NEWBOLD-CUM-DUNSTON is a parish, formed 4 Feb. 1861, from portions of the chapelries of St. Thomas, Brampton, the district of Holy Trinity, Chesterfield and Whittington parish which joins to and extends about 1½ miles north-west from Chesterfield, and about 1 south from Sheepbridge station on the Midland railway, in the Chesterfield division of the county, hundred of Scarsdale, Chesterfield union, petty sessional division and county court district, rural deanery of Dronfield, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell. The parish is governed by a local board of 9 members, formed 25 July, 1873. The village is lighted with gas and supplied with water by the Chesterfield Water Works and Gas Light Co. The church of St. John the Evangelist, erected in 1857, is an edifice of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and a western turret containing one bell: there are sittings for 320 persons, 209 of which are free: the ancient chapel of Newbold, a building with Norman and Perpendicular features, after being nearly demolished by a Protestant mob and losing all its monuments, in the reign of William III. was desecrated and used as a cowhouse : it is now utterly desolate, though occasionally used as a place of interment by the Eyre family, to whom it belongs. The register dates from the year 1857. The living was declared a rectory 11 June, 1867, gross average value from tithe rent-charge £238, with residence, in the gift of the vicar of Chesterfield, and held since 1888 by the Rev. Tufnell Cowper Alliston Barrett M.A. of Jesus College, Cambridge. There is a mission church at Newbold Moor, in connection with St. John's, built in 1871, with sittings for 250. Christ Church, Stonegravels, erected in 1869, as a chapel of ease to Holy Trinity, Chesterfield, is a building of stone, consisting of apsidal chancel, nave, south porch and a western turret containing one bell : there are 135 sittings and a parsonage house; the Rev. William John Parker is curate in charge. There is a Wesleyan Methodist chapel at Little Moor and others at Newbold Moor and at Stonegravels. In the parish are almshouses, erected and endowed in 1778 by Miss Elizabeth Tomlinson for three aged females, who receive one shilling and sixpence per week each. The Sheep bridge Coal and Iron Company Limited are extensive iron manufacturers and coal proprietors. There are potteries for the manufacture of stone bottles and brown ware; brick and tile making is also carried on. Races are held here in the month of August. The Duke of Devonshire K.G. is lord of the manor and principal landowner; other landowners are Joseph Crawford Bromehead esq. M.A. of Newbold House, the trustees of Maynard Lucas esq. the trustees of William Broughton, of Smith Mills and Mrs. Brodhurst. The soil is clay; subsoil, clay. Two-thirds of the land is pasture. The chief crops are wheat and oats. The area of the parish is 2,400 acres; rateable value, £23,525; the population in 1871 was 4,500, and in 1881 was 6,404.
