Extracts relating to Woodeaves

Copyright © 2005 Eileen Simms

Eileen has gathered a range of information relating to this fascinating little community tucked away in the south east corner of Tissington Parish.  It started life, as the name suggests as a farm (the current farmhouse is a sixteenth or seventeenth building) on the edge of Tissington woodland, but grew significantly because of the eighteenth century mill.  Following our walk there last summer here are some extracts on Woodeaves.

Conveyance of Woodeaves Farm 20 November 1652

Abstract: Indenture between William Fitzherbert of  Tissington, … Fitzherbert and Anthony Fitzherbert gent., younger brother of the said William Fitzherbert and Christopher Ball of Woodeaves and Nicholas Ball (to the effect that the Fitzherberts sold Woodeaves to Christopher Ball who was presumably the tenant).

Wirksworth Hundred: Tissington Parish 1846

At Woodeaves, near the Bently Brook, is a cotton mill, worked by a steam engine of 16 horses power, and employing 100 persons.

Western Parliamentary Division: Tissington 1895

Woodeaves is a hamlet on the Ashbourne and Matlock road, three miles N from the former place.  Here is a cotton mill, which gives employment to about 100 hands.  It is fitted up with the best modern machinery, and contains 8,500 spindles.  The special feature of the manufacture is cotton doubling for the lace and curtain thread manufactures of Nottingham and else where.

Ashbourne News 13 October 1899

Ashbourne Petty Sessions (held the previous Saturday). The Woodeaves Company, cotton spinners, were summoned for employing James Burton at night on 24th and 25th August contrary to the Factory and Workshops Acts.  They were also charged with employing William Charter at night on 1st September.  Burton, aged 14 and Collier aged 16 were employed from 5-30 pm to 6-00 am.

The company did not dispute the facts but said these boys did not have to work as hard at night as if they had been employed in the day time.  They would rather be on night work and no coercion had been used.  They had not been engaged in the mill during the day while they were doing night service.  Mr Yates said there had been no complaints during the 20 years he had been manager.

The mill owners had kept 12 adult workers on all night regularly but at the time the new railway was … making it … difficult to find enough men to carry on night work.  They would therefore have had to close the mill at nights or employ these boys and they had chosen the latter course.

The Bench did not think the boys had suffered very much as they had not been worked day and night too.  They imposed a fine of £1 in each case.

The Industrial Archaeology of the Peak District p.113-114

Another cotton mill established at the end of the eighteenth century was Woodeaves Mill, in Tissington parish.  It was built by hosier, John Cooper, in 1784, and was powered in its early days by water from the Bradbourne Brook, brought along a three quarter of a mile long mill leat, termed a ‘canal’, for it was also used for conveying limestone to the mill in small boats.  Later, power was provided by a 16 hp steam engine.  Cotton manufacture, which involved cotton doubling for the lace and curtain trades of Nottingham and else where, continued through the nineteenth century.  A hundred people were employed, some of whom lived in cottages in the mill yard and others at nearby Fenny Bentley.  In 1908 production ceased and within a few years the greater part of the buildings were demolished.  Left standing were the warehouse and engine house which continued in use for various purposes, including that of a cheese factory.  The small portion now remaining is incorporated in a poultry farm while the former manager’s house is a private residence, its surroundings transformed though still showing slight evidence of the former buildings.

Bygone Industries of the Peak: Cheese Making by Julie Bunting - Peak Advertiser, 29th July 1996 p.3

Weekly cheese markets were held at Derby, Ashbourne, Bakewell, Chesterfield, Uttoxeter, and Leek, with annual cheese fairs held in and around the Peak, as at Bakewell, Tideswell and Winster.  Together with oatcake, Derbyshire cheese formed the staple diet of Peakland lead miners.  This was also true of coal miners in neighbouring counties and great quantities of Derbyshire cheese used to be taken to Nottingham Goose Fair every year.

Derbyshire cheese was uncoloured and heavy in texture with a generally mild flavour.  John Byng, later Viscount Torrington, having dined in Ashbourne in 1790, wrote: ‘the cheese of this country pleases me much; being a medium between the Cheshire and the Stilton’.  When it went on sale in London it was often actually passed off as the more expensive Cheshire.

A 1794 report on Derbyshire farming stated that cheese was the ‘chief, if not the only article of provision which the natives can spare out of their own country’.  The Dove Valley, with its good grazing, was particularly good dairying country ...

England’s first purpose built cheese factory is thought to have been established in 1870 at Longford, near Derby.  Within a few years Derby cheese was being produced in factories at Ecton, Reapsmoor, Gratton, Woodeaves, Grangemill, Glutton Bridge and Hartington ...

 

Changing Views on Genealogy

Copyright © 2005 Peter Trewhitt and Sandra DeMaster

Sandra DeMaster joined the Society last summer whilst visiting the area as part of her research into her family history.  Her starting pointed had been research commissioned by her great aunt Helen Martha Beecher (Mrs. Charles Frederick Messenger) in the 1930s. Sandra and her great aunt are descended from an Elizabeth Alsop of the Allsops of Alsop en le Dale who settled in Connecticut not long before 1642/3.  Mrs. Messenger was an active member of a number of organisations including: the International Society of the Daughters of the Barons of Runnemede, the Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution,  Connecticut Daughters of 1812 and the Order of Americans Armorial Ancestry.

The genealogy prepared for Mrs. Messenger was aimed at demonstrating her descent from a signatory of the Magna Carta, presumably any one would do, so that she could become a member of the ‘Society for the Daughters of the Barons of Runnemede’.  In order to achieve this it was necessary to make a number of switches between male and female lines.  The origins of genealogy are in justifying privilege and power.  Historically the genealogist was interested in the nobility and royalty, and this ironically is present in such groups as this aimed at establishing an elite of republicanism and egalitarianism.  There is a further irony in that the Magna Carta, now seen as up holding the rights of the common man, was as much due to a small powerful elite (the Norman Barons) fighting for their personal interests.  The research (see below) was aimed at demonstrating ancestors that settled in America prior to the American War of Independence and ancestors before that who were at least from English gentry.  This approach is not necessarily wrong in itself, although politically it has the risks in that it can be used to justify things that are wrong, and intellectually it tends to focus only on lists of names and dates that tell us little about the lives of our ancestors as whole.

Sandra DeMaster lives within a farming community in Wisconsin and is asking very different questions.  What was the everyday life of her distant ancestors like in Alsop en le Dale?  What prompted Elizabeth Alsop as a young adult to leave Derbyshire in the 1630s with her two brothers?  How did the life of her distant relatives that remained in the area in farming communities relate to the farming communities of her American ancestors? Although it is only possible to trace back family lines beyond the origin of parish registers if you can link into at least a gentry family, increasingly people’s interest in family history is not just the names and the dates.  Rather it can be a way into understanding how our ancestors fitted into society as a whole.

The Allsops are likely to be of Saxon origin and held the manor of Alsop en le Dale from shortly after the Norman Conquest until the late seventeenth century.  The last Allsop of Alsop, prior to Lord Hindlip in the late nineteenth century, is a fairly close relative of Elizabeth.  The Allsops’ younger sons settled in the neighbouring villages from at least the thirteenth century onwards.  We have a lot of information on their role in Parwich as yeomen farmers and husbandmen from the sixteenth century onwards (currently in preparation by the Society is “500+ years of Allsops in Parwich”).  We need to devote as much energy as Mrs. Messenger did to her quest to answer her grand niece’s questions but her research provides us with a good starting point.

England in the 1630s was still ruled by Charles I.  From 1629 for eleven years he tried to govern without Parliament.  Although there were still occasional out breaks of plague (Eyam plague was in 1665/6), the economy was fairly stable.  Farming was slowly changing, as the large medieval open fields were being divided up and some enclosure of common land was taking place, though not on the scale of the late eighteenth century.  Various religious dissenting groups were beginning to emerge (the Pilgrim Fathers went to America in 1620, though Quakerism did not begin to take a hold in the North of England until the 1650s).  The extremes of the Civil War did not begin until later (Charles I was executed in 1649).  We know that Elizabeth’s great grandfather, John Alsop, sheltered the Protestant scholar Thomas Bacon during the reign of the Catholic monarch Mary Tudor (1553 to 1558).  Elizabeth’s father, another John de Alsop, died in 1631.

Sketch of Elizabeth Alsop

(First American Ancestress in this line)

Elizabeth Alsop came to Connecticut early in the seventeenth century with her brothers Timothy and George Alsop.  She was born in Derbyshire, England daughter of John and Temperance Alsop, descended from the ancient family of Alsop-in-the-Dale, in direct line from Hugo de Alsop who went with Richard I to the Holy Land and for his services received the Order of Knighthood.

Soon after her arrival in this country she joined the church in Milford and was there married, the 5th February 1642/3 to Richard Baldwin, Founder of Milford, Ensign of the Military Company for the Expedition Against the Dutch, a man of prominence in the Colony whose name is perpetuated with hers on one of the stones forming the memorial bridge at Milford.

It is through their son Barnabas Baldwin that we derive descent.

After the death of Richard Baldwin, July 22nd, 1655, Elizabeth married Capt. Wm. Fowler, Commissioner of the Colonies who was sent to England to treat with the King (presumably this was Charles II after the Restoration in 1660); who in his will dated October 1682, probate 15th June 1683, pays this affectionate and appreciative tribute to her: “In primis: concerning my deare and loving wife Elizabeth Fowler, my will concerning her and as a    token of my tender affection to her (ye hath been a tender, dutiful and loving wife to me) I say, that my will is (if it should please her to live with my children to be a guide and help to them as a mother and head of a family, I doe much desire that it may be soe.) that she shall have the east end of my dwelling house …”

She only lived a few years to enjoy this bequest, dying in Milford, July 1688.

It is not immediately obvious why the young Elizabeth with her two brothers Timothy and George left Derbyshire, though they must have left relatively soon after the death of their father.  Her older brother, John, remained in England, and though he died not long after Elizabeth’s first marriage, the family in Alsop en le Dale held on to the estate for at least another half century, though finally they were sold by the creditors of the last holder.  When did the family fortunes go into decline, was it over several generations or just in the last few years before the estate was sold?  It was not a time of particular upheaval either religiously or politically given what had gone before and what came after.  She and her brothers chose one the relatively more established American colonies, though it was in relatively close proximity to the then Dutch colony.  On settling in Milford she moved in establishment circles, both her husbands being prominent men, her first husband having founded the town of Milford.  Presumably Elizabeth’s prospects in Derbyshire would have been marriage to a minor country gentleman or yeoman farmer, dependant on the size of her dowry.  Her   brothers as younger sons would have had to make their own way in the world.  I suspect that she and her brothers were economic migrants, seeking the economic opportunities of the growing New England colony, and that this was a reasonably well resourced emigration enabling her to retain the social status she held in England.

The genealogy, prepared for Mrs. Messenger by the New York based genealogist Emma Cairns in 1936, spans some seven hundred years.  The ancestry of Elizabeth Alsop is worth including not only as it illustrates the twists and turns required to reach a Magna Carta signatory, but also as it bears on a number of local families as well as the Allsops.  I have also included her American descendants for general interest.  Each individual is the parent of the following individual, so 1. Robert Fitz-Walter is the father of 2. Sir Walter Fitz-Walter and 4. Ida Fitzwalter is the mother of 5. Joan de la Warde.  (Note: I have left the references in the form given as I have not had time to confirm what the abbreviations stand for, but I have made some minor alterations to the wording to clarify the meaning.)

Researching the history of Parwich families?

We would like to hear from anyone researching the history of any Parwich  families.  We are continuing the ‘A to Z of Nineteenth Century Parwich Families’ in the Newsletter, though as readers will see we are only on the ‘B’s so far.  Having said that we have run a number of articles out of sequence on  individual families written by people researching those families.  We will be producing the first in a possible series of monographs on specific families, on the ‘Allsops’, in the next month or so.  Further we wish to develop on our website a list of researchers and a notice board for queries.  Do get in touch in if you wish to be mentioned on the website or have any information on a Parwich family you wish to share.

The Saint Family

Copyright © 2005 Peter Trewhitt

I recently received a letter containing information on the Saint family, which was of  particular interest to me as they farmed the hill land from Hallcliffe for much of the nineteenth century.  The Saints were at Hallcliffe for two generations, approximately 60 years, as tenants of the Evans family who purchased the Parwich estate in 1815.

Abel Shipley remembers, as a child, his teacher, Mr. Hampson, saying that there used to be a trackway through Hallcliffe and on across what is now Mrs. Shield’s field (also called Hallcliffe).  This field was still attached to Hallcliffe House when it was owned by Miss Lucy Lewis in the early 1900s.  I assume Miss Lewis received the house as part of her mother’s share of the estate inherited by her mother from Sir William Evans.  My deeds only go back to Miss Lewis’ sale of the property.  Miss Lewis lived here with her brother Gerald Lewis until they both moved to Guernsey in 1924.  The gateway into the field is still there behind my wooden shed.  One of the gatepost is of interest as it is a very large and well weathered undressed lump of limestone, now concealed by nettles and blackthorn.  This trackway crossed Kiln Lane and then went on through Bell’s Yard following the route of the current public footpath up the side of the hill.  Presumably this was the route Isaac Saint and his son, William, used to access their land behind the hill.  Given it leads from the centre of the village to the Romano-British settlement at Lombard’s Green, it could be a very ancient trackway.  William Saint died in 1874 and his widow left the village.  The bottom part of the trackway must have gone out of use about this time, when the farmland was made into what is now Hill Top Farm, with the then new farm house being built in the middle of the land it was no longer required as an occupational way.  This continued the trend, following on from the 1791 Enclosure Act, for farmhouses to move out of the centre of the village and to be placed on the land they served.

The Saints may have been responsible for the nineteenth century two storey extension to Hallcliffe, originally this contained the kitchen, store rooms (perhaps previously a cottage) and the wagon shed.  It is possible it was built after William’s death.  This has been altered substantially over the last 100 years and now makes up the drawing room for Hallcliffe House and Hallcliffe Cottage.  An interesting snippet is from the 1841 Census where we have the Saints living at Hallcliffe, to be contrasted with the vicar, the Rev. Sin living at the Hall.  Unfortunately Brian Foden suggests that this is likely to be in error for the Rev. Sim.  Well here is the letter.

Peter Trewhitt

 

Dear Mr. Trewhitt,

I was recently told about your website and was very pleased to see all the information you have on it so far.  About 10 years ago I spent some considerable time researching the family history connected with Parwich, in particular the Saint family, i.e. my great grandparents William and Rebecca Saint, on my mother’s side, and hope to be able to spend more time on this again in the future.  My main research was focused on the parish records, census, and IGI index (the Mormon’s extensive genealogical database), but I was able to compile a reasonably accurate family tree particularly of the families living in Parwich, though this is not in a suitable form to be able to send you, being handwritten on a large piece of wallpaper at the moment!  Should you be interested, the details of this family are roughly as follows: -

Earliest known is Thomas Saint (senior) of Mercaston, who died in 1764, followed more generations of Saints all of Mercaston/Muggington (Mercaston was served by the ancient church at Muggington, so that Mercaston funerals, weddings and baptisms appear in the Muggington records), until we reach my great great grand parents.

Isaac Saint of Muggington/Mercaston and his wife Hannah Bownes from Tupton, Chesterfield (farmers) and their 3 children moved from Muggington to Parwich between 1815 and 1817 where 5 more children were born, including twins Isaac and Emmeline (who died in 1820 and are buried in Parwich churchyard), and sons William and Edward.  In the Census they lived at Hallcliffe as farmers.  On Isaac’s death in 1864 (he is buried in the churchyard, (immediately on your left as you go through the gate) his son William moved back to Parwich from Snelston with his wife Elizabeth … originally from Sheen (don’t know her maiden name but they were married in 1859) and their 3 children, presumably to take over  … the farm ... and 1 more son was born in Parwich.  Then his wife Elizabeth died in 1870 (also buried in the churchyard) aged 34.  Just 3 months later William married his      second wife, Rebecca Saunders from Bagthorpe, Nottinghamshire (my great grandmother), and lived at Church Green (this is still Hallcliffe though not named as such on the 1871  Census, when all the properties about the Green are listed as Church Green) where three more children were born between 1870 and 1874 (the middle child being my grandmother Mary Fanny Saint).  William’s mother, Hannah died in 1871 (buried in churchyard with Isaac her husband) followed by the death in 1873 of 2 of William’s young children by his first wife Elizabeth (also buried in the churchyard).  William then died in 1874 (the corner of the churchyard by the gate must have been very crowded)  and Rebecca and her own 3 young children … moved over to Holme Pierrepont near Radcliffe on Trent, Nottinghamshire, for some reason.  This is where the direct Parwich connection ends.

William’s brother Edward and his family also lived in Parwich at Church Farm (on the 1851 Census Edward was living with his in-laws Joseph and Hannah Kirkham at Church Farm only farming 14 acres himself, but by 1861 he appears to have taken over his late father-in-law’s tenancy of 140 acres; his mother-in-law Hannah was still living with them in 1861) during this time too, but appears to have moved to the Boylestone area after 1861.  There are also other members of the Saint family (not the direct line) in the Longford and Brailsford areas too at this time.

I have most of the dates of baptisms, marriages and deaths etc. that took place in Parwich but have still more research to do when time permits, i.e. through possible sale of the farms involved, tithes paid, and general background details, but I thought the above may be of some use to you.

Following our visit back in 1993, the then Vicar very kindly forwarded me a couple of Parish magazines mentioning the Saints (p.5-7 Sept. 1993 and p.5 Nov. 1993 see also the History Society  Newsletter No. 12 Feb. 2003 p.8-11) which were of great interest to me.  The Eddie mentioned is the grandson of Robert Edward Saint (one of the sons of William and Elizabeth) and therefore the great great grandson of Isaac Saint.

I had a quick look on the website, at the Census returns … To be able to view the returns so easily … is wonderful, and I am pleased you have been able to do this.  I hope to be able to discover what other interesting information is available before too long—I just need the time.

Yours sincerely Margaret Rostron

 

 

The 8 Post Cards

The Society printed a thousand sets of eight photographs from the early twentieth century as post cards just over a year ago.  The idea had been to use them as fund raising, but after an initial rush and some sales through the shop they have been going very slowly.  So far the income has been £338, which given the printing cost of £586, has been very disappointing.  Recently the Committee has decided to halve the retail price to £1 per set in order to try and boost sales, but they would also welcome any ideas on promoting them further.

We are using the cards for the School’s ‘Posted’ project, which is part of our Celebration of Rural Life, and I drafted the following notes on the pictures for the School and the ‘Parwich Voices’ website.  We have included these notes here partly for general interest and partly to encourage further sales. Editor.

Main Street

This picture of the Main Street in Parwich, looking towards the church, was taken in the 1920s.  It has changed little since then.  The main change is the demolition of the Parwich Church Institute, the corrugated iron building on the right hand side of the picture.  The Institute was an old army building brought here after the First World War.  It served as church hall and village hall.  A large cast iron stove that got very hot heated it.  The children went to Sunday school here, and there were dances and social clubs here.  It was demolished in 1963 when the new Memorial Hall was built.  Recently the community decided it wanted to replace the Memorial Hall with a new village hall and funding is being sought for this.

The street light just in the right of the picture was a carbide gas lamp.  The carbide gas was made in the small stone shed on the right of the picture between the Institute and the cart shed.  This gas also powered lights in the church and Parwich Hall, as well as several other streetlights.  The streetlights are now powered by electricity.

Parwich School

The School, pictured here around 1900, was built in 1861 by Sir William Evans.  His father bought the Parwich estate in 1814, which included the Hall and most of the houses and farms in the parish.  The Evans family were wealthy bankers and industrialists based in Derby.  They lived at Darley Abbey, a very grand house north of Derby.  The Evans family never lived in Parwich and they used Parwich Hall as the Vicarage.  The family had built a number of schools and churches in villages they owned across Derbyshire.

This was not the first school in Parwich.  There were a number of small schools in private houses at different times in the village.  Also the present School replaced an earlier one established by Sir William’s father in the Hall coach house and stables.

From the outside the School has not changed a lot, except that it is rare to see it without lots of cars parked in front of it.  The School continued in private ownership until 1918 when the Rev Claud Lewis, a descendant of the Evans family, sold it to the County Council.  Originally half of the building was a house for the head teacher, but later this was included as part of the School.  A new classroom was built on the back in 2003.

Parwich Primary School serves Parwich and the surrounding farms and hamlets.  Children attend the School from the age of 4 years to 11 years, when they go to Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Ashbourne, the market town some 7 miles away.

St Peter’s Church

There has been a church here for at least a thousand years.  All that remains of the original church is a very old carved stone above the west door.  The old Norman church was demolished in 1873.  A new vicar, Rev Leighton Buckwell, who came to Parwich in 1870, complained that the old church was too small and in bad repair.  He persuaded Sir William Evans to pay to have the present church built.  As the Evans family had never lived in Parwich and had no ancestors buried in the church, they had no sentimental attachment to the old building.  Not all the villagers were happy to see the old church go.

This view has changed little since this photograph was taken.  The shed on the right is now gone.  It was a hardware shop run by Mr Wright Greatorex who lived at the Fold.  In the early 1900s Parwich had about 8 shops, now there is only one.  Then you could buy virtually every thing you needed in the village, now most people shop in Ashbourne, or in Derby.

When this church was opened in 1874, nearly everyone in the village would have gone to either the church or the Methodist chapel.  Not so many people go to church now.  Now the church is too big except for weddings and funerals, and the chapel does not have a service every Sunday.

A Village Gathering

Pictured here are around 200 of the inhabitants of Parwich.  There would have been around 500 people living in the parish when this photograph was taken, about the same number as today.  What is different is the large number of children, about 90 in this photograph.  There are not so many children now.

It is thought that this picture was taken during the celebrations for the coronation of King George V in 1911.  Dr Combes when compiling the book “The Spirit of Parwich” thought that a number of people in this photograph were also in other photographs known to be of the coronation celebrations wearing the same clothes.  The people are standing on the Green in front of Hallcliffe House, which was then the home of Gerald Lewis.

Parwich Creamery

This building was built in the 1600s as an important farmhouse, and it used to be called Old Hall, this is confusing as it is newer than Parwich Hall, which was first built in the 1550s.  However Parwich Hall was substantially rebuilt in 1747.  Around 1900 Gerald Lewis set up a cheese factory or creamery here.  Gerald Lewis’ mother inherited Parwich Hall from her uncle, Sir William Evans, and also his brother Claud Lewis became vicar in Parwich.  The creamery won prizes for its cheese that was sold through a shop in Ashbourne called the Parwich Dairy.  Wine and jam were also made here from the fruit Gerald Lewis grew on his market garden.

Several hundred yards away near Littlewood Farm are some brick built pigsties.  A pipe ran underground from the Creamery to these pigsties so that the whey left over from making the cheese could be fed to the pigs. One reason that the Creamery was sited here was access to good water.  There is still a well that can be seen in Creamery Lane, and Gerald Lewis had a borehole dug so that he could pump up fresh water.  This water then supplied the factory and Gerald Lewis’ house Hallcliffe.  When the Hospital (now Rathborne Hall) was built it also got its water from Gerald’s borehole. Creamery Lane took its name from the factory, which closed in the early 1920s.  It then became a private house and is now known as Knob Hall.

Preparing to Plant Cabbages

The men in the photograph, taken about 1910 are getting ready to plant cabbages in the market garden in Monsdale Lane.  The land here should be fertile, as it was part of Parwich’s medieval open field system.  Parwich had had four large open fields where the villagers had strips for growing crops.  These huge fields would have been gradually divided up sometime in the 1500, 1600 or 1700 hundreds.  Around 1900 Gerald Lewis set up a market garden here with fruit trees, soft fruit bushes and vegetables.  He sold the produce locally from the barn in the picture and in Ashbourne, and he had the fruit preserved or turned into jam or wine at the creamery.

The men in the picture are thought to be (from left to right) Maurice Brownlee, Alfred Ernest Brownlee (junior), Alfred Ernest Brownlee (senior), Jim Lees and John Heathcote.  In between Jim Lees and John Heathcote is a scarecrow with an interesting story.  In 1910 there was no village hall and the school still belonged to the Lewis family.  The Rev. Claud Lewis was vicar and he managed the family property in Parwich.  The villagers wanted to use the school for their celebration of the coronation of King George V the following year.  The Rev Lewis was not a popular man to start with and when he refused to allow the school to be used for a ‘party’ people got very angry.  They dressed the scarecrow up to look like the vicar and set fire to it on the Green when the Rev Lewis came out of church.

It is possible that Gerald knew his scarecrow was being dressed up as his brother, as he was said to have been fond of practical jokes.  The Rev Lewis gave up being vicar that year and later moved to Wales.  Perhaps this made Gerald Lewis realise the importance of having a village hall, as he gave the land on which the Parwich Institute was to be built.  The market garden was in a frost pocket, and in the spring on cold nights they used to light bonfires to try and stop the frost damaging the flowers on the fruit trees.  This must have been hard work, and in the 1920s travelling shops started to come to Parwich and the bus service to Ashbourne began.  This meant that people could get a better selection of cheaper vegetables outside the village.  Gerald Lewis sold the market garden in the early 1920s, and the people who bought it failed to make a go of it.

A few of Gerald Lewis’ apple trees remain and recently the owner of the land has planted more under the Countryside Stewardship Scheme.

This picture was taken in 1917.  The ‘musicians’ are the builders working on the new vicarage.  It seems strange that they would be building a new house during the war, but when the Lewis family sold up the Parwich estate the Hall could no longer be used as the vicarage.  A firm of builders from Ashbourne was employed to build the house, which must have seemed very modern indeed when it was first built.

Lord’s Joinery

This picture was taken on the green by the Dam (the village pond) near where the play area is now.  The old building in the background was a house in the 1800s, but it became a joiner’s workshop in the early 1900s.  Mr Lord, the joiner, lived at Ivy Cottage on the Green.  The two-storey part was demolished sometime in the first half of the 1900s, but the single storey part on the right continued as a blacksmith’s workshop until it was demolished in the 1970s to make way for the flats and houses in Smithy Close.

A letter to REAP from a participant illustrates how successfully these workshops are going:

“As a visitor I must write to thank and praise REAP and their associates for the Parwich event on Saturday.  The exhibition appeared to be an outstanding success.  It seemed like the whole world  turned out to view the displayed artworks.  It was a joy to watch the interaction between the visitors and participating artists, tutors and REAP staff.  With immense patience, the tutors answered repetitive questions from visitors, with the same enthusiasm they had engendered in the students.  It was fascinating to overhear the conversations that buzzed around the hall during the two hours I enjoyed at the exhibition.

Also by coincidence, at the exhibition, my wife met an acquaintance (Dorothy Littlewood) she had known through High Tor Players at Matlock.  The acquaintance had on display a pencil drawing of her sister which she had finished 64 years ago! As a bonus, she was prompted to relate tales of her and her sister’s separation in exile in Lancashire as children, evacuees during WW2.

As you may remember I was able to attend two of the ‘Kitchen art’ days, invited by a resident of Parwich to come down from the hills and participate:

Relics: Eileen Coult was faced with students of wide ranging expertise—from a studio potter to some of us who had never touched a piece of clay in our entire lives.  Her explanation of her own interest in relics and methods for using porcelain slip to create them, had us all chomping at the bit to get started.  With considerable delight the village hall was soon transformed by dozens of artworks dripping on improvised drying lines.  The time available was too short.  Many said they would like to pursue further projects using their new found knowledge.  Further dedication by Eileen ensured the firing of all the objects.  A subsequent meeting of all the participants bubbled with excitement when the kiln was opened.  The unusual and interesting nature of the relics in the display at the exhibition was a self explanatory outcome.  What a joy, the ‘Relics’ day kindled new interests and understanding.

Celebration of Place: What a privilege to enjoy the tutorship and encouragement from a very capable artist and photographer, Andrew Robinson (Buxton based photographer).  He fulfilled the needs and demands of everybody on the day with great ease, whatever their photographic interest or level of experience.  The individual participants varied in their experience from, never having handled or understood the operation of a digital camera, to half a century of diverse photographic activity.  Everyone left after the initial briefing like children about to experience a summer holiday, released into the village to enjoy an afternoon recording their own perception of Parwich—the place.  The results displayed on Saturday, with such professionalism in their layout and juxtaposition, were minutely examined by all visitors.  Much discussion occurred about the individual photographers’  insights and the images themselves.  The character of the individual photographers came through so strongly in the image groups.  What a pity that the tutor Andrew didn’t include his own images of Parwich.

So—the Parwich events broadened my connections and fortified my relationship with some Parwich residents; renewed and shared my longstanding interest in photographic art; discovered the joy of making an object; met new people and made acquaintances in a Peakland village I hadn’t been to for over 30 years; caused me to review my own artistic pursuits and plan further work…”

Donation to the Society

The Society recently received a donation.  We feel it worth including here:-

Dear Mr. Radcliffe (Treasurer),

Please find enclosed a cheque for £50.  The money is to acknowledge the pleasure that our mother Ella Hopkinson gained from her association with the society over several years.

We felt that we would like to make a donation to your fund in the hope that you might be able to put it to good use.  Our parents could not be considered rich but they counted their wealth in the friends that they had and the enjoyment they gained from being part of the village community of Parwich.

Mum was always able to tell us of the latest work you were doing to discover more about the village and former residents and the surrounding area.  We were each very appreciative to receive copies of “Voices: Women of a White Peak Village” and pleased that mum was able to play her part in providing you with some information.  We know she gained a lot of pleasure from her involvement with the Society.  We therefore felt it appropriate to forward a donation to you, small though it be we hope that in some way it will help the Society to continue.

Yours sincerely, David Hopkinson and John Hopkinson

 

Unfortunately Ella did not live to see “Voices” in its final form.  The Committee feel that we should use this donation towards a specific identified project rather than it be just absorbed into our general expenses, so we have delayed making any decision until the Society set its objectives for the next year or so at the AGM.
