Administrative history:
Henry Cooke, second son of Sir Henry Cooke of Wheatley, Yorkshire, purchased the OWSTON ESTATE, near Doncaster in the West Riding of Yorkshire, in 1698 from John Adams. The Adams family had held the manor and estate for over a century, but the last two squires had indulged in great extravagance and the sale of the estate was apparently necessary to settle their debts. The Cookes continued to hold Owston despite the early deaths of several sons. In 1763 on the death of Anthony Cooke, the management of the estate devolved upon his widow, Mary, as Bryan the only surviving son was only 5 years of age. For the rest of her life, Mrs. Cooke devoted herself to safeguarding and increasing her son's inheritance, purchasing large areas of land in the adjoining parishes of Thorpe and Adwick-le-Street. She died in 1785 shortly after Bryan Cooke had returned home after a brief career in the Army. The following year he married Frances Puleston, the heiress of Hafod-y-Wern, Wrexham, and Gwysaney in Flintshire. Their son Philip Davies Cooke inherited all three estates. These the family retained until the sale of the Owston Estate in 1980 confined their holdings to the Welsh Estate.

Contents:
Apart from fine series of deeds, maps, surveys, rentals and account books dealing with the management of the estate, covering over 6,000 acres of land in the townships of Owston, Skellow, Carcroft, Burghwallis, Sutton and Thorpe-in-Balne from the 17th century to the 1970s, there are records relating to the enclosure and drainage of lands in these areas, papers relating to the rebuilding of Owston Hall, personal papers relating to the official positions held by members of the family, of Bryan Cooke as M. P. for Malton, J. P. for the West Riding and a Colonel of the 3rd West Yorkshire Militia, correspondence with other members of the influential Cooke family and of the Earl and Countess of Kingston.

After preliminary borings in the 1860s, the depth of seams under the Owston Estate prevented exploitation until the sinking of shafts at Bullcroft Colliery in 1908.

To house the thousands of coal miners, the Carcroft Colliery village was constructed.

They were numbered y 1-98 some time before 1903 when they were examined by Francis Bickley of the British Museum. Bickley was looking for clauses relating to mines and minerals on behalf of Mr Davies-Cooke A number of the deeds in the old y numbering system are now missing Some of these were noted as missing by Mr Bickley in 1903 These are: y 53, y 58, y 63, y 64, y 68, y 70, y 76, y 80, y 81, y 86, y 91 and y 97 In addition, y 32 and y 33 are now missing
