Title: Cosin Letter-Books
Dates of creation: 1593-1686
Extent: 6 volumes bound in 9.
Held by: Durham University Library, Archives and Special Collections
Origination: correspondence, etc., mainly of John Cosin (1594-1672), Bishop of Durham, and other northern churchmen.
Language: English

Contents

The contents of Letter-book 1 are for the most part letters from or to northern churchmen, particularly Isaac Basire (1607-76), Archdeacon of Northumberland, and John Cosin (1594-1672), Bishop of Durham, about both civil and ecclesiastical affairs. Letter-books 2-6 consist almost entirely of correspondence of John Cosin or his servants during the years of his episcopate, particularly Cosin's correspondence with his Auditor, Miles Stapylton.
George Ornsby included selections from Letter-books 1-5 in his edition of The correspondence of John Cosin (Surtees Society 52, 55: 1868-70), but he omitted very many letters completely, and printed only extracts from almost all the others. Ornsby's transcripts are not entirely accurate and sometimes transpose paragraphs from one letter to another. The University Library's interleaved set of Ornsby is annotated to show which letters come from the Cosin Letter-books and to indicate transpositions in the text.
Hodgson printed Letter-book 6 in full in Northumbrian Documents of the 17th and 18th centuries (Surtees Society 131, 1918) pp.133-267; the letters not included in Wood's gift to Peterhouse have disappeared. The University Library's copy of Hodgson is annotated to show which letters come from Letter-book 6.

Accession details

Part of Bishop Cosin's Library, Durham (now in Durham University Library).
Letter-books 1-5 were originally bound up by the Waghorn bindery in Durham in the 1720's or 1730's, probably at the instigation of the Durham antiquary Dr. Christopher Hunter (1675-1757) since the contents-lists inside the volumes are in his hand; (among the Hunter MSS in Durham Cathedral Library is a group of guard-books with similar bindings and lists including 2 volumes, Hunter MSS 7 and 10, which include other letters to Miles Stapylton).
They were subsequently found by James Raine the elder, "in a neglected state" in the porter's lodge of Auckland Palace (see Raine's Brief Historical Account of the Episcopal Castle ... of Auckland (Durham, 1852), pp. 127-128), and on his advice were given to Cosin's Library in 1818 by Bishop Shute Barrington.
Letter-book 6 contains 24 letters from Cosin and 1 from his chaplain William Flower, all to Stapylton, which were presented to Cosin's Library in 1969 by Peterhouse, Cambridge, which had been given them in 1927 by H.M. Wood, literary executor to J.C. Hodgson. They had been part of a larger group of letters to Stapylton which was entrusted to Hodgson, for publication by the Surtees Society, by Canon William Greenwell, who stated he had rescued them from the sweepings of an old Durham solicitor's office.

Cosin Letter-book 1
A collection of 191 documents written between 1593 and 1686 and arranged roughly in chronological order.
The first twelve items cover the period 1593-1617 and are mostly concerned with the affairs of the Dean and Chapter of Durham. The major part of the volume (nos. 13-187) consists mainly of letters written by or to John Cosin or Isaac Basire.
John Cosin was appointed Archdeacon of the East Riding in 1625, becoming Rector of Brancepeth the following year and Master of Peterhouse, Cambridge from 1635. During the Interregnum he lived in Paris with the Royal household and on his return to England in 1660 he was appointed to the Bishopric of Durham which he held until his death in 1672.
Isaac Basire was born in Rouen and after studying in Rotterdam and Leyden came to Cambridge where he was ordained by Thomas Morton and became his chaplain, moving to Durham when Morton was appointed Bishop. He held a number of preferments in Durham, including the Rectories of Eaglescliffe (from 1636) and Stanhope (from 1645), and became a Prebendary in 1643 and Archdeacon of Northumberland in 1644. In 1646 he was appointed as one of the chaplains to the King's private chapel. He left England the following year, returning first to Rouen, and then spent the next 15 years travelling through Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. In 1654 the Prince of Transylvania, George Racoczi, appointed him Professor of Divinity in the University of Alba Julia. He returned to Durham seven years later and was restored to all his offices.
Most of the papers date from the period following the Restoration, after both Cosin and Basire had returned to England, but there are a substantial number of documents from earlier parts of their lives: twenty seven items (nos. 13-39) from the time before they went into exile and another twenty six (nos. 40-65) covering the period when they were absent from England.
The correspondence reflects many aspects of the lives of the two men. While most of the items are connected with the exercise of the spiritual, administrative, and civil duties attached to their offices, they also contain news and comment on public events, discussion of differences in liturgical practice and belief between the Churches of England, Rome and the East, together with expressions of friendship, family and personal matters. 48 of the letters have been printed either in whole or in part: 24 are included in W.N. Darnell's Memoir and Correspondence of Dr. Basire (1831) and the others in Bishop Cosin's Correspondence vols. 1 and 2 edited by G. Ornsby for the Surtees Society (vols. 52 and 55, 1868 and 1870).
Two of the four documents remaining in the collection are concerned with the affairs of the Bishopric after Cosin's death and with measures taken to prevent the spread of religious sects. The last two, dated 1679 and 1686 respectively, are of a somewhat obscure and miscellaneous nature.

Letter from John Cosin to the right honourable the Lords and other Commissioners appointed by his Majesty to treat with the purchasers of bishops' lands. Cosin has not heard of any offices and royalties belonging to the bishop of Durham in the manner of Northallerton and believes that the petitioner has purchased some tenements though not at the price he claims. In regards to the lands the petitioner holds by lease from the former bishops of Durham, Cosin intends not to disturb his present possession as long he observes the terms of his leases. Cosin accuses the petitioner and others joining with him of dividing diverse lands in the manner of Allerton for their own benefit and suggests that the petitioner has destroyed a great fish pond there for his own profit, disregarding the respondent’s claim as chief lord. Cosin informed the petitioner that he could not renew his lease until the Commissioners ‘had been upon the place’ but Lassells refused the respondent’s offer to treat with the Commissioners as he might have done.

Letter from Edward Arden, London to Miles Stapylton at the Half Moon, Howden. Acknowledges his letter from York on the 12th. Continues the instructions of dealing with the dispute with Dr Broome from CLB 2, 63 - pleased to hear he will settle the accounts. Cosin is also pleased with Stapylton's negotiations with the Commissioners of Sewers. Mr Bernard should be kept on as steward of the court in Howden, Mr Delavall only having any pretence to the position if he were to live in the north and Mr Headley coming with the recommendation of Dr Broome. He should find an honest man to be under steward and not just allow Phillipps to make the appointment. Dr Broome, as Receiver, must be scrutinised to ensure the money due to the Bishop is accounted for. Notes that Charles Gerrard and his wife set out on the York coach, 15th April

Answers to the query - "Whether a Dean and Chapter are bound in law or equity to confirm all concurrent leases, which their bishop shall send to them or only such as are for the good of the bishop and not injurious to the successor". Discusses the legal statutes concerning concurrent leases, and the implications of establishing a precedent whereby the Dean and Chapter allow the Bishop concurrent leases. Concludes that the Dean and Chapter are entitled to use their discretion, and should not permit concurrent leases unless in exceptional circumstances. See also: 3, 58; 3, 59; 3, 60; 3, 61; 3, 62; 3, 63 for the debate concerning the confirmation of the concurrent lease of the Manor of Howden

Answers to the query "Whether a Dean and Chapter are bound by law or equity to confirm all patents and concurrent leases, which their bishop shall send to them or only such as are for the good of the see and not injurious to the successors". Concludes that concurrent leases should be avoided except in exceptional circumstances, both for the benefit of the leaser and the leaseholder; thus, for the sake of future succeeding Bishops the Dean and Chapter should refrain from confirming any concurrent leases of the Bishop and instead grant leases for 21 years or 3 lives.

Dean and Chapter to Bishop Cosin
Concerning the confirmation of leases”, signed John Sudbury, Dennis Grenville, Joseph Naylor, John Neile, Thomas Dalton, Richard Wrench, and Isaac Basire. Confirms their receipt and reading of the papers sent from the Bishop of Bath and Wells to John Cosin, but suggests that the case discussed in these papers is not equivalent to the ongoing dispute between the Dean and Chapter [of Durham] and John Cosin regarding the confirmation of the lease of the Manor of Howden for the third time. Revealing their opinion that the Bishop “seems to expect from us” that they are “bound to confirm from time to time” any leases presented to them, and “and told us oftentimes that we have no more power to refuse any Lease offered to us”. Advises the Dean and Chapter to follow the “resolution” that “that they shall be such as are according to the Laws of this Kingdom, and the Customs of that and other Churches”, and states that only two examples of renewed leases in the last “hundred years and upwards” could be cited as precedent. However, concludes by affirming their desire to serve the Bishop and thus their concession to his request to renew his lease of the Manor of Howden (although reminding him that his lease of the Manor of Crayke has also already been renewed), and setting two conditions: firstly, that both the Bishop and his successors should provide the money to repair the staithes and banks to the tenants; secondly, that in the future Cosin “will not take it ill” if the dean and chapter “make some difficulty in passing such things as they conceive not agreeable to that Trust which is reposed in them by the Law”.

Requests Bishop Cosin to “set down the whole state of the question in his own words” in order to “join with them in desiring the judgement of someone or more persons of honour and wisdom upon the case”, for the given reason that they desire “to gratify their present bishop in everything that is in their power, so far as they may do it with that discretion, and care of preserving that integrity which the law presumes they have”.

Letter from Charles II to Dean and Chapter of Durham. States that the Court of Howden was “lately taken away by Act of Parliament” from the Bishop of Durham [John Cosin], who thus sought “recompense” from them as his tenants will not renew their leases (which they have “held without any fine for about sixty and fourscore years”) and due to his claim to have “spent all his fund for leases in Rebuilding and repairing his Episcopal Houses”. In response to this request, Charles II thus communicates his “Warrant” to the Dean and Chapter to renew Bishop Cosin’s three leases in Gateside and Whickton, Howden, and land near Allerton and Durham (which he has already leased for 21 years) on a year-to-year basis for the remainder of his service as Bishop.

Dean and Chapter to Charles II
Certain considerations humbly offered to his Sacred Majesty by the Dean and Chapter of Dunelme to answer to his Majesty's letter to them of the 15 of March 1666 (draft). Letter in response to his correspondence to them [CLB3, 62]. Informs Charles II of their opinion that “the helps which the present Bishop hath had to bear those burdens” of which he complained to the King have “been very great”, and states their concern that the “helps” which his “successors are like[ly] to have will be very small”. Informs Charles II that Bishop Cosin has received income from expired leases, as well as from some concurrent leases which they have confirmed, and of which they believe Charles II was not notified; also advises that the tenants of whom Bishop complains still have many years left of their leases unexpired and thus cannot be reasonably expected to renew them. Also states their concern that concurrent leases will create “uncertainties” due to their creation of multiple concurrent tenants with interest in the property. Contrary to the claim which Bishop Cosin made to Charles II [CLB3, 62], informs Charles II that “we have so good reasons to believe that his receipts over and above his yearly rents, have been made great[er] then his expenses in building”. States that the three leases which Charles II has granted the warrant to renew [Gateside and Whickton, Howden, and land near Allerton and Durham] were those which they had already debated with Bishop Cosin and for which they sought outside counsel [see CLB3, 57 and 58], of which the conclusion was that concurrent leases should only be granted in extraordinary cases.

The matter of a house, involving Sir Thomas Tempest, the Dean and Chapter, Sir Gilbert and Lady Gerard, and Mr Davison. Alderman Emmerson of Newcastle and Sir John Marley and the negotaition of rents and lease terms of a property at Eastgate in Weardale.
