TitleThe Bagshawe of Oakes Records: Volume Two (Part Two)
AdminHistoryWilliam Bagshawe of Abney, Litton and Hucklow Hall purchased Ford Hall in Chapel-en-le-Frith sometime subsequently to 1648. He died in 1669 and left four sons: William of Ford Hall (the Apostle of the Peak), John of Hucklow Hall. Adam of Wormhill Hall and Robert. It is from Adam and his second son Richard that the Bagshawes of the Oakes descend. Their marriages brought the considerable property. Adam's wife was Alice, daughter of Richard Torr of Castleton, who left his estates to his grandson Richard Bagshawe; Richard married Elizabeth Gill, through whom property at Barnoldswick in Craven was eventually inherited. The three sons of the next generation died without issue and the property eventually passed to the grandson of Ellen Bagshawe, William Chambers Darling, a Hull doctor, who took the name Bagshawe and resided at the Oakes.
DescriptionThe records listed here consist entirely of property deeds from the 17th century onwards. They relate to the family estates in the High Peak district of Derbyshire (including Castleton, Hope, Wormhill); Scarsdale in Derbyshire (Norton and elsewhere); and in Barnoldswick, Earby and elsewhere in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
