Title: Durham Bishopric Halmote Court Records: Court and miscellaneous books
Dates of creation: predominantly 16th - 20th century, with copies of earlier material
Extent: 39 metres
Held by: Durham University Library, Archives and Special Collections
Origination: records of the Halmote Court, which administered the copyhold land and the tenants thereof belonging to the Bishopric of Durham, located mainly in Co. Durham but also in Northumberland and Yorkshire between about 1500 and 1952 when the the Court's office was finally closed.
Language: English; Latin.

Further information on the Bishopric Halmote Court and its records is included within the collection level description.
The work of the Halmote Court was mainly in transferring copyhold property from tenant by means of surrender and admittance. These transactions appear in the Halmote Court Books, and the original surrenders and the enrolments in the Court Books form the bulk of the Halmote Court Records. The majority of enquiries are either about copyhold tenements, necessitating the use of the Halmote Court Books (listed here), or about inclosure awards (listed under DHC 6).

Contents and arrangement

The Halmote Court books have been arranged as follows.
DHC 1/I-III: Court books, 1519-1925. 302 vols
From 1519-1720 (DHC 1/I) the court proceedings for most manors were enrolled roughly chronologically as the court went round the estates, in a single court book. From 1720-1925 most proceedings (DHC 1/II) were enrolled topographically under divisions (Auckland, Chester-le-Street, Darlington, Easington, Houghton-le-Spring, Lanchester, Stockton and Wolsingham), each division having a separate court book. Each division encompassed several townships, some a considerable distance from the one after which the division was named. From various dates, however, certain manors had their own individual court books (DHC 1/III) - Bedlington (the only manor north of the Tyne where the bishop held a halmote court) from 1721, Evenwood from 1909, Gateshead from 1703, Middleham from 1909 and Whickham from 1585. The latter series of court books also covers Bishop Wearmouth Rectory from 1579: this had not belonged to the bishop of Durham, but was administered by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners from the Durham office.
DHC 1/IV: Stewards minute books, 1682-1819. 21 vols
These minute books were used at halmote court meetings on circuit (with headings prepared in advance and alterations and additions made on the day), and also later in compiling the formal enrolments of proceedings there in the Halmote Court rolls. They record details of the dates, places and holders of halmote courts, the juries for presentments and actions (usually the same), the names of greeves and collectors, proclamations (calling for heirs to prove their title to holdings, and naming trustees), actions between tenants, and miscellaneous other non-standardised information. They do not, however, contain drafts of surrenders or admissions (except for rare notes). By the period they cover many copyhold land transactions were complicated, and were more conveniently arranged out of court in the office of the steward or his deputy.
DHC 1/V: Call books, mid 17th century - ca. 1891. 131 vols
These provide a key from call numbers (used from around the mid-18th century to identify particular plots of copyhold land) to transactions in the court rolls relating to a particular call or plot. For annotated maps on which call numbers can be located topographically see DHC 11/I and III. The earlier call books, prior to about 1760, generally contain little more than lists of tenants names, with, when a property changed hands, the name of the former tenant crossed out and that of the new tenant substituted; marks in the margins sometimes provide a key (usable with some difficulties) to help locate entries for related transactions in the court books.
DHC 1/VI: Rental registers for the four Co. Durham wards (Chester, Darlington, Easington and Stockton), 1804-1857. 84 vols
These continue the rentals in DHC 4. The series for Easington and Stockton is combined.
DHC 1/VII: Index and alphabet books, 1579-1925. 18 vols
An alphabetical means of reference to the names of people surrendering and being admitted in the court rolls of corresponding date; usable with some difficulties
DHC 1/VIII: Registers of post-1925 transactions (mortgages, conveyances, releases, etc.). 16 vols
DHC 1/M: Miscellaneous books, 16th-20th century. 97 vols
DHC 1/M 1-8a: Registered copies of inclosure awards; (for other inclosure material see DHC 6)
DHC 1/M 9-17: Notitia books of plans and surveys concerning leasehold land; these tie in with Notitia in the Durham Bishopric Estates, Church Commission deposit (CCB)
DHC 1/M 18-28: Copies of tithe awards and apportionments
DHC 1/M 29-37: Halmote Court office ledgers, 1927-1939
DHC 1/M 38-44: Material concerning compensation on enfranchisement (i.e. conversion of plots to freehold), 1929-1937
DHC 1/M 45-50: Rentals for wards 1882, and various rentals 1856-1927
DHC 1/M 51-62: Cash books and account books, 1785-1935
DHC 1/M 63-96: Miscellaneous volumes, including rentals, surveys, inquisitions post mortem, inventories of many sorts, charters, presentments, inclosure awards, letter-books, enfranchisements, plans and valuations etc. (sometimes original, sometimes copies), 16th-20th century


Custodial history

Some numbers (five or six figure, normally in brackets) were given to the documents when registered in the accession registers of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England (now the Church Commission). Where no such numbers appear the documents were never so registered.

Mickleton and Spearman MS. 96 Item 2 is a series of alphabetical indexes to the Halmote Court books at different periods. One is temp. Bishop Skirlaw, another Wolsey, but most are Elizabeth I.
The Skirlaw part does not relate to HC Bk. Durh. 3/13 which has contemporary foliation. Most of these indices are to Durham Chancery Rolls in the PRO, where entries are often numbered. The HC indices in M&S 96/2 ff. 30-71v appear to be as PRO index 10151. Most Durham HC Bks have no contemporary pagination and are unindexed pre c.1584.

Halmote Court books (DHC 1/I-III)
All queries about copyhold tenements are best answered from the Halmote Court Books and not from the original surrenders, many of which are either lost or so badly preserved as to be impossible to consult. Up to 1720 the method of enrolling is chronological (DHC 1/I). After 1720 each division has its own series of court books going up to 1925 when copyhold tenure was abolished and the Court began to wind up its business by drawing up compensation agreements turning copyholds into freeholds (DHC 1/II). Each copyhold tenant has what is known as a "call number", usually abbreviated to, for example, "c.94" and on each transfer of property an entry was made in the appropriate Call Book. (Call Books are listed with Miscellaneous Books). Theoretically, the history of a copyhold tenement ought to be traceable back to the 17th century but this would certainly be extremely difficult and time consuming . The expansion of, for example, Sunderland and Stockton in the late 19th and early 20th centuries led to a multiplicity of calls as large tenements were split up.
Tracing entries for particular individuals and families: From 1720 each volume has an index of persons surrendering and persons admitted. For volumes up to 1720 see the index and alphabet books in DHC 1/VII.
Tracing entries for particular townships: From 1522-1720 each volume of the court books has an index of townships. A key to the division under which a township is enrolled from 1720 is appended to the guide “How to trace the history of property once part of the Durham bishopric estates”. A card index, compiled by Dr. Ritchie in the 1960's, is also available, covering certain townships.
Tracing entries for particular holdings: From about the middle of the 18th century the bishop's officials introduced a system of call numbers to identify particular plots of copyhold land; see DHC 1/V (Call books) and DHC 11/I and III (annotated maps: 6" maps have been digitised and are available online). Prior to 1720 see the alphabet books in DHC 1/VII. Where the parties to the first surrender after 1720 can be traced from the later records, it may be possible using the name of the surrenderer to work backwards into the pre-1720 alphabet books.
These Court Rolls or Court Books of the Durham Halmote Court fall into three groups of dates, 1519-1720 (DHC 1/I), 1720-1925 (DHC 1/II) and 1579-1925 (DHC 1/III). These groups are the result of a change in administrative procedure in 1720. Before 1720 the Halmote (Manorial) Court proceedings for the most of the Bishop of Durham's manors were contained in one series of Court Books (indexed by place name), arranged chronologically and topographically as the peripatetic court visited the episcopal manors regularly holding a series of head counts dealing with the group of townships within each manor. This became cumbersome and in 1720 the manors were arranged in eight divisions (of one manor or two), each division having its own series of Court Books indexed by tenants' names. However some manors were given their own series of Court Books at dates other than 1720 and those from the third group 1579-1925.
The land transactions were written in latin until 1733 (except in the Commonwealth) but even before then, not all the other business of the courts was recorded in latin. The Durham Halmote Court archive is possibly the largest in England.

DHC 1/I: Halmote Court Books (all divisions)
Dates of creation: 1519-1720 Before 1720 places at which head counts were most usually held were Auckland, Bedlington, Bishop Middleham, Chester-le-Street, Darlington, Easington, Evenwood, Houghton-le-Spring, Lanchester, Stockton and Wolsingham.
Stewards:
Sir Thos. Tempest, patent 3 September 1524. (CCB 205/244306)
Robt. Meynell, patent 12 March 1546/7. (CCB 205/244310)

The books are individually indexed according to place.
An MS. index to this section was created in the 1950's by Dr Ritchie, listing location, date and steward of each court.

DHC1/I/19a   26 September 1549
Fragment from Durham Bishopric Halmote Court, covering Cassop and Easington. The month of the year is doubtful. The letters "bris" are illegible with what could be a minim preceding them. Halmote Court Book 20 begins in May 1549 and ends in July 1549. There are entries for Cassop and Easington in the July courts, but there was only one admission, at Easington. Halmote Court Book 19, several booklets bound together, runs from May 1548 - June 1553 and folios 52 - 75 covers 9 October 1549 - 4 February 1550. (The previous booklet deals with the previous year of Tunstall's pontificate.) This October - February booklet appears to be complete, the binding is firm, no folios appear to be missing, the probably contemporary folio numbers are a complete series and entries for Cassop and Easington are not missing. This folio must therefore belong to the month of September. The length of the word fits the space also. The line of the margin where the word must begin must be well to the left, as the word below it, before "Epi" is bound to be "Dunelm". The places mentioned are Easington and Cassop - the heading only partly legible, but the village of Easington is mentioned in the entries. The jurors of the other places match these for Cassop in July and November 1549.

DHC1/I/20a   Summer 1551
Fragment, found in Durham Bishopric Halmote Court Book 18 and appears, from the discolouration, to be part of the front page of the Halmote Court book. The first entry mentions the date, the [Inven]tion of the Holy Cross next following. The second entry mentions a tenure from the Invention of the Holy Cross --1551, (August 5th). The date of this session of the Halmote Court is therefore very probably the summer of 1551. The place cannot be identified from the names of the jury, as only part of the name appears on this fragment "-icson". There are mentions of two legible holdings - one each in the first and last entries. The first is "-oupburn" or -hopeburn. The halmote court area richest in names with this ending is the Wolsingham-Stanhope area. The name of Emerson, mentioned in this entry, is also very common in this area. The other identifiable tenement is "Wysell" in the last entry, mentioned as once belonging to Christopher Merley. The only similar name in this area (according to Mawer) is Wiserley near Wolsingham, mentioned as "Wyshill" in Hatfield's survey. One Christopher Merley certainly had copyhold interests in Wolsingham at this time as appears in Halmote Court Books 17 and 19, ff. 39 and 47v. Respectively. (Merley had interests also in Bishop Auckland and Evenwood.) The second entry mentions Gabriel and Agnes Anderson as belonging to Berwick. The Bishop had no copyhold land in that area and as the Andersons had interests also in Bondgate in Auckland, (Halmote Court Book 18, f22v. 1547) the mention of Berwick is misleading. The third entry ends with the phrase "per plegium Alexandri Dicson et Christophori Blirt[horne]." In all the cases checked the men who give pledge, in this context, as to what are the services attached to a tenure, they are members of the jury for that session of the court. These two appear in Wolsingham jury solidly in every halmote court session in the court books in this department from May 1544 to November 1551 and one or other of them in many sessions before and after. It is probably part of Dicsons name which is the first word on this fragment. The Halmote Courts held in April and May 1551 did not visit the Weardale area (Halmote Court Book 19, f.100-121). The next court held in the Wolsingham area was in November too late for the dates mentioned in this fragment. It is virtually certain, therefore, that this entry refers to Wolsingham in summer of 1551.

DHC1/I/34a   Summer/Autumn 1579
Fragment from a court book recording transactions of the Durham Bishopric Halmote Court. There are two dates mentioned in the fragment. The most obvious is that of the audit of 26 November 1579. The other appears under the presentments for Bondgate in Auckland, mentioning the illegal demise of land by Richard Archerawe from Michaelmas II Elizabeth, 1569. The book must therefore have been compiled between about Michaelmas 1569 at the earliest and November 1579 at the latest. The auditor's date is a useful one. In Halmote Court Book 35 transactions in October and November 1580 were audited in November 1580. In Halmote Court Book 34 transactions in April, May and October 1578 were audited in November 1578. This suggests that transactions audited 1579 took place in 1579, but auditors dates of 1582 and 1583 in Book 35 show that auditing was not necessarily done promptly. There is another piece of evidence to suggest 1579. In Book 34 f.251v., October 1578, there appears in the list of those taking the oath of loyalty, in Bondgate Darlington, to the new Bishop Barnes, the name of Laurence Lockwood. In this fragment appears the first proclamation that his heirs should claim their inheritance. In Book 35 f.12v. Isabella, his widow was admitted on 25 October 2 Elizabeth, 1580. Lockwood's will (Register V f.94v.) was made on 9 July 1579 and proved on 23 December 1579. The sessions of the Halmote Court recorded on this sheet must therefore belong to the period between 9 Julv 1579 when Lockwood was "sicke of bodye" and 26 November 1579 when it was audited. The places mentioned: Coatham Mundeville, Brafferton, Bondgate in Darlington, and Blackwell.

The last folio was found among the mixed loose folia in No. 98. It is headed Bondgate in Auckland and poses the question of whether a copyholder's widow, Elizabeth W.[sic.] loses her widow right to her husband's land [Anth. W.] by failing to come into court at the third proclamation although her son Ch. [sic.] had claimed in his own right. The case is not dated or the surname given. Among the Church Commission miscellanea in Box 218 - no.220474 there is a note of this same case. The paper is endorsed "The estate of the Wrens Copihold at B.Awkland. 8 March 1600".
In the series of Halmote Court Books there are court books, nos. 50 and 51, for October 1600 and for April - May 1601. There can have been no halmote courts held in the interim as the proclamations to heirs follow consecutively, e.g. in Book 50, f.1, Newtoncap, appears the first call to the heirs of Janet Tailboies and in Book 51, f.3 the second call to the same heirs appears. The entry for Bondgate in Auckland is not missing from the April - May court book so this folio therefore cannot be a page missing off the front of book 51 and referring to any earlier days on which the session might have begun the previous month March 1600/1. Nor do the water stains on the paper match. The date is therefore perhaps that on which the case was considered, a date one would expect to be reasonably soon after the widow's failure to claim. Looking back through the court books to No. 43, for April 1597, f.30(245), the relevant entry appears. The entry states that on the this call to the heirs of Anthony Wren, Charles Wren came and claimed his inheritance, but the widow, Elizabeth, did not come to claim her right according to the custom of the court.
The folio, if it belongs to a court book at all, must belong to one of nos. 44-50 inclusive. The folio is dirty on one side, showing it as the outside of a booklet. The lack of proper headings shows it is a back page not a front one and the blankness of the clean and inner sheet shows this entry as not an integral part of the Bondgate entry but an additional memorandum later in the book. It remains therefore to find the book between 44-50 where the back page is missing and the water stains match those on this sheet. This is therefore the final folio of book 45 and from the words scored out it appears also to be the draft of the note of the case from the Church Commission Miscellanea.

C. Evenwood Before 1720 Evenwood is included with the general Court Books. In the first Court Book for the Auckland Division (1720-34) Evenwood occurs regularly. At the very beginning of the book the court meets at Bishop Auckland and deals with the following places, recording them in the following order:
Newton Cap, Escomb, Middridge, Heighington, Byers Green, Coundon, Redworth, Bondgate in Auckland, Killerby, Evenwood, West Auckland.
By 1721 the order has changed in that Redworth has moved to a position between Middridge and Heighington in the list; this order of place-names seems to have been regarded as the standard or proper order, as it recurs again and again, though occasionally jumbled and often incomplete, since Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland very soon develop a tendency to be regarded as in some way separate: the first sign of this tendency is in October 1722, when there was a session of the court at Evenwood. The record of this session lists the places dealt with as Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland, in that order. By 1723 it seems to be becoming accepted that one has separate court sessions in the division, one session at Evenwood (dealing with Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland and recording them in that order) and one session at Bishop Auckland (dealing with the remainder of the division, and usually listing the places dealt with in the standard order). In April 1725 there is a record of a Bishop Auckland session which has the list of place-names jumbled, but Evenwood continues on its own with Killerby and West Auckland. For several years after this the Bishop Auckland sessions, while listing the court members from the various places in the proper order of their townships, show a tendency to jumble the place-names in the records of admissions. In 1729 the Evenwood sessions also begin to show this tendency, although they still have a number of meetings in the records of which the names are not jumbled (it isn't so easy to jumble a list of 3 names)
In 1735 the lists of sessions at both Bishop Auckland and Evenwood are back in the standard order.
In April 1740 there was a session at West Auckland, dealing with West Auckland only and leaving the Evenwood session with only Killerby and Evenwood to look after. In April 1741 and May 1742 West Auckland was once again dealt with at the Evenwood session, together with Killerby and Evenwood. In October 1800 there was a session at Evenwood (the record says "at Evenwood for the manor of Evenwood and by adjournment thence to West Auckland, parcel of and within the said manor"), dealing with Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland. In 1809 the Evenwood sessions are still adjourning to West Auckland and are dealing with Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland. At this period (1801-9) the Bishop Auckland sessions continue to deal with their usual places, listing them in the proper order.
In the Court Book for the Auckland Division for the years 1889-98 there are copies (folio 298 and thereabouts) of a couple of indentures that are mentioned in admissions and that the people concerned with them are said to have asked to have put on the court rolls of the Manor of Evenwood. Although no particular search has been made for other instances of this sort of thing, no other instances of this have been noticed in any other Court Books, but these entries do look at first glance very much like entries of admissions.
Court Book II.A.19, labelled "Auckland 1907-8", has a record of a session at Bishop Auckland in 1907: this session seems to have been willing to deal with business from anywhere in the division, although not all the places in the division are in fact mentioned. In 1908 business is being done not only at Bishop Auckland but also out of court at (for places in the list formerly dealt with at the Bishop Auckland sessions) Durham and Newcastle, and (for places in the list formerly dealt with at Evenwood) Durham and Sunderland. No business in this book seems to have been dealt with at Evenwood.
Court Book II.A.20 is labelled "Bondgate in Auckland 1909-12". Business concerning the places in the list formerly dealt with at Bishop Auckland sessions is recorded as being done out of court at Bishop Auckland, Darlington, Coundon and Corbridge. The places formerly dealt with at Evenwood sessions are absent. Court Books II.A.21 (1913-6) and II.A.22 are both labelled "Bondgate in Auckland", but II.A.23 (1921-5) is labelled "Auckland". The places formerly dealt with at the Evenwood sessions are absent from these volumes. In these volumes business is recorded as being transacted out of court at Durham, Bishop Auckland, Bedale (Yorkshire), Darlington, Clacton-on-Sea and Birkenhead.
After 1908 business concerning the Manor of Evenwood is recorded in the two Court Books listed below (III.C.12 and III.C.13). In these volumes is business concerning Evenwood and West Auckland (apparently no business concerning Killerby; the volume of Killerby business seems to be very small throughout the period 1720-1925) is recorded as being transacted out of court at Bishop Auckland, Toft Hill, Cockfield, North Walsham (Norfolk), Darlington and Durham.
Call Books
Nos. V.A.3-9, entered below amongst the call books, were clearly known as "Bondgate in Auckland" in the Halmote Court Office. (It appears as if to the Halmote Court officials "Auckland" meant the whole division, including Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland, and "Bondgate in Auckland" meant the whole division except Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland.) These Call Books deal with the places formerly dealt with at Bishop Auckland, listing them in the standard order (Newton Cap, Escomb, Middridge, Redworth, Heighington, Byers Green, Coundon, Bondgate in Auckland).
Nos. V.A.34-9, entered below amongst the call books under Evenwood, were known as "Evenwood and West Auckland" in the Halmote Court Office; each volume deals with Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland, in that order.
V.A.81 is a peculiar volume containing first calls from numerous places in the Stockton and Darlington divisions, and then, in this order, Killerby, Evenwood, West Auckland, Newton Cap, Escomb, Middridge, Redworth and Heighington.
V.B.1, labelled "Bondgate in Auckland", lists calls from all the places in the list normally dealt with at the Bishop Auckland sessions, getting the order "correct".
V.B.2-6 all deal with some or other of the places dealt with at the Bishop Auckland sessions.
V.B.14 (dated 1787 and calling itself "Evenwood Call-Book") deals with Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland in that order.
V.B.15 (dated 1809 and calling itself "Evenwood and West Auckland Call Book") deals with Killerby, Evenwood and West Auckland in that order.

DHC 1/V: Call Books
Dates of creation: ca.1660-1842
In two series, A and B. Call Books A contains Calls up to 1809, B later ones, although they do overlap
These volumes have been microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, and digital copies derived from the microfilms are available at their familysearch website. When accessing images on familysearch, note:

Call Books A
Dates of creation: mid 17th century - 1809
These books, especially the early ones, generally contain little more than lists of names of the Bishop's tenants. When a property changed hands the name of the former tenant is often crossed out and that of the new tenant substituted. Letters of the alphabet which often appear against a person's name in the early 18th century call books refer to the court books of the halmote court, which from 1695-1719 are marked with a letter of the alphabet at the beginning of transactions for each half-year, e.g. April 1706 is marked 'A', September 1706 'B', May 1707 'C', September 1707 'D'. At the end of the alphabet the next year begins with 'A' again.
In the 1760's the entries in the call books become more detailed and between 1766 and 1768 the system of call numbers becomes generally established, though they do not appear in the Bedlington call books until 1776. In several cases, e.g. Auckland, Wolsingham, Easington, the entries in the last call book in series A continue into the early 19th century when they are superseded by series B. The close relationship between series A and B is further shown by the fact that in several cases the last volume of series A was copied and becomes the first volume of series B - e.g. Evenwood, Houghton, Darlington.
The Bedlington call books series A contain lists of freeholders, leaseholders and copyholders, and also lists of officers of the Bedlington court. Volume no. V 10 contains a list of fees for the Bedlington court, which incidentally indicates some of the customs of the manor (fo. 10). A fee of 2d. was to be paid for entering a new tenant's name in the call book.

Whickham
Five books are described as Whickham Call Books. The first of these (DHC1/V/B/42, with a Halmote Court Office label calling it "Whickham Court and Call Roll from 1703 to 1716 No.1") looks at first glance like a Court Book, but instead of records of admittances it contains lists of tenants' names. The next three "Whickham Call Books" (DHC1/V/B/43-45, covering between them the period 1719 to 1842, with a gap between 1780 and 1782) are of the same nature as DHC1/V/B/42. It seems clear that what the Halmote Court staff for Whickham in the 18th and early 19th centuries meant by "Call Roll" was not a list of copyhold properties but a list of copyhold tenants.
The last of the five books called Whickham Call Books is DHC1/V/B/46B. It is a perfectly normal Call Book, listing 699 calls and containing notes of surrenders and admittances from about 1820 to 1925 and later. It also notes the extinguishment of manorial incidents on many properties. See under DHC1/V/B/46A for notes on a related item.

DHC1/V/B/46A    19th-20th cent.
Unbound loose sheets. Calls 1-626.
DHC1/V/B/46A is physically odd, in that its entries are written across sheets about 17" wide and 13" high; these sheets are in a pile, with the sheets bearing the lowest Call Numnbers at the bottom of the pile, and the pile is folded down the middle.
This "book" has a fairly close relationship with DHC1/V/B/46B. The two books deal with roughly the same properties and in something like the same order: one and the same property may have two Call Numbers of which the one given in book 46B may differ from that given in the other book 46A by as little as two or three or as much as 20 or 30. Book 46B gives for each property (except a few at the beginning of the book) not only the Call Number appropriate to its position in 46B but also, in brackets (sometimes in pencil but more usually in ink and in the hand responsible for the other Call Numbers the Call Number given to the property in 46A. Entries in 46A are sometimes longer (listing admittances as early as 1801) than in 46B, but for the Call Numbers above about 460 the entries are in the hand responsible for most of 46B and are of the same length as those in 46B, though neither book seems a verbatim copy of the other. 46A stops at Call Number 626, and the highest Call Number that 46B has in brackets is 629. Notes of extinguishing of manorial incidents are commoner in 46B, and such notes of extinguishment in 46A are in manuscript (not rubber-stamped) and refer to deeds of enfranchisement dated before 1926.
A little information about the relationship between Call Books 46A and 46B can be obtained from the Whickham Court Books. Such Call Numbers as are given (always in pencil and in the margin) in the Court Book for 1792-1812 are the same as those used in Call Book 46A. The same is true of the Court Books for 1812-1828 and 1844-1854. In the Court Book for 1878-1892, and in that for 1892-1900, the Call Numbers, though now appearing regularly, are still written in pencil in the margin. Most properties to which admittances are recorded have only one number so written, this being the number given in Call Book 46A. In the margin beside some admittances two Call Numbers are written: sometimes one is written smaller than the other (usually the number given in 46B), sometimes one is in brackets (usually the number in 46A), and sometimes the two Call Numbers are written like a large fraction (e.g. 359 over 379, with the number above the line usually the one given in 46B). In general, one and the same property is very likely to have a higher Call Number given to it in 46A than 46B.
In the Court Book for 1901-1908 the Call Numbers are written in ink as an integral part of the copy of the admittance. One Call Number is given for each property, and this number is the one given in Call Book 46A. It is worth noting that on folio 188r of the 1901-1908 Whickham Court Book, where a property whose Call Number was 507 is mentioned (the date is 23 November 1906), a pencil note above the Call Number reads "now 494", and 46B gives this property the Call Number 494. In the Court Books for 1909-1916 and 1917-1925, in both of which all the matter, including the Call Numbers, is printed, the Call Numbers in use are still those given in 46A.

DHC 1/VII: Index and Alphabet Books
Dates of creation: 1594-1925
These books provide an alphabetical means of reference to the halmote court books of corresponding dates, and is chiefly needed for the period before 1720 (when the court books in DHC 1/I do not include name indexes). The series starts in 1594 but there is a gap between 1597 and 1607.
Within the alphabet books, names of tenants are listed under their initial letter, in (approximate) date or court book order. Entries generally give both the name of the tenant being indexed, plus the other party to the transaction (or for properties that are being inherited, the name of the copyholder who has died). But note that where multiple tenants are being admitted, sometimes the first one only is indexed.
The folio references in the index and alphabet books refer to the old foliation in the halmote court books (not the numbers in pencil). Several volumes of these books were numbered continuously e.g. the three books between 1660 and 1674 are continuously numbered from 1 to 1813, and the seven books between 1674 and 1705 from 1 to 2165. Since the index and alphabet book for the period 1660-1706 covers all ten volumes the numbers 1-1813 appear twice in it for different dates. The dates are not always indicated in the index and alphabet books but, since the names are arranged chronologically, it is in practice easy enough to tell from the preceding and following numbers within each letter to which section of the court books any given folio reference relates.
These volumes have been microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, and digital copies derived from the microfilms are available at their familysearch website. When accessing images on familysearch, note:

Award (12 May 1809 ) for Framwellgate and Witton Gilbert.
These claims put to the arbitration of Hoar show that people living anywhere in Chester Manor thought they might have a valid claim to common (or in this case the intercommon shared with Framwellgate) in a different township in the same manor from the one in which they lived - G. Askew did in fact. His allotment on Findon Hill (Witton Gilbert) was in respect of Houlmires at Plawsworth. Again, as the Act dealt with land in more than one township, people who knew they had premises with rights in one township, thought these rights might apply to the other land with which the Act was dealing. Hoar had to spell out clearly that premises in Witton Gilbert did not confer any rights on common in Framwellgate.
