BRIEF HISTORY OF ECKINGTON, DERBY

The population of Eckington jumped from 4401,in 1841 to 6085 in 1861, for many industries were expanding. In the main several Coal Mines were being sunk.

During April, 1844 there was a miner’s strike. The workers were seeking recognition of their association and a rise in wages, but the strike was unsuccessful. (Probably Mrs. Thatcher’s Grandmother lived in the area!!).

To meet the demands of coal, the deeper mines, requiring more capital and machinery, were being sunk by the early 1860’s. Other industries were the production of sickles, scythes and iron. Spinning wheels and chairs were also being made. A local Quarry was also established.

In 1845 three main events took place, the building of the Catholic Church at Spinkhill; the granting of two cattle fairs in April and October at Eckington and the holding of the Eckington Races on the 2nd and 3rd of July. These Races, attracted 7000 people on the first day and a cloudburst on the second.

In 1852, Eckington gained its first Police Station. (Now the Parish Council Offices). In 1860 the Eckington Gas Works were built and in the same year Hornthorpe Colliery Band was formed.

A tannery and a boot factory were being operated. The parish was still expanding and doubled its population in the 30 years from 1861 to 1891, from 6085 to 12357. Coal and iron industries were booming and there was a tremendous increase in building.

On 10 January 1871, there was a major disaster at the Wells Renishaw Park Pit. 25 men and 2 boys were killed and 12 injured. 17 of the dead came from Eckington village, they had been killed not by the explosion but by Gas.

During the late 1870’s there was a slump in coal and 600 men were out of work, following cut backs. The Parish Magazine was discontuinued in December 1878, because the cost of 1.5d. was too dear for the local population.

During 1877-8 the Parish Church at Eckington was restored, services being held in Camm’s school while it was closed. A Burial Board, established in 1875, had by 1878 completed the new cemetery of 6 acres. This contained two mortuary chapels and after 26 March 1878, no graves were permitted in the church yard.

In the 1904 local Directory, the following had been established in Eckington.

28 Grocers; 19 Butchers; 11 Drapers; 8 Blacksmiths; 6 Confectioners;

5 Tobacconists; 4 Bakers; 4 Fruiters; 4 Green Grocers and 3 Fish Mongers.

 

One interesting point was that we had known of a rumour, that one of the relatives had been deported for stealing a sheep. The details of this man has now also been traced.

His name was Joseph Hardy. He was the 3 x Great Grandfather of David Calder Hardy, of New Zealand. and also the brother of William Hardy, who is the 3 x Great Grandfather of Raymond Hardy in New Zealand and of course Gordon Hardy etc.

Joseph Hardy was born 11 March 1792 at Higham, Shirland, Derbys. He married a Sarah Cooper on 15 May 1817, at Saint Marys Church, Wirksworth, Derbyshire.

He was a Butcher by trade and later stole a Cow, at Matlock Green and was sentenced to a period of 12 years detention and deported to NSW, Australia. He received a full pardon after 12 years. Joseph never returned to England and died on 5 November 1854, in his own Butchery premises at Kaiama some 80 miles south of Sydney, Australia.

His wife Sarah Hardy, was born in 1797 at Callow, Matlock. When her husband was deported Sarah remained at Matlock, Derbyshire. She never found out that Joseph had died and kept putting his name on the Census Returns, showing that she was still a married woman.

She took in washing and was very active at the St Giles Church at Matlock. She never once applied for parish assistance and was 89 years old when she died on 28 June 1883, at Church Street, Matlock, Derbys

HARDY FAMILY TREE

Having recently made a break through with our Family History enquiries of the Hardy Clan at Shirland, Derbyshire, I thought it an opportune time to burst forth into print again.

You may recall that we had hit a complete dead end with regard to Lavinia - first wife of Alfred Hardy (Great Grandfather) and Susannah Purseglove - second wife of Alfred. The problem with Lavinia was that we did not know her Maiden name and there was no trace of her in the burial books at Shirland.

It also transpired that I was going down the wrong line with Susannah, at Old Brampton, Derbyshire, there being many Pursegloves in that area. Searching the births records at Matlock, for both these females, over a period of time did not reveal any clues, for we did not know their years of birth.

With regards Susannah, the first glimmer of light came from Raymond Hardy in New Zealand, when he searched the IGI ( Mormon) files and came up with a Susannah Purseglove at Shirland and a date in 1861. After further inquiries Raymond came up with the birth certificates of Alfred Hardy and Susannah Purseglove. This gave us the parents of both and a further step back in time.

Avis and I made many, many further searches at Matlock Local Studies and the Records Office.

In addition two other major break throughs occurred after we joined the Family Tree Rootsweb Research Pages on the Internet. These Web Sites are dedicated purely to Family History research. There are pages for every County in the UK and people from Countries all over the World join these pages searching for their family origins.

Two such persons, who picked up on our messages were:

1) David Calder Hardy, from King Country, New Zealand.

( He has traced his family back to the year 900!!)

2) Rex Johnson of Messingham, South Humberside.

As a result of joint enquiries the following has now been pieced together.

For ease of reference I am still commencing with Alfred Hardy, our Great Grandfather. The Family History established prior to him, is listed on the attached sheets.

He was born at Shirland, Derbyshire on 19 September, 1843. His parents were William Hardy (a Butcher/Farmer) and Matilda Midgley. There were four other known children of that marriage.

Alfred Hardy (Senior) was a Butcher, he moved from Shirland and became resident at Angel Row, Nottingham. He married a Lavinia Cupit, on 27 May, 1867, at St Marys Church in the town of Nottingham. ( Her parents were Thomas Cupit and Hannah Cupit - nee Kerry).

There were two children of that marriage. Matilda Hardy born 9 August, 1867 at Higham, Shirland. Matilda never married and in later life lived with her brother a Alfred Hardy ( Junior), born 15 March, 1870, at Stonebroom, Shirland. He married Harriett Elizabeth Herriman Thrope. They had five children. (Two grand children of Alfred (Junior) have now been traced and visited, they live in Chesterfield, Derbyshire)

Lavinia Hardy (Cupit) died on 9 December, 1876, of an infection from a knee injury. This left Alfred (Senior) with his then, two young children to look after. (Aged 9 and 6 years). In the 1881 Census it shows that Matilda was at that time living with her Grand Parents at Shirland.

A little bit of supposition is now introduced here. Alfred (Senior) was 33 years, in 1876, and having two young children, it is believed that he employed Susannah Purseglove a waif of a girl of some 16 years, to look after his two off springs. She would be living in and the inevitable happened, for it is now known she became pregnant and gave birth to an Albert Purseglove on 14 July 1878 at High Street, Eckington, Derbys. This was two days before her 17th birthday. Albert’s Birth Certificate shows no father’s name.

Susannah’s Purseglove’s Father, was a Thomas Purseglove and her Mother was an Elizabeth Purseglove (nee Tomlinson). It is thought they would have been ‘up in arms’, when they realized their 16 year old daughter was pregnant. The mining village of Eckington was in the process of being raised at that time and Alfred Hardy (Senior) had moved and set up a small Butchers business in that area. ( See attached history of Eckington in the 1800’s).

It appears that Thomas Purseglove must have cooled down over the next few months for on the

18 November 1878, (four months after young Albert had been born), Alfred Hardy ( Senior) and Susannah Purseglove were married at the Parish Church at Eckington, Derbyshire. One of the witnesses was a Thomas Purseglove, a Frame Work Knitter. (He probably had a shot gun in his hands at this time!!).

On the marriage certificate, Susannah gave her age as 18 years, (she was actually 17) and Alfred Hardy gave his age as 34 years. (he was actually 35).

On the 13 December, 1878, Alfred and Susannah had young Albert Purseglove christened at the Parish Church at Eckington. They had him christened Albert HARDY.

Enquiries are still being made as to the actual site of Alfred’s (Senior) Butcher Business at Eckington.

This business did not last long, for on 16 July 1880, Susannah Hardy gave birth to Ernest Hardy (Our Grandfather) at Stonebroom Lane, Stonebroom, Shirland. There were FIVE further children of that marriage.

Probably from exhaustion, Alfred Hardy ( Senior) a Butcher/Farmer, died on 15 July, 1893, at Shirland, after siring nine children. He was buried in Shirland Church Yard, with a smile on his face.

The death certificate shows that he died after four days of Pneumonia at the age of 49 years. His brother Arthur Hardy was present at the death.

Susannah Hardy died on 24 November, 1914, aged 53 years, at Town End, Shirland. Her death certificate shows the cause of death as 1) Diabetes Mellitus 2) Coma. Present at the death was A. Hardy, son. This would have been Albert Purseglove, her first born. ( A copy of her last will and testament is attached)

Enquiries are still being made regarding Albert’s marriage and death certificate, just to see what surname he used. He married a Nellie Shaw and the youngest son of Alfred and Susannah, a James Christopher Hardy, married a Bella Shaw. (i.e: Two Brothers marrying two Sisters.)

 

 

There we have it todate.

Enquiries are still being made regarding the earlier Hardy’s. We have now gone back to Hugh Hardy marrying an Ann Bird 25 November, 1709, at Messingham, Lincolnshire. 6 x G Grandparents.

Hugh was born in 1684, possibly in Lincolnshire and Ann Bird was born 26 March 1676 in Horncastle, Lincs. ( See Descendants Sheet of Hugh Hardy).

I have also traced a current family of Hardy’s in Messingham, Lincs, (South Humberside) area. I have visited several of these. Enquiries are still being made to connect them to our Family Tree.

(See Sheet of this family - attached).

One interesting point was that we had known of a rumour, that one of the relatives had been deported for stealing a sheep. The details of this man has now also been traced.

His name was Joseph Hardy. He was the 3 x Great Grandfather of David Calder Hardy, of New Zealand. and also the brother of William Hardy, who is the 3 x Great Grandfather of Raymond Hardy in New Zealand and of course Gordon Hardy etc.

Joseph Hardy was born 11 March 1792 at Higham, Shirland, Derbys. He married a Sarah Cooper on 15 May 1817, at Saint Marys Church, Wirksworth, Derbyshire.

He was a Butcher by trade and later stole a Cow , he was sentenced to a period of 12 years detention and deported to Australia. He never returned to England and died on 5 November 1854 in Kaiama, Australia. His wife Sarah died on 28 June 1883 at Matlock, Derbys.

He was a Butcher by trade and later stole a Cow, at Matlock Green and was sentenced to a period of 12 years detention and deported to NSW, Australia. He received a full pardon after 12 years. Joseph never returned to England and died on 5 November 1854, in his own Butchery premises at Kaiama some 80 miles south of Sydney, Australia.

His wife Sarah Hardy, was born in 1797 at Callow, Matlock. When her husband was deported Sarah remained at Matlock, Derbyshire. She never found out that Joseph had died and kept putting his name on the Census Returns, showing that she was still a married woman.

She took in washing and was very active at the St Giles Church at Matlock. She never once applied for parish assistance and was 89 years old when she died on 28 June 1883, at Church Street, Matlock, Derbys

Here below are three different descriptions of Shirland, written in

1835, 1848 and 1857, respectively, plus an interpolation from Bulmer's

1895 Directory.

1835:   A very brief pen picture of Shirland, as given by Pigot and

Co's Directory of Derbyshire, 1835, p.11:-

SHIRLAND  is a parish, in the hundred of Scarsdale, two miles SW from

Alfreton, containing the hamlet of higham, which was formerly a market

town, but discontinued as such about 1785.  Higham is a place of

considerable antiquity, situate on the Iknield Street of the Romans.

The parish church, dedicated to St Leonard, contains several ancient

monuments of the DE GREYS.  The parish contained, in 1831, 1,212

inhabitants, and Higham 595 of that number.

________________________________

1848:   Another description, as given by Samuel Lewis in his

"Topographical Dictionary of England", 7th edition, 1848, Vol 4,

p.86:-

SHIRLAND  (St Leonard)  a parish in the Union of Chesterfield, hundred

of Scarsdale, Northern Division of the County of Derby, two miles

north by west from Alfreton;  containing 1381 inhabitants, of whom 930

are in Shirland township.  The parish comprises about 3000 acres, of

which 1000 are arable, and the remainder pasture and meadow, with a

considerable portion of woodland;  the soil is tolerably fertile, and

the substratum clay, with some seams of coal.

The living is a Rectory, valued in the King's Books at 17 pounds 15

shillings and 5 pence, and in the gift of the Earl of Thanet, W.E.

NIGHTINGALE, Esq, and Mrs CHARGE, who present [the Rector] by turns.

The Tithes have been commuted for UKP 175, and the glebe [church land]

comprises 60 acres, with a house;  there is also a rent-charge of UKP

19 payable to the Rector of Morton.

The Church, erected in the 14th century, consists of a nave, chancel,

aisles, and tower with pinnacles;  in it are the remains of a singular

monument with numerous quarterings [of arms] of the DE GREY, the

FERRERS, and other families.

At Hallfieldgate is a charity school, built on a site given by Edward

REVELL, and endowed by Mrs Lydia BOOT, Mr STOCKS, and others, with

about UKP 25 per annum :  there are also a National and a Church

Sunday School in the parish.

_________________________________

1857:   Nearly ten years later, we have the more detailed description

given by "History, Gazetteer and Directory of the County of Derby", by

Francis White and Co, 1857, pp.771-2 (plus the interpolation from

Bulmer):-

SHIRLAND, a township and extensive parish, contains, with the hamlets

of Higham and Hallfieldgate, 2942 acres of land;  and in 1851 had 272

houses and 1268 inhabitants, of whom 654 were males and 614 females.

SHIRLAND itself, is a pleasant village, on the Chesterfield road, 2

miles N by W from Alfreton, 2 miles SE from Stretton Station, and 15

miles NE from Derby.  In 1851, it had 188 houses, and 851 inhabitants,

of whom 437 were males, and 414 females.

The principal land owners are:-

-   Gladwin TURBUTT, Esq (who also owns a third and a sixth of the

manor)

-   Henry HARDSTUFF, Esq

-   Mrs Charlotte PAGE

-   Robert MILWARD, Esq

-   Mr William HARDY

-   Mr Richard HOPKINSON

-   Mr John CLAY

-   Mr William CLAY

-   William Palmer MOREWOOD, Esq

The land is partly freehold and partly copyhold;  and the freeholders

claim their own manorial rights.  The soil is various, and coal is

found in great plenty;   camomile is cultivated to a considerable

extent,  and many of the inhabitants are employed in frame-work

knitting.

The Church, dedicated to St Leonard, is an ancient structure, erected

about the 14th century, has nave, chancel, side aisles, and handsome

pinnacled tower, with a peal of five bells.  In 1848 it underwent a

thorough restoration, being new roofed, re-pewed, &c, at a cost of

about UKP 1000, raised by subscriptions and rate;  at the same time a

beautiful font was placed near the south entrance;  and in 1854 an

organ was placed in the west gallery, at a cost of UKP 80, by

subscription.

The living is a Rectory, valued in the King's Books at 7 pounds 15

shillings and 5 pence, now UKP 256.  It is in the alternate patronage

of Sir R. TUFTON, baronet, the Rev William E. NIGHTINGALE, and John

CHARGE, Esq.  The Rev Thomas GRINFIELD, MA, is the Rector, and the Rev

Charles Henry RAMSDEN, MA, the officiating Curate.  The Tithe has been

commuted for UKP 175, and here are 60 acres of glebe [church land].

The Rectory is a good residence, a little north of the Church.

In the chancel of the Church, under a richly ornamented crocketed

arch, with a pinnacle at each side, lies the mutilated figure of a

knight in plate armour, ornamented with scrolls of foliage;   the

front of the tomb is covered with shields of arms, amongst which are

several of the family of GREY, of Shirland, ancestors of the Lords

GREY-de-Wilton, who possessed this manor for several generations.

There is also a memorial of John REVIL [Revell], Esq, who died in 1537

[and Margaret his wife].

[Bulmer's 1895 Directory adds:

The REVELLS settled at Ogston, in the neighbouring township, in the

14th century.  They also possessed land at Higham in this parish,

where a branch of the family was resident.  Thomas REVELL, of Higham,

in 1474, founded a charity in this Church, and it was further endowed

by other members of the family.  This chantry was at the east end of

the north aisle, and the above table-tomb occupies the site of the

altar.  The last heir male of this branch of the REVELLS died in 1706,

leaving two sisters, coheirs, one of whom married Richard TURBUTT,

Esq.  There are several modern tablets in the Church to members of the

families of:  BARLOW, BURNHAM, BOOT, HOPKINSON, WILLIAMSON, SIDDALL,

CLAY, OLDHAM, and LAVERACK.]

National Schools, with a residence for the Master, were erected in

1852, at a cost of UKP 870, raised by subscriptions, aided by a

Parliamentary grant of 133 pounds 10 shillings.  It is a handsome

stone building near the Rectory, with accommodation for about 150

children.  Here also is a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, erected by

William OAKES, Esq.

In the first year of Edward II [1307/8], Reginald de GREY was

possessed of the manor and advowson of the church, which afterwards

came to the TALBOTS, and, in 1628, the co-heiresses of Gilbert, Earl

of SHREWSBURY, carried them to different families.

Shirland Park, one mile SE from the village, is a district of

scattered farms.  Mrs Elizabeth MARSHALL, a resident here, is in the

94th year of her age.
