Evidence category: content Content: The current register or letter-book of priory business transacted by the prior of Durham entered in roughly chronological order. From 1407 Prior John de Hemingborough, then Prior Wessington in 1416, marked with a heading on f.20r. The register appears to have continued to be little used in the early years of his priorate. From 1439, the high level of usage reflects another new beginning with seemingly Wessington handing over responsibility for the register to his chaplain, Richard Parke.
