Parish History

DERBY, a borough and market-town, possessing separate jurisdiction, and the head of a union, locally in the hundred of Morleston and Litchurch, S. division of the county of Derby, of which it is the capital, 16 miles west from Nottingham, 27 miles northwest from Leicester, and on the high road to Manchester, and, including parts of certain parishes which extend beyond the limits of the borough. The town comprises the parishes, chapels and chapelries of:

There are places of worship for General and Particular Baptists, the Society of Friends, Independents, Wesleyans (New and Old Connexion), New Jerusalemite, Presbyterian, Swedenborgians, and Unitarians; and a Roman Catholic chapel, erected in 1839. The Roman Catholics have also built a handsome structure as a residence for the Sisters of Mercy, and for a chapel and schools. A general cemetery was opened in 1843.

The union workhouse is situated in Litchurch, in that portion of the parish of St.Peter which is without the borough. Remains of St. Mary's chapel, supposed to have been the church of St Mary given by William the Conqueror to the abbey of Burton, still exist: the chapel, in the time of Charles II., was used by the Presbyterians, but was subsequently converted into small tenements.[1]
