"HARTINGTON, a parish in the hundred of Wirksworth, county Derby, 7 miles S.W. of Bakewell. The parish, which is very extensive, is divided into the Town, Middle, Nether, and Upper Quarters, with the townships of Biggin and Earl-Sterndale. It is situated near the river Dove, and the Cromford and High Peak railway passes on the E., at the distance of about 3 miles. The village, which was formerly a market town under the Ferrers, who held the castle, is still very considerable. In the reign of Charles I., it became the property of the Villiers family."
