|"Most of the places described, the author has
himself visited : The northern, and most interesting part of the county,
has engaged a great portion of his attention : and its remains of antiquity,
and objects of curiosity, were personally inspected during the course
of last summer" (Davies, D. P., Preface).
These transcripts are designed as an aid for amateur genealogists and
for those interested in Derbyshire history, providing information on
the communities within the county from the early nineteenth century.
Whilst place names appear in the book under the various ecclesiastical
divisions existing at the time, they are presented here in alphabetical
order, with the Deanery or Archdeaconry for the parish shown below
Included from August 2007 are two wonderful engravings by the early
nineteenth century Derbyshire artist Henry Moore:

An Ann Andrews book transcript
This was one of the first Internet projects I undertook and I have
now added to my earlier work, with a great deal of additional
material. The book is long - there are 717 pages - so it was never
my intention to reproduce the volume in its entirety but the latest
additions go a long way towards providing most of the contents. - A.A.
