[Lyson's Magna Britannia Vol 5: Derbyshire, page 185]
STOKE: The manor of Stoke was sold, in or about the year 1473 by Henry, Lord Grey, of Codnor to Robert Barley, Esq., of a younger branch of the Barleys of Barlow, whose posterity resided at Stoke for several generations. In the reign of Charles I it was one of the manors of William Cavendish, Earl of Newcastle. Jacinth Sacheverell was Lord of the manor of Stoke in 1656. It is now the property of the Honourable John Simpson, second son of the Right Honourable Lord Bradford, whose father, the first Lord Bradford, acquired it in marriage with the heiress of Simpson. Stoke-hall is in the occupation of Robert Arkwright, Esq.
