Consistory Court Causes and General Records
Reference: DDR/EJ/CC Much of the conservation work for the volumes listed below was carried out under the HEFCE-funded ('Follett') DDR project, 1995-1999. After these volumes had been repaired but before rebinding, they were generally microfilmed, as noted within the detailed lists below.

Consistory Court Acts
Reference: DDR/EJ/CCA The act books should be used in conjunction with the deposition books and cause papers:
DDR/EJ/CCD/1: Deposition books, 1565-1631
DDR/EJ/CCD/3: Cause papers, 1637-1638, 1678, 1716-1868


Consistory court act books (main series)
Reference: DDR/EJ/CCA/1
Dates of creation: 1531-1854
Extent: 32 volumes
Registers of mainly civil cases and criminal cases brought by the judge at the promotion of others (plenary jurisdiction)
Until ca.1579 and from ca.1672 this series also includes criminal cases brought by the judge of his own accord ('ex officio mero'). From the mid-19th century onward, certain other business of the court besides suits is recorded, sometimes including testamentary business such as appointments of guardians, probates and administrations, etc.
Formerly referenced as DDR/vols.III/1-32
GBV/vol. 1: Gibson volumes, 1569-1576, 1650-1706
Volume includes certain acts of the consistory court of Durham, ca.1650-1706. The major part of this volume is on microfilm number 83.
Durham Chapter Library: Sharp MS 110, ff.179-193, 1662

DDR/EJ/CCA/1/1   July 1531-October 1538
Includes criminal cases 'ex officio mero', depositions, and probates and administrations.
Originally labelled “Acts 1531-1544”. Described as 1532-1544 in Craster, Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne (3rd series, number 5, 1912)
. Listed as 1531-1544 in a typescript list ca.1950.
This volume may originally have consisted of several smaller books (see especially the evidence of separate foliation of individual gatherings at the bottom right-hand corner of some of the leaves). The binding, however, evidently disintegrated early, and the leaves fell into confusion. The foliation in ink at the top of the leaves, although early, was clearly done after they had already been disarranged.
Folios rearranged in their correct order, using the evidence of dates and joined leaves, June 1958. This left six gatherings of various numbers of leaves (of which the second and fifth have now been divided into two in rebinding); others appear to have been lost at an early date. The following leaves were removed at this date:
Nine leaves removed to constitute DDR/EJ/CCA/3/1 (acts before a Commissary for Northumberland, 1542-1544)
Loose depositions removed to constitute DDR/EJ/CCD/1/1.
Other loose depositions removed to keep with DDR/EJ/CCA/1/2.

Repaired and rebound by T. Cotton, August 1960
Slip-case made [1995x1999]
Extracts from this volume are printed in Surtees Society 21 (see start of list for details).
Microfilm available for copying, ref PG 007 [Follett].
Digitised material for Durham Diocesan Records: Consistory Court act book 1, 1530s - DDR/EJ/CCA/1/1
DDR/EJ/CCA/1/2A-B   November 1567-August 1572
Includes criminal cases 'ex officio mero', and probates and administrations.
There are also some depositions on ff. 6 & 50. Bound in is one stray folio of acts 'ex officio' of 14 May 1580 (f.48a).
The initials 'R' [James Raine senior, 1791-1858] and 'C.S.' [Sir Cuthbert Sharp, 1781-1849] on f.53r indicate that the acts had been examined by these men, who may have been responsible for their original binding.
(now) 2 volumes
Folios [1] & 50 (one gathering), and 6 & 45 (one gathering) were found by M.G.Snape among some loose depositions formerly kept with DDR/EJ/CCA/1/1. Restored to this act book on 10 June 1958, and repaired in June-July 1980.
In 1987 rebound as two volumes:
2A. f.1-221, for 1567 to June 1570
2B. f.222-408, for June 1570 to 1572

During the 1987 rebinding, the foliation was reordered to restore the original [contemporary or near-contemporary] foliation and quires as far as this could be determined. The folios were previously bound in the order: 9-10, 39-40, 32-33, 38, 34-37, 21-30, 14-17, 13, 18-19, 11-12, 41-42, 8, 43-44, 7, 20, 31, 48a, 48, an unnumbered fragment, 53-340, 73 unnumbered folios. Folios 1,6,45 and 50 were loose in the volume [see above]. The pre-1987 spine is kept in a box next to volume 2B. Some missing folios were replaced with numbered plain sheets and some openings were interleaved with unnumbered plain sheets to minimise abrasive wear to the text.

Sent for repairs to binding (not full rebinding) and repairs to some page edges, 1979-1980. Unfortunately the paper repair was done with soluble nylon, which by 1998 was causing problems.
Due to be filmed and conserved 1995-1999, but withdrawn from the programme for further consideration of the soluble nylon problem. Slip-case made.

Folio 170r wrongly annotated 1581. The correct date should be 1585. (Folio 170v is dated 25 June 1585.)
The long established order of sheets in this volume, which has been the same since at least the time of its previous binding (probably ca.1823), was retained when the volume was split and rebound in two parts following its repair in 1998. Checking has revealed, however, that many of the sheets, especially in the second part of the volume, have been bound out of chronological order and that there are some noticeable gaps in the chronological sequence. The department's file for this volume includes notes for a more logical order in which some of the sheets should be read, and details of the most significant gaps in the sequence.

Folio 65 is a stray bearing the date Friday 20 April 1604 on its dorse and bound out of chronological sequence. Note that no consistory court act book survives for the period ca.December 1601-ca.September 1606.
Taken down, repaired etc and rebound as appropriate [1995x1999]
Bookmarks found within the volume now kept in an envelope in the separate box containing old boards etc (originally between f.5-6, 7-8, 13-14, 15-16, 19-20, 24-25, 35-36, 37-38, 45-46 & 65-66, with faded writing on the first five, and the name of Joseph Davison [deputy diocesan registrar 1832-ca.1868] on the sixth)
Microfilm available for copying, ref PG 011 [Follett]. Note that parts of this film will be difficult to read because the original text is extremely stained and in parts very faded.

The strips of paper found as bookmarks between ff. 189-190, 193-194, 194-195 & 195-196 are from the annotated proof-copy of J.Raine (ed), Historiae Dunelmensis Scriptores Tres… (Surtees Society, number 9, 1839)
. Presumably these strips are Raine's own proof and bookmarks.
Taken down, repaired etc and rebound as appropriate, 1997-1998. At that time, f.129-134 renumbered in correct order and bound correct way up (previously upside down and reversed: evidence of staining suggests that the mis-binding of these folios was probably made in the previous binding, [early 19th century]).
Microfilm available for copying, ref PG 012 [Follett], with volume 9
Photographic negatives and small index contact prints are held of sections of the volume which are particularly faded and do not show up well on the microfilm. They were made in York, November 1998, while the volume was disbound prior to repair and rebinding. Searchers can order prints from the negatives. They are for f.19r, 20r, 118v-120v, 138r, 139r-142v, 150r-155v, 157v-159v.

DDR/EJ/CCA/1/8A-B   [September] 1610-April 1614
At f.[6]r is the initial 'R' and a monogram, probably for James Raine, indicating that he had seen this volume.
In entries relating to a case of 1612/3 concerning the tithes of the manor of Crook Hall in the chapelry of Durham St Margaret, there are recited sixteen accounts of the proctor of the chapel of Durham St Margaret for the payment of these tithes, 1447/8-1523/4, and extracts from twenty books of receipt of Durham Cathedral relating to these tithes and the rectory of Durham St Oswald, 1583/4-1608/9 (ff.277r-281v). Compare f.260, reciting 1610 document relating to Crook Hall manor tithes, and ff. 290r, 352r, 356r and 357v.
Many bookmarks in the volume are taken from printed proofs. They have been retained in the volume after rebinding, in their original places. The department's file for this volume includes full details of the bookmarks found in it.

Marked “1619 to 1622” on 19th century binding (replaced)
The block of folios, ca. ff.109-118, should probably follow ca. f.166. Because some cases go on such a long time, it has not been possibly to establish just from the names of the parties exactly where this block should start and finish, nor where it should be put. See detailed notes in the department's file for this volume.

Monogram 'JR' (for James Raine) occurs twice on f.1r.
Folio 50B found among Durham Probate Records miscellanea, identified as a stray from this volume and placed with it, ca.1970s. It was sewn in during the 1998/1999 repair and rebinding. Other folios may still be missing from this section of the volume (f.50Av is dated 30 July 1624, and the next date in the volume, at f.52v, is 18 February 1624/5).

DDR/EJ/CCA/1/12   2 October 1629, January 1632-July 1636
Former binding marked “1629 to 1636”. Contains the following acts and acts ex officio:
ff.1r-36v: ca. January 1631/2-September 1634 (ex officio), with an entry on f.29r dated 3 February 1634/5, which was probably inserted later
ff.37r-196v: November 1632-December 1633
ff.197r-214v: November 1634-July 1636 (ex officio). Folios 209r-214v bound out of chronological order (should be read in the order 211r-214v, 210r-v, 209v, 209r)
f.215r-v: undated
f.216: dated Friday 2 October 1629 on dorse. This folio does not match the remainder of the section ff.215-223, and appears to be a stray from an earlier volume.
ff.217r-223v: undated

The monogram 'JR' (for James Raine) occurs twice on f.1.

DDR/EJ/CCA/1/14   March 1638-July 1640
Former binding marked “1637 to 1640”. Folio 44v is dated Friday 5 June 1638 but its correct date is probably Friday 15 June 1638. Folio 51r is dated the 'Friday following the Feast of St Matthew the Apostle, viz 18 September 1638', but its correct date should be Friday 28 September 1638 (St Matthew's day is 21 September).
The following groups of sheets are bound out of chronological order:
ca.f.22r to ca. f.33v (ca. 30 June 1638 - ca. 20 July 1638), probably belong after ca. f.47v
some parts of the final section f.213r-254v: pattern of staining suggests that they have been kept in their present order for some considerable time, and this order was therefore retained when the volume was rebound. The department's file of notes on this volume includes a list of dates noted on these folios.

i + 255 ff.
Taken down, repaired etc and rebound as appropriate, 1998-1999
The already faint inks in the final section of this volume appeared to fade slightly during the repair process carried out before the volume was rebound in 1998. It is thought that this was because the size used was too alkaline and this was corrected as soon as the effect was noticed.
Microfilm available for copying, ref PG 019 [Follett]. Due to fading of ink in final section and obscuring of some faint text with repair tissue, this microfilm presents a clearer image of parts of the text than can be obtained from the volume itself.

DDR/EJ/CCA/1/15   January 1666-September 1674
Non-testamentary cases only. Previous binding marked “1665 to 1674”
From ca.1672 onwards the main series of consistory court act books contains criminal cases 'ex officio mero' as well as those brought by promotion.
Date on f.75r should be Friday 8 November (not October) 1667. Also, ff.218v-221r are blank: the reason is unclear, but suggests that the court headings may have been written in advance and the details of proceedings filled in later.

Folio 151 (4 & 11 December 1685) has been bound the wrong way round and out of place. It should be read between f.141 (4 December 1685 on dorse) and f.142 (11 December 1685 on front).
Folios 209-218 and 287-290 are not in chronological order: f.209-218 belong between ff.167 and 168, f.287-290 refer to the period 19 January 1693/4-3 May 1695, which is covered by ff. 262r-276r. See the department's file of detailed notes on this volume for their correct order.
Folios 287-290 are also in a different format from the rest of the volume, written on smaller sheets and containing summary details of court proceedings arranged chronologically in columns. These are perhaps draft notes made during the hearings, from which the longer and more formal entries in the act book were later written up.

This volume includes copies of a number of documents relating to appointments and resignations of spiritual chancellors etc of the diocese of Durham, among them (ff. 91v-93r) William Wilson, who was appointed chancellor on 29 October 1690 but drowned on 27 November 1690. See C.E.Whiting, Nathaniel Lord Crewe Bishop of Durham… (1940) p.213. See also the department's file of detailed notes on this volume for a list of the appointments found in the volume.
Also included in the volume are:
Copy of a decree against clandestine marriages issued by a court held by the Commissioners for Ecclesiastical Causes at Whitehall, 4 November 1686 (f.18v)
Memorandum by Ralph Trotter, Durham diocesan registrar, 28 November 1754, concerning cases arising out of visitation presentments of 1701 and 1705 against Dorothy Stafford, wife of Christopher Stafford, rector of Bothal, and William Cresswell of Woodhorn. These cases were referred to the Durham consistory court by the archdeacon and then appealed to York, with mention of 'the original transmission from the archdeacon under his seal' which, with other items, 'fully proves the power of our Chancellor and the proceedings in this Cause'. This item had been 'secreted' and was subsequently 'found by me [Ralph Trotter] among some loose papers in my House belonging to the Widow of Peter Burrel the Younger formerly Deputy Register in my Office and secreted from thence but now bound up in my Book of Collections Page 258'.

The volume covers the period May 1595-October 1599 and in general the contents run in chronological order. There is, however, a gap in the chronological sequence between July 1597 and January 1597/8 (at ff.95-96).

Previous binding marked '1609 to 1620'. May originally have been two books or else two distinct sets of papers. The second half of the volume (from f.215) has a bigger size of paper than the first.
Folio 279B is loose and probably a stray from another volume. Folio 305v is dated 9 December 1614 but this should read 9 December 1615.
There is a gap in the chronological order between f.318v (dated 4 May 1616) and f.319 (dated 9 November 1616 on verso). Also, f.334 (28 May 1616) has been misplaced between f.333 (15 March 1616/7) and f.335 (22 March 1616/7). It should probably correctly go between ff.318v and 319r.
Folio 399 contains acts of the archdeacon of Northumberland for Whittingham parish in Alnwick deanery, 1621. This is a stray from the archdeacon of Northumberland's second act book, ref DDRA/ACN/1/2, where there are entries for Whittingham parish at ff.23v & 67r-v.

The 16th and 17th century acts were found among the probate miscellanea. They have been sorted into date order as far as possible (there are some undated items also). The 19th century items appear to have originally belonged together within a single bundle and have not been re-sorted.
Some of the acts are for criminal cases 'ex officio mero', and at least one is for Northumberland cases. However, they have all been kept together in a single sequence.

Court papers for individual consistory court causes, sorted by cause
Each cause for which papers survive in this series will typically contain one or more of the types of documents described below. Please note that many of the folders contain just a single document, and reasonably complete sets of court papers survive for only a few of the causes.
Before 1733, the formal court documents are written in Latin. From 25th March 1733, all the documents are in English. However, even before 1733, the body of depositions is in English, and large parts of the allegations and other documents are often also in English.
The causes are sorted according to the year of the earliest item in the folder (excepting earlier enclosures, such as wills or deeds). This may not be the date that the cause first came before the consistory court.
Within each year, the causes are arranged in alphabetical order, according to the name of the plaintiff or promoter of the cause. Criminal causes brought by the judge's office without a promoter ('ex officio mero') are put at the beginning of the year to which they belong, together with any unidentified causes from the same year.
Some undated cause papers are listed at the end of the series.
The court papers which had been sorted by Roy Hudleston are included in his card index, which includes names of parties and brief details of each cause, as well as names of witnesses. This index has been superseded by the list below, although it contains details of witnesses that have not been included here.
Some of the papers for matrimonial causes are used and referenced in Bailey, J., “Breaking the conjugal vows: marriage and marriage breakdown in the north of England”, (unpublished doctoral thesis, University of Durham, 1999)
