"ELMTON, a parish, in the same hundred as Bolsover is about 3 Miles N.E. from that town. This was the birth-place of Jedediah Buxton, the great arithmetic calculator. The church here, is dedicated to St. Peter: the living is a discharged vicarage, in the patronage of the Rev. C. H. R. Rodes. The parish contained in 1821, 352 inhabitants, and at the last census (1831) the number had decreased to 340."
