Hartshorne  Derbyshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Hartshorne like this:

HARTSHORN, a village, a parish, and a sub-district, in the district of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, and county of Derby. The village stands 3 miles W of the boundary with Leicestershire, and 3 ½ NW of Ashby-de-le-Zouch r. station: and has a post office under Burton-upon-Trent. The parish comprises 2, 510 acres. ...

Real property, £6, 618. Pop. in 1851, 1, 350; in 1861, 1, 541. Houses, 315. The increase of pop. arose from the extension of coal mining and pottery manufacture. The property is divided among a few. An old manor House is occupied by Mrs. Mansfield. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Lichfield. Value, £540. * Patrons, the Earl of Chesterfield and Nadin, Esq. The church is ancient, with a tower; and was partly re-built in 1835. There are chapels for Baptists and Wesleyans, an endowed school with £77, other charities with £13, a handsome new girls' school, mainly supported by the rector.—The sub-district contains also three other parishes, parts of two more, and an extra-parochial tract in Derbyshire, and parts of three parishes in Leicestershire. Acres, 14, 007. Pop., 6, 207. Houses, 1, 319.
