Arrangement A description of the lay out and scope of the Belsay archives is available in the first report of the National Register of Archives on this collection. The storage arrangements described there have been for the most part preserved during the process of listing and indexing the collection in detail, but a few modifications have been necessary. For example, the boxes have been re-numbered. Their contents have been sorted out so as to group related classes of records together in cases where a box contained a miscellaneous accumulation of bundles. The original bundles have, however, been preserved scrupulously except in cases where the original archive order had been disturbed as a result of Sir Charles Monck's decision to burn parts of the archive, or in the course of Sir Arthur Middleton's historical and antiquarian researches, and also in the course of business and administrative routine which involved production of individual or selective groups of documents in connection with mortgages, marriage settlements, law suits etc. In such instances these abstracted documents and 'artificial' parcels of deeds have been returned to the boxes and bundles from which they were originally removed if their correct position is indicated by the old archive marks or in the schedules and notes included in the collection.

Contents:
The archives at Belsay cover the acquisition of, tenure and disposition of real estate, manorial administration, estate administration and personal papers relating to both public offices and private interests. A subsidiary group of records within the latter class relate to public undertakings, such as turnpikes and railways in which the Middletons had a financial or administrative interest. Notices of the more interesting and important items are included in the first report. In addition, transcripts have now been made of a selection of the political correspondence (mainly letters on elections) of Sir Charles Miles Lambert Monck. The Wallace correspondence has not been listed, as the owner proposes to deposit this in a suitable repository. The letters of Isabella Cooke form a third box of correspondence. The individual items in this box are of no great importance, but, taken as a whole, they give a very good impression of the life of a Victorian lady of leisure. In particular, her locked diary is a very good guide to the feelings and sentiments of the age, in particular to the "high moral tone" adopted in the face of disappointments and bereavements. The journals on travel-though not particularly original or well written - are again a useful guide to the attitude and ideas of the Victorian lady. There is also a series of very carefully kept reading lists, giving a brief, but decidedly personal criticism of each book.
Property. The following brief details regarding the acquisition and sale of land are a useful guide to the date range of the various groups of title deeds included in the archives.
Belsay. The Book of Fees records that the Middletons held the manor of Belsay in socage and Thornbrough for one knight's fee in 1242 but no record remains of how these properties were acquired.
Edington. Bought by Ralph Middleton in 1609 from the Eures for £540 and sold by Sir Arthur Middleton in 1901.
Whalton. Bought by Ralph Middleton between 1611 and 1640.
Dromonby (Yorks). Bought by Thomas Middleton 13 April, 1623 from the Constables for £520; sold by Sir John Middleton in 1700 for £4,000.
Tritlington and Choppington. Bought 12 June, 1628 for £3,050.
Netherworsall. Bought by Robert Middleton from the Constables 6 November, 1574.
Choppington and Cleaswell Hill Collieries (leasehold). Sold by Sir John Middleton c.1700. (also Tritlington and Swinburn).
Calton (Yorks). Lambert estate, sold by Sir William Middleton May, 1727.
Albury Hatch, Essex. Left to Anne, wife of Sir John Lambert Middleton by her cousin, Mrs. Frances Bladen and sold by Sir Charles M. L. Monck 1820.
Lincolnshire Estate. Principally Caenby and Glentham - acquired as a result of the marriage of Jane, daughter and heiress of Lawrence Monck of Caenby with Sir William Middleton (20 April, 1774) and sold by Sir Arthur Middleton 1871.
(a) Belsay MSS. There are large quantities of deeds, (including a few medieval ones), estate papers, etc. relating to the Northumberland property; many of the deeds concerning the Yorkshire, Durham, and Essex estates, inherited from the Lambert, Ettrick and Hodges heiresses respectively were probably handed over at the times when those properties were sold, but some wills, estate papers etc., remain at Belsay. There are particularly fine series of modern Northumberland Estate Accounts and Labourers day-books. The personal papers of Sir Charles Monck, bart. (ob. 1867) are of considerable interest and importance. There is a notable absence of the main classes of manorial documents: it is possible that they may be discovered in the offices of a local lawyer, successor of a former steward as it is unlikely, being important legal documents, that they would have been deliberately destroyed. There are also some papers relating to coal mines and lead mines.
(b) The Caenby MSS consist of a considerable quantity of deeds from the 12th century, and a few manorial documents from the 14th, (but no Court Rolls earlier than the 16th); estate papers from the late 17th, with enclosure and drainage acts of the 18th and 19th centuries; all referring to the estates inherited from the Monck heiress, and formerly belonging to the Tournays.

Journal of Sir Charles Monck's Travels in Germany, Venice, Greece  ZMI  1804-1806

Contents:
This journey, which was a combination of Grand Tour and honeymoon, took place during the Napoleonic wars, yet, such was the nature of warfare at that period that Sir Charles was able to carry out his itinerary without hindrance and his diary scarcely refers to the war or to enemy operations. The fleas which infested Greek inns and lodgings caused more discomfort than the Emperor's soldiers and the Mediterranean storms were a greater danger than the French Men of War. Sir Charles writes interesting,and frequently amusingly on architecture by personalities, plants, prices and a variety of topics of general interest. A typical entry in the diary is the account of the voyage home:-
Page 194. Thursday October 24: This morning we have heard of a Greek vessel now lying here which intends sailing this evening for Zante. As that sets us something forward in our return westward we have agreed with the Captain for the use of his little cabin between here and Zante for which we pay 75 piastres - to pay 80 if well satisfied with his behaviour on landing...... We found the little cabin very low and inconvenient and the air had free passage through it on most sides. Fleas abounded as we found, and lice most probably for we caught one upon our little boy's clothes.
Page 200. November 11: (An entry about a ship which might take them on to Malta): the accommodations are good and the captain a civil man of pleasant countenance. Coming to talk with him of the price of carrying us, simply as freight to Malta, we keeping ourselves he demanded 350 seguirs. Surely foreigners think every Englishman a gold mine.
Page 219. Tuesday February 17: I have not written since Wednesday last. It was impossible for the motion of the ship and general confusion of every thing in it till now. On Thursday we had a fair wind ...between 12 o'clock on Wednesday and 12 at noon on Thursday we had run 120 miles. At sunset there was a dead calm. The wind then suddently sprang up from the North West, then shifted after a little to the north from whence it began to blow most tremendously. Soon after dark our spanker boom parted in the middle and fell upon the after deck, carried away several feet of the bulwark and unshipped the wheel - the vessel became ungovernable, the wheel being unshipped and the tiller so encumbered with the wreck of the boom and sail that it could not be moved...... A sea coming astern of us stove in one of the cabin windows and lifted a couple of hogsheads of water into the cabin, a good share of which came into bed to me and wet all my clothes that I had pulled off besides - the sailors thought they heard the topmasts give way at the same time with the boom and were so panick struck that all went down below, and the captain neither by threats, entreaties or any encouragement whatever could prevail upon any one to go up aloft and hand the topsails. He went up himself and the mate followed him but they were not able to hand any canvas before the wind had entirely split to rags the fore topsail and topsail. A meteor showed itself at the beginning of the storm at the mast head and remained there fixed the whole time, appearing as if a lanthorn with candle burning in it was fixed to the masthead. The boom in its fall killed my she goat that had the kid and frightened the milch one overboard - the kid and my greyhound were preserved by being put below....... On Friday the storm still continued without abatement. It was impossible to cook anything so we lived upon biscuit and cheese. The bulwarks at midship were carried away and the sea broke over the long boat by which our fourteen fat turkies were dashed limb from limb and my tortoises all killed, both which were in the boat. A Swedish sailor on board told the rest that when these meteors attach themselves to the rigging it portends that some of the sailors shall be washed overboard, so none of them could be prevailed upon to go up aloft or expose themselves upon the deck.... my silver travelling inkstand so contrived as not to let the ink escape had the ill luck to be between two heavy trunks when they made a violent assault upon each other and was broke into several pieces .............
(This storm continued without abatement until the following Tuesday, when it gave place to a period of calm and fair weather and Sir Charles was able to write up his diary).

NOTES F. A. II. Lambert printed the text of some of these charters (II, A 1; II, A 2; II, C 3; II, C 4; III, A 5; III, C 6; IV, A 6; IV, B 1; V, C12) in Surrey Archaeological Collections XVI (1901), p.24 foll. J.H. Round in "The Tale of a Great Forgery" in The Ancestor III (1902) p.14 (a copy is in the Belway MSS, B14/VII/2) showed these to he forgeries, and there is every reason to think all the medieval documents are forgeries.
No evidence to support any of the alleged Crowland charters can be found in the Wrest Park cartulary of Crowland Abbey.
For the true pedigree of Lambert of Calton so far as it can be traced, see J. W. Morkill: The Parish of Kirby Malhamdale (1933), chapter IV "The Lamberts and Their Successors", which also gives the background to the forgeries.
