White's Directory of Derbyshire & Sheffield 1857
Entries for the area of the Ancient Parish of Glossop.

GLOSSOP parish forms the north-east extremity of Derbyshire; the river Etherow separating it from Cheshire on the north and north-west, and has its rise in the Alpine ridges at the north-east extremity of the county, which is also the source of the river Mersey. The river Derwent has its rise at the north-east extremity also, where for some distance it is called the Wrongsley river, and separates this county and parish from Yorkshire, after which, entering the parish of Derwent, it takes that name; the water from the east side of Kinderscout flowing to it. The river Goyt, which rises from Axe Edge, near Buxton, bounds the south-west side of the parish; and near Marple bridge the Etherow has its confluence with the Goyt, and flows to Stockport. The parish is 16 miles in length, and averages 5 miles in breadth, and is intersected by the Sheffield and Manchester Railway. It is one of the most romantic parishes in the county, particularly the wild mountainous district on its eastern side, of which a considerable portion is moorland. Its western side is a highly flourishing district, and by far the most important seat of the cotton manufacture in the county.
This extensive parish comprises the townships or hamlets of Glossop, Chinley, Bugsworth and Brownside, Chisworth, Chunall, Dinting, Hadfield, Hayfield, Ludworth, Mellor, Padfield, Simmondley and Whitfield; besides many other populous hamlets and villages. Hayfield, Mellor, and New Mills are chapelries, and a district church has been erected at Little Moor, in Whitfield hamlet. The parish is returned as containing 31876a. 1r. 30p. of land, mostly pasture, except the east side, which is chiefly moorland; it abounds in clay, stone, slate, coal, and valuable waterfalls, which have for ages coursed their way through the deep dells, their solitude being but occasionally broken by the mountain shepherd; till the ingenious and enterprising capitalists perceived that -wealth flowed from the mountain rills, which speedily caused the solitude to be peopled with a teeming population, engaged in the busy scenes of commercial enterprise. In 1851, there were 5,559 houses, and 28,625 inhabitants, of whom 14,312 were males, and 14,313 females; rateable value, £60,942 19s. 3d. Pilkington dates the rise of manufactures here to the year 1784, in which year the first cotton mill was erected. The large cotton factories and other extensive establishments will be noticed in the localities in which they are respectively situated. Before the introduction of the cotton manufacture, that of woollen had made considerable progress; and we find there were no less than seven factories, and four fulling mills, only one very small woollen establishment remains, but the cotton factories are increasing and enlarging on all sides.
The manor of Glossop, which extends over Glossop and its seven hamlets of Glossop Dale, viz.: - Charlesworth, Chunall, Dinting, Padfield, Simmondley and Whitfield, and Ludworth and Chisworth, belonged, as parcel of Lagendale or Longdendale, to the crown, at Domesday survey. King Henry I granted it, as a part of a still larger district of his domain of the Peak, to William Peverel, on the attainder of whose son it reverted to the crown. King Henry II gave the manor of Glossop, with the church and its other appurtenances, in the year 1157, to the abbey of Basingwerk. King Henry VIII gave this manor, in 1537, to George, Earl of Shrewsbury. It now belongs to Lord Edward George Fitzalan Howard, youngest son of the late Duke of Norfolk, to whom it had descended from one of the co heiresses of Gilbert, Earl of Shrewsbury, who died 1610. This estate had been settled on a younger branch of the Howard family, and belonged to the late Duke before his accession to the title. Here are also many small freeholders.
Glossop is a small market town and township, 9 miles N. from Chapel-en-le-Frith, 14 miles E. from Manchester, 24 miles N.W. by N. from Sheffield, by turnpike road and 30 miles by rails, and 50 miles N.N.W. from Derby. It consists of Glossop, Howard Town, and Mill Town; situated in a beautifully romantic dale, surrounded by lofty hills. The old town is irregularly built, but many improvements have taken place within the last few years, by forming new roads and streets, &c. Mill Town connects itself with Howard Town on the Sheffield road leading to Glossop, or Old Town, in contradiction to New Town, or Howard Town, which forms the great focus of improvements, and is ¾ mile W. from Glossop. The township contains 4,820 acres of land, and in 1851 had 942 houses, and 5,167 inhabitants, of whom 2,713 were males and 2,754 females; rateable value, £10,057 3s. 6d. The different hamlets or townships in the manor of Glossop, keep their poor conjointly and roads separately, and contains 11,303 acres of lend, of the rateable value of £32,443 0s. 3d. Lord Edward George Fitzalan Howard is lord of the manor and owner. Here are upwards of 8,000 acres of moor land. The land is mostly pasture, and the farms generally small, let on small leases at an average rental of about 30s. per acre. The land let for building purposes, is on leases for a period of 99 years. A considerable portion of the land in Glossop Dale is let as accommodation land to the tradesmen; his Lordship being in every respect desirous to accommodate, improve, and encourage his tenantry, and to make Glossop a principal seat of the cotton manufacture. The direct line of railway communication with Liverpool, and the probability of that communication speedily extending between the eastern and the western seas, in conjunction with its local advantages; and the low rental of land, render every prospect of its being able to compete with the great emporium of the cotton trade, or with any other of the towns in Lancashire or Cheshire. The Church, dedicated to All Saints, is a vicarage, valued in the King's book at £12 18s. 9d., now £303. It is situate at Glossop (Old), and has been augmented with £400 parliamentary grant; the Earl of Ellesmere, patron, and impropriator; and the Rev. Alexander Thos. C. Manson, D.C.L., incumbent. The Church, a neat structure, with nave, chancel, side aisles, tower, and spire with 8 bells, was rebuilt, except the tower, and spire in 1831, and enlarged by the addition of two galleries, at the cost of £2,000, by which 800 sittings were obtained, of which 206 are free and unappropriated. The incorporated society for the enlargement of churches and chapels, having granted £200 towards the expense, and the remainder was raised by subscription. The late Duke, as impropriator, repaired the chancel, in which is a handsome monument for George Hadfield, Esq., of Mottram Old Hall, Cheshire, who died September 28th, 1831, aged 59. In 1855, his Grace the late Duke of Norfolk rebuilt the tower and spire to which the inhabitants added two new bells. The tower now contains a fine peal of eight bells. The Vicarage, a handsome Elizabethan mansion, a little south of the church, was erected by the present incumbent, in 1850. In the village, is an ancient cross. Glossop Hall, a handsome stone mansion, recently erected on the site of the Old Hall, is pleasantly situated a little N.E. of Old Glossop. It is the seat and property of Lord Edward George Fitzalan Howard, who succeeded to this estate on the death of his father the late Duke of Norfolk, in 1856.
Howard Town or New Glossop, ¾ mile W. from Old Glossop, forms the centre of the largest portion of the inhabitants of the township, and a focus for most of the other townships. It is sometimes called Glossop Dale, from its being situated in a fine valley, surrounded by bold mountains and romantic scenery, and presents one of the busiest scenes in the cotton trade that can well be conceived. Great improvements, by erecting new factories and the enlargement of old ones, have within the last 20 years been made. A Market was established under the powers of an act of parliament passed in the 7th year of the reign of Queen Victoria, by the late lord of the manor, which was opened 19th July, 1845. The market, held on Saturday, progresses very well, and presents an animated appearance in the evening. A Fair for cattle and merchandise is held on the 6th of May; and another was established in 1854, which is held on the first Wednesday after the 10th of October. Feast, first Sunday after 13th of September. A handsome Town-hall and Market-house was erected in the Italian style, of which the first stone was laid 28th June, 1838, (the coronation of Queen Victoria,) and opened as above stated. A Lock-up prison was erected in connection with the above. It contains 4 cells which are warmed by hot water. Mr. William Hatton is the superintendent, with four assistant constables. Behind the Town Hall is a covered Market-house, with shops for butchers, greengrocers, and other trades. The tower which crowns the Town Hall is provided with an excellent clock, and the whole enclosed by a low wall and palisading. The entire cost has exceeded £8,500, executed under the superintendence of Messrs. Weightman and Hadfield, architects, Sheffield.
In 1818, Howard Town contained only three houses, one a farm house occupied by the Wagstaffs, the other the Howard Arms Inn, and the last one was erected by Mr. Collier, father of the present Mr. Thomas Collier. In 1825, the late Mr. Wood, bought the Old Woollen mill, and in 1826, built six houses on the site thereof, since which period its progress has been very rapid, and it can now boast of many handsome houses, excellent shops, and superior inns. The Temperance Hall, in Howard town, is a neat stone building erected in 1850, by the Rechabite Club, at a cost of £800. A Cemetery is about to be erected on or near the Sheffield road, at the estimated cost of £6,000. There are to be three chapels, one for the church, one for the Dissenters, and one for the Catholics. The Odd Fellows, Foresters, Druids, and the Freemasons, have lodges here and several other Friendly Societies.
The Roman Catholic Chapel, situated on an eminence overlooking the old village of Glossop, is a handsome structure of the Tuscan style. It was erected in 1836, by the late Duke of Norfolk, from a design by and under the direction of Messrs. Weightman and Hadfield, at a cost of £3000. In the interior is a beautiful altar, the work of Mr. George Eadon, of Sheffield; an organ by Bishop, and an ancient picture of the Crucifixion, a copy from the celebrated original at Antwerp. The Chapel, together with Royle house, the chaplain's residence, commands a beautiful prospect of the surrounding hills, forms a pleasing contrast with their romantic wildness, and reflects much credit on the taste as well as the generosity of the noble founder. The Rev Theodore Fauvel is the priest. In connexion with the above are schools for boys and girls. The girls school is situated at Old Glossop; it was built by subscription in 1844, at a cost of about £500; it will hold about 400 children, and is under the care of the Sisters of Charity. The boys school is situated in Talbot street, and was erected in 1852, at a cost of £1400; it is a handsome stone building, with residence for the master, capable of accommodating 600 children; the average attendance is 60.

It is conveyed from there in 7 inch mains, and one half of the town is already supplied with that necessary and useful article at a very moderate cost; besides which that portion of the hamlet of Whitfield called Little Moor is also supplied, a boon which cannot be too highly prized by the inhabitants, considering the great inconvenience they have at various times suffered for the want of it. Indeed, the whole neighbourhood has been greatly benefitted by its introduction into the town; Mr. Chas. Jno. Hadfield, manager.

Glossop School, an ancient school-house containing two rooms, which has lately been enlarged for a Sunday school, the repairs of which have usually been paid out of the churchwardens' account, is endowed with £3710s., placed out at interest on a turnpike security at 5 per cent. The late Duke of Norfolk, who had a considerable estate in this parish, annually made a voluntary donation for the support of the school, and is supposed to have the appointment of the master.

By an indenture, dated 5th of December, 1689, it appears the premises at Bowden Head had been given up to the overseers and churchwardens of Glossop, but on what terms does not appear, but probably, as there is no account in what manner the legacy of £100 was disposed of, that estate was given up in consideration of the legacy. The estate contains 11a, 2r. 24p. let for £20 a year, which is distributed on St. Thomas's day to the poor.

It has been augmented with £600 benefactions, £600 Queen Anne's bounty, and £500 parliamentary grant. The resident freeholders are patrons, and the Rev. Wm. John Brock, B.A., incumbent. In 1819, the church was rebuilt, except the tower, by the inhabitants, unassisted by any public grant, at a cost of £2,000; it is in the modern Gothic style, and has a peal of six bells, The chapelry formerly consisted of Great Hamlet, Phoeside, Kinder, Beard, Ollerset, Thornsett, Chinley, Bugsworth, and Brownside; of these, Beard, Ollersett, Thornsett, and Whittle, now form a new district, with the church at New Mills.

He was born at Chunall, in 1695; he commenced life in a very humble sphere, and afterwards went to London, and became an opulent merchant. He had ten sons and two daughters, who all died in their minority. After the loss of his children, ho adopted a family of the name of Doxon, of Padfield, to whom he gave education and fortunes. He passed the latter part of his life in retirement at Park Hall, in Hayfield, where he died 12th March, 1786, and was buried at Glossop, where the beautiful monument in Hayfield Church was originally erected. The monument was taken down during some alterations in Glossop Church by the late Duke of Norfolk, and placed in one of the cells of the Lock-up for security, but a person of the name of "Marsden," who was confined in the adjoining cell for a breach of the peace, (and who was, as it was afterwards shown, insane,) during the night broke through the partition wall and mutilated the tablet, but the bust which was carefully packed in straw was preserved from injury. It was, however, rescued from untimely destruction by John White, Esq., of Park Hall, and is now deservedly the pride of Hayfield, and the chief ornament in the church. The School, a good substantial building, was erected in 1830, at a cost of £422, raised by subscription; and here are three Sunday schools.

The low massive pillars of the nave, with the deep solemn chancel, have a very striking effect. The cast window is richly decorated with stained glass; the centre light has a beautiful representation of the Annunciation, whilst the figures of St. John and St. Joseph ornament the side lights. These elegant decorations have been executed by Wailes, of Newcastle. The altar, font, and tabernacle are richly painted and gilt after the ancient manner. A capacious font of stone stands at the west end of the south aisle, and a beautiful stone image of the Blessed Virgin is placed in a niche over the west door. The cost of the edifice was chiefly raised by the unwearied exertions of the late Rev John Joseph Collins. Messrs. Weightman and Hadfield, of Sheffield, were the architects. The Rev. Bernard O. Donald, priest. The Wesleyan Methodist chapel was erected in 1810; it is a good stone building, with one bell and clock. In 1844 a day school was added, which is taught on the Glasgow training system, and was opened Sept. 29th, 1845. The Association Methodists have a neat stone chapel, erected in 1838, which, with four cottages, cost £700; and the Primitive Methodists have a good one, built in 1827, at a cost of £500. The Independents have one at Whittle, a good stone building, will hold 550, and has a day school attached. Sunday schools are attached to all the chapels. The Parochial school in Thornsett hamlet was built by subscription, in 1832, at a cost of £350; it is a good stone building and will hold about 300, the average attendance being about 80; a house for the master and mistress is now in course of erection which will cost about £100. The New Mills branch of a London circulating library was established in 1845, at Mr. Robt. Collier's, bookseller, Market-street. Subscribers paying £1 1s. per year, are entitled to order for perusal 10 to 15 volumes of new books annually, those paying 10s. 6d. a year have not the privilege of ordering books, but are entitled to the use of all the books procured for the first class, for whom about 260 volumes are now provided.
Gas Works were established a few years ago, near the river Goyt, by act of parliament, and the proprietors are empowered to carry the gas to Hayfield. The works are in Derbyshire, but near Grove Mill, which is in Cheshire. About 2,000,000 feet of gas is consumed annually. The Ancient Order of Shepherds, and Odd Fellows have lodges here. A fair is held on the 11th of May, and the Feast first Sunday after September the 19th.
Rowarth is a scattered village in Thornsett hamlet, from which it is 1½ mile N., and 4 miles S.W. from Glossop. It is pleasantly situated, and besides some farm-houses, contains Ringstones bleach works, two cotton and one paper mill. The Wesleyan Methodists have a small chapel here. Here is also an Endowed school, where about 40 children receive instruction. New Mills is altogether a busy district, having four calico print works, of which part are on the Cheshire side of the river Goyt, which divides the counties; 6 cotton spinners and manufacturers, and 7 candle manufacturers; Grove Mill, Rock Mill, Strine's Works, Torr and Torr-Top Mills are on the river Goyt; Beard Mill, Garrison Print-works, Bower's Mill, and St. George's Works, a calico printer's engraving establishment, are on the Kinder Brook. The late Mr. John Potts, in 1821, first conceived the idea of adopting the method used by engravers in the Potteries, with a view of producing a more durable and brilliant effect. His experiment was crowned with complete success, and proved the origin of a style of engraving adopted by every calico printer, not only in Great Britain and Ireland, but throughout the whole of Europe and America; previous to which, calico printing was done from wood blocks laid on by hand; it is now performed from engravings on copper rollers, moved by steam or water power, the block being superseded. Mr. Potts had a picture gallery, which contained many fine specimens of rare and valuable paintings in oil and water colours, since disposed of. Mr. Samuel Ready has succeeded to the engraving establishment, which is carried on with great success. The Kinder Brook has its source from the western side of Kinderscout, and its confluence with the river Goyt near the Torr, at Hibberts's mill.
The original name of New Mills was Bowden-Middle-Cale, situated along the north bank of the Goyt, and reaching from Kinderscout to Mellor. It formerly comprised the ten hamlets of Beard, Ollerset, Whittle, Thornsett, Great Hamlet, Phoeside, Kinder, Chinley, Bugsworth, and Brownside; about a century ago it was subdivided, when three of the hamlets were attached to Hayfield, three to Chinley, and the remaining four formed this township. Previous to this division, the inhabitants all ground their corn at a common mill in Hayfield; but, upon the division, a new mill was erected upon the Kinder, in the hamlet of Ollersett, and the name New Mills was in consequence conferred on the four hamlets. The village now forms a cluster of factories and houses, which rise one above another, from the bank of the river to the summit of the crags, a height of several hundred feet.
Hayfield Poor Law Union consists of four townships, having seventeen guardians, who meet every other Monday at 2 o'clock, at the Workhouse, a substantial stone building, erected in 1840 and 1841, at a cost of £2,700, to accommodate 87 inmates. It is situated in the hamlet of Ollersett, on a new road from Hayfield, which passes the Church and joins the London road at the Swan inn, Disley. The places comprised in the Union are Beard, Ollersett, Whitle, and Thornsett, which form a joint township, for which five guardians are elected; Hayfield, for which four guardians are elected; and Mellor, with four guardians. Disley township, with four guardians, is situated in Cheshire. The Union contains a population of 29,712 souls, of whom 14,850 were males and 14,862 females. There are at present 56 in and 140 out door paupers. Chairman to the Board of Guardians, John White, Esq.; Clerk and Superintendent Registrar, Mr. John Slater; Master and Matron, Job and Betty Harrison; Surgeon, Mr. Thomas Richard Jackson, New Mills; Relieving Officer and Registrar of Births, Deaths, and Marriages, Mr. Job Harrison.
Charities - Mary Trickett, by will dated 17th April, 1712, devised all her land, in Rushop, in the parish of Chapel-en-le-Frith, to Mary Trickett and two others, and their heirs, the rents, to be employed by them yearly, for ever, for the use of the poor of Bowden Middlecale; for clothing or keeping of poor children to school. The property consists of a house, with barn and out buildings, a garden, and three closes, containing in the whole, with homestead, 16a. 3r. 12p., situated at Bowden Edge, now let for £28 a year. Previous to May, 1823, it had been let on a long lease for £8 5s. per annum; and £60 was paid for dilapidation of the buildings, which have been put in a complete state of repair, at an expense of £95, and some improvements are to be made. The rent was formerly paid in equal portions to the overseers of Chinley, Hayfield, and New Mills, and expended in cloth. For the last five or six years (1826), the amount of the rent subject to the repairs has been applied in instructing poor children of the above named places in reading and writing. It seems advisable that some steps should be taken for ascertaining who was the surviving trustee under the will of Mary Trickett, and procuring a conveyance from her heir to new trustees,
Thomas Moult bequeathed 10s. to be paid from his estate, called Whicken, in Chinley, to a schoolmaster or mistress teaching at Chinley school, The owner of Whicken pays the rent charge to the master.
George Green, of Fourlane Ends, by will, bequeathed 10s, a year to a schoolmaster at Chinley, teaching grammar. This has not, for many years, been paid, on the ground that it is not a grammar school. The date of the will is not known; we are unable to refer thereto.
Nicholas Lingard, as stated on a tablet in the schoolroom, bequeathed 6s. a year to a schoolmaster at Chinley school, to be paid from Estmeats estate, in Chinley, and likewise 6s. charged on the Dakins estate, provided it be freed from the office of overseer of the poor. The master is appointed by the principal inhabitants, and keeps a school in a room long used for that purpose, who receives the above small donations, and one-third of the clear rent of Trickett's charity, already mentioned, and for which last four are taught reading, writing, and accounts.
Thomas Harrison, by will, in 1706, gave to the poor of Chinley, £10.; also, Sarah Carrington, by will, gave to the poor, £6. Both sums were vested with the overseers, and, in 1754, were expended towards building a house for paupers belonging the township, and it was agreed, at a vestry meeting, that 13s. 64. should be paid yearly out of the poor rates , as interest for this sum. The interest is distributed to the poor on St. Thomas's day.
Bernard Jenkinson, by will, 1786, bequeathed £100 stock, in the four per cent, bank annuities, to the churchwardens and overseers of the poor of the parish of Glossop, in trust, to distribute the interest yearly amongst the poor of the hamlets of Brownside and Chinley. The stock in the old four per cents, at the time of our inquiry, still stood in the name of Bernard Jenkinson. Some steps had been taken towards obtaining the money payable on the reduction of that stock, but it had not been received, in consequence of some difficulty in respect to the probate of the will. We have reason to hope no further delay will take place, and that the money will be reinvested. The dividends were distributed on St. Thomas's day, in sums varying from 1s. to 3s.
John Hyde, by will dated 8th Sept., 1604, gave certain premises to the Merchant Tailors' Company, London, upon trust, amongst other things, to pay £10 yearly to the minister of the gospel at Hayfield, in Derbyshire, for teaching grammar in a school within the chapel. The sum of £10 is transmitted by the clerk of the said company to the incumbent.
Mary Gaskell charged upon her estate, called Barns' Fold, £3 18s., to be paid to the incumbent, as master of the grammar school. The estate is now the property of John White, Esq., of Park Hall.
John Hadfield left the use of £60 for ever to a licensed master for teaching petties, as well as others more proficient, at the:chapel at Hayfield. £2 10s, is paid yearly as a rent charge on his estate at Shudehill.
Mary Trickett, - (already noticed.) One third of the clear yearly rents is paid to the master of this school.
Hague's Gift, - (already noticed.) The yearly sum of £3 18s. 2d. is paid to the master of this school for the education of ten children.
On account of the income derived from the above donations, a school is taught in an ancient building in Hayfield, called the Grammar Schoolhouse. This place has since been sold, and the money applied in building a new school, which cost. £422. Fifteen children are taught reading, writing, and accounts, without any charge - 4 in respect of Trickett's, and 11 of Hague's charity.
John Hague, Esq., by will dated 19th Feb., 1781, bequeathed to Dorothy Hague and five others, and their executors, the sum of £100, upon trust, to apply the yearly produce thereof to the schoolmaster of a certain school in Hayfield, called Hayfield School, who should instruct eight poor children in the said school gratis. We are informed this legacy was charged upon an estate called Barns' Fold, near Hayfield, which was purchased by Mrs. Dorothy Hague, and that, by her will, she directed that the yearly payment thereout should be increased to £16.
Joseph Hague, Esq. - (See Glossop.) The yearly sum of £3 14s. 6d. for this township is laid out in linen cloth, and distributed to the poor, by the incumbent, in winter.
John Bennett, by will, 1731, gave to his cousin, John Bennett, all his estates at Smithfield, on condition that he should pay to the churchwardens, yearly, the sum of 40s. on every 12th day of December, for the use of the poor of Great Hamlet, Phoeside, and Kinder, to be distributed on Christmas day, for ever. The estate belongs to John White, Esq., of Park Hall, by whom the 40s. is paid to the churchwardens, and distributed as above.
Edward Bennett, by will, directed his executors to pay and apply the yearly interest of the sum of £60, owing to him on the Hayfield turnpike road, yearly, for ever, amongst poor persons of the hamlets of Great Hamlet, Phoeside, and Kinder. He also directed his executors, after the death of his wife, to place and keep at interest, on good security, a sufficient sum of money out of his personal estate, as would produce a clear yearly sum of £7, and pay and apply the same amongst such poor persons of the above-named hamlets. The widow of the testator died in 1824, and means were about to be taken to secure a sum sufficient to produce the yearly sum of £7, at 4½ per cent. The whole has been distributed as above, by Mr. Gee, the executor. He also left £2 2s. per annum to, and for a minister performing service in the Wesleyan Methodist chapel.
Fanny Marriott, who died February, 1821, bequeathed £50 to her executors, John Lingard and Ebenezer Glossop, on trust, to divide the interest thereof, yearly, on the 25th of December, amongst the poor of Great Hamlet, Phoeside, and Kinder. The sum of £2 5s. 0d. is distributed in sums of 5s, to the most needy, by Mr. John Gee.
John Baddeley Radcliff's Charity, - (See Chapel-en-le-Frith.) The sum of £2 13s. 4d. was left annually to the poor of this township, but is lost.
Rev. Francis Gisborne's Charity. - (See Bradley.) The annual sum of £5 10s. received by the incumbent, is laid out in the purchase of flannel and coarse woollen cloth, and distributed amongst the poor of this township.
