PARISHES in Derbyshire

Before about 1900 there were 327 parishes in Derbyshire, each with its own church and Parish Registers. Since then, a few have disappeared, parts have been transferred to other parishes, and some parishes have moved to neighbouring counties. Each parish contains villages, hamlets, and many field names. Parishes vary greatly in area and population
