"SUDBURY is a parish, containing a small and neat village, in the same hundred as the preceeding parishes; the village being situate 13 miles W. by S. from Derby, and 4 E. by S. from Doveridge. To the north-east of the village is Sudbury hall and park, the fine seat of Lord Vernon. The church, which is very old, stands in the garden near the hall, and being covered with ivy, presents a picturesque ornament in the scenery around it."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
The 3,546 acres of the parish have been mostly pasturage.
