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:

Letter of Richard bishop of St Andrew's to G[erman] prior and the convent of Durham with many expressions of affection and regard, and an assurance that he would do nothing against their honour or advantage, and therefore, when the other day there took place the dedication of the church of Ednam, he neither did nor intended anything to the detriment of them or their church, nor was there anything done or intended by anyone there but, as reason demanded and custom required, he handed over the key of the church to the parson, and the bishop also invested with the key of the church the prior of Coldingham, whom he understands to be one of their monks and faithful and devout, not influenced by anyone's request, and with no word or sign having been given by the prior himself or another on his behalf, for reason denies and custom rejects the idea that a monk be appointed to that cure, when he is cloistered and comes to the bishop without any letter from the community, even if possibly by their orders.

He has granted that the monks shall have in perpetuity as much power, dignity and disposition in all their parish churches as any abbot has in his churches in the diocese. Prior Bertram and the monks of Durham, with the advice and assent of H[ugh du Puiset] bishop of Durham and his whole chapter, have given and granted to the church of St Andrew's, the bishop and his successors, the chapel of Nenthorn to be held and granted in perpetuity to whomever they will, free, quit and absolved both from them and from the mother church of Ednam.

Notarized letters by the dean of Christianity of Durham and the official of the archidiaconal jurisdiction of the prior of Durham, relating that John Oll', monk of Durham and prior of Coldingham, publicly showed and produced a certain paper schedule containing certain articles about his reputation and honour, and handed it over to the dean and official, asking them to receive and examine certain witnesses brought by him for proof of the said articles, and to reduce their words into public form; and that the dean and official, acceding to his request and taking the following Schedule of articles on the part of John Oll', monk and priest of Durham, prior of Coldingham, intended for proof before the dean of Christianity of Durham and the official of the archidiaconal jurisdiction of the prior of Durham, lest the truth be obscured, that (1) John Oll' and his kin were and are of free condition, and are immune from the yoke of servitude, and have been taken and reputed as such whilst alive since time out of mind; [2] he, his father and grandfather and the rest of his family originated in the barony of Brancepeth, and were taken for free men, as they were, during their whole time there; [3] upon the foregoing, within the said barony and the places round about there is public knowledge; examined the witnesses on oath concerning the articles, and they deposed as follows: William Blithman', priest, forty-eight years old and more, he says, originating from the barony of Brancepeth, a witness produced on the part of John Oll', says that the articles contain the truth; asked how he knows, he says that his mother, who died inside the last two years, told him that she knew Robert Oll', John's grandfather, who used to dwell in Boggle Hole, to the west, next to the west park of Brancepeth [between Willington and Crook], where Robert Lethom' now lives, and William Oll', John's father, whom the witness knew while he lived, had been born there; and John had been born in the vill of Brancepeth, in the house where his father died; and the witness said that they were free men and of the best valetti of the barony, and has never heard any of them named as being of servile status, but rather of good repute, honest life and praiseworthy behaviour; and that he has never heard that anyone of servile status had been born in the barony; that, after William Oll' died, John's mother moved to Durham with all her goods and she died there; that the reputation of John and his kin has never been other than that they were free men; that he has not been influenced; that John Oll' had been free since birth; and that if anything different is claimed, it is from rancour and envy; Peter Bireley, seventy-seven years old and more, originating in the barony of Brancepeth, he says, agrees with the previous witness and says that he knew Robert and William Oll', and one day saw around sixty of that surname playing football at Helmington Row in the barony, who were named among the best valetti of the barony and as free men; and that he has never heard of anyone of servile status being born in the said barony; Robert de Yorke, seventy-four years old and more, he says, originating in the said barony, agrees with Peter; John Lethom', fifty-eight years old, originating in the said barony, in the place where the father of John Oll' had been born, agrees with the first co-witness; Richard Maynherde, fifty-eight years years old, originating in the barony, says that he knew William Oll' of Stanley [north of Crook presumably], brother of Robert Oll', John's grandfather, and that John's ancestors were among the best valetti of the barony and had never been named as bondmen or serfs; and, for the rest, agrees with the previous witnesses; Thomas Wren, sixty years old and more, originating in the barony, agrees with the previous witness; Hugh Watson', fifty-six years old and more, he says, originating in the barony, agrees with the first witness; John Hamsterley, fifty-six years old, originating in the barony of Brancepeth, agrees with earlier witnesses; William Hoton' of Elvet, sixty years old and more, originating in the said barony, agrees with his co-witnesses; Robert Lethom', forty years old and more, he says, originating in the said barony, says that he was given a knife decorated with silver by William Oll', John's father, and that he had dwelt and been born in the same place where William Oll' had been born, next to the west park of Brancepeth; and for the rest agrees with the earlier witnesses; Thomas Wilkynson' of Brancepeth, sixty years old and more, once, he says, a servant of William Oll', agrees with Richard Maynherd' in all things; Richard Hamsterley, thirty-four years old and more, agrees with his co-witnesses; John Maynsforth of Durham, seventy-one years old and more, he says, says that he knew William Oll', father of John Oll', and that his own wife used to be William's servant and dwelt with him for a long time; that he knew the others of John's kin as good valetti and as very valiant (valentibus) within the barony; that never in his life has he heard them called serfs or of servile status; that he knows well that, if any servitude be imputed to John, it should be from envy and ill-will and not otherwise; and that John is a free man from birth, like all his family. Whereafter the dean and official, at the request of John Oll', ordered the depositions to be reduced into a public instrument. Under the signs and names of the notaries, and subscribed by the second- and third-named of them, and under the seals of the dean and official. Witnesses: William Hoton', J.P. of the bishop and steward of the prior of Durham; Thomas Todde, William Barkdale, priests of Durham dioc.
