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 these links for the previous list and next list.

Bibliography

Several 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.

Henrie YOUNGER, yeoman, of the Hole Rawe, chapelrie of Shotley in the countie of Northumberland [Shotley, Northumberland]. Died February 1598
Younger's wife Agnes had formerly been married to John Byerley and Roger Hopper, and latterly married George Atthie. The inventory refers to monies in the hands of George Atthie, the 'late' father-in-law of Robert Younger alias Hopper the illegitimate son of the deceased. Robert Younger is the only legatee named in the will, and which will is witnessed by his wife Agnes Younger among others: as the depositions (DDR/EJ/CCA/1/7 ff.296-298) make clear, Robert Younger's claim to any property was endangered both by his illegitmacy and by the existence of a younger legitimate brother 'sick in a cradle' and at the time of making the will thought likely to die; no further reference to this younger brother has been found. Henry Younger died about a week after making his will. His widow had married George Atthie (by July 1602) and then predeceased him (before 9 June 1604; hence the description of Atthie as 'late' father-in-law), and promises alleged to have been made by Atthie prior to this marriage are also described in the depositions of the witnesses to Henry Younger's will. See Probate Act Books: (1) DPRI/4/9 f.174: administration of the goods not yet administered of Robert Younger of Wolsingham [?father of Henry Younger] granted to Agnes Atthie, wife of George Atthie, for the use of Frances Younger, daughter of Henry Younger the son of Robert Younger; and inventory (£18) exhibited, 10 July 1602; (2) f.239v: blank entry with marginal heading relating to the curation of Frances Younger [daughter] and Robert Younger / Hopper, 26 Nov 1603; (3) f.262: Robert Younger, aged 14, elects as curators Hugo Hopper and John Richardson, with the consent of [his cousin] John Hopper, and the curators are monished to exhibit an inventory, 21 Apr 1604; (4) ff.264, 265, 267, 270v-271: in an office cause (May-June 1604) promoted against George Atthie by Hugo Hopper and John Richardson, Atthie is declared contumacious and the will is proved and administration of the goods not administered during the lifetime of Agnes Atthie is granted to Hopper and Richardson for the use of Robert Younger / Hopper, illegitimate son; an inventory already having been exhibited, 9 June 1604; [an inventory of Henry Younger (£118 0s 8d) is referred to in Atthie's 1607 account]; (5) f.394: Frances Younger, aged 13, elects her cousin John Hopper of Muggleswick and George Atthie as her curators, and the curators are monished to exhibit an inventory, 18 July 1606; (6) f.408v: in an office cause to exhibit an inventory, an inventory of the goods of Frances Younger (£20) is exhibited by John Hopper and George Atthie, 4 Oct 1606; (7) DPRI/4/10 f.11v (19 June 1607): (a) office cause to render an account of the administration of the estates of John Byerley and Roger Hopper promoted against George Atthye by Cuthbert Hopper son and William Hopper the husband of Margaret Hopper daughter, George Atthye exhibits the account, a copy of which is decreed to be delivered to the other parties; (b) office cause to render an account of the administration of the goods of Henry Younger promoted by George Atthye v John Hopper and others; (c) office cause, John Hopper, tutor, to render an account of the goods of his charge Frances Younger, daughter of Henry Younger; (8) f.14 (3 July 1607): (a) account of Frances Younger exhibited; (b) Byerley / Hopper office cause continues; (9) f.19 (31 July 1607): office cause to render an account of the administration of the goods of Roger Hopper promoted by William Hopper v George Atthye; (10) f.36-36v ([28] Nov 1607): office cause to render Atthye's account of the administration of the goods of Roger Hopper and Henry Younger; a long but damaged entry, and which appears to conclude the matter with the issue of letters testimonial upon Atthye's account.

inventory, actual total £53
Inventory of goods etc. not yet administered and dew to Robert Younger alias Hopper, illegitimate son. [The will relates that Robert Younger was born before the marriage but after the marriage contract of the deceased and his wife Agnes, and the inventory reflects his father's doubts that his copyhold property could be devised to him, but that his leasehold might be safely bequeathed. This inventory is of Robert Younger's portion, rather than of Henry Younger's entire personal estate. The account records Henry Younger's estate was inventoried (£118 0s 8d), but which inventory has not been found.]

Henry YONGER, of Hole Rawe within the chapelry of Shotley [Shotley, Northumberland]; also spelt Younger
The accountant George Atthie was the fourth husband of Agnes, who had formerly been the wife and executrix of John Byerley and then of Roger Hopper, and then the wife and administratrix of Henry Yonger, before marrying Atthie. Atthie had bound himself to distribute the portions and legacies of the children from each of the marriages of his wife, and for which he here makes his account. The account mentions inventories of Roger Hopper and of Henry Younger (£118 0s 8d), but which have not been found. Probate Act Book entries indicate that Agnes Atthie had died before 9 June 1604. The accountant mentions the following of her surviving children: Agnes Coteswoorth nee Byerley, Cuthbert Hopper, Margaret Hopper, Humphrey Hopper (tutor Robert Smith of Benfieldside). These estates became the subject of protracted disputes in the court: for the references to various Probate Act Book entries, see DPRI/1/1604/Y1: the account was exhibited on 3 July 1607, and appears to have been finally admitted on 28 November of the same year. For the will of a John Byerlaw of Shotley, and for the nuncupative will of Henry Younger and the inventory of his illegitimate son Robert's portion of his goods, see - DPRI/1/1582/B13/1 - DPRI/1/1604/Y1/1 - DPRI/1/1604/Y1/2

Accounts of George Atthie of the estates of Roger Hopper and Henry Yonger, former husbands of his wife Anne Atthie. With each remarriage the property of the deceased husband passes to the next: thus the first account includes items relating to the estate of John Byerley, and the second includes items relating to both Byerley and Hopper's estates. Endorsed: admitted.
