Custodial History

The Garrowby Estate records now held at the Borthwick Institute arrived in two deposits. The first deposit, made in August 1980, consisted of the records referenced B3.1 - B3.25 (with the exception of B3.5a, deposited on 16 November 2004). B3.26 was deposited on 9 May 2000. A significant collection of additional estate records discovered in the Estate Office at Bugthorpe was deposited at the Borthwick Institute on 1 February 2005. The second deposit consisted of the records now referenced B3.27 -B3.59 and B4.4. The arrangement of the catalogue reflects these two separate record deposits.
