Parish

Bakewell

. Transcription by Barbarann Ayars © 2001
[Lyson's Magna Britannia Vol 5: Derbyshire, page 23-41: BAKEWELL]
The extensive parish of Bakewell comprises the township of that name; the townships of Blackwall , Brushfield, Calver, Curbar, Flagg, Froggatt, Over- and Nether-Haddon , Harthill, Hassop , Little-Longstone (or Longsdon), Rowland, Great Rowsley, and part of Wardlow; besides the parochial chapelries of Ashford , Baslow , Beeley , Buxton , Chelmorton , Great Longstone , Monyash , Sheldon and Taddington .

Bakewell is a small market town situated twenty-six miles from Derby, fifteen from Chesterfield, and one hundred and fifty-two from London. The first mention we find of this town is in the reign of Edward the Elder, who, as we are told in the Saxon Chronicle, marched with his army in the year 924 from Nottingham to Badecanwillan, and then commanded a castle to be built in its neighbourhood, and garrisoned. This place evidently derives its name from a mineral spring and an ancient bath, which probably, as well as that of Buxton, was known to the Romans: the name is written Badequelle in the Domesday survey, and was soon afterwards further corrupted to Bauquelle.

It appears by the quo warranto roll, that in the year 1330, John Gernon claimed a market on Monday, at Bakewell; a fair for three days at the festival of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and another for fifteen days beginning on the vigil of St. Philip and St. James. The last-mentioned fair had been granted in 1251, to William Gernon. A small market for butchers' meat etc is now held on Friday; there are now six fairs; Easter Monday, Whit-Monday, August 26th, Monday after October 11th, and Monday after old Martinmas day, for horses, cattle etc. There are also three fairs or great markets, annually, but not at fixed periods, for the sale of fat cattle only.

The township of Bakewell contained in 1801, 280 inhabited houses, and 1412 inhabitants; in 1811, 286 houses, and 1485 inhabitants, according to the returns made to the parliament of those periods.
