Awsworth

"Awsworth township and chapelry borders upon Derbyshire, and has a small village on the Nottingham Canal, 2½ miles west of Nuthall. The Earl of Stamford is lord of the manor, and principal owner of the land. The chapel was consecrated about 1760, and is a curact endowed with about £50 a year. The Earl of Stamford is the patron, and the Rev. S.M. Lund is the incumbent, for whom the Rev. Wm. Clementson M.A. officiates, who resides in a neat mansion erected in 1843. It is situated on an eminence, and commands a fine view of the Derbyshire and Leicestershire hills. The chapelry is entitled to send one poor person to Ilkeston almshouses, and to receive £5 yearly from the funds of Smedley's charity, for teaching 18 poor children. The Earl of Stamford is trustee."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
