About the creator

The procurator was responsible for the management of the college building since its formation in 1808. This followed the system established at the English College in Douai in which the procurator played a leading role in the financial administration of the college generally. The procurator was often required to seek out the necessary funds in order to realise the ambitious building plans of successive presidents. This was particularly evident in the presidency of Mgr Charles Newsham (1837-1863), who embarked on a extensive building programme in order to enlarge the capacity of the college and to bring its arrangements into line with more modern requirements. This saw the construction of the original St Cuthbert's Chapel (with its attendant chapels), the library, infirmary, museum, exhibition hall, lavatories, kitchens, farm buildings, and the junior seminary. Following the controversy surrounding the Sherburne-Heatley case, in which it was alleged that college funds had been misappropriated and largely used to fund Newsham's ambitions, greater control of funds was ceded to the diocesan bishops. This perhaps explains why, with the exceptions of the new St Cuthbert's Chapel in 1882 and the East Wing (conference centre) in 1962, the building programmes of successive presidents tended to be more modest in scope and were largely confined to the upgrading of the original building.

Contents

These records cover all aspects of the building and maintenance of the college and its grounds, including papers and architectural plans of the accommodation areas, chapels, exterior building, college grounds, gymnasium, kitchens, laboratories, lecture rooms, library, lifts and staircases, sanitation systems, swimming baths, utilities, and new wings and blocks.

Accession details

Originally retained separately as part of the procurators' archive, the building records were transferred to the main college archive in November 2012.

Previous custodial history

The majority of records pertaining to the building work and maintenance of the college were originally created as part of the day-to day business of the college itself.

Conditions of access

There is restricted access to administrative records less than 30 years old, with some further restrictions, generally as noted, on records less than 80 years old where the Data Protection Act applies.

Copyright and copying

Permission to make any published use of material from the collection must be sought in advance from ushaw.library@durham.ac.uk and, where appropriate, from the copyright owner. The Library will assist where possible with identifying copyright owners, but responsibility for ensuring copyright clearance rests with the user of the material

Arrangement

It has not been possible to recreate the original arrangement of the filing system adopted by the respective procurators so the arrangement in this collection is, for the most part, artificial.

4. Other Building Records

Appraisal

The building records have been appraised on the basis of their historical value and the uniqueness of the material. Information which is duplicated in other records, and clean duplicates, have generally been removed.

Accruals

A limited number of further accruals are anticipated for current maintenance, although the closure of the college in 2010 is likely to result in diminishing returns.
