Eyam Woodlands, Derbyshire

Glover's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of the County of Derby, 1829

Transcription by Rosemary Lockie, © Copyright 2002

Materials collected by Stephen Glover in the early 19th century towards a History and Directory of Derbyshire were published in 1829 in 3 volumes. The Directory - “accurately taken during the years 1827, '8, and '9, by Stephen Glover” - was published first, when according to its introduction, the remaining material was “still in the press”. Its subsequent publication resulted in two volumes. Volume I contains a History of the county as a whole; and Volume II describes individual Towns and Villages.

This extract is from the Directory.

[2] At the end of the book it explains:-
“The names distinguished with F are for the most part Freeholders returned Into the County office, as being liable to serve on Juries. This forms only a portion of the Freeholders of the County, as it does not include the Clergy, Professions, and Others, who are exempt. Those distinguished by C are Copyholders.”
