or 1393 as the date.

The heading is missing, as is the entry for remaining receipts taken up from the previous account This figure can, however, be recovered as two receipt totals are given: one without this remainder, the other with it; subtracting the one from the other gives the sum given as the balance on the account closing on the above date. The closing date of this account can be similarly established, for the balance of this account appears as the remainder on the account opening on this date.

It is clear from the draft and from the fact that this account takes up the balance of the account closing on 23 December 1435, that the heading should have had Michaelmas deleted from the opening phrase and Christmas substituted in the same way that Annunciation replaces Christmas in the closing phrase.

It is not made clear whether it is Margaret reg. or v & m; the latter, and hence the latter date, is probable because this account, with the ten week account below, would then cover the period between Midsummer and Michaelmas.

... [?Richard Bell, Keeper]
The reference to an indemnity for Bossall church shows that this is a fragment of an Oxford account. Its appearance is very close to that of Oxford accounts for the 1450's. If the words 'in Curia Ebor' are the end of the entry found at the same point and ending with the same words on other accounts and referring to payment of a proctor, the last account with this entry is 1457-8. This is not a duplicate of any of the extant accounts between 1442 and 1458, which cover all years save 1445-6 and 1450-1452; the former is excluded since the account opened in 1446 does not take up the balance of this account. Richard Bell occurs as Keeper at some point during the winter 1450-1 and 12 June 1453 (Reg. Parv. III ff. 47r and 58*v); no other Keeper is known for the intervening period.

The excess expenditure on this account is taken up on the account opening at this date; the fact that the sum for oblations to the keeper and five fellows is the same on this account as on the account for the next year indicates that this account is for about a year. Richard Bell occurs in office, 12 June 1453 (Reg. Parv. III f. 58*v).

John Burnaby, Prior of Durham
Swalwell endorsed this roll '1455', but this cannot be correct as Burnaby is described as Prior of Durham and was not elected until 25 October 1456. He continued to account for the College until the following Michaelmas, and so this Status could fall at some point within this period; it is perhaps most likely that it was taken when he handed over to the next Keeper at Michaelmas 1457.
