bullet  General Notes:

Name: Downs, David Record Type: Deaths Age at death: 74 Quarter: March Year: 1888 District: Hayfield County: Cheshire Derbyshire Volume: 7b Page: 533 [DavidDowns.FTW] GLOSSOP: is a village and township, in the populous and extensive parish of its name, in the hundred of High Peak; 184 miles from London. 50 N.N.W. from Derby, 25 N.W. from Sheffield, and 13 S.E. from Manchester. This village, which is one of great manufacturing consequence, is situate on a rising bank, springing from one of the deepest valleys in the Peak. The country around is very pleasing, and many of the views may be considered romantic: plantations abound in the home scenery, and the lands in the low grounds are fertile; but the mountainous parts are less productive. In Glossop and its vicinity there are upwards of forty establishments for the spinning of cotton, and the manufacture of various fabrics from that article; for calico printing also, there is an extensive concern at Dinting-vale, and woollen goods are made to a limited extent: there are, besides, two paper mills ill the neighbourhood, at one of which (Dinting Mill), the article is manufactured by patent machinery. Coal is worked about three miles hence, and from these mines Glossop and the neighbourhood are principally supplied.
