Description and Travel

"STAPENHILL is a parish, in the hundred of Repton and Gresley; the village being about 2 miles S.W. from Burton-upon-Trent. The parish, in which are coal mines, is bounded on the west by the river Trent. The church is dedicated to St. Peter: the living is a discharged vicarage, in the gift of the Marquess of Anglesey; the incumbent is the Rev. Henry Des Voeux, and his curate the Rev. Joseph Clay. A charity school has been erected by the last-named rev. gentleman, and is supported by his munificence, and that of the Miss Clays'. The parish contained, in 1831, 1,926 inhabitants, & the township 572 of that number."

[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]

Stapenhill had a ferry across the Trent River.
