The class Miscellaneous Charters was created in the mid-nineteenth century by Joseph Stevenson, in the process of cataloguing substantial portions of Durham Cathedral's medieval muniments. How exactly he proceeded is not clear, but his work did not cover major sections of medieval material, notably the documents catalogued in the late fifteenth-century Magnum Repertorium, and also almost all the accounting material. He catalogued the documents classed in the sequence of numbered Locelli, a medieval creation whose basic principle of arrangement according to subject he retained, but without preserving its details. The documents initially assigned to Miscellaneous Charters had clear topographical associations, for the arrangement evidently began with an alphabetical order of places in view, and it is uncertain whether it was originally intended to have in this class the very much more miscellaneous material, some of it post-medieval, that Stevenson went on to include; nonetheless, where he could do so, he attempted with each fresh batch of material to maintain an alphabetical order of places.
Stevenson left the arrangement of the documents catalogued in the Magnum Repertorium untouched. Despite the fact that catalogues survived, or could be reconstructed from endorsements on the documents, he re-arranged every other medieval collection of deeds, assigning the documents to Miscellaneous Charters. Subsequently, with the aid of the extant catalogues, Canon Greenwell restored what he believed to be the arrangement of the deeds of the Almoner (Elemos.), Finchale priory (Finc.), and the Sacrist (Sacr.), transferring the documents out of Miscellaneous Charters. He did not attempt the same with the Scottish material, although the catalogue in Misc.Ch. 1026 might have made this possible, and he left in Miscellaneous Charters the collections which are attested by endorsements on the documents, notably the Communar's deeds, also the deeds of the Trinity chantry and of the chantries of Bishops Skirlawe and Langley. Documents remain in Miscellaneous Charters whose endorsed medieval markings reveal that they formerly belonged in the system of locelli, or in receptacles described as cista and cophinus. Also within Miscellaneous Charters are to be found a substantial number of post-dissolution documents, most of them from the period 1540-1600. One notable medieval collection found in Miscellaneous Charters is a private fifteenth-century deposit of Claxton family deeds; these are only readily identified by the fact that they concern property and other matters with which the chapter had no connection. The same applies to a single document relating to property in Ireland, Misc.Ch. 5243, presumably deposited by its beneficiary, who never returned to collect it; there may be other, less conspicuous, examples.

Accession details

Placed in the University's care by the Dean and Chapter of Durham in 1948.
To make the catalogue of Miscellaneous Charters less bulky it was split into parts in April 2018. As the Charters do not have a single logical sequence, so the split is purely by number and does not convey any significance by the grouping:

Three separate sheets concerned with expenses, presumably from latter part of a booklet of the type used for Howden altarage accounts of 1511-2 and 1512-3 (4.1.Ebor.59 and 60).

It is clearly close in date to the accounts for 1511-2 and 1512-3, mentioning many of the same people, but is taken to be slightly later as it mentions William Baxter's wife and a man of that name was married on 14 October 1512 (4.1.Ebor.59 f.2v, line 7).

f.1v-5v   16 May 1535 - 4 June 1536
Bursar's summary account,
“Computus Officij Bursarij Monasterij Dunelm A festo Pentecostes Anno Domini Millesimo Quingentesimo Tricesimo quinto vsque idem festum Anno Domini millesimo Quingentesimo Tricesimo Sexto”. The form is very close to the Valor Ecclesiasticus of 1535 (v.301-303), but here the sections for outgoings come between temporalities in County Durham and all other sources of income, and include almost all the heads of expenditure found on a bursar's account, although not entirely in the normal order.
f.6r-8v
Blank
f.9r-v   [1540]
Rents formerly the B[ursar]'s due to the D[ean], Martinmas 1540.
“Temporalia que onerantur super B tamen soluuntur ad manus D vt patet in libro Recepte per manum suam propriam pro termino martini in Anno Domini 1540mo”.
ff.10r-17r   12 January 1553
Arrears of rents from 1542 - 1552.
“Arreragia diuersa firmariorum Balliuorum Collectorum et aliorum officiariorum De arreragiis suis debitis et non Solutis ad xijm diem Ianuarii Anno regis nuns Edwardi Sexti Sexto”. Ten annual sections, headed 35 Henry VIII - 6 Edward VI, each presumably referring to the accounting year closed at Michaelmas in the year specified.
f.18r-19v   [c.1535-1539]
Priors bill for small purchases in London,
Marginal notes against entries: bursar, warden [of Durham College Oxford], and prior of Finchale indicate a date before the surrender of the monastery on 31 December 1539.
[This item is a separate bifolium, now bound up with material ranging in date from 1535 to 1556. The hand is very similar to those found in the financial records of the cathedral priory during the last decade of its existence. The endorsements, f.19v, are “billa domini prioris £8 13s 7d” and “stuff bought at london”.]

Bursar's expenses, fragment.
Some of the entries here for spices are the same as those on DCD Bursar's Book M f.173v-176v.
f.24r-v   [c.1540]
[Sacrist's] rents in Durham, fragment. The first part, from which the verso continues, is missing. Each entry gives the name or description of the tenant and the rent; some indicate the nature of the holding. All the holdings appear to have belonged to the estate of the monastery's sacrist, and the amounts given are the annual rents, but the list is selective, not complete, and so may be a list of arrears (Sacrist's Rental 1500). One holding, Allergate north side 5 (f.24v), is described as last in the hands of Thomas Blunt, who occurs as tenant in 1529 (Crossgate Court Book f.205v); as the sacrist's property formed part of the endowment of the new cathedral foundation, the list may be later than the surrender of the monastery on 31 December1539, and the tenants' names do not diverge significantly from those in the Receiver's Book for 1542-1543 (Rec. Bk. 2). The streets covered are part of Allergate, Crossgate, Framwelgate and Claypath.

Disbursements, Martinmas term 1540 (and f.30r-33r below)

f.26r-27v   1556
[Receipts from] trees felled in Aycliffe Park.
“Wooyd that was delyueryt fourth off Akeleff park in the zere off ourer lord god M.D.lvj”. The entries, each giving a name and number of trees, are arranged in sections by township; calculations of receipts are added at the end.
f.28r-v   9 June 1538 - 25 May 1539
Summary almoner's account.
“Computus officij elemosinarii Dunelm a Festo pentecostes anno domini millesimo quingentesimo tricesimo octauo vsque Idem Festum anno domini Millesimo quingentesimo tricesimo nono”. The form is comparable to f.1v-5v above, and hence to the Valor Ecclesiasticus of 1535; here, as against a normal almoner's account, various receipts are omitted, and a brief section for fees and stipends replaces the sections for gifts and for pensions.
