Burton Joyce (or Burton Jorce)

"Burton Joyce, anciently called Burton Jorz, from a distinguised family of that name, who were owners till the reign of Henry VIII. It is a pleasant, well-built village on the Southwell Road, six miles north-east by east of Nottingham, sheltered on the north by a range of lofty hills, which bound the vale of the Trent. Its parish includes the small chapelry of Bulcote.
Burton Joyce is mostly the property of the Earl of Chesterfield, but R.W. Padley Esq. and Thomas Wilson M.D. have estates here. It contains 690 inhabitants and upwards of 1,000 acres of land, enclosed in 1770, when allotments were made in lieu of the tithes. The Earl is also lord of the manor, impropriator, and patron of the vicarage, which is valued in the King's books at £4 19s 2d, now £145, and has 70 acres of glebe, exclusive of land at Lowdham, purchased with Queen Anne's Bounty. The Rev. John Rolleston M.A. is the incumbent."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
