Magnum Repertorium
Reference: Rep. Mag.
Dates of creation: Compiled c.1462 x 1464, with many added entries down to c.1900
Extent: 56 + 159fParchment book

The Mag. Rep. is a medieval catalogue, reflecting the latest arrangement of the main classes of deeds in the cathedral priory's archive. However, it does not include deeds for the estates of the dependent priories of Coldingham and Finchale, or for those adminstered by various of the priory's obedientaries, the almoner and sacrist. These were, and are, kept separately. Yet it does contain items referring to estates administered by the chamberlain, hostiller, infirmarer and apparently feretrar.
The documents were housed in a series of boxes, each box being normally divided into four (or, less often, two) compartments. Every box, compartment and document was numbered, with documents originally being subdivided into small groups, each distinguished by a number, with each document in the group having a separate letter. The actually numbering of the boxes and compartments reflected their Latin title. So the third document of the fifth group in the second compartment in the first box of documents concerning the bishop might originally have been referenced as 2a.1e.Pont.C5. In the 18th or 19th century, the last alphanumeric combination was gradually replaced with a single serial numbering, and modern usage has stripped out the Latin abbreviation, so the example might now be 2.1.Pont.15. Both numberings are recorded in the margin of the Mag. Rep. though many documents only have the later serial sequence. There are running titles (class name, box and compartment numbers) throughout the Mag. Rep.
The Mag, Rep. was compiled as the finding aid for this system by Richard Billingham (cf. f.80r), monk of Durham and at that time chancellor of the priory, with responsibility for its archive. It also contains 15th or 16th century cross-references to the priory's cartularies and registers, indicated by a C or R as relevant, the appropriate number of dots above for the relevant volume number, and the folio number to the right. Occasionally no folio number indicates that the document was never actually copied into a cartulary. There are also occasionally some fictitiously numbered entries, which are merely cross-references to documents in other classes, whose numbers are also indicated.
The Mag. Rep. was kept up to date with additional entries down to the dissolution in 1539. Thereafter, further entries were added at various dates (including by John Cosin in the mid 17th century) down to the 19th century as other documents, medieval and later, were replaced with or more commonly added to those already listed. Over the centuries, many of the documents referred to have been lost. In the later 19th century, William Greenwell checked through the entire collection and ticked entries whose originals he had seen. There have been a few subsequent additions, and losses.

Catalogue of Finchale Muniments
Reference: Rep. Finc.
Dates of creation: [c.1527 x 1528]
Extent: 19fPaper booklet, in modern buckram covered boards

Catalogue of the charters kept at Finchale priory made by Thomas Swalwell (d. 1539); in compiling this repertory he also listed the accounts of priors of Finchale (f.1r) and halmote court-rolls down to 1527 (f.1v), which suggests that the repertory was drawn up in about 1527 or 1528. The charters are arranged topographically, alphabetically according to the name of the place involved.
The arrangement of the Finchale charters had been lost by the mid nineteenth century, when most of them were listed as Miscellaneous Charters by Joseph Stevenson, but the survival of this Finchale Repertory, taken with the references endorsed on the documents by Thomas Swalwell, enabled Canon William Greenwell to reconstruct the medieval class "Finc." during the later nineteenth century, so creating the present arrangement. Consequently almost all of the documents are now arranged as Swalwell left them, with some added, most notably all those in the final section, 1.5.Finc.1-28. Since no Finchale cartulary has survived, the entries in Swalwell's repertory are generally the only evidence for the content of documents now missing. One major exception is the group of twenty-seven indulgences listed at 3.1.Finc.31-55 of which only one, 3.1.Finc.44, is now present; twenty-four of these, together with one not recorded in the Finchale repertory (see below after 3.1.Finc.55), were printed in 1837 in The Priory of Finchale, while sixteen were listed a little later at Misc. Ch. 5900a-q.
Greenwell produced a somewhat revised version of Swalwell's repertory: he amended some of Swalwell's references, firstly by using numbers for the final element in all references, whereas Swalwell had used letters in 1.1.Finc., and secondly by starting 4.1.Finc. with 1, where Swalwell's numbering followed on from the last number in 3.1.Finc. Greenwell was presumably responsible for creating the final section, 1.5.Finc., which contains documents relating to Thorpe that have no medieval references endorsed on them, but why he left 4.Finc. unused is puzzling. He also restored to the Finchale deeds documents that he had previously misguidedly inserted in the main collection of charters and listed in the Magnum Repertorium, transferring 1.12.Spec.33-39 to 2.3.Finc., and 3.3.Ebor.47-70 to 2.2.Finc.
Inserted in a pocket inside the front cover is an inventory of the books, vestments and plate of Finchale priory, ?by Thomas Swalwell, printed in the Transactions of the Durham and Northumberland Architectural and Archaeological Society (1890-1895), p.134-141, and with a note that it was returned c.1952.
