Hathersage - by Daniel and Samuel Lysons, 1817

Transcription by Barbarann AYARS © 2000
HATHERSAGE, in the hundred and deanery of High-Peak, lies about eight miles from Tideswell, and about five from Stony-Middleton, where is a post office. The parish contains the townships of Hathersage, Bamford, Outseats, and Netherpadley; and the chapelries of Derwent and Stony-Middleton. The manor of Hathersage (Hereseige) was, at the time of taking the Domesday Survey, the property of Ralph Fitzhubert. In the reign of Henry III it belonged to the family of De Hathersage, whose coheiresses brought it to Goushill and Longford. In the reign of Henry V, this manor, or rather, perhaps Goushil's moiety, belonged to the family of Thorp, with remainder to Robert Eyre, and his heirs. Sir Nicholas Longford died seised of the other moiety in 1481. The manor of Hathersage is now the property of the Duke of Devonshire, whose ancestor purchased it in 1705 of the family of Pegge.

In the parish church are monuments of the family of Eyre[1] and some memorials also for that of Ashton.
