Volume III 1506-1589
Eckington lies in
Derbyshire almost equidistant from Sheffield to the north-west
and Chesterfield in the south-west.
Recorded in the Domesday
Book as Eckintune, the ancient parish and Manor includes Mosborough,
Bramley, Plumbley, Renishaw, Spinkhill and Troway. Many of the
records of the Manor Court have survived from the mid-14C onwards
and are mostly in the possession of of the descendants of the
last Lords of the Manor.
This is the first
time these records have been made available for study and it
is intended that this volume shall be followed by three further
volumes each dealing with a separate century.
