St Peter's Church at Old Brampton should not be confused with St. Thomas's Church at what is now known as New Brampton. St. Thomas's was consecrated in 1832, and "stands on the Chatsworth road, about a mile west of the town of Chesterfield." [Ref: Samuel LEWIS's Topographical Dictionary of England, 1848]
There is a wealth of "Parish Chest" type information available for (Old) Brampton at the Derbyshire Record Office, but there are no Settlement Certificates! There are however, plenty of lists of charitable bequests, one of which cites money to be put forth for Apprenticeship Indentures bequeathed to the Church Wardens in ? Shawe's Will. There is also a Burials Waste Book which lists the position of each grave in chronological order with index for years 1792-1887 - a very important resource, as it suggests relationships in terms of who was buried next to whom. There are also Tithe Books giving names of occupiers of land, rent paid and livestock belonging to each farmer for years 1815 & 1818. All are available in original form. My grateful thanks to Janet Kirk for this information.
