This page is a list of all information on my site relating to Great Hucklow so far there is the following:-
description of Great Hucklow from the 1857 Trade Directory
Hucklow, Great, township and pleasant village,
on the Sheffield and Tideswell road, 2¼ miles N.E. from
Tideswell, contains 1,166 acres of land, partly on grit, and partly
on limestone, and in 1851, had 51 houses, and 232 inhabitants, of
whom 124 were male and 108 female; rateable value £965. Mrs
Wake, of Sheffield, is the lady of the manor and considerable owner.
The executors of late John Radford Esq., and several others, are
freeholders. This is a rich mineral district, and lead mines extend
east and west of the village, to a considerable distance. Mining is
the chief employment of the inhabitants . The Wesleyan Methodists
have a neat chapel here, erected in 1806, and the Unitarians have a
good one, erected in1796, of which the Rev. Robert Shenton is the
pastor. The Presbyterian congregation was first established at Great
Hucklow, by the Rev. William Bagshaw, acelebrated nonconformist
divine, commonly called the Apostle of the Peak; he was also a native
of the village.Great Hucklow was formerly parcel of the Duchy of
Lancaster, manor of the High Peak, on lease to the Duke of
Devonshire. Ralph de Archer, held a messuage and lands in Great
Hucklow, in the reign of Edward I., by the service of keeping the
King's forest with bow and arrows. A considerable freehold estate,
then called manor in Great Hucklow, belonged to the Earl of
Newcastle, in the reign of Charles I. This estate was sold to John
Bagshaw, Esq., of Hucklow, from whom it passed by descent to the
family of Rich, and the principal part was purchased some time ago by
John Radford, Esq., of Smalley, in whose family it is still vested.
Feast last Sunday in August.
