The Bishop of Durham's Halmote Court

The records of the Halmote Court, the copyhold court of the Bishops of Durham, were brought to the Prior's Kitchen at the end of 1953. Before that date they were in the Halmote Court Office, 50 North Bailey, in the care of Mr. T Downes. Mr. Downes, whom the occasional searcher remembers and quotes, had done the work of the office for years, but when he died in 1953 all work in drawing up compensation agreements for turning copyholds into freeholds had finished, the Durham Colleges had taken over much of the space in the building and the Halmote Court Records were used mainly by enquirers such as solicitors searching for title or local councils interested in inclosure awards.
The Halmote Court Records form only a part of the records of the Bishops of Durham, though a well defined class, apart from the Bishops' financial, chancery and other records. The Halmote Court was not wound up in 1836 with the ending of the Palatinate, and almost all the records remained at Durham, while business was carried on until the late 1940s. Some Halmote documents must have been taken from the repository on Palace Green to London with the other Bishops' records, to reappear in Durham with the deposit in the Prior's Kitchen of the Church Commission documents. This would explain why, for example, some Halmote alienation fines, or Halmote presentments, appear in the Church Commission records and lists (in such cases cross references have been given). A substantial number of Halmote Court Records bear Church Commission accession numbers, but this does not mean they were taken to London Court Office. There was a considerable traffic in documents between the Church Commission and Durham, Durham being in the nature of a sub-office of the Church Commissioners, and anything sent from Durham to the Church Commissioners received an accession number. All the Halmote Court Books, for example, bear an accession number received in this way.
The work of the Halmote Court was mainly in transferring copyhold property from tenant by means of surrender and admittance. These transactions appear in the Halmote Court Books, and the original surrenders and the enrolments in the Court Books form the bulk of the Halmote Court Records. The majority of enquiries are either about copyhold tenements, necessitating the use of the Halmote Court Books, or about inclosure awards.
All queries about copyhold tenements are best answered from the Halmote Court Books and not from the original surrenders, many of which are either lost or so badly preserved as to be impossible to consult. Up to 1720 the method of enrolling is chronological. After 1720 each division has its own series of court books going up to 1925 when copyhold tenure was abolished and the Court began to wind up its business by drawing up compensation agreements turning copyholds into freeholds. Each copyhold tenant has what is known as a "call number", usually abbreviated to, for example, "c.94" and on each transfer of property an entry was made in the appropriate Call Book. (Call Books are listed with Miscellaneous Books). Theoretically, the history of a copyhold tenement ought to be traceable back to the 17th century but this would certainly be extremely difficult and time consuming . The expansion of, for example, Sunderland and Stockton in the late 19th and early 20th centuries led to a multiplicity of calls as large tenements were split up. When being asked to trace a specific transaction in the Court Books, one of two situations will arise:-
1. when all the information (names, tenements, call number and date) is given. In this case it is relatively simple to find the entry in the Court Books, usually by the index of names of surrenderers and admittees which most have. If there is no index the court entries are chronological within the townships of each division.
2. when one or more items of information is missing. In this case the method to be adopted will depend on what information is given, but with a combination of court book, call book, patience and time, the court entry should eventually be found. The case of having only the address or description of the tenement needs special mention. In this case the 25" O.S. maps need to be used. All copyhold tenements should be marked on the 25" sheets and bear the call number. Once the call number is known, reference to the call book will reveal the dates of the transactions concerning the property in question, and these can then be found in the Court Books.

Accession details

The Durham Bishopric Halmote Court records were deposited by the Church Commission in 1953.
