TitleBagshawe Family of 'The Oakes' in Norton, Sheffield [formerly Derbyshire] (Oakes Deeds)
AdminHistoryIn 1681 Henry Gill, a younger son of Edward Gill of Carr House, Greasbrough, Rotherham, and Elizabeth Westby, purchased the Oakes. His eldest daughter, Elizabeth, eventually his sole heiress, married in 1699 Richard Bagshawe, second son of Adam Bagshawe of Wormhill, Derbyshire, a younger brother of William Bagshawe of Ford Hall (the Apostle of the Peak). The Oakes was, after the death of Henry Gill, the chief seat of Richard Bagshawe and his descendants, though Wormhill Hall also eventually came to him.

Three sons of Richard Bagshawe and Elizabeth Gill - Richard, William and John - held the Oakes estates in succession. When the last of the three brothers died in 1791 the estate was left to a Bagshawe cousin in the male line, John Bagshawe of the Ford Hall family. At his death, unmarried, in 1801, it was inherited by a Hull doctor, William Chambers Darling, grandson of Ellen, one of the daughters of Richard Bagshawe and Elizabeth Gill. As Sir William Chambers Bagshawe, he became well-known as a local personality and carried out many alterations at the Oakes. He and his son William John Bagshawe both had large families and their descendants continued to reside at the Oakes until the 1980s.

The records listed in this first part comprise the second deposit received from the Oakes-in-Norton, near Sheffield. They were received into custody during 1964.

A previous deposit, received in 1960, had already been catalogued and a N.R.A. catalogue circulated. The earlier deposit consisted, however, of the later deeds, and that catalogue should now be called volume 2 (part 2).

Scope and Content
As both sides of the family were descended from younger sons, records of either before the time of Henry Gill are not very numerous.

There are some early Wormhill deeds, including several relating to a forestership in the Peak. Deeds to the Oakes from the reign of Elizabeth are also here. Some documents relate to Henry Westby, the Parliamentary captain. There are also deeds of the Banester and Drake families of Barnoldswick; the Drake estate was inherited by William Bagshawe of the Oakes.
