[no title or date]  D661

Conditions of access: Some of the documents in D661/1 have not been deposited at the Staffordshire County Record Office, and in this online list these documents are described as Related Material. Please contact the Staffordshire County Record Office for further details.

Source of acquisition: D661


Arrangement: The documents in this series were numbered and transcribed by Major R.A. Dyott. The documents are stored in bundles in the order in which they are numbered, but they have not been numbered in chronological order, or in archive groups.
Full transcripts of all the documents in this series were made by Major Dyott and one copy of the transcripts was bound up in seven volumes, which are in Major Dyott's possession. The transcripts in each volume are arranged in chronological order and consequently do not follow the sequence of the numbers on the documents.
A second copy of the transcripts is with the collection (see D661/2) and should be consulted for full information on the documents concerned. The transcripts in this copy are arranged in numerical order. The list is only intended as a guide to the documents in the series.
The dates given for documents are those that appear on the transcripts. Where these are inaccurate the correct date has been noted.


[no title or date]  D661/1

Many of the documents in the numbered series were damaged by water when the building in which they were stored was damaged during the Second World War. In consequence some of them have become partly or wholly illegible. In such cases the transcripts, D66/2 (which were made before the damage occured) must be used.

General William Dyott's Diaries, main series. 16 volumes of Manuscript diaries in General Dyott's handwriting. Much of the diaries are taken up with the General's military career, including operations in the West Indies, 1796-97, Egypt, 1801, and Walcheren, 1809, and suppression of civil disorders in the Midlands, 1811. The later part of the diary (after 1812) is chiefly occupied with records of the general family and estate affairs, but it also includes comments on political events and accounts of the General's activities as a J.P. in Staffordshire.
Very full extracts from the diaries have been published by R.W. Geoffrey, in Dyott's Diaries (2 volumes, 1907). The printed edition gives the general's accounts of military operations fairly fully, but many passages relating to his family affairs, estate business, activities as a J.P., and comments on local affairs have been omitted.

The six volumes were extensively damaged by fire and water during the war of 1939-1945. They have since been extensively repaired and rebound, but parts of some pages have been lost, and there is considerable staining, and fading of ink, due to damp.

Contents:
The six volumes listed in this series were deposited by Major R.A. Dyott as an addition to his earlier deposits of family records. Each volume consists of two or more smaller books, bound up together. The collecting of these books into bound volumes does not appear to have been done in accordance with any definite principle. While in some cases the smaller books that are bound up consecutively together are obviously connected with each other (see e.g. D.661/21/5/3/5), in other cases books quite unconnected with each other have been bound in the same volume and books which form a continuous series have been bound up in different volumes (See e.g. D.661/21/5/1 and D. 661/21/6/2). Cross references have been inserted in the lists where appropriate to reduce the difficulties caused by circumstances.
The nature of the six volumes is further complicated by the fact that some of the smaller books have been used for more than one set of entries. In many cases additional short accounts, memoranda, or rough jottings have been entered at a later date on pages that were left blank when a book was originally used. Anyone book may thus contain entries which vary widely in subject matter and in date. D.661/21/1/1 for example, was originally brought into use about 1632, and after having been used for various purposes in the 17th Century, was used again for a different set of accounts in the 18th Century.
In the following lists the contents of each volume have been described in turn. In order to prevent confusion the order in which the volumes has been listed is in accordance with the numbering placed on the spines of the volumes when they were rebound after 1945. This order, however, has no significance, and does not correspond with the chronological order of the varied accounts, etc., contained in the volumes. Within each volume, each of the smaller books has been allotted a number, according to the order in which it is bound into the volume. Within each of the smaller books, each separate account, or other group of entries, has been allotted a letter.
The greater part of the entries in the six volumes are accounts for household or estate purposes (often with estate and household business intermixed). It may be presumed that these accounts concern the estates, and households, of members of the Dyott family. In no case, however, is this clearly stated, and it is not possible to decide with certainty who the accountants are. Where the accounts deal with estate business, the size and location of the estates covered by the accounts is not clearly stated, though from references in the accounts it is often possible to discover where some at least of the estates concerned were situated.

A volume containing three smaller books

[no title or date]  D661/21/1/1

Contents:
This book was first used in the 17th Century, and was used for various accounts and notes from 1631/2 onwards. In the 18th Century the volume was used again, from 1734 onwards, for a series of farm and household accounts, which were written on spaces left blank by the earlier entries. The 17th and 18th Century entries are mingled together for much of the book.

Some expenditure is noted to have been incurred at London, Lichfield and Coventry. Totals are given for each week's expenditure. The accounts for the Civil War period include repeated payments for soldier's pay.
