WIRKSWORTH Parish Records 1600-1900
For Frank Dunn.
Here are 3 pages scanned from "Placenames of Derbyshire" by Cameron,
covering Ashbourne parish in the Wirksworth Hundred, pages 341-343,
Volume 2. This work is the Bible for looking up placenames in
old Parish registers. Many references are given, don't think you
will need them but I will supply if necessary. I suggest you memorise
the whole lot, failing that keep your own notes of places you come
across with strange abbreviations.
If you don't already have it, its worth buying yourself "Street Atlas
of Derbyshire" by OS/Philips ISBN 0-540-07531-0 price £12.99. This
marvellous work shows all parishes in Derbyshire, with modern
street/place/field names, which will help you greatly in transcribing.
Get back to me on if you have any queries.
Remind me to remove this page when you've finished with it.
