Early Records: Vills & Freeholders in Derbyshire 1633

Updated: Sunday, July 3, 2011   |   Belper Historical & Genealogical Website

This is a transcription of The Vills and Freeholders of Derbyshire in 1633. It is extracted from the Journal of the Derbyshire Archaelogical Society -Volume 6 page 49 . 1884-1885. Freeholders, or free tenants were those who held portions of the demesne lands, as opposed to land held in villenage.

The Belper section is contained in the Appletree Hundred

Preamble to the List:

The following list has been transcribed from a MS. in the possession of Mr. G. A.Cubley, of Sheffield, who has kindly allowed it to be printed. The MS., which is of small quarto size, is written on paper bound m a parchment wrapper. It is evidently a draft, and is written in a good clerical hand, with erasures and additions by a more dashing but much more illegible writer. The additions are distinguished by being printed in italics.

It will be noticed that the list does not include the town of Derby. I conjecture that it was made for some legal purpose, and that this town fell under a different assessment. Only one freeholder, " Arthur Mower," is given under the head of Chesterfield.

The abbreviated words alloc. bre, p'cator, etc., written in the margin, present some difficulty. The former may be allocatinis breve, meaning a writ or certificateof excuse, and I conjecture, with considerable diffidence, that the latter may be procurator.

If we take this document as a jury list, as probably it is, the words written in the margin become intelligible. Moreover, the absence of the names of peers, etc., is accounted for. I have expanded mil’ terr-'' whenever it occurs into militaris terra, that is land held by knight-service.
