LONGSTONE, Derbyshire


THORNHILL, Robert - Longstone Notes. Edited by M L STUART and published by Longstone Local History Group, 1992.
Robert THORNHILL was born in 1892. He always had a keen interest in local and family history, and on his death, in 1973, the archives and papers he'd collected during his lifetime were presented to the Derbyshire Record Office. This publication reproduces his "Notes on Longstone Church, Village and People"; with two Appendixes. The first Appendix is a summary of the Will of the author's great grandfather, another Robert Thornhill who died in 1820; the second Appendix lists a selection of Robert Thornhill's other publications - mainly articles in Derbyshire Miscellany, the bulletin of the Local History Section of the Derbyshire Archaeological Society.

Note: This may be out of print, but Local Libraries in Derbyshire should have copies. Rosemary Lockie's copy is a slim A5-size booklet with a blue cover.

Description and Travel

To my mind, at least, LONGSTONE tends to be synonymous with Great Longstone [Rosmary LOCKIE, 2010].
