GENERAL 

HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION 

DERBYSHIRE. 



DsBBrsBlVB, wbich took its aame from the county town, wu, in the time of tbe Britoni 
part of a large diiuiet inhiUled by the Caritaiii, Daring tbe gOTcrnmeiit of the RomUB, it 
fbnsed part of Brilamiia Prima, and whsn England became diTided under tbe Saion 
mooarebt, into wted kingdoms, called the beptarehy, Derbyshire coailicuted part of Metcia, 
and RcptoD, then called RepandnDe, appear* to have been a reeideuce of the Herciui kiagi. 
It it a midland and almott central county, being situated nearly at an equal diBtaocts froDk 
the eastern and weatem teas. It is bounded un tbe north by Yorkibire, on tbe aouth and 
wntlk east by Leicestenthire, on the east by Nottinghamshire, on tbe weat by StnSordsbire, 
and on the noTib-weil by Cheshire. It lies betaeeo 32 deg. 40 min. and 53 deg. 39 min. 
norlti latitude, Bod 1 deg. 12 min. and 2 deg. 3 min. west longitude from the weridltn of 
areenwieb. The form of the county is extreowly irregular, especially on its western side, 
and then is a small isolated part of it in Leiculenbire. Its greatest length from north north- 
west to south south-east is SS miles, and its breadth from east to west is about 33 milt*. The 
eircamrereDce is SD4 miles, comprisiag an area of 663,180 acres, of which S10,nOO an arable, 
paatare, and meadow lands. At the ceasus in IBil it contained a population of 372,217 
■nbabitaots, of wbum 133,630 were males, 130,391 were females, of tbis number 61,430 
males, and 61,433 femiles were under twenty years of age, and 11,110 mates and 12,173 
leiiiAlei ■ure twenty years old and upwards. The nnmber of inhabitants born in the county 
were 238,136, and elsewhere 41,061, and the number of occupied dwelling bouses were 
S3,020, at tbe same time 3,493 were uniuhabited, and 441 were building. la 1801 the 
population was 164,143, and the annnal value of the land and bnildiug u luened to the 
county rale in 1813 was £661,639. The annuoJ value of real property assessed to tbe poor 
rates tut tbe year ending Lady-day 181 1, was lauded, £623,396; dwelling houses, £160,111, 
and all other kinds of property £60,313, making a total of real property assessed, of £866,488, 
.on wbicb £61,194 were levied. The average value ofiand per acre for the whole county is 
18s. itU., and the AimciL ViLOE of every parish or township may be seen by referring to

are held at Derby, u are tbe qoarter cesriont, except the Easter, which are held at 
Cbe«terAeld; Derbyshire and Natdiighamihini were so far connected in civil polity that they 
had but one iheriff for both counliei, till the year I3fi9. The assizes for both countiea were 
held at Nottiugham till the reigs of Ileury III. Thej were then held alternately in each 
county, till 1969, Mnce which time tbey have been UDiformly held at Derby. Judge 
Rlackslone sayi EugUnd was lirat divided into cootities, hundreds, and tiihings, by Alfred the 
Great, for the protection of property and the eiecnliun of justice. Tithings were so called 
brcsuse teo frecholden with their iamilics formed one ; ten of these tltbiugs were lopposed to

met (11 the aldermen of bis district, and holding up bis tpeoT they all touched it with Ihein, 
in token of subjeclion and union to one commim intereiL Ad indifferent number of these 
wapentakes or hundreds farm a coonty or shire, for the civil govemmenl of whicfa a shire-ceeTe 
01 Sheriff is elected annnally- The kingdom was divided into parii^bes soon after (be 
introdnclion of Chriilianity, by Honorins, Archbishop of Cinlerbory, in the year 636, and 
the boundaries of them, as marked in Doomsday book, agree very nearly with the present 
division. Tbe custom which still cuntinnes of making the hundreds responsible for the 
excesses of a lawless mob, is an appendage (« the Saion (ystem of tithing. 

Historians all agree that the Aborigioes of Britain were a tribe of Gaols who emigrated 
from 'Uie contineat, probably a ihoutaod yean before the Christian era. Previous to the 
Roman uonqnesl, the ancient BHiains inhabiting the toutbara portion of tbe island had mode 
some little progress towards civllizalioo, hot those on tbe north were wild and tmcullirated, 
and subsisted chiefly by hunting, and the ipoDlaneoui productions of the earth, wearing for 
their clothing tbe skins of animals killed id the chase, and dwelling in habitations formed by 
the interwoven braucbea of the foretL Their religion was Dmidical, hut its origin is not 
known i some assert that the Dmids accompanied the Gauls in early ages, and others that 
Druidism was first introduced into England by the Pbcenicians, who were the lirst merchants 
who traded to this island, and for a considerable time monopolized a proBlable trade in tin 
and other useful metals. Their government, acuonling to Dindorus Sicnins, the ancient 
historian, (bough monarcbial, wai free, and their religion, which formed one part of tbeir 
govern meul, was Dmidical. Justice was dispensed, not nnder any written code of laws, bnt 
on equitable principles, and on diBerence of opinion in the assembled congress, appeal was 
made to tbe Arch Druid, whose dedsii-n w*s final. Tbeir religions ceremonies wcr«perfarmed 
on high places, and in deep grov;^ and coiwsted iit worshipping the God of nature, and

was sup^^d was byirDlunlatjrtilbrs and offerings, and in this respect we trace a similarity 
«ith aU^V^Mion* of antiquity. Despite of the eorrnptlons ood philosophical atheism in 
which (be Diuidio«t religion becoiae involved, candour demands of us (bat tba Dmida were

nmbenof tbe Druids to be bamt in the flres they bad prepared for their captive enemivsi 
be alsa destroyed all their consecrated groves and altara, and abolished their ritn and 
eentnonies. But the dominion of the Romans was not Bnally estaliliihed till a.o. 80, when 
Ihey were placed under tbe enmmand of Jnltua Agricola. The first care of the conqiieran 
wa* to introduce civilization and law, and by multiplying the wants of the people, to incline 
them to baMti of industry, and flnally to incorporate them with tbe Roman empire. Agricola 
endcavonred to srcnre bis conquest by erecting a cAdln of forft across the iithmns between 
the Frith of Forth and Clyde, and in tbe year Bl, he extended a chain of Stations from 
Sotway Frith to Tynemootb, which wa* afterwards connected by an eaJthfem rampart raised 
by the Emperor Adrian, as an obstraetlon to the Caledonians, who frequently descended and 
committed tbe most dreadful ravages in the Roman territories. Tn k.D. 308, this earlhem 
twrrier wis strengthened by the irrAif vail, IS Feet bigh and 8 feet thick, built by tbe Emperor 
S«veras, acroa* the island from Sotway Frith to the liver Tyne, stretching a diatapce of BD

was born at Yorii, of a British princels,in tbe year 312, and was the first Imperial convert 
to flie Christian Ihitb. During the residence oF the Romans in thia island, comprehending a 
period dF 400 years, many great pnblie wnrks were accomplished, and they left behind many 
moonments oF their skiil and indttslry. The conquered country was divided into six 
provincea, each of them governed by a pmtor and qnaKtor, tbe former charged with the

4 HISTORT OF DERBYSHIRE. 

Dervenlio, «t l.ittk CbeMxr, near Derb;, is on the gnst Roman ro*d, Rykpild itieel, vhidi 
wu examined bjr Hr. Peggc, aboDI nit; jevs ago, with k> mucb Bltvotioo, as to leave at bat 
liltle to add to bis obKrntioDs. It entan Derbyshire at ModIu' bridge, about two milei 
from BortoD-apoD-Ticpt, and extendi in a direct line orer E^ntoa Heath, to Little OTer. 
From tbii Tillage it rao in a north-eaat directioa to tbe town of Derby, where it was carried 
across Nnn's Qreen, and down Darle; Slade, to Ibe itation at Little Chester. It is generally 
allowed Ibere »aa once a bridge over the Derweat, at this place, in the same line with tha 
street; from tbr> place tbe road is very cTident in dry ac'sona, in the paataree on the north 
side of the rillage. It passes to tbe east of Breadsall Priory, acraa« Morley moor, and 
appears Tery conspicnoiv a little eait of Brackley gale, alter whicb it is visible In Horsley 
Park, it afterward! crosses tbe road Ijing between Nottingham and Wirkswortb. From 
StreM Lane it mns tbroogb the fields to tbe road which lies between Heage and Ripley, and 
passes on 10 the east aide of tbe camp on Feotrich common, and extends towards Okenborpe, 
tbroagb the Day Carrs, at Sbtrland Hall, for Higham, from which it kept the turnpike road 
to Clay cross, and thence to Chesterfield, where It is snpposed there was a station i from tbii 
place no marks of tbe road are Tisibte, but it u sapposed to hare extended on the cut side of 
tbe Rolher to the west of Kitlamanh church, and through the parish of Beigfaton into 
Yorkshire. AnoUier Roman road called Balhom gale, or Balh ^ti, was clearly traced from 
Brough to Buxton, both by Mr. Pegge and Mr. Wbitaken on leaving the atatjou at Brough, 
it is ditcoTcrable bearing to the south-west, and enters the lane leading to Smalldale, where 
the right band edge stands upon it. It wai also visible on Tideswell moor, retaining it* 
original breadth of 18 or 30 feet, iwceping in a long streak of vivid green over the puipta 
niTface of the heath, tiil it reached Fairfield common,' from which place it was found to have 
kept tbe same line to the hill above Bnzton. 

The SixoM Ahtiquitieb of this connty are numeroni and exceedingly interesting. They 
consist of tnmuti, encampmenlR, vestiges of castltn, and religions houses, as will be seen in tha 
various histories of Derby, Duffidd, Gresley, ke. 

Though we meet with few records or monuments to illustrate the history of Britain 
previous to the appeaimnce of tbe Romans j hovever, Pilkington in his View of Derbyshire, 
published in IT89, says, that from an attentive survey, we shall find that at this diiUnt 
period the ilate of tiie county Is not involipd entirely in darknen. One of the moat striking 
moDomenls of antiquity in Dcri^siiire, is situate in the parish of Youlgreave, and in the 
hamlet or township of Hiddleton, called Arbelows, or Arbor-low. It coneiils of an area 
encompassed by a broad ditch, which it bounded by a high bank. Tbe area measnrei from 
east to west 16 yards, and from north to south 32 yards( the ditch is six yards wide, and 
tbe bank about fire yards high, having openings on the north and south, and on the east 
■ide of the south opening is a barrov. In tbe area are several stones of diSerent sizes; about 
thirty large ones lie round the boarder, having the smallest end pointing to the centre, mostly 
atMut five feet long, three broad, and one thick. It is said they formerly stood obliquely 
upon one end, hating about fourteen smaller ones irregularly intermixed, and three lying In 
tbe centre, of which one is lai^r than any Other in the area. It is generally believed by 
antiquarians, that monuments of tbia kind are of civil or religions institation, and were either 
places of council, conrta of Justice, or designed for the riles of worship. It seems probable to 
suppose, from llie number and dze of the stones lying near the centre of the area, that there 
formerly stood a cromlech or altar, in this situation. One of them, which was probably 
supported by tbe other two, measures three yards in length, and two in hreadlb, aud is about 
one foot thick ; upon this broad stone it is very likely that the sacriCcei were eflered. Some 
years ago, a transverse sectioD was made of the barrow mentioned, and in it were found the 
homsof a aUg, and it seems probable the animal to which they belonged had been offered 
up in tacriSce. On Friday, the 33rd May, 164S, this barrtne wai again opened. Tbe Rev. 
Stephen Isaacson having obtained permission for that pnrpose, from his Grace the Duke of 
Ratland j accompanied by Thomas Bateman, Jan., Esq., so well known for hii sdentiBo and 
pemvering reiearebea into tbe Britiab antiquities. These gentlemen cumnwneed «ie»v«ting

beaotifiil am, in wbicb the depoiit bad rested, and Ibe eutire man) of bones and Ihe kist were 
remoml. Among the debrin were found a bone pio and Bint of Ibe rudest workmanship, 
prariag that tbc interment was aboat 3,300 jeara old, and eatablishing the fiwt that the 
D>m ID Dcrbyihire were erected by Ihe independent Briliah Aborigines, long before the toil 
was defiled by the foot of Ibe Saxon invader. It » much to be regretted that the Doka of 
Rutland's ageDt interposed to prevent a complete swTey. No donbt, when the matter is laid 
belbn his Grace, the anderloking will be resumed, and Hr. Itaacwu and Mr. Bateman reap 
tbeJDit reward of their ATBhawlogieal labonn. It is very remarkabte, that a fragment of 
ipherial hepatic pyrites was found in the deposit, specimens of which Mr. Balemnii had on 
two pierioDs occaiions diKovend iu iimilar positioai; tbeas wera nndoabtedly worn ai 
omameut*, or ued as annleti by oar mde forefathera. Mr. Isaacson met with sioiilar otgects 
amongst the natives of Sonlb America. 

The following observations on Ibe general character of depodts, serve to shew in a great 
measure, the dates of the iutermeots in these Lotci. If, for example, bones are found, 
eipedally burnt bones, nnaccompanied by any, even the rsdest instruments, we may safely 
affinn that time belonged to lbs aborigines, and ara of Ihe remotest antiquity. The discovery 
offlintand bone pins, of barbarous worknuoship, with occasional rude earthen vessels, with 
the boman remains, anj be called the second era in the funeral history of the early Britons, 
whilst the third epoch is ckarty defined by the brass da^er or celt of elegant proportions, 
aod probably of Phnoieian origin, wbicb are found near the head of Ihe principal Interment, 
and sometimes accompanied by a stone hammer or celt. The itun knife and spear head, 
with shields nf the same metal, are certain proofs of a Saion barrow ; whilst Roman lomuli 
are remarkabla for the beanty of Ihe pottery, and the coins universally found Ibetcin, and it 
is by no means nDtunal to Bud the primeval intennent of burnt bones beneath a secondary 
one, when the bronze iDttmment of Ibe Brilon, or iron spear, or knire, or shield, of the Saxon 
denote a mach later era. 

The EskLT Comhibcb of the BDcieDt Britons was canied on by barter without Ihe aid 
of money, but about the commencement of the Christian era, a mint master was invited over 
into Britain from the continent. A mint was erected at Colchester, and moi>cy of gold, 
■Qver and copper was ooiued in that eily, about forty diSerent specimens having reached ont 
liiDe. Mines both of silver and gold were worked in the island during the reigns of Augnstns 
and Tc^an. Cambden ataerls a gold mine was discovered in Bedford, a few yean before his 
time. Tlie Ramans drew their revenues troai various sources, commeree, mines, legacies, 
bouses, and beads, all contribnled to supply their eiaetJons, and as they bad suggested to the 
nativas the mode of making money, tbuy did not fail to supply the eihaiuted treasoi? at 
Rome, from Ibe indnsliy of Britain. A succession of ages bad almost idenliBed the Britons 
with tbeir Roman conquerors, and when the emperors pressed by difficulties at borne and 
weakened by tbeir possessions abroad, began to withdraw tbeir l^oos from this island, the 
inhalHlants importnned them to remain, to protect them from the incursioas of the Piets and 
Scots; the wall of Sevems was DO longer a barrier to these semi- barbarians. In i.D. 450, 
two years after the last Roman legion had quitted England, Hengist and Horsa, two brothers, 
the deMxndants in the fourth generation from Woden, one of the prinripal gods of the 
Saxons, embarked their army to the nnmber of 1600, on board of three vessels, and landing 
in the isle of Thanet, immediately marched to the defence of the Britons, nho bad invited 
than over to protect them against their oorttaem invaden. Having expelled Ibe enemy, the

The merit of eradicating this baneful sapentiUoD, by tbe introduction of Christianity, *ai 
reserved for a Ronutn Pontiff, Gregoty, lamamed the Gieal, who in tbe year 097, sent 
Angnstioe, a monk, into tbe south, and Paulinua to the north of England, by whose preaching 
tbe Cbrtslian religion made sncfa rapid progress that It soon became the prevailing faith, and 
Anguitioe wai elevated to the rank of Arehbiihop of Canterbniy; and Pauiiaus, Archbishop

iDlerior of the country, they took possessiou of tbe kingdom of Uercia, and made Repandune 
(Repton) their head qnarlen. These pagan marandera burnt and deetroyed villages and 
monaateriea, abd spared neither age nor sen, which caused the Anglo Saion mooarchs to 
confederate for their mutual dereace, and the invaders were at length anbdned. At thii

speedily blasted by the re-appearance oftbe Danes, who lor aome ages had kept the Anglo 
Saxons in a state of perpetual alarm. Tor upwards ot forty yeaia, and throng^ five saccmive 
reigna, the Danish invaden continned the struggle, and at the death of Eiheldred, his brother 
Alfred, Ibe succesMr to the throne, was obliged to abandon tbe field, and aeek an asylum fn 
the cottage of a swineherd. Emerging afterwards from bis retreat, he expelled the iniaders, 
and contributed easentiatly to lay the foundation of those Instilutioas, on wbicb tbe glorious 
aupentruclDre of English liberty was finally erected. Alfred soon perceived that an island 
without a mariline force must ever be at the mercy of every piratical plunderer; he tberefore 
determined to store bis ports with shipping, and vessels larger than those in use in the 
Burroanding nations were built, many of which carried sixty oars. The unremitting atlentroB 
of this illustriouB prince tu the navy, contributed to iucreaw (he blessings of bis reign, and 
bas obtained for him the title of the /'ofAfl- o/tAe Brildk Navy. 

In 1013, Sweyn, king of Denmark, landed with an army in this country, to revenge a 
cruel nassacre of the Danes, wbicb bad taken place a short time before, having brought bis 
fleet up the Trent to Oaintborough, and landed bit forces, it created such terror that (be

body of Nonoan adventureni, and the roll of Battle Abbey given by Ralph floliothead, 
contaiua the names of 639 Normans, who alt became claimant* upon the fair lerrilory of 
Britajo, and the Saion lords were forced to resign their poatessions. The Conqueror, in 
parcelling out the lands of the kiogdom amongst bis foUuwen, gave oil the lands and 
teaementi upon them, in Derbyshire, to seventeen ditliDCt proprietors ; King William, the 
Bishop of Cbe>ter, the Abbey of Burton, Hogb the Earl, Roger of Ptncton, Henry d* Ferrien, 
William Peverel, Vf'alter de Aincourt, GeotTrey Alielia, Ralph the aoD of Hubert, Ralph de 
Bumn, UasCDit Uosurd, Gilbert de Gand. Nigel de SuOord, Robert the son of William, 
Boger de Busli, Tbanes of the Kiog. The tenants who occupied land under these difTereot 
pmprieton are also somciimes noticed, and in the coniae of (be work aome of the most 
curioai and remarli^le of the tenures will be given. 

Afl« ao migb^ an agitation u that produced by the conigaest, some jean were uecestary 
to restore a calm; a violent struggle waa made to expel the Normans, and York waa the 
raUyiog point of the patriot army. To snppren this furmidabte insorrectian, William 
repaiml in penon into the north, at the head of a powerful army, swearing by the " splendour 
of Ood,*' which was his naual oath, that not a soul of bis eneniiee should be left alive. 
Acoordiog to Williaoi of Malmsbni?, confirmed by others, the whole country was laid waste 
fnim tbs Unmber to the Tees, and for nine yean neither the spade nor the plough was pnt 
into the granad, which is the reason why vatia so often occurs in Doomsday book, iti 
Vorkshin. Knowing the detestation in which he was held, the Norman bastard, as bistoriani 
tioignatB him, entertained a constant Jealousy of the English, and ha obliged them every 
ni-ht at the hour of eight o'clock, toeitinguiih their fires and candles, at the loll of a bell, 
which obtained the Dame of (be " curfew." Having by these sanguinary atrocities reduced 
tbe eonntiy to repoee, the Conqueror in 1080, nosed a survey to be undertaken of all the 
lands in tba kingdom, on tbe model of tbe book of Winchetler, compiled hy order of tha 
Great Alfnd, Tbia survey wai registered in a national record, called Doonudov Book, in 
■hieb the extent of land in each district, the stale it waa in, whether meadow, pasture, wood, 
M- arable, tbe name of the proprietor, the tenure by which it was held, and the valua at 
which it was estimated, were all duly entered. In order to make Ibis document complete, 
and its authority popetnal, commisdonen were appointed to superintend the sorTey, and the 
returns wen made under tbe sanction of joriea of all orders of freemen in each district. 
After a labonr of liz years, the bosiness was accomplished, and this important document, Iha 
best memorial of the Conqueror, written in itoman with a mialure of Saion, ii stilt preserved 
in tbe Chapter House at Westminster. For many centuries Doomsday Book remained 
uDprinted, but in the 40tb year of the reign of George III, bit majeity, by the recommendation . 
of parlioDicot, and with a proper regard to the public interest, directed that it shootd be 
printed for tbe use of tbe memben of both Hooses of Parliament, and tbe public libraries of 
the kingdom, which order hai been duly obeyed. The counties of Northumberland, 
Cnmbeiland, Westmorland, and Dnrham, are not described in Doomsday Book,— probably 
owing to the deaolation in which they were at tMlC time invalved. Through all ages this 
" Book of Judicial Verdict," will ha held in estimation, not only for its antiquity, bat also 
for its intrinsic value. At the time when it was rompleted, it afforded the king an exact 
koowledgw of his own laud and lerenae, while the rights of his sntgects in aU disputed cases

and wai inbaeqaeDtly granted to such penoas ai wen then in royal favoor. 

Clihite.— Tbe climate ii much colder in the northern and western parts, wbleb tennioale 
the principal middle cbaio of bills from the north, than in the soDthero, lower and more 
ibelteied regions. Dr. Aiktn Id his " DescriptiDn of the Country round Manchester," obserres, 
that the moantunoDs parts of this county is disttngiiisbed from the rest by the greater qnantity 
of rain which falls in it. At Chatsworth, which is by no meani the highest tract, about 33iD. 
of rain have been fonod to fall nnoDally at a medium. The High Peak is pecoliarly liable to 
veiy violent storms, in which the rain descends in lorrenti, bo bs frequently to causa great 
ravages in the lands; it is also subject to Tcty bigb miads. These causes, together with tbe 
elevation of tbe country, render it cold, so that Tegelatiou is backward and aukiudly. Some 
kinds of grain will not grow at all in the Fe^, and others seldom ripeu till very late in tbe 
year. Tbe atmospheir is however pure and healthfol, and tbe higher situations an generally 
free from epidemic diseases; though agues and fevers sometimes have prevailed in tbe valleys. 
One disease, bowever, is endemic in these parts, and even as far aonth as Derby; this is lbs 
broncbocele, or Derby ueck. 

Derbyshire and Nottinghamshira had bat one high sheriff till the lOtb of Elizabeth ; and 
they appear to hare been divided into eighteen hundreds; for in Domesday Book we flud that 
if the king's peace given with bis hand or seal was broken in Dertjscyre or SKoltinjkamKyre, 
it was to be amended by the eighteen hundreds, each hundred paying eight pounds ; oftbis 
amends the king bath two parts and the earl one. In the same document il is also written, 
" Ifany man according to law shall be banbihed for any guilt, none but the king can restore 
peace to him. A thane having more than sii manors, doth not give relief of his land, eieept 
to the king only eight pounds. If he have sii or less, he giveth relief three marlu of silver; 
wheresoever be remaiuelh in a borough or out. If a thane having sac and sac forfeit bis laud 
between the king aud tbe earl, they have tbe moiety of bis land and money : and his lawful 
wife, with bis legitimate beira, if there be any, have the other half." The earl here referred to 
was tbe Conqueror's legidmate son, William Peverel, who was tbe governor of Nottingham 
caille, and lord of tbe exteusive honour of Peverel, which extended largely into both oanntiea.

EHlHlKt Mem- — Speaking of penoiu of emiDence connected with Derbyshire, Mr. Kinder 
calif it "the ampbi theatre of renowned penons," and a Dumerous list ot worthies, who were 
eminent in literature, the arts and science!, in arms and in cbaritf, will be found recorded in 
the histories of the paruhei where thej went bom or resided. We will, bowerer, in Ibil place 
Dotise Mr. Flamstoul and Mr. Brindlejr. 

Mr. Ftawattai, one of the moil eminent utronomere whom England or anj other connt^ 
erer prodnced, waa bom at Derbf, in 1646, and reoeived the flnt part of his education at the 
Aec Khool, in tbat town, bnC wm ioterropted by a bad state of health in bis preparation for 
the UnlTenitj. Daring bi* tickoea, having met with an titronomiciil work, he received 
mndi entertainment from the perusal of it, and formed a taste for those studies, from the 
•UHeaful prosecntioo of which he afterwards acquired the most distinguished reputation. 
Hli But attempts in astronomy wen calculations of the places of the planets, and of an 
•drpK of the sun b; the Caroline tables. R; meana of tbe latter of these observations, he 
beeaow acquainted with Mr. Emanuel Halton, a mathematician of some eminence, who 
Raided at HingSeld manor, and supplied him with the bekt astronomical works then ettanL 
From tbh time Mr. Flamstead prosecuted his favourite study with great SDCcess. In the 
year 1669, he calculated some remarkable eclipses of the fiied stars with great precision. 
Tbii d>tpla7 procured him the thanks of the Koyal Society, and the correapoodence of some 
of it* most learned members. In tbe year I6T4, passing through Loudon on his way to tbe 
Uniteni^, he wai iDfaraiird by Sir Jonas Mooie, that a tme account of the tides would be 
highly acceptable to his m%iesty, and he embraned the opportunity of recommending himself 
to the Eavoor of tbe king by gratifying his withes. He also constructed two barometers, at 
the reqneat of Sir Jonas Hoore, who shewed them as great curiosities to the king and the 
Daka 9f Xork, and accompauiad Uiem with Mr. Flamstesd's directions, fnr judging of the 
wniher by these instruments. 

This great patton and friend, Sir Jonas, the year following, brongbt Mr. Flamstead a 
wamnt to be astronomer to the king, with a salary of £100 a-year, payable out of the 
erdnaooe. Tbi* appointment did not lessen his inclination to go to the church, and a few 
months alterwards be was ordained by the bishop of Ely. He resided at Qnenwich in the 
■jmt IS12, whilst the royal obserialory was built, and began hit observations in the charaoter 
el sstronomar to his m^etty. In the year 1684 he was presented to tbe liiing of of Buntow, 
iBSaneyi but fats attention was still principally directed to that sdeoce which had been 
the means of raising him to tbe honourable sitnation In which be waa now placed. 

Afhr having made man; important discoveries and Improvements in astronomy, ai may 
be seen from perusing the PhilotophicaJ Transactions, published at this time, he died on 
tbe lastday of December, 1719. About six years alter his decease, his great work, Bitloria 
Cieleslis Britannica, was pnblisbed and dedicated to the king. It bad been prepared and 
part printed before his death, and will be a laiting and noble monument to hb memory- 
He compowd the British Catalogue of Fised Stars, contuning about three thousand, which 
Is twice the number of those contained in the catalogue of Hevelius. To each of these stars 
he ha* anseied its longitude, latitude, right ascension, and distance from the pole-itar; 
together with the variation of right oacension, and declination, while the longitude increaaea 
adegree. 

The great accnrac; and eilent of Mr. Flanutead's obsetvaliona are deserving of 
admiration, nor has any age or coontry produced a more emioeut asttonomer, if we except 
the late eelebnited Dr. Harschel, whose discoveiiei have taind tbe wlonishnMnt of all Europe,

The canal was of onibrm level tbronghont, and oonaeqoently had to be carried aeroes the 
Irwell, in order to bring it to Uancfaester. Thinking it dne to hia noble emplojer 1p give him

retained Us confidence in hia own engineer, and tbe work was begnu in September, 1 760, and 
llnisbed in (ha July following. This was the fint of a ancoeaaion of works of tbe ssme

ShefGeld road, a little above Hathemge, 'a exceedingly interealing. Sorronttded by tbe bleak 
and barren moors, scattered over >lth gigantic racks, thrown by some terrible commotion in tbe 
wildest confunon, tbe valley mddenly opetu to view in all lis lovelinen and beanty. Tbe steep 
■ides of the vale ore seen dotted over by a stria of well -cultivated endosnres; and tbe village 
of Hope, with its heaven- pointed gpire, standing in the distance; while thi; Derweat ii aeen 
winding its silent course, here and there darting its silvery rays Ihrongh tbe thickly interwoven 
foliage, and giving to the whole a charm of tbe most eiquiaite beauty. Another pleasing and 
romantic view it seen as yon enter tbe valley from tbe bills above Caitleton. Directing your 
eye on tbe north side of die valley, yon see the country boldly swelling into hills, and at Icogtb 
terminaltng in several high points, at a considerable distano:. At the bottom is seen the town 
or Castlelon, and to the sooth of it, tbe rutni of an ancient caitle, standing on a bold and 
abrupt eminence. Descending from [bis elevated position, fresh objncts no less striking present 
themsetvei. Mam Tor raises his loily head, nnd seems with an awfnl majesty to overlook this 
scene of beauty and grandeur. The valley does not extend westward beyond the town of 
Castleton, hut here forms a most noUe and magnificent ampbitbeatre j lis back rising in many 
parts 1,000 feet, and the diimeler of its front measuring nearly two miles. If the valley be 
pursued down the vale of the Derweot, it is of great length, extending to the distance of for^ 
miles, even below the town of Derby. In the course of tbe valley tbe views eie extremely 
diversified, and the most beautiful and romantic scenery conliDually presents itself in the moat 
delightful succession. 

The course of the Derwent fhim Hathenage, by Chatswortb, Darley, Uatlock, and 
Duffield, as far as the town of Derby, will be fnlly illnstrated in tbe course of tbe present 
workj as well as Bonsai Dale, Matlock Dale, Moasa] Dale, Uiddleton Dale, Cave Dale, and 
Latbktll Dale,fcc. Thb uoumtdn UMI8T0NB Koci on the north-west, is noted for the 
striking appearance it presents, and the singular civebhb which oRen engulf tbe streams, 
traversing them in K-ubterraoeous courses several miles io length, constitnle tbe most peculiar 
features of Derbyshire. The most remarkable of these openings are the Peak Cavern, or 
Devil's Cave, at Castleton; Poole's Hole, near Buxton; Eldon Hole, in Peak Forest i 
Bagshaw, or the Crystallzed Cavern, near Bradwell; and Merlin's Cave, a little sonlb of 
Eyam Cbnrch. These are the most interesting in the high Peak, and will be more particalaily 
described in their tespectire places. It appears by the account of the miners in Peak Forest, 
that all the bigb ground lying between Penyfoot and Cestlctoa, abounds with clefts and 
caverns, many of which All tbe miners with astonishment at their grandeur; and in one In 
Cbelmerton Dale, a miner fonod a ring, though he could discover no entrance except the one 
be had mode. Similar instances are noticed by otbei miners of human skeletous having been 
found at various depths of the earth, particularly io the neighbourhood of Monyash and 
Sheldon. There are several openiu)^ of the ground on the noRhwest side of Peak Forest, 
called " stcaJJoNf" by the country people i they derive this name fhnn the total disappearanc*

Miatifieil wilb admixtures. Miner* consider this stralum to be a cover for veins of lead ores 
in the Hmestone beneath. 

Tbe moat aodent method of working the lead mines, appears to have been by making fires 
■poo the veins, la crack the checks, and loosen the vein materials; anerwards gunpowder was 
introduord, and a bole boitd into the rock seierat inches deep, end gunpowder put at tbe 
bottoni, upon it was placed a slug and ellppet ; alteraards the gun or jumper was invented ; 
(ram boUi which inethods, in the ramming, sparks ensaed, which oilen injured the workmen. 
About tbe end of the seveoteenth century, some miners were Invited from Saxony, who 
iDtr«dn(ed the ikewer and fuse, the practice itill in nse. 

When the lead ore is got tram the mine, it is separated from its miltures, termed deadt, 
by knocking widi diflkrent shaped iron hammers into three assortments, called, bing, peasy, and 
smytham; binK is the largest size, peasy is the size of peas, and nnytham small grains; they 
are washed well, in which process, tbe very minute particles are carried away into reservoirs, ' , 
and aflerward* collected by tbe name of bolland, and measured by the dish or standard 
neasnre, which was wronght iu the reign of Henry VIII., and contains fourteen pints. It is' 
placed hi the Barmote Court at Wlrksworth. This measure beiug liable to great imposition, 
by refuse being mixed with the ore, a disb has lately been iutruduced, by which tbe ore U sold

MiNRBiL CocBTi, CUSTOMS, &C. — The principal part of Ihe cnnnl]' where lead ore ii 
found in coneiderable qnanliiy, is knoiru by the name of Ibe Kiog'i Field. Nearly the whole 
hundred of VI iriiiwnrlh comes aodcr (bit denominatioo. TbJi doei not appear alway* to have 
beeo the ea«v, for in Ihe time of tbe Saiona it belonged to the abbey at Repton. Bui Mr. 
Pegge imagines that iu Ibi^ year 8T4, when thia religious boD*e waa deslmyrd by the Danm, 
it was escheated lo Ibe crown ; lince it appcan to hare been in iti poaseaaion when Domesday 
Book was compiled. As to that part of the Kiug'a Field which is utaated in the High Peak, 
il ii supposed that ever »uce the Norman conqnesl, ilhaa been the property of tbe crown, and 
in Ibe same custody with the castle. All that port of tbe county which come* under Ibe 
denomiualioQ of the Kiug'i Field, bai been from time immemorial let upon lipase. The 
present farmer of tbe minenl dudes in the High Peak, is tbe Dnke of Deroushire ; and in the 
hundred of Wirkaworlh, Peler Arkwright, Esq. They bate each a steward and barmasters in 
the different districts which they hold nnder the croon. The iteward presides as judge in their 
barmote conrlB,and with twenty-louT jurymen, chosen every hslfyear, determine all disputes 
which arise respecting the working of Ibe mines. For Ibis purpose, Ibey meet twiee in the 
year, and if requisite may, upon proper notice, be summoned still oftener. In Ihe High Peak, 
the courts are held at Mouyath, and iu Ihe hundred of Wirksworth, at that town. The office 
of barmaster cansisls of various brancfaesi but tbe most materia] are, putting minen in 
potartsioD of veins which they had discovered, and collecUng that portion of tbe ore, to which 
tbe lessee of the crovn or lord of the maaor has a claim. When the miner has found a new 
Tein of ore in the King's Field, protided it be not in an orchard, garden, or highroad, be may 
acquire an e\clnsive title to it by a proper application to tbe barmaster of the liberty. The 
method of doing which is, in (he presence of two jurymen, making out in a pipe or rake work 
two meares of ground, each containing twenty-uine yards, and in a flat work,' fourteen yards 
square. In recompence for the trouble, Ihe barmasler ia entitled to the first dish of ore which 
is gotten. If a miner neglects, beyond a certain limited time, lo avail himself of his discoveiy, 
the barmasler may then dispoM of it to any person who may wish lo try his fortune in it. The 
superintending tbe measurement of tbe ore, and laknig that proportion to which the lessee or 
lord of the manor is entitled, ii attended with some trouble and difficulty to tbe barmosteri 
for theu claims are exceedingly various in ditfereut parts. Peasy and bolland were formerly 
conudered eiempt In the year 1761, the Duke of Devonshire asserted and eslablitbed tbe 
claim of tbe crown on them in the High Peak ; and the succesi of bis Grace induced tbe other 
leoee, Hr. BoUes, a very short time al^er, to contest tbe point with tbe miners iu his division ; 
and fur this purpose, he threw the cause into Chancery, and obtained a verdict in his fannirj 
•o that all sorts of ore are now subject to a toll throaghoul tbe Peak of Derbyshire. However, 
the proportion of ore which it due, and that which is really taker), are iu very few places (be 
same. 1'he farmers of tbe mineral duties seldom insist upon Ibe full citent of their claims. 
That part of the King's Field in Wirkswortb hundred it divided into eight liberties, which, 
Ifaongh leased by the same person, and subject to the same duties, pay in very dilTereut 
proportions. In Bonsai and Bratsington, every thirteenth dish it dne, but a twenty-fiFth only 
is takeui ueiiher ii subject to tilbe. Cromfurd paya eveij thirteenth dish. The tithe, 
smylham and bolUnd excepted, is every fortieth. In Ellon, Ihe twenty.flftb dish is taken, and 
every ten lb is due us litbt to the Dijke of Rutland; at the capital mines be takes every 
ninetevulb, but at the smaller, ^nes at discretion. One-half of the bbM^ «f Uatlodi pays k

tioantity of ore than an; other libertf , a twenly -firth i) taken in <oms places, and a thirteenth

miit>BC« made to the lessee of the ctokd, when he atwerted his right to eierj thirteenth dish 
of all hindi of ore. Thew obierrations have toMy a rereimce lo the Kii>g'9 Field i but in the 
Low Peak, there are alio minei irhicb nre private property ; in which caw it concerns ench 
parly lo CDgafe od the mort adTanlagoous lenni lo themseUea. The cuttom; and reguletions 
are Dot materially different, in Ihe High Peak, from (boae of tbe hundred of Wirkswortb. A 
meare in the King's Field ii hen anmenhat larger; it measun^s 33 yardi; two tcearet are 
giTcn to every miner who discovert a vein, and the miner can dispose of the vein as he pleawa. 
Id the King's field, etery thirteenth dish is due tc- the crawn, but a twenty-firth is commonly 
taken. The tithe is every tenth, of which a third is paid to the eiecuton of the late Philip 
Gell, Esq., of Hoplon. The Dnke of Devonshire, as iewee, generally takes every lineenth dish 
fbr hii than of lot and tithe. The executors of the late P. Gell, Esq., are entitled to Ihe above 
ptQpoTtion of tithe, ill the liberties of Bakewell, Hope, Tideswell, aud Ajibfonl. Caslteroo is a 
royal Dunor; it pays every twenty-finh tn the crown, and every tenth dish as tithe lo the vicar. 
Then arc aln Kveral private lordships in the High Peak. In Aahford, which belimgs to Ihc 
Dnke of Devonshiro, Ibe tolls are the same n» in the King's Field. Eyam and Stoney 
tfiddleton are private property; the tot taken is every thirteenth dish. The tithe due to (he 
lecfor of Eyam is a penny for every diih. Tideawell is private properly; the lot or toll is 
every thirteenth; Ibe twentieth is taken. At Littun, every twentieth is taken, but It Is not 
sabjeet to tilbe. Peak Forest is the sola property of the Duke of Devonshire, aud is under the 
same Isolations as Litton. There are a few other liberties in which lead ore is golteu; hot 
the laws and cnstoms ai« go near the same as those mentioned, that it is ueedlesa to recite 
Ihrm. Beddea the claims which have been mentioned, theie is another called cope. In the 
Wiiluworth hnndrtd it is fourpence. In the High Peak sixpence per load, and is paid by the 
bnyeroftlM ore, to the leneesofthe mineral duties Or the lord of the manor. Some yeaia 
ago, attempts were made to extract silver from the lead, hut there are now no works o f this kiud. 

Sulphur is contained in lend ore, which when smelling rises npon the Barface.and is carried 
np the chimney, where, by means of a vaoU or horizontal chimney, a (wnsidenible quantity 
nay be collected. Dr. Watioa says, that Derbyibire ore contains between ou eighth and a 
Btnth part of sulphur. 

la the year 1TS3, the mines in the hundred ofWirksworth yielded 1,306 fodderx, and those 
in the liberty of Crich abont 300. AC Ashoter, dnring the six years preceding 1782, the mines 
bad produced annually upon an Bvtrrage, 8,011 fodders; about 3,000 fodders were estimated 
as the produce of the High Peak; to that the annual produce of lead in Derbyshire was 
brtweeo five and nx thonsaud fodden or tons. 

U ha* been almost universally admitted, that the mining business has, of tale years, 
conridnably decHned, and that the produce of the mines ia not so large nov ai formerly. 
The low price of lead, no doobC, woold for some years prove a great check to speculation in 
■o bazardont an undertaking. Many valuable mines have at various periods beeii abandoned, 
(Tom Ihssr bdrig overpowered with water ; Co remedy which, many leiels lo carry off thewater 
have been driven at very great eipunse, and in many instances steam engines have been erected 
■t a eonaderKbte cort for the same purpose. The Gregory Mine, near A-'hover, by the aid of 
a steam engine a* early as IT.K, yielded lead in the tweuty-flve years following to the value of 
£109,966; lbs produoe annnally being l,)ll fodder. It is said the Portaway Mlue, near 
Wlsster, abool the sama period, produced ore to the value of £1,000 in >eveii weeks. Such 
(anmrable efaaugea support the spirits of the miners; aud whilst they continue to take place, 
Iba woridng of the lead mine* in Derbyshire will uot become totally disregarded or neglected. 

Tlie (nginal iohabitaats of this county, at the most early period, who happeued to In

At SArrinwil (betwixt Chelmertou and Baiton), some great convaUion of natnre baa rent 
the strata, which after baviag basseled snccessively wettward from Botsorer C«ille to this place, 
a distance of about thirty miles, laddenly change tbeir bassets to tbe east, and tben descend 
n with a rapid westward inclinatioo to Cooms Moss, a distance only of five miles, 
n the coonty. These strata, bassctlng towards each other, but separated by a

tbe agent to effixt their separation at Sberbrook, where the bottom of the fractnic » aridently 
appears, and there can be no donbt that this shock was produced by tbe efEMi of beat in sodm 
grand convnliion of natnre, thoDgb beyond tbaaniiali of recorded lime. 

The Firif Omamenl made of Derbyshire spar, was a vaie of masnve flbrons carbonate of 
lime, commonly called Watricle (constantly forming in limestone caverns), by Mr. Henry 
Watson, statusry , of Saliewell, in the year 1743, at the request of Lord Dnncannon. from tbe

•gainst this spar lying in the road, which on bis lordsbip examining, be so ranch admired, 
that be expressed a wiib that an ornament should be made of it, and sending Mr. Watson a 
design, a vase was accordingly made; from vbence arose the maanfacturr (since established at 
Derby, CastletoD, Buxton, Matlock, &c.) of the amethystine Suate of lime, commonly called 
Bine John, of which each district produces its peenliar colour, and other fossils so universally 
admired. Gyptnm, alabaster or plaster stone, classed by geologists aotong'it the eartbs. is 
found in great purity amongst the red marl of this county ; It is also sent to tbe potteries.

wealth ; but coat, leul, iron and marble are those which chivflj engage the indniliy and 
enterprise of tbe iiibabitants. 1'he Cihit FieU lies along the easteru border, and is from IS to 
Id miles in width, with narrow branches extending from it into Nottinghamshire and along 
(be border of Leicestersbin, southward. On tbe Vorkubire Iwrder, the Geld or rake, itself 
widens, and occupies a targe district of that uortbern county. The whole extent of tbe coal

RiiLwiTS. — This connty now enjnyi bj iu railroads pre-eminent means of faoititating 
general communication and commercial intercoane. Of these the Leicester and Derby, and 
the Derby and Leeds sections of the Great Midland, North Midland, and North of England 
lines, claim our first attention. The Derby and Ixicester section, or Midland Conntias' 
rsilway, which joina tbe pirmingbam and London railway at Rugby, is 7S miles in length. It 
enters this coaaty at tbe soatb-eanteni comer, near the conflnence of the Trent with the Soar, 
and after having been joined by a braneh trom Nottingham throogh Long Eaton, paisea 
tbiongh Sawley, Breaston, and Spondon, to Derby. This section, from Derby to its jnnctioB ' 
with tbe Nottiagbam branch, was opened to tbe publie on the 4th of June, IB39, and rrom 
the junction of these to Leicester, on the 5lh of May, 1840. The Derby and Leeds section, 
or North Midland Great Trunk railway, which coostitntes a central link between tbe other 
important railways on tbe north, centre, and •ootb of England, ii T3( milee in length, with 
npwards of 200 bridges and T tunnels, in its course, meainnng together Dearly S^ miles. The 
co»t was about £3,000,000, though the ntimale was only £1,500,000. The whole line was 
completed in little more than three years. George and Robert Stephenson, with theirassistant, 
Mr. Swanwick, were the engineers. It was opened through all Ibis county, and aa far as 
Botberham.on the llthof May, 1840; and throughout the whole line on tbe 1st of Joly, 
1840. This railway is B splendid exception to the comparatively unintemting sceneiy of 
nulways in general. Its eonrse lies along the valleys of the Derwent, tbe Rother, the Don, the 
Dearoe, the Calder, and the Aire; aflTording views of beautiful parks, seats, villages, woods and 
ruins. It ia bordered nearly all the way by lertile meadows end pastures, skirted with wooded 
bills, which constitntp, in passing them, an almost uninterrapted panoramic picture; and the 
magnificent viaducts, aqueducts and bridgea, with station houses of tsatefui architecture, 
contribute mnch to give admiration and delight to the traveller. Prom Derby the North 
Midland railway mns northward, by Duffield and other villages, and through Hilford tnnnel, 
836 yards in length, with rich and handsome arched frontinga, to Belper, throngb which it 
mns in a cutting lined with masonry ; at this place it has no less than IS bridges crossing It 
in tbe space of a mile. It then by two timber bridges, each aboot 400 feet in length, and 
containing in all 300,000 cnbic feet of timber, crosses Belper pool, where the Derwent expands 
in a broad sheet, with a wooded island In tbe midst A short Innnel, a flns viaduct acrots the 
Derwent, and another short tnnnel at Hagwood, are then passed, and the grand and interesting 
works at the principal crossiDg of the Derwent are reached. The river runs in the bottom of 
the valley, with the tnmpike road at some distance above it; the railroad passes obliquely over 
both by a roagnifieeni viaduct; and, in the same place, is itself croned b; the Cromford canal, 
in an aqueduet bnilt by the company. Bull bridge, and Lodge-hill tnnnel, 360 yards in 
length, and Sonth Wingfield station, are then passed; the column of Crich Stand, where 
mountain limestone abounds, being Been on the led OD the distant hills. After passing a deep 
•ad eitensive cutting, opened out into the romantjc valley of tbe Amber, the summit of the 
line in Derbyshire is reached at Clay Crnas tnnnel, which is one mile in length, thn entrance 
being fhmted with a Moorish gateway, having a castellated circular lower on either side, and an

In Ih* jeat 1284, King Qenrj III. sent his son. Prince Edward, into DsrbTshire, to wreak 
TrageanM upon Boberl Earl of Dcrb;, then one of the most aclive of tbe barons in rebellion

with Nottinghamshire in the loanufacUire of hosiery and laee, with Lancashire in thai of 
cotton, and with Yorbsbira in those of iron, cutlery, and woollen cloth. The latter is eanied 
on M the north extremity of the county, and baa nearly given place to the manufacture of 
eoUou, iDtTodneed into this county by Sir Richard Arkwrighl in 17T1 (see Croni/ord, page

aion for endeaionring even now to establish eitra.parochisl immnniUes. 

EcoLiBiatrical. Histobt.— Tbe christian religion was not propagated so early in Darby- 
ahin as in aome other part* of Britain. In the year 5M, Augustine, by tbe order of Oregoij 
&t Oiaai, came into ibis kingdom, and in tbe space of one year oouTerted 1,000 Saxons in 
Kent. Bnt the gospel wu nut preached in the kingdom of Hercia till Ibe reign ot Fenda, 
Igog after tba abolition of idolatry in all die neighbouring iIbIcb of the Saxon Heptarebyf 
At leaglh this Monarch, having sent his son Peada into Northumberland, to solicit Id 
nmiage, AlchflUa, the daughter of King Osway, he was converted to Christianity, by tha 
pcnoanre discotltses ot the venerable Bede. The object of his mission being accomplished, 
he named to his father's dominions, accompanied bj a number of celebrated divines, who 
immcdialdy began to spread tht> doctrines and precepts tit the gospel with great success 
among 6it Mereians. The aged Fenda, seems to have viewed these events with indifference ; 
be BOon after entered into a *u with Oiway, the Northumbrian Prince, and being defeated 
■od slain in battle, his dominions were seiied by the conqueror; who, in eonjuoction with 
P(ada, remained in possrsiion ot Hercia for three years, during which Christianity was de- 
dared the established religion. At the end of this period, the Mercians, weaiy of snbjecllon 
to a foreign yoke, revolted, and being soccessfol, conferred Ibe crown on Wnltere, one of the 
una of Fenda, who still embraced the Fagui idolatry, and during the early part of his reign, 
the cause of cbristiauilj was greatly injared ; Wulfcra, however, in the end, beeama a con- 
vert to Christianity himself. 

Dbbbtshibb, forms part of the diocese of Lichfield and Coventrr, and oonaists of the

A PaioBT. — When the chief person in the monasteij bore the nime of prior, it wis strled 
ptio>7. These kind of religiooi hoases wers of two eotia, — either thej wen nieb whost 
prior waa independent, or the; were such as depended npon some great abbey, from whieh 
diey neuTed their prior, and to which they were often obliged to paj a small pension, or 
aBBBsl acknowledgment Whenever the eonieat to which anj prior belonged wis bejond 
Am leas, then it wu stjled an alien priorj. These list iraDBmilted their teienaeB to their 
fanggB nperior, for which reaaan their estates were gecerallj selied it ourrj on the wars 
between England and Frinoc. 

A PaacBtTOBT. — Whensoever tbe Knights Templirs or Hospitillcrs, hid in; considerable 
mnors or fanns, they creeled eborchea for the service of Qod, md built 1 covenlent hoase 
far habitation, to which thej sent ont their (rMeroilj ander the eommand of a preoeplor. 

MoxKB AID HoiisTtBiis. — When the society of religions persons consisted of men, 
it was called a monuleiy. There is reison to bslierr that tbat« were monks md monisle- 
rin io Britain before the end of the 4th cenCiuy. In the coarse of the Tih eentniy miny 
moDBstcriea were founded in all paria ot England. These monasteries were desijnied, in 
naic places for the sead of the bishops snd their clergy; in others for the residence of ths 
aecnlupriesu, who preiohcdand idministered sacrotnent over the neighboniiiig coanlry; 
and in sU places diey were aeminiiies of leuiiiiig for the edncitian of yoalh. When Ihs 
society of irligioQS persons consisted of women, it was ttyted a nimneiy. 

A CsLL. — When a monastery or nunueiy was eabjecl to another it was called a cell. Tbe 
prat English Abbeys had many such cells in distant plaoea. Chanlriti, were chills 
oncted and endowed for the singing of masses for the souls of the deceased. Chsntry 
rests are stQl paid to the Crown, by tbe purchasers of these lands. SotpUaU, were small 
eoavniii, wcnpied by a few monks, and foondi^d for the entertainment of ill who went any 
pilgrimise on religions pretence. OtiiUt were societies of lay-brethren, who lived together 
liika monks, but were of no professed order.

and charges for first thiili and fees of admission genenllj exceed the amonnt of heir 
receipt* for tbe first two or thrss years after their entering office. 

EccLBsluiicu. C01I1I1SBIOMIB9. Oreat changes are graduillj taJcing place under the 
powers of this commission, appointed under an act passed 6lh and 7th William TV., in the 
general improicmtot and equalization of the diocesep, in dividing extensire parishes and 
angmenting small livings, and the adoption of auch other measures as tnaj condues to the 
efficiency of the established Dburch. Several new parishes have already been (brmed in the 
eoont; of Derby. Tbe Archbishop of Canterbury, the Archbishop of York, the Bishop of 
London, the Biahopof Lincoln, the Bisbop of Glonoester, the Lord Bigb Chancellor, the 
Lord President of the Oonnci), the Lord High Treasurer, and tbe Chancellor of the 
Exchequer, with others, form a body politic and corporate, by the name of the " Ecdesi- 
aatical Commissioners otEngUnd," for the purposes of the said asL 

DEBBr AsBOBXTTif. (see page 80) Lsnd has been pnrcbaaed, exceeding in extent one 
half of the_Arboretum, for its enlsrgemenl. Tbe prospect of increasing the atililj of the 
Arboretum as a place of public amusement, must affurd satisfaction to every reflecting mind, 
and no doubt tbe Eeal and aetivity shown bj the Committee will be duly appreciated by 
their fellow townsmen. 

Pabibh Riqistebs. The earliest of the parish registers date from the establishment of 
Oie Church of England ; injunctions lu that effect having been issued by Cromwell, Henry's 
vicegerent in ecclesiastical jurisiticiion, in 1.138. The canons of the church now in force, 
date their aulborily from the beginning of the leign of James I., A.D. IBOS. One of these 
prescribes minutely the manner enliiea are to be made in tbe parish registers, and coaUins 
a, retroipeclive claoBe appointing that the ancient legisten as far as they eould be procured, 
shoold be copied in a parchment book. This new regulation appears to have been carried 
into full effect, so that the only parish register books now extant, am nan ally transciipti com- 
mencing with Queen Eliisbeth's reign. Tbe parish register act of 1612 obviated someortbe 
preriouB BCDurces of error, and insured the farther neefalnesa of the regialer* from tiiat 
period. Bnl a saliitactoty system of rpgislntion was not established until the year 1837, 
when the act of registering Births, Deaths, and Burials, csme into operation in England and 
Wales. The registration of Biitbs is conaiderably more complete than the old parochial 
registers of Bapdsms, and tbt register of Deaths is believed to be very eompkle.

Qnai AairB'9 Botuitt.— Fibit Fmoit* amd Tbkihi.— From the earliest period eTerj 
Uahop and cleigrmui bu been raqoijed M paj tbe BmoUDl of Lib flrat jear'a incnmbeDcj- 
inla a food, and erery lacceadiiig r^" ODS-lealb. Thise firet ImiU and tenths were >□- 
Diullj collected, at th«ir fall Talne, ud applied to the uee of the pope, as earlj as the time

Uiingi in Englaad, which is sliU prtierrsd ia the ramembraucer'B office, and desl^ated 
" Valor of Pope Nicholas IV." At the time of the reformation, Henr; VIII. passed a law, 
with the aanctiait of Parliament, declaring that the fint froila and tenths ahonld be appro- 
priated to the use of the state ; and be caused an aocnnle and foil Taluation to be made of 
die eccleaiaMical lirings in England and Wales, which were accordinglj paid inlo the pnblio 
eicheqaei, till the reign of Queen Aonr, with the eiception of a abort period in the reign of 
Philip end Huy, Qoeen Anne, it is said, deploring the wretched condition in which many 
of the cIcrgT were placed, owing to the insaffieiencj of their liiings, came to tbe determina- 
tion that the fliat fraita and tenihi should be paid into a fund called " Quern Amt'i Bmnlf," 
and thai the udoddI ehonid be i^roprialed to the liiings of the poor clergj. No I^eab 
nlaation has been made since 1533, and registered in what ia called tbfl King's book, till 
dial made b; order of the ooromission, in ISSfi, ou which the pajments are now regulated. 
That the pajmeol might not operate oppreesivsly, the Urat year's income was to be paid by 
four annnal instaLmenls, and all livings of small Talue were entirely exempt, and hence called 
"discharged liiings." During the time of poper7, a large portion of the tithes bad been 
tlienaled from the parishea, Ibr tbe endowment of religious houses, or for chantreya to say 
masses for tbe dead, &0., and at Ihe refonnation, these eadowmeuta being seized by Henry 
VIII. left the greater part of the parochial church liTiugs lety poor. The goiemorE of 
Qneoa Anne's bounty, sometimaa aided by bcDefactioiia, and at others by Parliamentary 
grants, for the endowment of churches, hare been able greatly to augment many of tbe poor- 
tat lisinga, and now the mBonnies at the eommand of the Ecclesiastical Commisaicners, by

HISTORY OF THE TOWN 

BOROUGH OF DERBY. 



Dbut i* ■ boroagh tni muket town, the capital of the conntf to which it gitat nune, in 
tbe bandred of HorieatoQ and Lilehuich, sitnaled ia a fertile plain, >iuToiinded with 
beantihil tctaerj, obieBr on the west bank of the mer Derw«Dt, 32° 00' north latitude, and 
1° 37* wen longitDde, from Greenwich; 136 milea N.W. bom London, 13 milee 8.E. from 
Aibboorn, 3i mile* 8. from Bakewell, 34 mlle« S. by W. bum CheslerSeld, 10} miles N.E. 
from Bniton on Trent, 19 milea W. bf S. from Nottingham, and 29 miles N.W. from 
LeiceMer. It is an aneieni town and toimsrlj had a castle. The streets of the old part 
are ctooked and narrow, bat the new streets are well built and aanf of the modem honaea 
an spaeioaB and bandsoma. The MarkeUon brook. Tanning throogh the town, issues into 
the Derwent at the east eitremitf ; it is crossed b; seven stone bridges, erected b; a general 
nbacription. with one of wood, and an elegant bridge of three elliptical arches over the 
Derwenl; which with the silk mills, the wears, and broad expanse of the river, forma a 
handsome entrance to the town bom Nottingham. The town is lighted with gaa, and the 
streets are icgnlarlj paved, and conaiderable improveroenta and additions have, since 1831 
been roade to the bnildinga of this baaj and flomishing borough ; which is pleoiifall; 
supplied with water bom the Dsrwenl bj means of pipes and machinery. The vale of the 
Berwent on the soath presents an extensive level district, and the walks in the vicini^ of 
du town are Tery pleasant. The borough contains, b; the eensas of IiMl, 1,660 acres of 
land, 5,386 inhabited houses, 118 houses uninhabited, and 113 building; 19,800 male, and 
Itfia* female, being a total population of 33,711 ; in 1831 the population was 19,648, and 
Id 1831 it was 33,607. The borough contains five parishes, of which three extend beyond 
llB limits, and is the chief place of election fdr the southern division of the coun^. The 
town of Derby is situated on the western bank of the Derwent, about 10 miles from Its 
amSuenee with the Trent. The soil in the neighbourhood is a rich productive red marl, 
and the pasture land in the immediate vicinity is let from £4 to £7 per acre. Tbougfa 
■iloate in a valley and watered by a considerable river, often causing very serious floods, yet 
tbe air from the neighbouring hills la considered very pure, and many of the inhabitanU 
tire (o a great age. 

The origin of the town ia not known ; by the Baxona it waa called Northworthlg. but 
when the Danes took poasession of it they gave it the name of Darwentby, or more com- 
aooly Deoraby, of whieb Derby is a sormptiau. Antiquarians hate been at considerable 
le of this ohonge ; soms suppose that the name of Derby was 
' the banks of the Derwent, bat the mora general 
is derived from two Saxon woida, Deor (Fera). and By (habitalio). This 
en n i wl iire ia nnderad probable by two oireumstanees, one is that the arms of the town aie 
a Buck couchant in a paA ; and tlie other that one of the lanes adjoining the town ia still 
•afled Lodge lane. It has been supposed that it existed as a town when the Bomans ware 
in poasession of this part of Britain. This coqjecture is founded upon its amall distance 
tnn Ltlde-Ohealer, where thie people undoubtedly had a Station. 

The firM direct mention made of Derby in history, is early in the tenth century, though 
inbuJtlT it waa » [dace of considerable importance before that period. In the year 918 
BttieMeda pnneess of the Uereians, upon its surrender look possession of tlie town with all 



^3 UISTORY OF DERBY. 

iU appuitenaiicei : apon this occksisn fbar or her knights were aliin. HoweTci it loon bU 
*gun into the huidB ot (be Danea. In the jeta 912 king Edmund ioT^ed Hereia, tai 
delivered five lowne from tbe joke of the D»nea, of which Derbj wm one. Bot no deu 
idea can be Tormed of the town at these two periods. HoweTer in DooniBdaj book we meet 
with a prellj fall deseriplion of it, both in the reign of Edward the Confeseor, and at the 
Norman conqnesL " In the time of the CoDfessor, Derby was a rojal borongh, it contained 
two hundred and fortj three burgesaeB. Neai to it lay twelve plongh-gatea of taxed land, 
which eight teuna could plough. Thia land waa divided amongst forlj-one bargesBes, wha 
likewise had twelve plongh.gatei. Of the tax, of the loll and forfiturea, and of all customs 
two parts belonged to llie king, and the third to the call. In the same borough there waa 
in the kinga demesne one chnreh and aeven clerka, who held two plongh-gatea of bee land 
in Cheater. The king had likewise another chorcb, in which six olerka held nine oi-Ianda 
free in Comom and Ditlon. There were foarteen com mills then in the town. At the 
time of the Korman survey, there were an hundred burgeasea, and forty who were minora. 
There were an hundred and three dwellings waste or empty, which paid tax, the number of 
mills was reduced to ten. There belonged to the town sixteen acres of meadow land, and 
onderwood three quarentens in length, each contaiiung forty perches, and two in breadth. 
In the time of the Confeaaor the borongh paid upon the whole Iwen^-foar poonda ; and at 
the conquest with a mill and the village of Ladecetee (Ledchurch) it paid thirty pounds. 
In Derby the abbot of Burton had one mill and one manse of land, with sac and aoc, and 
two manses of laud of which tbe king bad the soc, and thirteen acres ot meadow land- 
Geofil^y Aaeliu poasessed one church. Balph, the son of Hubert had a church vrith ■ 
plough gale. Norman, of Lincol, and Edric had also each of them a chorcb. Henry de 
Ferrers was posaessed of three old decayed honiea with hod and sac. Osmar, the prieat, 
had one ox-land, with soe and aao. Godwin the priest bad likewise one oi-land. At 
the feast of St. Martin, the burgesses paid to the king twelve thraves of com, of 
which the abbot of Barton had forty sheaves. The king waa poasessed of eight 
decayed honaea, with sac and soc, in the borough. The two pennies belonging to the king, 
and the third to the earl, which arose &om the wapentake of Appletree, were in the hands 
of the sheriff, by the testimony of the two counties. In respect to Storey, the predecessor 
of Waller de Aincoorl, it was said, that vrithoot the license of any one, be might build a 
chnreh for himself, and give (he lithe to whom he pleased." On the SDnth.ea8t comer of 
the town, formerly stood a castle, but which, for more than two centuries has disappeared, 
but the site is called Cow-castle hiU. A street leading to Sl Peter's chnreh, in ancient 
deeds, bears the name of Castle~gate, and several enclosures now commonly ealled Castle 
fields, are evidences thai there was a castle in this situation. 

The Dnke of Normandy, (Hciuy I.) gTan(ed (o Ralph, earl ot Chester, the town of 
Derby, by a charter, which was signed at the Devizes. It has been coigectored that the 
fee farm rent of the town belonged to the Duchy of Lancaster, from (be time ot Hemy in. 
to the reign of Henry VII. Henry VIII., in the 33rd year of his reign, granted them to the 
Dean and Chapter of Burton. At present the Corporation pay £10 as a fee farm rent to 
(he Earl of Essex. 

Derby was incorporated by Heniy I., since which its charter has been altered and 
renewed at several different periods. It obtained various piitilegea in the reigns of Henry 
I. and n., Richard I., John, James I., and Charles L In the time of King John, the 
bui^sses were returned into (he king's exchequer as owing lii^-ail marks, for (he 
confirmation of their liberlieB. In the sixth ot the same reign, they were likewise returned 
debtors, sixty marks, and two palfreys, for holding (he town of Derby at the nsual fee fam, 
and £lO increase for all aervicea, and having such a charier as (he burgesses of Nottingham 
have ; and in the twelfth year of the same reign, the burgesses were ebaiged £40 for the 
fee farm ot the town. In the succeeding reign, the king granted to the burgesses ot Derby 
and their heirs, that no Jew should live in the town. In the fourth year of Edward III., 
(he burgesses were summoned to answer by what warrant they claimed to have toll, and 
were required to shew, why none should dye cloth within ten leagaea ot Derby, eiaept ia 
the said borough, saving the liberties of Nottingham. They were also to deelan what right

to these requisidons. the bnrgeBses, for the pririlege of loU, produced the charter of Edward 
in., dated the 3rd of June, in the 1st year otbis reign. lu consequence of this, the king, 
on their paying a fine of forty marks, restored them their liberties, which be bad questioned 
and seiied, being satisBed that they and their ancestorsbad from lime immemorial, eiyoyed 
Ihem, and held the said borough, paying yearly ■ i^uil rent of £46. ISa. 

A charter of James I., dated at Westminster, the 7lh ot March, in the ninth year 'of his 
reign, rMiles and confirms various privileges which had been granted in former reigns. 
The particular h'benies were, Ibat the bailiffs, recorder, and town clerk, or any three ot them 
bIuI) have a power to keep a court of record upon Tuesday ip every second week, — shall be 
jaitiees of peace for the year, and the year ensuing their election to Ibe office of bailiff, —

mil throQghoDt the duchy of Laoeaster as elsewhere, only that they should but receive halt 
toll of the duchy, Sec, In 163S, mention is first made of a Mayor; Ibe corporation 
mnleeedent to that period was styled " The BailiiTa and Burgesses of the town ot Derby." 
Id 1080, the ebarter was sorrendered to Charles II. and a new one granted, by which the 
govenuuent of the borough was vested in a mayor, nine aldermen, toorleen brethren, and 
fonrteen capital burgesses; who, together, constitute Ihe common conncil ; and these 
appoint ■ recorder, town-clerk, (who is also coroner,) chamberlain, tour seij cants- at-msce, 
<one of whom is keeper of Ibe gaol.) six constables, and other inferior officers, elected 
annually the first Monday after St Luke's. The mayoris chosen ^m among the aldermen, 
by the aldermen and brethren, these last being appointed ftom the capital burgesses. The 
mayor, the late mayor, (who is always deputy-msyor with equal powers,) and the four senior 
aldennen, are josticea of Ihe peace. The mayor and aldermen must reside within the

ot the boiTingh is inherited by all Ihe sons of a freeman, bom vriibio the borough, or 
acquired by serving an apprenticeship to a resident ttaeman, or by gift ot the corporation. 
This charter continued in fbtce till the passing of the Reform bill. By letters patent of 
Ihe King, granted to the burgesses before the year 1733, they were empowered to bold two 
fairs every year at Derby; one on the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth days of 
September, and the other On the feast of Sl Paid and the day preceding and fallowing ; for 
the sale of all manner of cattle, and of all wares and merchandise commonly bought and 
tfAi at taiia. In the year 1734, the mayor, aldermen, bielhren, uid capital burgesses 
appoimed a meeting, to be held for the disposal of the latter-make cheese, on the twelfth, 
thirteenth and tborteenth of March, to which all persons dealing in the said commodity 
mj^( resort, loll free. In Ihe year 1T38, the above days were dtersd to the tweaty-Stst 
day ot March and the two tUlawing days. The election of members of parliament is vested 
in the freemen and sworn boigesses, and the mayor is the returning officer. The 
Pariiamentary Reform act passed in June, 1893, and ihe Corporation Rebmi act on the 9th 
ot September, 1639. Tbs chief pro^eions of the Coiporatian Befonn act are the following:

The Old Towh Qul, erected by sabscriptioQ on the site of Ihs ancient Oulldball, 
abont the year 1729, though in itself a good building, was, from its isolated sitaaliDn 
in the Marketplace, ■ great obstmetioD to bnsiness. It was takeo down in 1636, and a 
aew one, neaiiy in a line wiih the south side of the Harkei-place, was erected in 1B38, at 
a cost of upwards of £7,000. It presents a noble appearance, in the Greoian style of 
arehilectore, and being built on arches, is connected with a new market erected by the 
eorporalioii. Considerable improrements, at a cost oTncariy £700, had just been completed, 
when the interior of this hall was, on tbe 31st of October, completely destroyed by fire ; 
leaving the outside and centre wails stuuling, <9parently but little injured, though the 
damage was eaUmatsd at fann £10,000 to £13,000. The interior arrangements are now 
eonaidered reiy complete. The hall or cmrt is 50 feet long, 39 ftiel wide, and 28 feet high, 
fitted up with wainscoting. A commodious gallery has becD erected at Ihe east end of the 
eonrt, and the whole is lighted with foor skylights. The spaces on each side of the lower, 
between Ihs two wings, are deooraled with bai relirfi, one having refiirenoe lo judicial, the 
other to municipal prooeedings. The ekienisl dimensions of Ihe building are 88 feet wide,

HoxiTic iKHTinrTioM*. — The uiGient religious fonnditians of Derby, wliieh arose in 
Calholie limes, were neither nnmeroiis nor splendid. In the flnt centnriea of ChristiuiitT, 
nuDf of it! peiseented vatarisB, in order to amid ■ cniel desth, " and the beuer to gire 
themselves ap to fasting, prajer, sod conlempUtiou, retired b; themselveB into desert places," 
in alhisian to which thef were called hermits, " After the persecutions of the Christians 
were OTcr, and the chonth eiyojed peace, Iheae hennits bj degrees returned lo towns and 
citie«, and associating together, thef lived in hoasea called mooasteries, and confined 
tLemaelTea to certain roles agreed upon among ihemselTes." Bnt it wu not till the 
beginning of the seTenth century that Christianity obtained a firm footing in England. 
Honaebinn was first conuDetteeil in Asia, and atlerwarda spread all over Europe, and ila 
reiga in England was as briiliani aa in any other part of the world, till Henry VIII., ^o 
was, perhaps, a necessary scourge for the sins and bigotry of the limes in which he lired, 
■wept sway nearly all ila institutions, and threw their immense wealth into a more corrupt 
dtaanel than even that which it had pretioualj occopied ; for, instead of its reverting to the 
original parochial uses, or preserving it for the spiritual and bodily support of the poor, in 
aceordaoce with the original intention of the donors, he sold or granted most of it to private 
individnala, for the gratification of his own concupiHcence, and for the salisfacdon of those 
who connived at his lascivious errors. That the monks had become insolent and corrupt, 
and that a religions reformation was necessary all must admit; but this perversion of 
property bom ita parochial or charitable nses all must condemn. The religioua houses which 
existed in Derby were St. Helen, Derley Abbey, Priory of Benedictine nuns. Priory of Black 
Frian, Haison de Diea, and a cell of Clanisc moikks. St.StUn or St. Marti the most ancient 
religions house in Derby, was established by Robert de Ferraries, the second Earl of Derby. 
in the reign of king Stephen and Henry II. He placed an abbot and canona in it, and by 
varioiu endowments provided for their accommodation and support It is said tbat it was 
of DO long continnance, tor In the ancceeding reign, the dean of Derby gave to the master 
and eanoDS at St. Helens all his possession at Derley, for the erection of a church, and 
ptnper habitation for ihemseWea, but it does not appear certain that the house at Derby 
wu entirely deserted at this time, for in the Lincoln taxation, made in the SOth year of 
Edward L, the master of the house of St. Helen, at Derby, is mentioned as distinct ttom 
the ahbot of Deriey. 

DiBLir AsBiT. — As it haa been observed, the deaa of Derby gave to the master and 
canona of St Helen, his posseaaiona at Derley, tor the erection of a chorcb and a habitation 
for tlumietves. At the same time, he endowed this religious house with his patrimonial 
CMate at Derby, and the patronage of the chnrcb of St. Peter, with all its appurtenancea. 
This grant was sRerwarts renewed and confirmed by the charters of the burgesses of Derby, 
and of king Henry II., bat it conelitQled bat a small port ot the wealth of this religioua 
honae, for it afterwards received many valuable endowments tioui several other persons ; in 
poitieolar the chorches of St Michael, and St. Wsrbargh, and the school in Derby, and the 
(hnrehes of Cricb, Utloieter, Feutridge, Ashovcr, WingBeld, Bolsover, and Scarcliffe, 
logctfaer wilb the emolnmenta and privilegea of which they were respectiTely possessed. It 
•■a alao endowed with many tracts of land, of great extent, in varions parts of the coim^. 
Several entire manors were granted to it; ot this number were Rippley, Pentridge, Ulkerthorpe, 
Crieb, Lea, Delbick, Ibol, Tanslcy, Winslonlon, Oggcdeton, (Hoguaslon,) Snccbelhom, 
AUwoik, and SeweUedale. Lands in other places were likewise given far the support of 
this eatabliabment ; in particular, nineteen oigangs in Chilwell and five in Aneleg, 
(Anneeley) ; a moiety ot Blackwell ; a moiety of Eildolvescot ; a moiety of Nenlon, with 
ri^l oigangs in Bnlinton, snd four in Herdnvic ; one manse in Nottingham, and JOO acres 
in Bnrlef. It waa endowed with the mill at Horsley, two mills upon Odderbrnr, near

Derbyshire, which were given to the abbey, bnt more especially those situated in the town 
of Derby. He was empowered to hold a chapter of the eecular elergy, and in coqjanctioB 
with them to jadge of those things which appertain to the olHce of a dean, without the 
iDtert;TeDce of any person whaterer, eirept the bishop. The abbot and canons of Derley 
were also allowed as much wood as they could diaw from Chaddesden with one cart The 
total Talae of these endowments at the dissolution, waa £iiSa Us. Hi., or the elear Talii« 
£359 13s. lid. It was surrendered on the SHnd day of October, in the year lft39, bj the 
abbot and thirteen monks. The site of the abbey was granted in the 32nil year of Henry 
Vin. to Sir Williun West. In the year IMO, the tombs and whole church were sold for 
£20. the cluyster for £10, and the chapter Louse for 20a. At the same time £JS Is. lOd. 
were receired for six bells, and the whole plate weighed 133 ounces. A part of the property 
lielonging lo Derley abbey, was granted by Queen Mary to the bailiffs and borgesses of 
Derby, particularly the advawsou of the churches of St Peter and St Michael, in Derby, the 
fichool. and severs! messuages and parcels of land, tn the town and its neighbourhood. 

Pbioht or BESEniCTiMK NcMS.— In the reign of Henry II., an abbot of Deriey founded 
a small nunnery at Derby. The Bishcf> of CoTentry committed it to his csre, and granted 
him a license of consecrating the virgins who were received into it This Priory, according 
fn Speed's m^> of Derby published in the year IflGfl, stood on the north-west aide of th« 
Kun's green. Henry III., to obtain the piayers of the prior and convent for the hdu] of his 
father King John, gave five pounds, to be paid yearly by the bailiAa out of the fee fkriD of 
the town of Nottingham. Hem? IV., by charter dated the 10th of October, ia the I3lh 
year of his reign, granted to this religious house one messuage, and twelve acres of land in 
Bistallegh and Ashop (Alsop-iu-the-dale). He likewise endowed it with twenty seven acrea 
of land, with their appurtenances, in Peak forest, and with the common pasture in Fairfield, 
In the same forest This right was very eilensive. It reached, in the direction of north 
and Booth, from Smalldale lo Alport, near Youlgrave; an extent of at least ten milea. 
Besides vailouB other endowments, there was the site of the building with garden and 
cnrtelage, aud 240 acres of land. It also possessed land in Langley and Trasley, and 
■everal messnages and parcels of land in Aston-upon-Trent 

Black Fbiabs-A priory of preaching or Dominican friars, which was dedicated lo the 
blessed virgin. In the reign of Edward I., waa granted to them a meadow containing three 
roods and a half of land in Derby; and in the 12th year of Edward U. a patent waa 
obtained for pnrrbosing ten seres of land, with a view of enlarging this prioiy. There also 
belsnged it in the parish of St Werburgh nine cottager, eight acres of land, one meadow, 
and one croft The revenue of this religious house at the dtssolntion, was estimated at 
£IB Ob. 2d., or £31 IHs. 8d., per annum. It was granted lo John Hinde, in the S.^tb year 
of Henry VIII. The site of this house belongs to the family of Cromplou ; an ancestor of 
the family purchased it about 120 years ago. and erected a mansion of which the foundationa 
were laid with stone collected from the priory, and in the garden, it is said, was a place of 
worahtp and burial ground. 

Maiso.'c de Dieu, or the house of God, was founded as early as the time of Henry 11. for 
leperous persons. It was under the government of a master. It is said there wai also an 
hospital of royal foundalion,consisling of a master (whose place was in the gift of the crown) 
and several leperons brethren. It was dedicaled to ,S(. Leonard, but jl isdoubtfril whether it

action repnied a saint and martyr ; he waa fiisl buried at Littlesbnll in Shropshire, but waa 
afterwards removed to Derby, and interred in the ebnreh which now bears bia name. He 
was believed to work miracles, and the northern people, before the teformation, made 
frequent pilgrimages lo his tomb. This church is now rebulliting on the same site, of 
which the first stone wae laid the eih of Hay, 1844. It will be much larger than the old 
ehoreh, which had aoconunodation tor 000 persone. and waa conuneneed taking down in the

and once had a richly moulded and earved roof of oak timber over the nave, finished in

they were aeenred by the insertion of imsscd beams beneath, and beautified by flat plaisler

imporunce of Sunday schools is now oniversidly acknowledged. Mr. Rnikea, e respeclabla 
prrnler, of Gloacesler. is generally considered as the founder of Sunday schools, which 
Blackner. otNotdngfaam, says were first introduced about the year 1778, by John Moore, a 
tnme-work knitter, of Leicester, and Wm. Hidlam, a native of Kirton, in Nottinghamshire, 
bat dmi a schoolmaster, at Moneyaah, in the Peak of Derbyshire, both of whom uugbl 
gra^ on the Sabbsib, at least tno years before Mr. Raikes commenced his labours for the 
promotian of these nsefbl institutions, of which, though not the original inventor, he was the 
carikst and moat active patron. Since which, Ikvaht ScsaoLa, conducted on the ingeniona

experience a gradual deTelopemenl of their bodily and mental powers, and ore kept during 
ibe day from that danger and neglect to which so many of the young children of the poor 
arc exposed, whilst their parents are engaged in their respective avocations, have a claim aa 
well as all other Christian charily schools, to be ranked amongst religious institutions. 

CHABIW SCHOOIS. 

Besides the numerous Sunday schools, ample provision is made by the benevalent 
inbabiMnts of Derby, for the education of those poor children who con attend during six 
dui of the week. Daring Ibe last quoiier of a century many charily day aa well as Sabbath 
athool rooms bare been erected, at which 1,716 children, including410 atthelnfantschoola 
an receiving instniction aa Oay tcholan. For these charitable and Inlellecmal uses, many 
thousand ptninda have been employed. Many now filling useful situations In society, bava 
received their education at these schools, and have great cause to be thankful. Too moch 
cannot be aaid in their recommendation \ nor should we forget the praise due to those 
iodividoala who devote their time and talents in instructing the children of their poorer 
nrighbooia. Those parents who cannot afibrd to pay for the education of their children, 
would be blameable indeed if they did not embrace the opportunities thus afforded, and 
where their children will be instructed in their duty towards God and their ueigbbour. The 
ftrilowing descriptive list vrill, we hope, give every aecesssry particular of the charily schools, 
and shew the weekly payments made at them, for wbicb the remaining expenses are 
proTidfl] by annual subscriptions and donations.

rents and profits of the said tithes, repair the said honses as often as need be. They were 
repaired a.d. 18U, at an expense of more than £'JM, by Sir Robert Wilmol, of Chaddesden. 
Bj an aicorrf, bearing date iiSih March, 1730, onder the baods and seals of two of the 
commissioners of charitable uses, appointed under the great seal, dated 16th February, 1727, 
it appeared that some irregularities in the appointments to these alms houses bad taken 
place, bnl which were afterwards rectiDed. It also appeared that Robert Wilmot of 
Osmaslon paid £13 yeariy to the Derliy alms honses. yet was not allowed to inspect them, 
but was ordered by this award that he should be allowed to inspect the payments, that ha 
might be satisfied the money be paid was not misapplied. Each of the ten alms people 
leceiTes 6d. a week ft«m Sir Robert Wilmot of Osmaston, making £13, the annual sum 
mentioned in the above award of I72fl. The commisaionere of 1627, applied to the agenca 
of Sir Robert Wilmot of Osmaston, bat say — " We have not been able to ascertain the 
eiiBtenee of any docoment ahewinR in respect of what particular lands this payment i> 
made." The exact proportion of men and women specified by the founder baa not been 
preserved, for at this investigation ihey consisted of fbur men and six women. There is a 
garden behind the almshouses, containing about one rood, divided amongst the alma 
people. 

LiBGi's HoBFiTU.. — Edmard Lorye, at Derby, gent., by his will, dated 3rd June, 1T09, 
devised all his landi and tenements to John Curzon, son and heir-apparent of Sir Nathaniri 
Cnnon, of Eedleslon, Bart,, and two others, and their beiis, in default of issue of him the 
said Edward Large, as for and conreming his estate in and about a place called tlie Nnn'a 
green, in Derby, being of about the yearly value of £00, in trust, that they and the smriiors, 
&c.. shonld, oDt of the rents and profits thereof, upon a erott near Nun's green, erect and 
bnitd Hve small alms honaes for the habitation of five poor parsons' or viean' widows, fbr 
ever ; die same to be elected, chosen, and put in, (after the costs and charges in bnUding the 
same ihoold be discharged out of the nents and profits of the said estates,) by the choica 
and election of hii said trustees ; and that the rents and pro&ts of his said eslales should 
be equally divided amongst such five widows for their sapport and Uvelibood for ever. 

By hidenture, bearing data 27th October, ITIO, made bemeen Beryamin Parker and 
Thomaain his wife, (laie Tbomasin Large, widow of the above-named Edward I^arge,) ot 
the one part; and the said John Coraon, Robert Wilmot and Robert Holden, of the other 
part; reciting that the said Edward Large had, after his marriage, settled by indenture 
amongst other things on bis said wife, a close in or near the Nnn's green, and near M a field 
there called the White Cross Field, containing by estimation seven acres; and stating that 
the will of the said Edward Large could not be so effectually performed without the close, 
&c., ; the said Beiijamin Paiker and Thomaain, bis wife, granted and surrendered to John 
Cnnon, Robert Wilmot and Robert Holden, all their estate and interest in the said close. 

An exchange of part of the lands took place In 1833, in consequence of a site being 
required for a new gaol for the county of Derby, for which part of this land near Nnn'a 
green was well ad^ted, and it was considered advantageous to the charity to appropriate six 
acres to this purpose, the county agreeing to take the same after the rate of £100 per acre, 
making in the whole £3,400. But as the trustees had no power to sell this land, it was 
agreed that it should be eichanged, under the 1st. and 2nd. Oeo. IV., tor an estate of 
sulBcient valns to be provided for that purpose ; and an estate ac Bandiacre, belonging to 
Hr. John Thraves, was selected, and for which he fixed the priee of £2,600 ; in consequence, 
two other parcels of the charity land were disposed of, one containing 2,Ma square yards M 
HiiB Prime, after the rato of 2s. Od. per yard ; and the other, containing 162 Square yards, 
to Mr. Edward Ward, after the rau of la. fid. per yard : which, together with the six acres 
intended for the use of the Oaol, were conveyed by the deed of 1623 to Hr. Thraves in 
exchange fot his estate. It was agreed that the estate so exchanged should be let to Mr,

Tolntd al £500 per acre, amounting in tbe whole lo ,£2,331 8s. Od. were comejed to WiUiam 
Tnnier, of Derby, Mercer, and his tniitce. William Shaw, and llieii heirs, for several closes 
in Sandiacre, containing together 31a. 3b. 2St., purchaeed by Mr. Turner far £2fliQ, for the 
pnrpoee of this eicbange ; b; which transaclion a balance of £1M He, Id. remained in 
IkTimr ot the chari^ ; and of which the expenses amounted to £283 Oa. Sd. which il was 
■greed should be paid in eqaal moielies ; one maiety thereof being reduced from Ihe sboTe 
balance! left an ultimate bolacce of £79 lla. Id. in favour of the charity, which was added 
lo Ihe former balance in the bank of Messrs. Smitli, and Co., the whole amoauting to £293 
18s. 3d. The land so received waa let to John Abbot, who had previously occupied il as 
yearly tenant at £06 per annum, on the valuation of a surveyor, Il has also been considered 
erpedienl to let parla ot Ihe land on bnilding leaaes, and with this view two roads leading 
over the property, intended to be nsed as streets, were made in 1B19. When these building 
lot! were set out, a small addition was made lo the garden ot ihe hospital. 

Ifary Bnom, by her will bearing dale the 0th of April 1721, devised as follows, " I leive 
to my brother Nathaniel Doubting, all my land free from debt for his lite, and after his 
deatfi to that hospital on Nun's green, where I now live in Derby, which was left by Mr. 
Edward Large, tor parson's widows, and after my brothers death, I leave my land to the oars 
of Ibe same trustees which Mr. Large left for that hospital." It appears that in 1800 the 
land-tax charged on thelands of the whole of this hospital was redeemed, and that for this 
poipoMe a house and. orchard at Alvaston, part of the properly devised by Maty Broom which 
was ooder lease to JohnSherwin, was sold to him for £160, leaving a bdanct iu favour of the 
eharityof £36 12s. 8{d., carried lo Ihe general account ot the charity by Mr. Richard Hurph;, 
who a( thai time managed the properly tor Mr. Bobert Holden, until 1817, when new nnslees 
*ere ^ipointed. The real of Ihe land at Alvaston given by Mary Broom, containing 
Ik. In. 31p. is let to a yearly tenant for £18. 

The whole rental of all the properly now belonging to the charity, except the site of the 
hospital and garden belonging lo it, amounts to £303. 16a. 6d., of which the lands near 
Knn's green, ore aubject lo a quit rent payable lo the coiporadon of Derby, of 19s. 4d. per 

The AIDS bouaes called Large'a hospital, which ia situate in Ihe Friargale. consist otflva 
dwellinga under one root, with a waah house at one end thereof, a amall court in bonl, and 
a garden behind, divided amongst the inmates. 

The etEccl of a codicQ of the will ot BolKrt Holden, the surviving original Cmslee, recited 
in the trust deed of IBIT. has been lo separate Ihe patronage of the hospital from Ihe legal 
eslale in the Irusl land; but it may be doubled whether he waa anihorized to make this 
•eparocion, ai Mr, I>arge, the founder of [he charity, althoogh he made no proviaion for Iha 
^ipoiDlmeni of new trustees, directed that the widows should be elected by bis " trustees, or 
by two of tbera,' intending, aa it appears to na, thai such election should be in the diacrelian 
of two of the trustees of tlie charily at the least. Until Michaelmas I81T, half yeariy renlala 
■ad accounts were made oat by Mr. Murphy, and in January 1618, a balance ot £62 13s. 9d. 
waa paid over by him to Mr. Robert Ilolden, the acting trustee. (1H3T,) of which aum £30 19s. 
was applied in defraying the eipenaes of the Irusl deed. From 1818 lo 1831 inclusive, Ihe 
imis were received by Mr. Holden, bailiff, who, daring that period made Ihe payments lo the 
widows in ibe hoapilal (being five in number, eicepl in 1810, when there appeara lo have 
beet) tour only) ot £19 each half yearly, and by whoae accounts il appears he superintended 
d>e making the new roads over Ihe properly, soughing, fencing, kt., by which il oppcara 
thai Mr. Holden. at Hichaehnas, 1831, bad expended £331 Is. 7d., more than he h«d

to (snn of the same, bjr the advine of the vicar and cbucbwardens of 8L Peter's ; to the 
intent that the eud Halph, and his successors, should sa; moss dailj in a ohHpd which he 
bnilt, for Ihe-eoula of the sud Robert and AUce hie wife ; and he directed that on Friday

and certain puvments, therein specified, made lo the vicar, the priests, and others, attending

Various awards, decrees, elchsnges, and indentures, hare In regard of this property 
taken place ; and which still, in 1 636, appears to have been in an nnsatiBtactoi; elate. The

Tbe trustees conceive that tbeir power eitends onlj to the management of the property, 
not to the applicsiion of the proeeeds, and that their doty ceases on paying over the clear 
rents to the church wardens. The present vicar (IS96) having declined to take any part in 
the admioiBtratJon, after a small payment (£4 fls. Bd,) for a weekly distributiDn of bread, 
and all necesaary repairs of the chorch, the residue is psJd to the ovetseeiB of the poor.

yean old, was aeot to work at (he siik milL For (he flrat year he dragged abonl with him a 
pair of hi^ patteoe, being loo ahort lo reach the engine. He anited al Ihe cloie of this 
«e»iy bandage in hie fonneeslh year, when he wu bonnd ^prentice again, far Beren years 
mere, to hia ande, a Blacking weaver of Noninghain. After reroointng with him tot wjqm 
time, an Bnhqipy quarrel ensued, and he ran away ; but in lees than a week hia finances 
wen eihaosted, and he resolTed at last lo throw liimBelf upon the protection of hia father, 
■ad the alTair ended in bia return to bis uncle's, and the raliBcalion of a tnaty of mutaal 
fbrgiTenesB. He aeemB Dow to have firat began to shew that ingenuity and (aale for 
inlelkcnul occapation, wliich we find afterwaniB ao atrongly marking his character. Having 
l>otTO«e<l a dulcimer, he set about the fabriealiou of au instnimeni tot himself; but as be 
had neither timber to work upon, toole to work with, nor money to pnrcbaae either, one of the 
family relics in Ibe ehspe of a large trunk wu made lo supply Ihe former, while hie pooket 
knife had to aane alt the rariety of edge tools, and a fork wilh one prong was made lo act 
in the capacity of sprig-awl and giniblet. In thia way he at lul completed the dulcimer; 
rtieh, after learning to play, be aold to one of hia wealthier oompanione for Ifle., bought a 
oou wilh the money, and oonstrucled a belter instrument for himsell In IT10, he Bnt 
began lo be f<Mid of books, and those he bought being mostly in a tattered condition, he fait 
anXLoiiB la realore them to a more seemly ^pearance ; and ascotdingly, bought from a 
bocAbinder eereral of bia cas^off tools and B wam-down presa, for which be paid 2s. This 
prored fn 43 yean hia best binding press. Seeing no proepeet of anything bnt drudgery 
and porer^ in the trade to which he had been bron^l up, his great ambition now was to b* 
satded in bosiness ea a bookseller, and be st last delemtined to set up in that charaoler In 
the (own of Southwell. Hera he aeeordingly opened a ebop, with (u he eipreeses it) abont 
90s. wonh of trash for all his stock, and in one day became the most eminent bookssllei in 
lbs placa. This bnmUe attempt wu, however, Ibe beginning of his prosperity. Next year 
ba wu oSned abont 3 cwL of oid books, on his note of hand for 2Tt. Upon this, be 
determined lo break up his estaUishment, and transfer himself to Birmingham, There h« 
sneceeded so well that by the end of the first year be had sated abont £20. An unfortunate 
ciiEamslaBee, however, occurred, which gave him great imeasiness. The orerseera, fearful 
that he might become chargeable lo Ibe parish, had him examined with regard lo bis 
settlement ; and with the voice of authority, ordered him to procure a certificate, or Ibey 
would remove him. Terrified, ha wrote to his father, who returned ftar answer, " That All 
Saints, in Derby, never gtanled certificates." Yet in this place be was destined to acquire 
M>ma yean after, an ample fortune, and to take his place amongst the most honoured of its 
eilisena. Hr. Hntton bad been in the habit of lending tarses occasionally lo the magazinee, 
almost bum the commencement of hia residence at Birmingham ; bnt it wu in the year 
1780 that he imdertoak for the fint lime to write a book. This wu his celebrated histOTy 
of Hi Hningfa.ui , for which he wu immediately elected a fellow of the antiquarian eooie^ of 
Edinburgh. Of his other works, Ihe principal are his " History of the battle of Bosworth," 
his " History of Derby," and his " Deecriplion of the Boman Wall." In order lo prepare 
htmaelf for the compoeition of tbie celebrated remnant of anliqui^, he performed a journey 
of about OOO mOea, entirely on foot, at the age of 78. Soon after the publication of bis 
hialofy of Derby, tits riola at Birmingham took place, when his house wu burnt to the 
grawnd, and property to the amoimt of £8,000 destroyed. In 1781, Hr. Button oarefuDy 
inspected the remains of Ibe city of Verulam, and began a history of that place, which was 
■ndattaken with great ardour and spirit of research ; but hie remarks were deitroyiHl at the 
riati, and he eonld never be prevailed upon to reaome Ihe subject. In 1606 he visited 
London, m which occasion he remarks " I wu never more than twice in London on my own

A moal melanehoty accident happened at Derby on Tuesday, Sth NoTember, 1B44. It 
bad been KSolvrd to provide a calde market, and otherwise improve tbe town, to effect which 
Aemin fleam, or goit, in the Horlcdgs, was to be covered over. This work was In progress, 
by Hi. James Sims, the contractor, six or aeven yards of lbs arch being finished. The arch 
WIS a span of 38fL, and built lo riss 6tl Bin., forming the segment of ■ circle fi2tt. diameter; 
it was 20in. thkk, and turned in fooT rings of Sin. each. The arch and backing was laid 
and gmoied with Barrow lime. At about a quarter past B o'clock in the morning, the 
worimien struck some of the wedges away, snd the whole of the centreings were lowered 
and eased from the masonry. The middle supports were then taken away, leaving the 
eenucing* to rest on the two opposite aides. At 9 o'clock the workmen were employed in

The following i» a short uinals or sketch of the most remu 
different pi>riads of time taken place in the town of Derbjr : — 

918.— About this time, the Danes took posseuion of Derhj, which was soon after 
recoTsrsd bj the heroic Etbelfleda, daughter of Alfred the Great, and princess of Ihe Mercians. 
The town appears at this time to bsTc been strongl; fortified. About twen^-fonr ;ean after, 
it tell a second time into Ihe hands of the Danes, but was delivered from their power bj King 



1190. — King John conferred on the burgesses of Derb; and Nottingbani, an eidusiie 
privilege of djeing woollen cloth . 

1303.— The burgeBsea of Derb; were returned debtors to Ihe King's Exchequer six^-sii 
marks, Cor the confiruiation of their liberties ; a sum nearl; equal to £1,080 of our present

granted to them, that no Jew or Jewess should reside in the town. 

1332. — Robert de Holand joined in an insurrection raised by Thomas Earl of Lausaaler, 
1 against Edward U. 1 bat hearing Ibe earl was taken prisoner atBurrow Bridge, be Bunendered 
I himself at Derby, and waa carried prisoner to Dover. 

1313. — A proclamation was made to canj into efiitcl a prcTioos resolntion of pariiamenl. 
expressly for the protection of the wool trade ol Derby, which ordains diat no person ahall

established in Derbyshire. About this period was the conquest otCalais, where a mart for 
the wool of Flanders bad long existed ; and foreign wool was introduced into this counllTi 
whieh diminished the price of the home-grown commodiQ. Edward peroeiied the adTsulages 
of tiiis intereonrse, and natwilhsCanding this protecting edict, he incorporated a company of 
wool mercbanlB, and ordained that Ihe price fixed by them at Calais should be the regulating 
Talue. This company maintained its station, keeping up a continual correspondence with 
■gents in Derby and NatiinghaDi, until the loss of Calais under Queen Mary, when that 
channel of prosperity to this town gradually declined. 

1^34.— Two gallows were erected for hanging prisoners, and the next year the disstJutiau

the prince, with his army, amonnting to about 0,000 man, enlarsd Derby. Pnvionaly to 
their appearance in the town, ateps had bsen taken to provide for the safely of the lubabilants, 
and to oppose their progress towards Londim. Nearly 600 men had been taiaed by 
anbscription of the gentlemen of the town and eonnvy, besides 1M> levied and maintained 
by die Dnke of Deronshire. On Taeidsy, the thiid of the monlh, diese forces ware reviewed 
by his Grace and the Hirqiiis of Hailington. The inhabitants wars now in high ^irita, 
which were much increased by the news, that the army of (he Dnke of Comberiaud would 
eome to an engagement with the rebels the next day. Bnt they wen soon thiown into Ih* 
greatest terror and confusion, by hearing of the ^iproaeh of the van-gaard of the rebela 
towards Ashboom. The disorder was not diminished by the immediate orders which weiw 
given for the soldiers to march oat of the Wwn. Diatiaction qipeared in every coonlenanee, 
and ssveial of the principal gendemen and tradesmen, having conveyed away or secreted 
their most valnablc effects, now departed Ihenuelvas, with their wives and children, with all 
possible haste. Abont ten o'clock at night, the dmma beat to aims, and the soldiera by torch 
light marched for Nottingham, with the Duke of Deronshire at their hesd. Abont eleven 
o'clock the day following, two of the van-gnard of the enemy entered the town, sjmI 
inimedistdy seized a fine horse belonging to Hr. Stamford. When tbey reached the Marital 
place, they continued between two and three boors on horseback; and to prentol any tnithor 
impression being made on their minds, the bells were rang, and several bonfires were kindled. 
About three o'clock in the afternoon, Lord Balmarino with the lifo gnanU, and many of tbeir 
chiefs arrived on horseback, and being the flower ot tbeir army, made a fint appearance. 
Soon after them, the main body marched hito the town, in tolerable order, six or eight 
a-breast, with abont eight slandards, having while flags and a nd cross. However, tdd men 
and boys foimed a part of their army, and their music was chiefly the bag-pipe. In obadiraiee 
to their commands, their prince was pnblicly proclaimed by the cammon crier, before his

was held. The only resdnlion made was that of levying money from the town. Having 
obtained a list of the gentlemen wbe had snlnerftHHl for the defence of hii mqaety King 
Scoigc, they demanded that the money dinnld be •dvaaced to them ; and it waa found 
neeeesaiy to comply with dieir requisition. The total sum raised in various ways, during 
dieiT Uay, was between two and three thousand ponnda. In the evening of the eecond day, 
■Bather ooancil wu held, at which their debales grew veiy warm, and were overheard by M>. 
AMeman Eaton, who mnstuitly attended the Bake of Perth. The final remit of Iheil 
delibaations was, to return lo the north. The causes ot this resolution was su|^osed Co bcs 
the very small enconragemeot they bad met with on the road, and the great strengA and

eirenmstance ie mentioned La Derby, as having bad Bome inflaenoe on their determination. 
It is said that when the standard of their prince was taken into his lodgings, it waa broken 
at the entrance into the door. This incident wu considered as ominous of their late, and 
die minds of some of Ifaeir chiefs were a good deal affected by it Early on Friday m

Their hnasaiB rode into Ihe neighbouring vUl^^es, and plimdered the inhabitants ot horses, 
and of every other kind of valuable property of which they had ttte least want Two ot the 
lebels went to Clifton, near Ariiboum, and demanded a horse, which being rettased, they shot 
ttie person to whom it belonged. In the like violent maimer they look away the tilt of the

93 HISTORY OF DERBT. 

lu 1803, lh« vor with Fntooe iguD commuicing, Hr. Williua Hajne, Ibe original 
patenlee, was in Paris, and was detainsd by Baonapuia ; his et^ed wu to nuDggle Britiah 
net into Fnooe, wbiab he ooullnned to do, with Taned susoaaa, till 1609, when bia aginM 
bsTiQg betrared biro, dd leu tbaa £03,000 worth waa aeiied in one week, which, togathar 
with the fine, amouuUd In iG40,000. He bad before ssitained omuidanble lossea, bj uimrea 
in thia contraband trade, and snceeeded almost bj a minele, in making hia eseqie ; aai 
though he had been considered of noboaiided wealth, in IHll he was faaud iuaolTenl, and 
died io ■ childish insanit)'. 

In 1614, after the peaee of Paris, the speotilalioiu In Nottin(^Mli and Deibr were rain- 
OQsl; eitensire. Lace machines rose in rains from £26 to £130, under the impression thai 
British lace wonld have flie same demand aa in 1603. Hr. Morris, irtio had been M I^nu 
and Niunea, ihonght differenllj ; and a little bebre hs died, he sent a memorial, written with 
hie own hand, to Lord Sidmooth, pointing out the danger from French competition, and 
predicting the Inlal entDelion ot the eilk-laoe aanufSBtare in Epgland- The admcmition 
was llirown bj as iU-timsd and ussless, bj that miikislsr. However (he British were nut ia 
the gnat marliels ot Spain, Sicil;, and Sontb America, bj the Frenoh ain^e press net, 
stiffened and dressed in such a toperior msunsr as wboUf to supersede then, whish eanaad 
the failure of most of (he old houses. Large quantities of French net wire InqMsled into 
England, at a dut; of 10 per cent, which was grsallf eraded. Vsriona memoriali were 
preasnted to Mr. Robinaon, and at length the dutf was altered to Sa. per square fard, m more 
than 7n per cent. This condnned till Mr. Hoskiason, bj hia eelebrsted meastire, altered the 
whcde scale of dutiea, which took place in 1626 ; atnce whiah the point net maehinea hare 
graduallj disappeared. The workmen, principally inTeulors of maefainerr, finding that in 
France the bobbin-nst mMhines were increasing at the rate ot 20 par month, came to the 
resolution to meroorialiie the Board of Trade ; wbeu Mr. Hstriea promised a careful 
inTealigation under the Wellington adminiatntion, which waa soon afterwards dissolTsd. 
After which BIr. 0. Henaon, of NoUlnghaiD, was pcnnitted to wail on the. new administration, 
but Lord Aucldaad doubted (he propriety of intarfetenoe ; and Mr. P. Thompson, the Frinident 
of the Board of Trade, treated the matter aa bivoloua and nnworthj of hia attention. Their 
MiU^ti** Boon afterwards, with a praiaewortbj attention to the distresa ot the oounliy, gaT* 
poeitire orders, that no person should appear at soort, dressed in iBj but British mMtufaclorea. 
Silk lace bad begun to be made from the bobbin-net machine*, which had increased, •inee 
1618, bom little more dian 200 to more than 4,000, at an axpena* of neari; a million and k 
half of capital. A species of while silk laea had been made from the warp frame, another 
distinct mode of making machine lace. Hr, /oaepJk Crowder, of Nottingham, who had made 
considerable improiemeuls in lace maohineiy, directed hia attentioD to the stifiening of it, 
in which the Freuch tar eicelled ; and from great persereranee, was enabled to pndnee an 
article fr«ai the bobbin-aet-maclkiae, eqnal in appearance la the French lullee, but deeidedlj 
eaperiar in elamina- It waa conceived, that if her Majesrr wonld order a dress ot this net, 
and thus introduce it to the notice of the nobiU^ and genHj, their pabiotiam migU indnoe 
them to use a British initead of a foreign article. A petiiiau to her Mqeet; was atgned by 
the prineipal mulufactnrers, and presented by Sir Uertiert Taylor. Her Hqes^, with the 
givatesi eondsscension and attention, not ool; gare the order, but directed Meesra. Ti^n 
and Wesson, who had in the handsomest manner undertaken to complete it, to qi)d} to her

of am eommenie ; ftom whish ne an l«d to inppoa«, that the tabonrera of EogUnd and the 
Btiliih isUndg ara indaitrioiu, bapp;, improriiig, and contented ; yet on examination the 
Tnj Teiene provea to be the oMe. The; often lack employment, are badl; paid, an 
dtmonliied, paoperiied, and miaerable. A large poitiaa of die inhabilanti can hare no 
adequate conception of Ibeii condition. Daring the loiioiu piaicB which hare occurred of 
laie yean, committeea of inveatigation have repaaiedlj been appointed in all Ihe principal 
Danahctariiig towns, wilb the moat appalling remlte, aa to the miaeiy and deatitntion of 
the inhsbiiantB, and temporary relief afbnled; but pauperism, destilntion, and crime, are 
Bieiy year on (ha iucreaae. Where aw we to look to for a remedy? Adam Smith, in his 
" Wealth of Nations,'' says, " To Say Ihat what improiea the circumstances of the greater 
put is an inconienience lo the whole, is to say, that a society can be flourishing and happy, 
of which Ihe greater part an poor and miaerable. It is equi? that those who feed and 
clothe Ihe mIioIb, sboold baie such a ahan aa lo be themselTcs well fed, clothed, and 
lodged." But this is a anlject which not <]tfh the government, whose first care ahonld b* 
the welkbeing of man in general, bat also the nobility, gently, olergy, merchants, and 
manafaiitiifera. ought to be all interested in deriaing means by which the industry of Qm 
people may be secured and fairly remunerated ; the only nal source of wealth, and of the 
•ell-being and safely of the state. 

The Hu([itu:TUBK or PaBcsi.ua ob Chimx was commenced bare about Oie year 17M), 
by Mr. Dnesbiiry, who brought it to anch perfection as in aome leapects lo equal the beet 
fimign china. A rich and elegant dessert seirice, consistisg of one hundred and twenty 
pieces, was made tor the Prince of Wales, atierwarda George IV. ; and rich serrioea have 
been made for the Eari of Shrewsbury, the Duke of Devonshire, and other noblemen. In 
ISIO, a rich lertice, for the Fenian ambasaador, was executed in a style of anperlor 
qJendonr; the gmand was gold, chased and inscribed with Penian characters. Biscuit 
Bgnres and ornamental shins, fit the most exquisite beau^, are mannhctored here to a 
eaniidei>ble extent, and are in general estimation. 

The Sfab Wobxs here are objects of curiosity, taste, and acienee. Ifr. El^ah Mellor, 
in 1IM>, established the first jewellery mannlkcloiy ben. The Buor spar or, as it is termed, 
" Blue John," i> an elegant naloral prodactioii. The only mountain when it can be obtained 
in EoSleient abundance and quali^ for the puipoeea of mannfaetun, is situated westward 
of Caatleton, between Mam Tor and the eminences that eompoae the Long Cliff. Sonie of 
the ^eees of fluor are a foot in thickness, and have four or five difi^ienl veins; but such large 
^eces are very rare ; in general they ara only about three or tour inches in thickneas. The 
deep violet is the most common kind, bat In some a fine yellow tint pnvoils, and in others a 
pale nisc nioaz. The aciil procured bom Buor spar is more powertoUy coimsive than any 
other, and is used iu engiavlDg upon glass ; and the spar is worked into a variety of osefnl 
and orawnental articles, such as vases, cups, necklaces, eardrops, Sit. There are several 
fnannfsftnnn of theae intaresting otgecta of ooriosity in the town; and Ur. Joseph Uallhaa 
erected a very ingenions machine fin sawing and polishing marble, which is put in motion 
bj ■ steam engine. The beaatlAil span and marbles peonliar to the connty ara hen formed 
iolo elegant cbimnej pieces, ornamental tables, and figores of Ihe moet chssle and beaulifDl 
daaerqHioD. Oypntnt, Colour, PlaileT, and Cemmt, are also manufactured to a conaidenbls

The tosm of Derby has had the hononr of giving th« title of eari to aereral great and 
noble families. Some writers useit that it was enjoyed by the Pevetells, Eails of NoitinKhsm. 
It was oertainly eonfeirsd on Bobert de Fertarils, in Oxt (bird year of EJug SlepliLU, Ui 
reward fbr his eminent services at the famons battle of Nonhallerlon, in Torkshire, when a 
gloiiona victory waa obtained over David, King of the Snola. Bobert, bis son and successor, 
was styled ComesjaniordeFerrBriis. He fiimided the religiona house of St Helen, in Derby, 
and iraa a large benefactor to the prioiy at Totbnry. He was sneceeded by Williani de Ferra- 
riia, in the twelltb year of Henry H. Dngdale mralionB Robert de Perrariis, wbo lived in the 
nineteoith year of this reign. But it doss not wrfsiiiJjr appsar that he was Earl of Derby. 
The titls was next enjoyed by William de Ferrariis, who attended King Richard into tha 
Holy Land, and was ^ain at the siege of Acre. WUiam, hit son, «■« created Eari of Derby 
by a apecisl obarKr, in Ibe Aral year of King John, who girded on his sirord with his own 
hand. He died in the SLst of King Heiuy m., and was sneceeded by his nrphew Willitm, 
who survived bim <mly seven years. Bobnt, bis son, wbb the last of Ibe family who eqjoyed 
Ibia title. Whan be came to year* of mamrity, be joined irith the barons in a rebellion 
BgaiDBt Henry HI., and by bis revolt lott his title and a large part of bis estates, ma

Jottjih Ptrtivai, at Winobesier, by will proved in the Prerogative Conit of Canterbury, 
October, ITl.t, beqaeatbed £100 to the poor of the parish of Aston, to be laid out at interest 
by the minister, orereeers, and chnrehwsrdens. In lespeot of this legacy, there is a sum ot 
£07 9>. m^ old Soutb-eea annuities, part of a som of £1180 lOi. fld. stock, standing in the 
name of the Aceountimt QencnJ of the Court of Chancery, to the credit of the ranse of the 
Dean of Winchester against Holden. The dividends payable to the poor of this parish have 
not been paid for many yean ; the last Buppoaed to have been paid on the 10th Oetobar, 
ITOl. At the time of oar enquiry, Aogust, I82S, little waa known in the parish as to this 
charity, &<. Upon enquiiy at the Accountant OeneraTa office, it appean the arreorB of 
interest may be received, on the proper qiplicotion being made by the minister, cbnrch- 
wordens, and overseeere of Asloa, and Ibis we have recommended should be done. The 
arrears of intettit will amount to about £D0, and it seems advisable they should be invested 
in the fnnda, and the dividends distributed to the poor with the yeariy dividends of South 



Elizabeth Cooper, by will, 1738, whose chanty for the pariah of Spondon — (See Spondon) — 
left lands, kc., for the poor ol Aston, which consisted of one moiety of a field of about an 
acre, csUed the Oreen Leas, and three small parcels of land in the Common Meadow. At 
the time of the enclosure, there was allotted in respect of these three parecls. So. I3p. in a 
field cslled Thornborougb Field, not enclosed, and lies open to the rest of the field, which is 
the property of Mrs. Cock, to whom also an tmdivided moie^ of the Green Leas belongs. 
The yearly rent of £2 lOi. is paid by the tenant in respect of so mncb of the land as belongs 
this charily, which is distributed by the tmstee amongst the poor, he retaining 0*. Ibr his 
eipences. We recommended the appointment of new trustees (or diis and (he Spondou 

Bottrt Cotpper, by will 1720, gave to 10 of the poorest people of the town of Aston the anjn 
of As. to be paid yearly for ever, oat of a parcel ol ground called (he Green Leas. This 
Man has not been paid tor 20 or 30 yean past. The lost payment was by Hn. Cowliahsw. 
Thsre are several parcels of land of that name, and we have not been able to discover which 
was the proper^ so described in the will. 

Jane Bhepperd left, in 1734, a rent charge of 12s. a-year, to pay Ibr two children at Aston 
school. It is upwards of 40 years since this was paid. The estate supposed to be chained 
therewith is situate at ChellastoD, and was, at the time the last payment was mode, in the 
possession of Mrs. Bayle and Hn. Hardinge ; it now belongs to Mr. T. Brown Dummelow of 
Chellaston, bat there does not seem sufficient evidence to prove that this is the estate liable

UAIiE ABBEY, an Mbv-parochial townihlp, village, and cbapeli?, T miles E. bj N. from 
Derby, containi 1,760 acres of land, partly clay, sand, and mar); 94 houses, and 100 
Inbabitanls, of whom IB8 are males, and 202 are bmalea; ollha rateable ndue ot £l,flIT ISs. 
Population in 1801, 414; 1831, 407. The chapel is an ancient and eoiioui stmciure. 
A (huDework aciesn dirides the ohspel into two parts, baring a gallery extending over three 
parts of Ihs body. It has a smaU tunet and one bell, and ■oeiently (otmed part of a public 
house. It is in the jDiisdictlon of the nunor and pecnliar court of Dale Abbey, of which 
Eari Stanhope is lord, and holds a court teet annually, the principal owner, and appoijtla the 
mlnlBUr. Tlie Ber. John Oarton Howard, Tboiaas Patea, E«q., W. D. Holden, Esq., R T. 
Bateman, Esq., C. L. H. Masters, Esq., and Mr. Joseph Stevens, are aloo owners; and IS*. 
^b.20p. belongs to Risley school. The Tillage is situated in a valley, bating a lofty range of 
hills on the south, commanding extensive views. In 1849, a large room to the use of the 
Odd Fellows wsa erected. The houses are mostly of brick and thatched. The poor have 
the benefit of the school founded by Bar. Jfdin Seargill, at West HaiUm, am] of that at 
BiBley, by Mrs. Elizabeth Grey, 8 children being allowed to go tree. About CO children are 
taught in a suuday school, Here was an abien af PnrnotutraUntiatt ouoni, of which there 
remains the arch of the east window of the abbey, 16 feet wide and 40 feet from the 
ground to the keystone. It was repaired a few yean ago. A small portion of the cloialera 
remains, and forms part of the bouse and premises of William Wheatley. The history of 
Dale Jbbcf relates that Ralph Fits Germnnd, Lord of Oekbrook, discovered in his woods, 
while hunting, a hermitage, which it is said by the legend waa conatmeted by CohmUub, a 
baker, of Derby, who had a anperaatoral call tlrom the Virgin Mary, to spend the remainder 
of his life in soUtude and religious servicea at this place, then called Depedale. Being moved 
with compassion at the hermit's appearance, he gave him the site of the hennitsge, and d>e 
lilhe of bis null nt Buigh, (Borrowash), for his support. Serlo de Grendon, who married 
Balph Fitz Germnnd's daughter, gave Depedale to his godmother. He afterwards, with bar 
consent, iovited canons from Calke, and gave them Depedale. These canons having been 
removed for their miscondnet, some white canons of the PremDnstralension Order repaired 
thither, and to them the psik of Stanley was given, when the monastery obtaiued the name 
of "De Parco Stanley," by which it was at that period generally known. Theie is a 
legend, that (he Ung gave the canons as much land as ihey could encircle in a day, with a 
plough drawn by deer ; and this story is represented on the windows of Morley church, 
which are snppoaed to have'been removed from Dale Abbey. These canoos, nevertheless, 
not having sufflcient means tor their support, relomed to Topholni, whence Ihey came. 
William de Orsndoo, Lord of Oekbrook, supplied theb place with canons from Welbeek, bat 
they also soon deserted the new monastery, forwent of auffleient sustcuance. Geoffrey de 
Salicosa Mare, having procured an esublisbmeDt of 9 canons, bom Mewbouse in Lincoln- 
shire, they were admitted into Ibe Fremonstratention Order, and settled at the new monastery 
in Stanley park, and being more fortunate than their predecessois, met with liberal 
benefactors, who bestowed upon tbem lands of considerable value, and lbs advowsona of 
Heanor, Ilkeston, and Kirk Hallam. This last foandation took place about the year 1301. 
The abbey was surrendered to the crown, 1089, when their revenues ware ealimaled at 
£1U 4s. per annnm. Willis s^ that it was surrendered by J<^ui Stannton, the last abbo^ 
and 16 monki ; but it appears by tfar commissioners' aeronnts of that date, that Jobfi Beds,

office of one of tha principal sscretarics ot slate, and was, in lT£i, created Viscount 
Felersbsni and Earl ot Harrington. 

ElBoiUnt CaiUe is a luge Qothic mansion, pleasantly aitualed in a well-wooded pork of

beautified the groonds by the addition of plantations and shrubberies, in which neat lodges 
in the Chinese style have been erected for Ihe dameslics. Oa the E. is an arenoe of stately 
elms, about 1 mile in length, through which maybe seen the Gotham hills. At the soutbem 
entrance from the park lo the shrubberies, is the celebrated golden gales which originally 
belonged In Napoleon Bonaparte, and occupied a station near the royal palace at Paris. 
They wen purchased by hb Lordship, and were set np here in 1819. They are of wrought 
iron very ornamentally decorated with scroll work, which, with Ihe spear-headed points at 
the top, are richly gilt; on each side are corresponding iron gilt railings, each 48 teetlong, 
terminated by a large pillar of Derbyshire granite spar. On these pillars is Ihe Bgure ot 
Heicnles slaying the lion; he is in (wo attitudes ; parts of these are richly gill. The railings, 
sopports for the gale, are ubont 19 feet high, and of Birmingham manafactnre. 

In lOi.l, Elvattoa Ball, then the seat ot Lady Stanhope, was plondered by Sir John Cell's 
soldiers, who demalisbed a cosily monnment newly made tor Sir John Stanhope, and 
committed'great outrages in ihe family vault. Mra Hutchinson speaks of this as the act ot 
Sir John Cell himself, which oulrage seems lo hsTe led lo the siogular eient ot Sir John 
Gell marrying Ihe widow. Earl Stanhope eqjoyH the interior title of Bbtod Stanhope ot

BaT. Pellej' Fatker ia incumbenL The church is a neat slmcture, with unte, ebancel, and

and a marble tablet to the late rector, John Morewood, M.A., who died 1822, aged Si, sud 
Elizabeth, hi* wife, with some others. The tithes were commuted m ISiO, tor XiiO 10s. 8d. 
Th* rectoiy is a neat stuccoed mansion, near the chorch, and commands some eitensirs 
TiawB to tbe east. It was erected in 182D, near the aile of the old rectory. The Erewasb 
Mtnal passes the east side of the parish, and coals are brougtit from a colliery in the parish, 
by a tram railway, to a wbarton in banks. In 1892, a neat brick school room, 48 feet by 
21 feet, in the Golhio style, was erected ; there ate 48 children, who receive their instruction 
tee, and 9d. per week, viz : 34 from West Hallam, and 8 each from Stanley, Dale Abbey, and 
Utpperley. There are also olhets firom each of the parishes, who otil; receive instruotion. 
Tbe master has a salary of <£aO per ujniun. Here is also a church simday school, of about 
BO children. Here is a mineral spring, tbe water of which is similar to tlairogate or 
Kedleston. The Feast, first Sunday after St Luke, and in the village are 2 mate and 1 femala 

CaABiiiis. — WiUiam BicMing, by wUI gave lo his bod, Hicbard Hicklii^, a cottage iu 
H^perley, and directed that 20b. a year should be paid lo the poor of the parish of West 
Hallam, on St. Thomas's day. By a deed, 1073, Richard Hickling, iu consideration of £50 
enfeoffeed lo Francis Handley and bis heirs, a cottage at Mapperly, in the parish of Kirk 
Hallam, subject to a rent of 5s. 4d., to the lord of tbe lee, and a payiueut of 20s. to tlie 
pooiof West Hallam, npon tbe feast of St. Thomas the Apostle. The Handley family paid 
lbis20s. annually until 1T80, bat Mr. Handley refused to pay in 1787. It appears in 1T14 
that Francis Handley, fat the sum of £17 conveyed a dose lying in Mapperly for tJie use of 
fiisley school, to certain persons, except the sum of 209. yearly, to be paid to the poor of West 
Hallam. He also, fbr tbe consideration aforesaid, granted lo the said partiea a yearly rent 
charge of 20s. out of the long close lying at Mapperley, with a power of distress if the some 
should be unpaid. Various applications have been made lo Hr. Handley and the cbapeliy of 
Bisley for payment, without effect; but it appears to us that this annual sum ought (o be 
paid by them in future, out of Ibe rents of the field. 

Marsartt Hodgti, in 1719, gave to William Handley £20, in trust, to distribute tbe interest 
amongst the poor persons in West Hallam or any neighbouring town. It is in the hands of 
William HodgUnson, and 12s. interest is paid for it to the rector, and is distributed about 
Christmas, in sums of Is. amongst the poor. 

WilHam Holbraok. a labouring man of this parish, who died in IT04. by bis will directed 
that the produce of his property should be given to poor widows of the parish, at the 
discertion of Mr. William Barton. The clear produce of his proper^ amounted to £1 1, 
which has remained iu Mr. Barton's bands, for which he has paid Us. per annum, which 
has been given to 11 poor widows on St Thomas's day. Mr. Barton slates that he is ready 
to invest that stun on good secorily. 

Fraacei GMorn^l CSurily.— (See Bradley.)— The annual sum of £S 10a., received by the 
rector, is laid out in flannel, given to the poor men and women. The Rev. John Scargill built 
a achool, and endowed it with a sum of £!>iO. This sum was laid out in land at Eastwood, 
iaieeS. The tmsteea, in 1083, purchased a mesauage and lands, tor £300, at Qreasley, which 
*nm 1b supposed to have arisen troja tbe residuary bequest in Ibe donor's will. On ibe 
enclosure of Eastwood, 1797, H/l. 2r. 23p. of land was awarded lo the trustees. Various 
exchanges and partitiDns have taken place, by one of which, a close called tlie Moor Bridge 
was purchased lor £30 lOs., and surrendered to die IriiBlees at a coun Ibr the manor of 
Ilkeston. The property now consFsla "f a farm al Fnslwnoil, of 4«.i. Jin. :<r., IM for JEW, im

value, £3,069. Chaises Vicaa NqnWr, Esq., is the prineipal owner. Francis Brrulahav, 
Esq., John Woollej, Thomas Smitb, aad Grace Walker, are also owners. The feast is on 
the Snudsj after St Clements da;. Here are 93 stocking frames. Kilbnurne Bail, Iha 
beantiful and picluresqae seat and proper^ of Chades Vioas Hunter, Esq., is a very ancient 
manaioD. The garden, in the ancient atjie, is adorned with a splendid collection of jews, 
sappased to be about 300 jeats old. These trees are cut in a varietj of figures, which the 
owner is anxiouB the; should retain, and to the onrioua, present a sight perhaps not equaUed 
in the kin([dom. Near the village is an extensive collierf, 6 miles tram Derby, on the 
Altreton road, of which John Ray, Esq., otSeanor Hall, is the proprietor and leasee. About 
140 men are employed, aided by a sleam engine of 58 horses' power. The coal is of a 
auperior quality far house fires, as well as manufiicturing purposes, and is much in demand 
at Derby, as weU as the neighboDrhood. Tlie Weslcyan chapel was built in 1836, and 
enlarged in 1840, with a Sunday school, and in imi a day school was opened by (hem with 
60 pupils. The General Bapdslshave a good stone chapel, built 1832, with a Sunday school. 
The BoT. Jidn Felkin of asalles a pastor. A kHooI for girtt, under the management of 
Mrs Hnnler, has 61 pupils, who pay a small weekly sum. 

l^omai Htinttr of Swanwick, in 1733, granted a cottage nearWindmill Hill, in the parish of 
AlfreWn, and two parcels of ground called the Windmill Closes, abont 0*., upon trust, to the 
poor inhabitants of the following places, — to the poor of Al&eton, £1, lOs. ; Kilbume, <£l ; 
Morsley, Ds. 1 Horsley Woodlunue, Ss. ; Bipley, £It Weseington iOs.; and to the vicar of 
Al&eton lOs., for preaching a sermon on the day of the month upon which the said donor 
should h^pfn 10 be buried. The property consists of two small cottages and three olosss, 
with an allotment set out on the Altreton inelosnre, making in the whole 10^ 3f., let for 
£13, which appears to be under the valne. The poor of Alfreton now receive £3 1-'>b, i 
Kilbume, £2 lOt. ; Horsley, ISs. Bd. ; Horsley Wuodbouse, ISs. M. ; Ripley, £2 10s. 
Wessington, £1 !i». 10s. is reserved for the viosr, but wbo.we are iufarmed, baa for several 
jam (1836) neglected lo preach the sermon, and 3s. for the collecting of the rents, which 
has been mserved since the appointment of new tmstess in 1833, and is now in the hands 
of Ur Flint, which, it appears to us, if the aemon should not be preached onght lo be 
q^iropriated to the poor of the said places. 

A»n Ball ia supposed to have given the yearly sum of 10s. Hr Francis Ball pays lbs sum, 
as a charge on an estate belonging lo him in Horsley Woodbonse, which is distributed 
amongst the poor of that township at Christmas.

£3 6s. 8d., and £1 13a. Id., are diatribated in Horsley, Woodbouse, and Kilbnni. at 
Christmas. 
Ba. Franeb Oitbom^t Oharilg, (tee frndfiy.)— The sum of £5, 10s., received by the 

incnmbent, is laid out in cloth and flaimel, and distributed to the poor of the whole pariah. 
nonus Sluae, in 1783, gave to the poor in Honley £12, the interest to bay SO sixpenny 

loaves, to be dealt yeariy fbr ever on the 3d of Febniaiy. The yearly sum was paid op lo 

Candlemaa 1810, by Hr Samuel Roberts. It was suppraed some lands held by him in the 

parish of Crich were subject to this payment, but in 1819 (he property was aold, and nothing

from Uie Babbington and Cinder hill collieries of Messrs. North and ff akeSeld. Here is a 
taannfaclory of stone bottles and An bricks, and one for chimney pipes and garden pots, 
with one for common earthenware. Here are also several brick yards and lime kilns. The 
Nntbrook canal occupies I2i. 3a. 16f. of laud, passing on the western side the parish. 

Itketton Commoii, which contained 730a. 3a. Sr. of land, was enclosed in ITM, over which 
368 cottage houses are now eeattered, having small gardens atlaohed, giving a rural and 
pleasing appearance, on wfaieb IS hoaiery frames ar« employed, bat colliers are the principal 
occtipants. The Old Workhouse is occupied by 14 widows belonging the pariah, which is 
now in the Basford Poor-law Union. Lead ore is foimd on this common. 

Cnlmanluin, bamlet and scattered village, 1{ miles W. from Ilkeston, contains 213 bonses

ChahiTIEs.—JuAh Ftamstead of Little HsUam by will 1091, which recites that oa trustee 
for a gift made by Francis Willougbby, be gsve a residue at his disposal of 10s. yearly for 
ever, to be paid to the vicar of Qkeston at Easter, to be distributed amongst the poor of tbe 
said parish. Tbe Rev. R. D. Fluustead fonneriy paid this sum, and the proper^ being 
conveyed to Hr. Edwards, a solicitor of Derby, as ffostee of William Dodsley Flamstead, be 
paid the said snm, but that since Mr. W. D. Flamstead came in possession, no payment bad 
been made. And we (in 1830) have not received sufficient information to indenti^ tbe land. 

Tfiamiu Html iu 1 083, gave a close to the heirs of his body, and in default ot such isaoe 
lie gave the said close to the use of the poor widows of Ilkeston, and directed the rent thereof 
should be dealt amongst them upon tbe feast day of St Thomas. At Oie incloante in 1704 
a field called the nortb field meadow 3«. 3a. 1 r. was awardeil in lien of the Tinkers croft. 
and in Iibo of a piece of land in the mill field supposed to hnve been pven by the Kev, Mr.

William Ongg, In 1680, gaTe 20i. jearif to ^ht of the pootesi people of the Iowd of 
Ukeiton, and directed that his eieentrii shoold la; oat £20 to puehua land fbr the payment 
thereof. The c*nr close Ik. Ob. Ir. let tat £7 per annon), sod the bull bdk oloss 2a. la. Sit. 
let for £5 a jsar, are supposed to bare been panhsaed with this monej, bat no deed can be

eompanf pay for land taken fhnn Boe's eharitj, and Coortmau'i ebarifjr £1 Is. per annnm. 
A sum of £67 IDs. w*a reeeiTed Ibr coal gat under the bull balk close, b^ the Re*. Biehud 
Dodslej Flamslead in 1790, for which be paid interest at 3$ per cent until 1810, linee whieh 
no interest or dietrlbntian in bread has been made. (1820). About 1S13 aoolhet agreement 
wai made for working the coal, and from the mooef receired a oopjhold dose called the 
NtUier Chie at Ilkeston containing 1a. 3b. SOp. was snrrendered to the Bct. B. D. Flamslead 
and two others and their heire, npon the payment of £7 ISs. flue to the court, bat no nolioe 
was taken in tbe court rolls of the purchase being made fbr the poor. £80 doe for this coal 
is in the hands of Tliomas Potter at per cent interest. The nether court elose U let br 
£7 per aontnu, sud the som of £1 5s. is also received from a railwa; which passes the bull 
balk close to the coal pits. 

Saautl Bee, in ITTb, gave £100 upon trust, the interest to be distributed amongst the 
neeenitous poor of Bkeston. He also gave £20 to be planed out at Inlsnel, to be applied to 
the use of the minister of a dissenting congregstioD at IlkeBton, so long as that soeielj should 
eobsist there. The aboTe sums were inTested by the minister and churchwardens in a elose 
called the Knotty Ueadow, in Eastwood, 3a. Ob. 3Sp. upon trust, as to fire parts in six of the 
rent, to pa; tbe same to the neoesdtons poor of Ilkeston, and the remaining sixth part to the 
nee of a iWeslanl Boclel; of diesentere. The close is let for £4 139. 3d. per annum. A 
small part of tbe close was taken for the use of the Eerwasb canal, for which the company 
pajr 18s. a-year ; of which sums ISs. 4jd. is paid to one of the Presbjteiian congregatioiis 
for the use of the minister, and the remainder distributed to the poor. 

Jfr. Otmrtniaii, in ITOl, gave land prodndng 7s. per annum fbr the benefit of poor 
widows, and also land producing IDa. per annnm, for teaching 3 poor children, and the land 
was Tested in Dr. Flamslead. Searehes have been made for tbe will but It cannot be fbund. 
The land is supposed to consist of a 8eld containing 1a. Ir. IDp., throu^ which the 
Erewaah canal was col, and has divided SOr. from the residue of it. It is let for £2 per 
•onum. A sum of £14, produced bj the ssle of some trees which stood open the field, is 
in the bands of the Ber, Jerrsie Brown the vicar, who pays 14b. per annum iniereai. Tbe 
not and interest are paid to support a Sunday school. 

John FovljanA of Litde Hallam, in 1704, left 3 lays of land, and money owing to him 
■mounting to £28, and a bond of £6, which he designed should make the whole 40s. per 
annnm,'to the use of the poor. One of the leys eppeara to us to be the land valued 5b. 
mentioned in Hnnt^s charity ; the other two, described as lying in the Far Doles close, were 
in possession of a family of the name of England, who pud the annual sum of 6s. for it 
till the time of the inclosore, since wbicb nothing has been paid. Mr. Oanntley, a commis- 
sioner under die Indoenre, states that, at the time he set out the allotment to Mr En^and, 
he was not aware that his estate was charged with any dole, and Ibst therefore the estate was 
not exonerated fMm the payment by the allotment made to the trustees of the poor. We 
apprehend therefore that these two leys ought to be considered as still belonging to tbe poor. 
With respect to the pecuniary bequeits. it appears to have been agreed fay the pariahoners, 
at a vestry meeting. 29lh March, 1T41. that the principal sum of £32 left by Jobn Fouljamb, 
and the som of £10 left by Jobn Matthews, should remain In the hands of the paiiab, and 
that the interest should be distributed lo the poor; and that the oveneers and chnreh- 
wardens should give bond for ihemselvea and soccessors that the interest might be paid tor 
ever. It appean the annual sum of £3 29. was paid i>n or about Onnd Friday, imtil the 
year 17SI, dnce which no payment has been made.

QUABNDON, i parish tni conBiderabla mUtered vill&ge, beinguau'tj Ij miles Is Uogtb, 
in which It some veiy dcM modern houses, 8 miles N.N.W. ftom Derby, coDUins 060 acres 
of terlile land, a aandr p«al, 120 houses, and 537 inhabitaats, of irhoni 3TB nr.n males 
Had 379 females ; rateable value £2,313. The Deau of Liucola is lord of the manor, irhloh 
is s member of Litde Chester, and a amill owner ; the Duke of Dctonahire, Lord Scaisdole, 
and William Muudj, Esq., are principal ovners. Miss Silwell is aov, 1819, erecting a Teij 
handsome mansion, said lo cost about £3,000. The rhnrch is a amall stmetare, with ■ 
turret, tower, uiit 3 bells ; Uiing, a perpetual curaey of the Talue of £S2 ; Lord Soarsdale 
patron, Rer. William Heorj Barber incnmbent. The churoh was built in ITDO, and wai 
endowed with £3 per annimi by Mr Francia Badford. Lord Scaisdale gave the iaod and 
£100 lowaids the building. Tbe late Joseph Humphatone, Esq., of Derbj, gave £1,000 3 
per cent, consols for the sapport of a resident minister, on condition that the Chnrch 
Boildiag Society would erect a parsonage house, in consequence of which the society, in 
1844, erected a neat house, with anitable offices, near the church, at a cost of about £8S0. 
This was formerij in the parish of St Alkmimd, Derby. Here is a tree school tbr 20 poor 
children of Kedleston, Quamdon, Weatoa, and Ravensdala park, (see CharilUt.) Upwards 
of 20 yean ago, William Erans, Esq., of Allestree, established 2 schools here, of which 1 is 
for infants ; about TO attend the 3 schools, which are snpported by Mr Evans, except the 
weeUy pence. KedlaloH inn, on the Wiiksworth road, 1 mile west of, and in Quamdon 
parish, is a large respectable posting establishmeuL The open lands wore enclosed in IB08, 
and here are, in the village, 25 hoiiery frames. Near the Tillage is a ehalyitaU ipring, which 
was in great celebrity more than a centuiy ago, and is now oonsidered one of the most 
elSoacions in the county. 

CaiMittst.—Sir Jola Cttnon of Kedleston, in 172S, gave £90 per annom for instmadng 
SO poor children of Kedleston, QaamdoD, Weston, and Batensdale park— the master to have 
£10 per annum, and £i to buy books, &c. — aul he gave £10 per annum to the master to 
read prayers and to preach in Qaamdon chapel, and fbrtber stated that he woold have a rent 
charge of ^0 per annum, issning out of some lands in Qaamdon, settled fbr ever for the 
uses above named. It does not appear that a rent charge was ever setded upon the trusts 
in pursuance of the directions uf the testator, so that the estates hs devised to Nathaniel 
CuTzon, the father of the firet Lord Scarsdale, still remain subject to such charge. The 
premises appropriated to tbe use of the schoolmaster, consist of a good house and garden, 
with a croft and play-gronnd, ^together more than an acre of land. The house has been 
enlarged by the master, and is capable of containing about 30 boarders. The schoolmaster'a

poor of tSawlej, Long Eaton, and Bramcole. 17s. per umom to each place waa paid bom 
Filkington Close. Tbii oloae waa aiebangad by the poor-law oommiBaionera, in 1B12, for a 
piece of land ealled the Claja, S aoraa, which ia now let for £21 a year, which la eqnall; 
divided batween the above-named paiishea. 

Francit Saeker, in 1S76, gave to the town of Sawle; £200, to be lodged in tragi with the 
Company of Salters at Ixindon, until they find a conTenieiit pamhaae to lay out the aame ;

rather leaa than balf an acre, whish die firat occupant had for? yean rent free, but nowpaya

and six gowns of aoarae elolb are provided erery other year, and given lo poor persona. 
40b. is paid towards ths salaries of a aahoolmaatH and miiDesa of Ihe National aeb<H}). It 
ia deairable that in foture (be rents should be plaeed in a distinct aoconnt, so that Ihs whole 
may be regulariy applied aoeording lo the donor'a diieotions. 

Jatiph Toiele, in 1731, left Lncy Bott close charged with the payment of 30b. ayear fbr 
aver to the poor of Sawley. It fbrma a part of a home close attaohed lo a houae Ihs property

which was paid onl of an ealate of Mr. Farkinsoii'fl till about 15 years ago. In aonsequenoe 
of the miniater of Sawley Iben re^niring the dialiibiitiaii to be made at die ehuich, it waa 
withdrawn. Mr. Parkinaon on examining his title deeds, found no menlioQ of the gift, nor 
have we any evidence to ahew that his estate ia liable lo this charge.

often flooded by tbe waters of tbe Trent and Dove.

ITSe, High atieet was not paved, nor had it a aewe r of any kind, and (be centre of the street 
was so low that it formed Ihe general receptacle tor ibs refnaa water bom all tha bousea. 
At intervale, stepping-stonea were placed to enable persona to eross. In that year, an act of 
parliament waa obtained for paving, repairing, eleanaing, and lighting the town, and for 
removing and preventing nniiaucea, soon alter which, a sewer of about two ttet diameter 
was formed from lb« firidge to High stteel, bat not being properly oonstmcited, wss 
nmtinually stopping up fin want of a regular fall. In I8<3, however, it waa determined lo
