Derbyshire Place-name Index

This Index covers the WHOLE of the county of Derbyshire, and lists 7,000 Wapentakes, Hundreds, Parishes, Towns, Villages, Hamlets, Homesteads, Farms, Woods, Moors, Rivers and Brooks. Each Placename has the Parish and Hundred it lies in. The Ordnance Survey reference of each Parish is given. A Map of Derbyshire helps locate each parish.

The author holds the Derbyshire Place-name Index on database, and searches can be run for part names. If you are confronted with a Derbyshire placename of which you can only read part, email the details to the author on , and I will try to track down the full name. For example, a name containing "dst" and ending in "k" is tracked down as "Woodstock", and I can give you the location as well, in this case being "on the 6 inch OS map of Wirksworth parish". I will also attempt to discover the location of place-names now lost. If you find any Errors, or would like to see any Additions, contact John Palmer.
