History of Hayfield

Hayfield is in Derbyshire.

In 1565 Thomas Waterhouse of Haslehurst 1565-1625 was born to Thomas Waterhouse of Hasselhurst 1535-1576 (30) at Hayfield.

In 1625 Thomas Waterhouse of Haslehurst 1565-1625 (60) died at Hayfield.

On or before 28 Jan 1719 Robert Slack 1719-1803 was born to Robert Slack of Little Hayfield -1731 and Dorothy Yeavley. He was baptised 28 Jan 1719 at Hayfield.

15 Sep 1721. John Clegg's Diary. “They broke out in Kinder where two young men [Thomas Gee 1701-1721 (20) and Francis Gee 1704-1721 (17)], sons of Francis Gee (69) were carried off by them. Shortly after John BOOTH and his wife and one child died of that disease. A little after the family of John FROGGAT of Park Hall was visited and his eldest son John (a youth of great hopes) died and about 30 others in and about Heafield, most of the families that were afflicted with them were broken.” Extract: The diary of James CLEGG Part 1, page 15, formerly published by the Derbyshire Record Society.

In 1740 John Waterhouse 1740- was born to John Waterhouse 1725-1796 (15) at Hayfield.

The Journal of the Reverend John Wesley 1748. 23 Jul 1748. On Saturday, the 23d of July last, there fell for about three hours, in and about Hayfield in Derbyshire, a very heavy rain, which caused such a flood as had not been seen by any now living in those parts. The rocks were loosened from the mountains : one field was covered with huge stones from side to side. Several water-mills were clean swept away, without leaving any remains. The trees were torn up by the roots, and whirled away like stubble. Two women of a loose character were swept away from their own door and drowned : one of them was found near the place ; the other was carried seven or eight miles. Hayfield church-yard was all torn up, and the dead bodies swept out of their graves. When the flood abated, they were found in several places. Some were hanging on trees ; others left in meadows or grounds ; some partly eaten by dogs, or wanting one or more of their members.

Around 1754 Robert Slack of Little Hayfield 1754-1822 was born to Robert Slack 1719-1803 (34) and Ann Pickford at Hayfield.

The Journal of the Reverend John Wesley 1755. 08 Apr 1755. Tues. 8. I had designed to go straight on to Hayfield : but one from Ashbourn pressed me much to call there; which accordingly I did at seven in the morning, and preached to a deeply serious congregation. Seventeen or eighteen then desired to join in a Society, to whom I spoke severally, and was well pleased to find that near half of them knew the pardoning love of God. One of the first I spoke to was Miss Berisford, — a sweet, but short-lived flower!

Through much hail, rain, and wind, we got to Mr. B 's, at Hayfield, about five in the afternoon. His favourite daughter died some hours before we came ; such a child as is scarce heard of in a century. All the family informed me of many remarkable circumstances, which else would have seemed incredible. She spake exceeding plain, yet very seldom ; and then only a few words. She was scarce ever seen to laugh, or heard to utter a light or trifling word : she could not bear any that did, nor any one who behaved in a light or unserious manner. If any such offered to kiss or touch her, she would turn away and say, " I don't like you." If her brother or sisters spoke angrily to each other, or behaved triflingly, she either sharply reproved, (when that seemed needful,) or tenderly entreated them to give over. If she had spoke too sharply to any, she would humble herself to them, and not rest till they had forgiven her. After her health declined, she was particularly pleased with hearing that hymn sung: "Abba, Father;" and would be frequently singing that line herself, " Abba, Father, hear me cry."

The Journal of the Reverend John Wesley 1755. 10 Apr 1755. Thur. 10. I rode to Hayfield again, to bury Mr. B 's child. Abundance of people were gathered together, and I found uncommon liberty in preaching. Who would have looked for such a congregation as this, in the Peak of Derbyshire?

I returned to Manchester the next day, and had a quiet congregation both that evening and the following.

The Journal of the Reverend John Wesley 1755. 13 Apr 1755. Sun. 13. I met the Society at five, and showed them wherein I feared they had grieved the Spirit of God, and provoked him to deliver them to be thus outraged by the beasts of the people. I then rode to Hayfield once more, where Mr. B read prayers, and preached a solemn and affecting sermon, relative to the late providence. In the afternoon, I again found great liberty of spirit, in applying those awful words : " What is a man profited if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? "

The Journal of the Reverend John Wesley 1755. 04 May 1757. Wed. 4. I rode over to Hayfield, and preached, at one, in the church, to a congregation gathered from all parts.

On or before 12 Apr 1786 Sarah Slack 1786-1849 was born to Robert Slack. She was baptised on 23 Apr 1786 at Hayfield.

Around 1819 Elizabeth Lomas 1819-1900 was born at Hayfield.

Around 1828 Joseph Hyde 1828- was born at Hayfield.

On 08 Apr 1846 Thomas Waterhouse 1786-1846 (60) died at Hayfield.

On 19 Oct 1848 Margaret Kershaw 1810-1848 (38) died. She was buried on 23 Oct 1848 at Hayfield.

On 18 Aug 1851 Robert Slack 1782-1851 (69) died at Hayfield..

In 1871 Daniel Haigh 1806-1871 (65) died. at Hayfield.

In Jul 1880 Alice Haigh 1880-1916 was born to George Haigh 1841- (39) and Ellen Whittle 1842- (38) at Hayfield.

On 26 Jun 1881 John Hadfield 1860- (21) and Hannah Redford 1860- (21) were married. He was recorded as a Carder, she as a Card? Hand. Both were resident at Hayfield. They were married at St Matthew's Church.

Bank Vale, Hayfield, Derbyshire

The Street is a Roman Road that travels broadly south from Melandra aka Ardotalia to Wirksworth where it joined another road which crossed the Derwent at Milford and ran on the east bank of the Derwent and to Derventio aka Derby.

For the early stages of the road information had been obtained from P. Wroe and P. Mellor (1971). "A Roman Road between Buxton and Melandra Castle, Glossop (Derbyshire Archaeological Journal 1971, Volume 91).

From Melandra aka Ardotalia the road heads broadly south through Simmondley, Higher Plainsteads Farm, Abbots Chair, Brookhouses, through Little Hayfield, Bank Vale. In Hayfield it appears to have followed Kinder Road until it reached Spring Vale Road where it could cross the River Sett where the steep river cliff has ended. It continued more or less straight past Highgate Head Farm, Peep o Day following the A624 until East Meats where it heads towards Gorsty Low then Breckend and Townend

Peep o Day, Hayfield, Derbyshire

The Street is a Roman Road that travels broadly south from Melandra aka Ardotalia to Wirksworth where it joined another road which crossed the Derwent at Milford and ran on the east bank of the Derwent and to Derventio aka Derby.

For the early stages of the road information had been obtained from P. Wroe and P. Mellor (1971). "A Roman Road between Buxton and Melandra Castle, Glossop (Derbyshire Archaeological Journal 1971, Volume 91).

From Melandra aka Ardotalia the road heads broadly south through Simmondley, Higher Plainsteads Farm, Abbots Chair, Brookhouses, through Little Hayfield, Bank Vale. In Hayfield it appears to have followed Kinder Road until it reached Spring Vale Road where it could cross the River Sett where the steep river cliff has ended. It continued more or less straight past Highgate Head Farm, Peep o Day following the A624 until East Meats where it heads towards Gorsty Low then Breckend and Townend

Spring Vale Road, Hayfield, Derbyshire

03 Jul 1942. Two German bombers returning from an unsuccessful trip to bomb Bolton dropped their bombs along the Sett Valley. Three stone cottages on Spring Vale Road were destroyed by German bombers. There were six fatalities: Albert and Edith Gibson, their two daughters Gladys and Margaret, together with Hannah Robinson, and Freda Thorpe, a ten-year-old evacuee from Manchester. Freda’s two brothers and grandmother survived. Leaving Hayfield devastated, the planes climbed over Kinder Scout, veered to the south-east and re-established their heading towards Holland. As they passed Stoney Middleton, they dropped the last of their bombs at Darlton Quarry before strafing Chatsworth House as they made good their escape. At Chatsworth House the roof, north and west side of the house were hit by machine-gun bullets.
