Field acres 1790

Land owned by Philip GELL of Hopton Hall around 1790 and let to various tenant farmers. Much of this land has since been flooded by Carsington Water since 1970.

The records described below, obtained in pdf format on CD from Derbyshire Record Office, have been transcribed and traced by the author and may contain errors. The land was owned by Philip Gell of Hopton Hall, and let to various tenant farmers. Dates appear to be "Late 18th cent and 1798", and the records contain field names, areas, value per acre and charge to the tenant. Around 1990 much of the land was flooded to create Carsington Water reservoir, and many of the fields were lost under the water. The single piece of folded foolscap is numbered side 1 (inside) and side 2 (outside). Three sketch maps of two of the farms have been traced and are included.

DERBYSHIRE MAPS:
SUMMARY GUIDE

This is a quick research aid to manuscript maps held in collections in Derbyshire Record Office. Entries are arranged by place. Further details are given in catalogues available for reference in Derbyshire Record Office Search Room. These should be checked before requests are made for documents to be consulted. Where places were not subject to tithe and therefore no Tithe Map was created, this is noted. Please also note that copyright restrictions may apply to maps in this list and that it may not be possible to supply copies of outsize or fragile maps.

From Derbyshire Record Office, 12dec2015
Dear John,
Thanks for your email. Tithe maps were drawn up under the Tithe Commission for England and Wales, so they don't feature in private archives such as Gell. Each township or parish had its own, so if for instance you looked at the Carsington tithe map (dated 1839) and award (1838) you would probably find a good deal of it belonged to the Gells. Tithe maps are handy in that respect, because they do include field names - however, they work parish by parish, and the information is contained not on the map but on the award, so it would be quite a lot of work. On the plus side, tithe awards are arranged alphabetically by owner, so you would just have to find the "Gell" section and copy that. If you wanted our staff to do so on your behalf, that would be fine - we would need to know which parishes/townships you wanted us to check, and you would need to pay for as many half-hour chunks of staff time as you think appropriate - when the time ran out, we would let you have the results up to that point. Probably the most efficient way of communicating the information to you would be for us to scan the relevant sections of each award from microfilm. If it was your intention to reproduce those images online or in print, we ask you to let us know about that intention early on so we can establish the charges for that.

To order some research, please go to www.derbyshire.gov.uk/recordoffice and click "our services" then "research service".

Yours,
Mark (Smith)
