The Durham County Palatine Act 1858 (21 & 22 Vict c 45) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

Preamble[edit]

The preamble was repealed by section 9(2) of, and Part I of the Third Schedule to, the Crown Estate Act 1961.

Section 1 – Definition of the words "the county of Durham"[edit]

The section reads:

In this Act the words "the county of Durham" shall have the same interpretation and meaning as in the said recited Act.

"The said recited Act"

This means the Durham (County Palatine) Act 1836 (6 & 7 Will 4 c 19) which was recited in the preamble. Section 7 of that Act contained a definition of the expression "County of Durham".

Section 2 – The interest of the bishoprick of Durham in the foreshores of the county of Durham vested in Her Majesty[edit]

This section now reads:

. . . nothing in this Act contained shall extend to the island called Holy Island, situate in that part of the County Palatine of Durham called Islandshire . . .[3]

The words omitted were repealed by section 9(2) of and Part I of the Third Schedule to, the Crown Estate Act 1961.

Section 3 – Certain leases by the Bishop confirmed, but rents received under some of them to be apportioned[edit]

This section was repealed by section 9(2) of and Part I of the Third Schedule to, the Crown Estate Act 1961.

Section 4 – Rents and proceeds from the foreshores of Durham to be divided equally between the Crown and the Ecclesiastical Commissioners[edit]

All rents and profits and other monies which may be received by the [Crown Estate Commissioners], under the provisions of this Act or otherwise howsoever, from, and the proceeds of any sales or dispositions made by them or either of them of, any part of the bed or shores of any navigable river so far as the tide flows, or of the shores of the sea below high-water mark, or of any inclosures, embankments, and encroachments made therefrom or thereupon respectively within the county of Durham, and after deducting thereout all costs, charges, and expenses in any wise incidental to the sale or management or recovery of such property, shall be divided into moieties; and one moiety of such rent, profits, monies, and proceeds shall be applied by the [Crown Estate Commissioners] , as part of the hereditary possessions and land revenues of the Crown, . . . ; and the other moiety thereof shall be paid by the same Commissioners to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England ; but, notwithstanding this provision for the apportionment of the said rents, profits, monies, and proceeds, the said Ecclesiastical Commissioners shall have no right to interfere with the management or disposition of such property, which shall be managed and disposed of in all respects as part and parcel of the hereditary possessions of the Crown, and as if no such provision as last aforesaid had been made.

The references to the Crown Estate Commissioners were substituted by virtue of article 2 of S.R. & O. 1924/1370, sections 1(1) and (7) of the Crown Estate Act 1956 and section 1(1) of, and paragraph 4(1) of the Second Schedule to, the Crown Estate Act 1961.

The words "in the manner prescribed by an Act passed in the Tenth Year of the Reign of His late Majesty King George the Fourth, chapter fifty" (which referred to the Crown Lands Act 1829) were repealed by section 9(2) of and Part I of the Third Schedule to, the Crown Estate Act 1961.
