Source of acquisition The collection was deposited at Yorkshire Archaeological Society in July 1967 by Lt. Col. P.L. Bradfer-Lawrence and Mrs B.E Gray, children of H.L. Bradfer-Lawrence, according to the wishes expressed their father's will; it was subsequently gifted to the Society in 1972. A small additional group of papers was presented in 1987. H.L. Bradfer Lawrence acquired some of the Lister archive from Jack Robinson in 1948-49, and the post-medieval documents relating to Craven from Tot Lord of Settle.

Creators Bradfer-Lawrence, H L, 1887-1965, antiquarian of Ripon, West Riding of Yorkshire
Arrangement The Bradfer-Lawrence collection is, with the exception of Bradfer-Lawrence's own papers, a wholly artifical collection built up through purchase, gift or other means. It was received by the Yorkshire Archaeological Society in boxes, and when subsequently repacked into new archival boxes the old box numbers were retained. Different items deriving from one provenance, were, however, found to be scattered throughout the boxes, and recreating an original arrangement for the discrete groups is not now entirely possible. A deed relating to the Craven area, for example, could originally have derived from the Lister archive, or have been purchased at a sale room from a quite separate source. Bradfer-Lawrence had filed some items separately: for example, some papers in Box 37 were in a file labelled 'Samples of Handwriting'; these included items from the Ribblesdale and Wilson archives as well as miscellaneous Craven Manuscripts. Some groups are distinct (such as the Millar Deeds) but the placing of some material within some of the other groups must be viewed with a measure of doubt. The collection was re-catalogued in 2004-2005. All items are now renumbered according to the new arrangement, but their former box- and item- numbers have been noted. All dates in this catalogue are given in New Style.
Related information See also MS731d, MD303, MS918, DD203 at Yorkshire Archaeological Society. Other parts of the Bradfer-Lawrence accumulations are at the Norfolk Record Office. Further Lister documents, including some for Malham, and maps for Clitheroe, are at the Lancashire Record Office; there are stray 17th century Gisburn leases at North Yorkshire County Record Office. Further Pilkington of Chevet documents are at the West Yorkshire Archive Service: Wakefield; there is also more in the John Goodchild Collection in Wakefield. Further records of the Wilson of Eshton family are at West Yorkshire Archive Service: Bradford. Other Eshton Hall estate papers (mainly financial records) were purchased in 1976 by the University of Leeds: MS 417 (see University of Leeds handlist 38, copy available at YAS) The Bradfer-Lawrence collection of mediaeval western manuscripts was mainly deposited in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge after his death. See 'A Handlist of the Bradfer-Lawrence Manuscripts deposited on loan at the Fitzwilliam Museum' by Phyllis M. Giles (see Transactions of the Cambridge Bibliographical Society, 6, (1973), copy available at YAS). The collection was then acquired by Quaritch and is now dispersed amongst the British Library, Leeds University Library, Tokyo, private collectors (see article by A.S.G. Edwards in 'The Book Collector', vol 53 no 1, spring 2004).

Lister Family, Barons Ribblesdale, Family and Estate Records  MD335/1  12th century-20th century

80 boxes

Source of acquisition: Bradfer-Lawrence wrote in 1948 that he collected the Lister records together from three distinct sources. The greater part came to light in a solicitors' office during wartime paper salvage operations and he purchased those. Another large portion were turned over for similar use on the final break-up of the Gisburn Park estate, and a third section came from another wartime clearance from a private house, the owner of which may have been a descendant of an attorney and banker of the Lister family.

35 series


Related information: It is quite possible that a number of the deeds listed in the section 'Craven Manuscripts', MD335/6, derive from the archive of the Lister family. Further research would reveal how far this is in fact the case. See also DD203 for the main bulk of the so called 'Calton Deeds' relating to the former Lambert estate. Deeds relating to Bradley and elsewhere in, Staffordshire, once part of this group, are not at Yorkshire Archaeological Society, but a list is available.

1 file

Administrative history:
Catherine Lister (known within the family as 'Kitt') was baptised on 24 December 1793. She married Samuel [?James] Skurray Day of Hinton Charterhouse, Somerset, in Gisburn on 4 September 1810. It would appear that proceedings for their separation were in hand by 1813. The 'Gentleman's Magazine' reports the death of Day in November 1816; a letter from Hoyle Oddie to Ribblesdale suggests that he was dead by 11 September 1816, when he writes 'Your daughter is now relieved from a most cruel state'. There is no record of any divorce proceedings relating to the Day case in the House of Lords Record Office - no bill, petition, evidence or reference in the Journal of the House of Lords.

Contents:
Letters and papers relating to the proceedings between the Hon Mrs Day ( nee Catherine Lister) and her husband, Samuel Skurray Day, and to the settlement of her jointure, with correspondence with Mrs Day his mother. Including letter to Ribblesdale from her cousin Thomas Lister of Armitage Park 'It is a great comfort to think that my cousin Catherine is thus early released from her worthless and abandoned husband ...'; and solicitors' accounts in the case of Day against Day.
