Bertram Surtees Raine

The thirty seven manuscript volumes listed here were once part of the library of Bertram Surtees Raine who lived at Gainford, in the house bequeathed to him by Alice Edleston, from the time of his retirement to his death in 1971. Bertram Surtees Raine was descended from a branch of the Raine family which came from Barnard Castle and also, through his father's mother, from the Sherwood family of Snow Hall in the parish of Gainford. An ardent genealogist, Raine collected information about the two families and was also interested in their connections with their distant cousin, the historian of Durham, Robert Surtees of Mainsforth (1779-1834). Several members of the two families, notably Thomas Sherwood of Snow Hall (1769-1830), Crosier Raine of the Inner Temple (1772-1838) and Thomas Surtees Raine of Hurworth (1776-1845) had shared their cousin's enthusiasm for antiquarian and genealogical pursuits and assisted him by supplying information and introducing him to new contacts. Thomas Surtees Raine also contributed a number of drawings to the History of Durham .
PEDIGREE OF THE SURTEES, SHERWOOD AND RAINE FAMILIES
The following pedigree aims to show the connections between the three families and does not include all the information that is available. Comprehensive pedigrees of the numerous branches of the Surtees Family can be found in Records of the Family of Surtees, 1925, by Sir Herbert Conyers Surtees. Unpublished pedigrees of the Sherwood and Raine families are among Bertram Surtees Raine's loose papers in Durham County Record Office (D/X 332).

Contents

The first nine volumes listed here are of particular importance as they contain Robert Surtees' working notes for the History. They are large folio volumes with transcripts and extracts from all the written sources on which he drew: the Heraldic Visitations of the northern counties, Inquisitions post mortem, probate and diocesan records, parish registers, private deeds and correspondence etc. Some of this material was copied for him but much of it is in his own hand. These volumes and a volume of his poetry (No. 10) were described in the Memoir of his life published by the Surtees Society 24, 204-214, and were sold soon after his death, along with other books in the library at Mainsforth, in order to pay his debts. Many of them were purchased by friends and members of his family and some sixty or seventy years after his death Brigadier General Sir Herbert Conyers Surtees (1858-1933), a descendant of the Redworth branch of the Surtees family, gathered them together and restored them to the library at Mainsforth which he inherited on the death of his father, Charles Freville Surtees in 1906.
The great majority of the volumes listed here bear ownership marks, inscriptions bookplates or stickers, of Sir Herbert Conyers Surtees; and it is likely that many of them had previously belonged to Robert Surtees. The 17th century armorials and copies of heraldic visitations as well as the diary of Jacob Bee (1636-1711) had probably been in the library at Mainsforth for many years, whereas the journal of Newby Lawson alias Lowson (c.1755-1853) and volumes containing material relating to the Surtees family and pedigrees may well have been acquired by Sir Herbert himself.
Bertram Surtees Raine did not grow up in the county of Durham as his father was Rector of South Witham in Lincolnshire and there was no longer any family connection with the county, only his father's memories of childhood at Snow Hall. In 1926 however, he was appointed headmaster of Ragworth Hall Kindergarten and Preparatory School, later known as Red House School, in Norton, and soon made himself known to Sir Herbert Conyers Surtees. He was invited to Mainsforth and became a close friend, not only of the Brigadier but also of other members of the family. After Sir Herbert's death in 1933 his widow, Lady Surtees, consulted Raine over the disposal of the books and manuscripts at Mainsforth and it was probably about this time that the volumes in this collection came into Raine's possession.
In addition to the volumes from Mainsforth the collection includes a small number of manuscripts given to Raine by Alice Edleston of Gainford. The friendship between their two families went back many years to the time when her father, Joseph Edleston, had been Vicar of Gainford while his grandfather, William Surtees Raine, was bringing up his family of twelve children at Snow Hall in the same parish. The most notable volumes in this group are No. 18 entitled “Dunelm et Ebor”, an alphabetical compendium of genealogical and parish information which may once have belonged to Robert Surtees, and No. 25, J. R. Walbran's notes for his Antiquities of Gainford which was eventually published in 1846.
At the end of the list are four notebooks (Nos. 33-36) compiled by Bertram Surtees Raine himself. These contain transcripts of original documents and monumental inscriptions, notes and press cuttings relating to the Raine, Sherwood and Surtees families. Further transcripts and the originals of much of this material are to be found among Raine's loose papers which were deposited in Durham County Record Office by his daughters soon after his death (CRO D/X 332). The volumes were set aside to be sold and are being purchased by Durham University Library as they become available.
