Title: Darlington Turnpike Deeds
Dates of creation: 1746-1870
Extent: 89 items
Held by: Durham University Library, Archives and Special Collections
Origination: documents relating to the financing of turnpike roads in south County Durham.
Language: English

Contents

The deeds relate to four turnpike roads passing through Darlington: the Post Road from Boroughbridge (Yorkshire) to Durham, the east-west road from Stockton to Barnard Castle via Winstone, the Coal Road from Darlington to West Auckland and a road from Cockerton Bridge to Staindrop. Apart from a few leases of turnpike houses and toll bars, and two documents about the bridge over Baydale Beck, the documents are all concerned with the practice of financing the roads by mortgaging future tolls, being either the original mortgages, later assignments or receipts on redemption.
The mortgages were created to raise money mostly within the first ten to fifteen years of the Turnpike Trust Acts, and once granted each one became a piece of property which could be bought and sold like any other, usually, but not always, at face value. They could therefore pass through several hands before they were redeemed approximately one hundred years later. Two or more mortgages might be accepted by a single individual at different times and there are several examples of individuals accumulating quite large holdings as a result of later assignments; although occasional reductions in the rate of interest and a reference to several years' unpaid interest suggest that they were not always particularly good investments. In contrast, mortgages were sometimes divided and portions sold or bequeathed separately.
This process produced a number of distinctive documents. It was quite common for the original mortgage to be endorsed with transfers of title and receipts or memoranda of redemption payments. Alternatively, separate deeds were drawn up for assignments some of which might in turn be endorsed. The University Library'collection is by no means complete. Quite often the original mortgage is missing, although its principal facts can be established from the detailed recitals of subsequent transactions which also occasionally contain information about other mortgages for which we have no documents.

Accession details

Some documents relating to the Darlington Turnpike Trusts have been in the possession of the University Library since before about 1950. They came from an unknown source with a similar number of other deeds and papers relating mainly to properties in the southern part of the county (Darlington and Stockton wards). The opportunity to increase the collection was taken in 1981 with the purchase of 23 items from the booksellers McDowell and Stern of York. At about the same time Mr. Michael Finlay an antiques valuer and collector in Carlisle offered us some more material, including four documents closely connected with the turnpike deeds, which he believed to have come from the same source as that purchased from McDowell and Stern. The Finlay purchase also included some items relating to the administration of the Poor Law in Darlington and in May 1981 these were transferred to the County Record Office in return for turnpike material which they had purchased from Finlay.
The description of each document ends with a letter indicating its source of origin, according to the following code:
[A] - Documents acquired from an unknown source prior to 1950
[B] - Documents purchased from Messrs. McDowell and Stern, February 1981
[C] - Documents purchased or donated by Mr. Michael Finlay, February and March 1981
[D] - Documents transferred from Durham County Record Office, May 1981
On inspection it became evident that documents in all but the last of these groups had passed through the hands of the Darlington antiquarian John Cresswell Brigham (see introduction to South Durham Deeds). Notes containing biographical and topographical information have been written on many of the items and in two cases these are initialled "J.C.B." It would seem that all these groups are artificial collections and they have therefore been rearranged according to content rather than provenance.
The following handlist includes all the turnpike material from the above mentioned groups. Most of the remaining items are listed as an appendix to the South Durham Deeds, a group with which they have a close affinity, and the remainder have been transferred or listed elsewhere (see related material after the list).

Arrangement

The accumulation or division of holdings, the way in which the transactions were recorded, and the gaps in the collection all create problems for arrangment. A straightforward chronological arrangement by road would be repetitive and confusing and involve much cross referencing. It has therefore been decided first to divide the documents by road giving the date of the Act creating the Trust and listing all the trustees named in the documents, and then to group together all the documents relating to mortgages taken out by the same individual. The groups are numbered in chronological order determined by the date of the earliest mortgage involved, and short headings in the list indicate the number and dates of mortgages in each group and the name of the person to whom they were granted. Where the original mortgage is missing these details have been reconstructed from the recitals of later deeds in the series. The reference of each document consists of its group number and a subnumber showing its position within the series, followed by the letter indicating its source of origin.
The descriptions of each document include all significant endorsements but ignore those of a routine nature, such as the attestations of witnesses or notes of registration.
