"CHADDESDEN is a parish (having no dependent township), in the hundred of Appletree but locally situate in that of Morleston and Litchurch, two miles and a half east from Derby. The church, which is dedicated to St. Mary, is of considerable antiquity, having a stone stall in its chancel; the living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of Sir Robert Wilmot. The Derby canal passes through the parish,- which contained, at the last census (1831), 469 inhabitants, for being fewer, by thirty-three, than were returned for it in 1801."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
