Crewe purchased Bamburgh Castle in 1704 after his marriage to Dorothy Forster, whose family had lost it through bankruptcy, and he bequeathed it together with other revenues from the area to the charitable trust he founded. This catalogue was edited by the Rev. Joseph Stevenson and records practically all the items now present in the library which is on indefinite loan to Durham University, apart from the music now in Durham Cathedral.
