North West Derbyshire Sources

Welcome. Many names are spelt differently to what might be anticipated.  One minister even had Mary as `Marey` therefore try different spelling combinations in your search.

My name is Marjorie Ward & I am gradually accumulating a variety of sources for the North West Derbyshire area. At the moment the site contains parts of the 1811; 1841; 1851; 1881; 1891 and 1901 census plus  parish & chapel registers; hearth tax; polling; jury and directory entries.  If you find any faults on the site - or require further information please e-mail me but remove the 8 from the email address.

If you think that your family may have strayed across the border into Cheshire, then they could be on my other site at
