Copyright and copying

Permission to make any published use of material from the collection must be sought in advance from the Sub-Librarian, Special Collections (e-mail PG.Library@durham.ac.uk) and, where appropriate, from the copyright owner. The Library will assist where possible with identifying copyright owners, but responsibility for ensuring copyright clearance rests with the user of the material.

Arrangement

The entries within this list are arranged in the same order as the original documents, viz documents for every will proved (or administration granted) within a single year are stored together. Within each year, the documents are in name order. This arrangement is reflected within the reference codes, but note that in a few cases documents were misfiled prior to 2006 and so are lettered or numbered out of sequence.
For pre-1752 wills, note that this is normally an 'old style' year, running from 25th March in the year stated until 24th March of the following year; however, the yearly bundling of wills was not entirely consistent in this respect. Where it can be established with some confidence (for instance, from the date of an accompanying bond or an endorsement relating to the executors' oaths), the precise date of probate or administration is stated within this list. In other cases, however, you may need to check a year each side of the actual year of probate, especially for earlier material (see also under Finding aids below).

Finding aids

This list incorporates all the public information from the North East Inheritance database relating to the original wills and inventories etc, but only includes sparse references to the related records within other series of the Durham Probate Records (chiefly registered copies in DPR1/2 and probate bonds in DPR1/3). The online database at http://familyrecords.dur.ac.uk/nei/data/ will generally be found more helpful for research using the probate records, as it lists together records from multiple series relating to the same deceased person, and can be searched by person, place, occupation and document type as well as dates of probate and of documents. All the data within this catalogue is made available through the online database.
For links to the lists for other parts of the series of original wills (DPRI/1), see the collection level description, or use this link for the next list.

Bibliography

Many of these wills and inventories have been published, chiefly in volumes of the Surtees Society. Full references, with links to online texts where available, are in the Useful texts section of the North East Inheritance project pages.

Thomas Fairpoynt, cooper, of Crake [Crayke, Yorkshire].
Indented inventory, dated, 22 ... 1554; year amended from 1555 to 1554 in contemporary hand. Subscribed: administration granted to the children of the deceased. Endorsed: (1) inventory of Crake, [?name] defective; (2) inventory of Thomas Fairpoynt of Craike cooper, 1555.
Items in the inventory indicate that a will once existed. An endorsement indicates that the inventory may have entered the registry with its head damaged and the name of the deceased lost; a further endorsement by the probate office in a contemporary hand links this inventory with Thomas Fairpoynt of Craike and the year 1555: there were Fairpoynts resident at Craike in the 1580s, but no other Fairpoynt probate records can now be found in the 1550s. A misreading of the poorly legible preamble caused this document to be wrongly indexed and misfiled for many years under the name John Smith in DPRI/1/1550.

Carr [Durham, County Durham]; also spelt Car. Will endorsed: (in nineteenth-century hand) ... Carr.
This item has been identified with a member of the Carr family, probably of Durham City. From internal evidence the will may be dated between 3 February 1547 (appointment of Robert Meynell as Sergeant-at-Law) and 3 September 1558 (appointment of Robert Bennet's successor to the 11th prebend). The testator was probably a Durham draper or clothier; the main legatees - 'children' named Carr and Bayncroft - were perhaps the testator's apprentices. The identification with the Carr family is not certain.
