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:

Heminbrough: Receipts, 1461-2
Thursday before Purification of B.V.M. 39 Henry VI [29 January 1461] - Michaelmas 2 Edward IV [29 Sept. 1462] Only two categories of receipt are covered: mortuaries and tithes of crops. The former are given in a single section, with heading dated as above. Tithes are treated in two blocks, the first for 39 Henry VI, the second 1 Edward IV, datings that are taken to refer to the agricultural years beginning then and so concerning the harvests in the following calendar years, 1461 and 1462.

The details, in particular names of vicars, indicate that this is a provost of Hemingbrough's account. The sum of arrears taken up at the start can be calculated from the two totals of receipt given, and the result matches the sum given in balance of account closed 12 March 1460 (Misc.Ch. 5701/4). The account covers approximately one year.

Part of articles in the case heard before the archbishop of York between King Henry III against the prior and monks of Durham over the election of William Stichill archdeacon of Worcester as bishop of Durham, being most of the evidence of the bishop of Salisbury and the first productio of the monks, comprising the testimonies of Walter of Selby clerk, [Robert] of Misterton, and [Thomas Anglicus] (part). Some later marginalia stressing what is in the text.
On the dorse are various notes summarising the points which the chapter wished to prove against the king and quoting the witness authority for each statement.

Misc.Ch. 5709a.   [9 July 1283]
Process of the election of Antony Bek as bishop of Durham, individually subscribed by 64 of the community's monks, each with his name and a sign manual.
Probably the most remarkable document now among the Chapter Muniments, not least for the fact of its survival. Drawn up in quite extraordinary circumstances (well described by C. M. Fraser, 1957, pp. 32-6), there might well have been Durham monks who have wished to see it destroyed when the dispute with Bishop Bek broke out in 1300. Two centuries later it passed through the hands of Thomas Swalwell, as his endorsement shows. In the mid nineteenth century it was presumably among the documents catalogued during the first phase of the creation of "Miscellaneous Charters", when damage from vermin and damp had probably already occurred. There is no evidence that CMF saw it when working on Bek, since she would otherwise have surely mentioned it. Before repair it was nigh on unusable, but Meryl Foster gave it her attention, to very considerable effect (see note by AJP to frontispiece of Joan Greatrex 2011). Repair was undertaken by George Peart, as part of the programme supervised by Martin Snape for the whole of the Misc.Ch. class; fortunately this was done when "sausage-skin" had become commercially available, and the policy of rerolling documents after repair using this material had been abandoned.
The significance of the document is immediately obvious. 64 monks subscribed individually to the election of Antony Bek, each in his own hand, with his own ink and his own pen, adding to each entry a sign manual, which he presumably used in other circumstances, such as the marking of platters and clothing which were washed communally, thus preventing careless treatment of these items by one monk being visited on his fellows. The document was apparently drawn up in accordance with notarial practice (`In nomine ...'), a formula, which [pace Cheney] had persisted in Durham in the framing of wills, and so, like an earlier diploma, did not require sealing; manu propria sufficed, although earlier precedents for this do not come immediately to mind, and a sign was equi-valent [NB THE HYPHEN] to what a notary would have used.
The circumstances in which the document was created are not entirely clear. The election of a new bishop of Durham following the death of Bishop Robert of Holy Island on 7 June 1283 took place on 9 July in secret. The vacancy had prompted Archbishop Wickwane to attempt to assert rights of visitation; he was stoutly resisted. The monks, presumably calculating that they would thereby be best served in resisting Wickwane, elected one of Edward I's favourite clerics, who was also from a good family. It seems likely that some monks did not endorse this course of action, and that may account for some notable absentees among the signatories. The most obvious is Richard de Hoton, whose animosity towards Bek found expression as early as 1284; if Dr Fraser correctly pointed to an impoverished background at Hutton in Cleveland as his origin, then he was a native of Wickwane's own diocese, and from a very different social stratum to Bek's.
The subscribing monks do not occur in order of seniority, and are most easily taken to have subscribed when they were not otherwise engaged, and hence added their names later than the actual election process. With the aid of the standing ultra-violet lamp they were: Richard [Claxton] prior; Henry of Stamford (714); [Ambrose] of Bamburgh (634); Henry of Horncastle; Gilbert of Sherburn (635); William de Aslakby (642); Geoffrey of [New]castle (660); William de Castro (662); Richard de Barneby (597); Robert of School Aycliffe (632); Robert of Lanchester (647); [Adam] de Boyvil (734, & so not a full monk ?); John of Haxby (584); Richard of [Otteri]ngton (673); William Cuthbert (574); Hugh of Darlington (549); Richard [of Escrick ?] prior of Finchale; William Wake (655); Adam of Corbridge (617); Richard of Durham (646); Ralph de Castro (691); Roger of Bywell (654); Stephen of Dalton (565 / 574); Ingram of Beverley (600); William of Hartlepool (618 et al.); Richard of School Aycliffe (632); Thomas of [New]castle (702); Richard of Brompton (663); Thomas of Bamburgh (698); Thomas of Durham (715); [Tho]mas of Stanhope (? = le Deveneys 599); Simon of Grimsby (720); John de se-sbi (? = Seleby 697); Thomas of Adlingfleet (706); Thomas of Westoe (707); Warner of Giggleswick (682); Ingram of Chatton (649); John de Emildon (703); William of Heworth (656); [Geoffrey] of Boston (710); Robert of Mitford (652); Reginald of B[arnby] (684); Richard of Howden (622/4); John of Hexham (724 / 716); Michael of [Chilton] (677); John of Wolviston (704); Roger of School Aycliffe (719); Thomas of Wolviston (704); Peter of Sedgefield (667); Walter of Egglescl[iffe] ( 709); Henry of Fa[ceby] (670); Simon [of Jarrow] (607); Ralph of Mordon (712); Thomas of [New]castle (702); Thomas de Aldwode (718); Adam of Norton (701); Nicholas of York (678); Roger de Castro (696); [Geoffrey of] Haxby (721); Stephen of Howden [723]; Robert of Stanley (722); A[dam] of Ellingham (725); John of Hexham (716 / 724); William of Guisborough (726).

Copy bill of complaint in chancery by John [Piers], archbishop of York, and Thomas Burton LLD in a dispute with the dean and chapter of Durham about the right to custody of the spiritualities of the see of Durham sede vacante, arising out of a vacancy of the see caused by the death of Bishop Richard Barnes [1587], in the time of the archbishop's predecessor Edwin Sandys, when Thomas Burton was appointed the archbishop's commissary to exercise the jurisdiction, but was ejected by Dean Toby Matthew and the chapter of Durham, who claimed and exercised the jurisdiction themselves: the bill alleges that, although an appeal by the dean and chapter has been decided in favour of the archbishop by the High Court of Delegates, the dean and chapter have now brought an action in the Court of Queen's Bench, whereas the question is not one for a lay court, and if pursued this action is likely to lead to the question of fact being tried by a jury in the County Palatine of Durham, where the dean and chapter have undue influence; also that the dean and chapter have taken possession of written records which would prove the archbishop's case: request is made that a subpoena be directed to Toby Matthew, dean, and the chapter of Durham to appear in chancery to answer the bill, and that an injunction be issued to them and their agents to cease proceedings in Queen's Bench
With notes in the margin for the guidance of the dean and chapter's attorney.
