- The ancient parish of Brampton was divided in 1832 into the area centred on the old parish church of St Peter and St Paul, now more commonly known as Old Brampton, and New Brampton, served by St Thomas's church, newly consecrated that year. Today, paradoxically, New Brampton, probably as a consequence of being closer to the centre of Chesterfield, having a larger population, and consequently in the forefront of more people's consciousness is known colloquially as simply 'Brampton'.
