As to ye pulling down ye walls at Totley was by Joseph White who did pull down ? of wall and he being a freeholder holds 6 acres of land under the Rt Hon Lord Middleton which was formerly inclosed from ye common and he only pays 4s per annum and awarding? As land is sett at Totley it is valued to be worth above £3 per annum.
Henry Dalton ** was another in pulling down the wall and he is tenant to my Lord and holds under him a smithy a hovel gardens and a lease of ye yearly value of 40s and only payes 8d per annum he did say Dam Lord Middleton Down with ye wall
Ralph Martin* he was another in pulling down ye wall and he holds half an acre of land belonging to ye Common at Totley at 4d per annum which is valued to be worth 7s per annum.
Edward Dalton was another who did pull down part of ye wall - and he hath enclosed from ye waste a house(or horse) poole and laid it to another ones land.
Christopher Newbould was another transgressor and did pull down part of ye wall, and hath enclosed a well and a fold from ye Lord's waste.
Robert Fisher was present at pulling down ye fence but did not pull down any part notwithstanding he raised ye riot and tumult to be made,
Ye quantity of land that was to be taken in was six acres and Mr Nodder and Mr Fenton assigned over the same to Christopher Elliott, there was about 15 roods of walling pulled down.(1210 square yards equals one rood)
Christopher Elliott tells me that he and Joshua Greene Sen. And Joshua Green Jun. Was present and did see ye wall put down and knows that what is above mentioned is true and is (un?)willing to sett their hands hereunder if my Lord take noe notice of this fact ye freeholders will enclose that all ye comons belonging to them.

1727 Letter to Lord Middleton.
Being a freeholder in the Liberty of Totley and finding dayley encroachment on said common give you the trouble of this because I presume my Lord Middleton and you have been wrongly informed as to the 8 or 6 ackers of land that Christopher Yellot (a gentleman of indifferent character) or his son in law one or both of them are for inclosing to the great prejudice of the freeholders as likewise the poor of the said liberty, he the same Yellot having some time ago inclosed a considerable close under pretence for a waife close*. He at same time hath it in tillage and for that which therefore inclosing hath as I'm informed advanced about foure pounds to the party that rent Coal Pitts of my Lord Middleton to gain an assignment from their lease which looks like buying and selling my Lords Comon. I hope Sir that you will please to consider that those tenants hath no power to sell or give the rights of the freeholders and this part of the comon lying so remote from said coal pitts. There is small colour (?) for its being inclosed on said account it likewise being the very best part and marrow of the common; and as I heare Mr White, Mr Offley and Mr Bagshaw so my self thinke it not faire to consent to it; I should have been proud to have waited of you would my indisposition given me leave for Sir I hope you'll excuse the trouble of this from Sir
Your most humble servant Christopher Pegge 26 April Beauchief

Sir if any at all we thinke an aker or two sufficient for ye coalyarde and yet as near ye coal pitts as may be most convenient.

C1734 About this time Derbyshire smelters who had a smeltery of this type in Bagillt, Flintshire, built a similar cupola at Old Hay, Totley. This extremely important site has been partly landscaped and the mill altered (it was used for scythegrinding in the 19th century and the outline of the dam can be traced and one waterwheel pit is visible). This is one of the earliest cupolas in Derbyshire – a process invented in Bristol about 1678., although it is quite likely that smelting took place at the Bole Hill in the Middle Ages.

The humble petition of Sarah Webster of Totley in the County of Derby widow
Your Lordship’s tenant there for a cottage with appurtenances thereto belonging. That about 5 years ago your Petitioner was to wait upon Your Late Right Honorable Father and Your Lordship was present? At the same time concerning the tenant-right of the above mentioned cottage. And your Lordship’s Late Father ordered then that your petitioner should pay unto the ? who would have had her possession from her the sum of five pounds which she did at that time. And was obedient to your Lordship therein. And that after these five pounds were paid Your Lordship’s Father promised that your petitioner should have a confirmation made her of the said cottage upon the old rent and that your petitioner hopes that Your Lordship in your goodness may please to remember the same. And since that time your petitioner has laid out and expended upon the said farm in and about the same several considerable sums of money. But so it may please Your Lordship that Mr Whitehead Your Lordship’s steward hath advanced your petitioner’s rent from one shilling per annum into six shillings a year. And then made a further demand of two guineas which your petitioner paid unto the said Mr Whitehead, but upon what your petitioner knows not but paid the said Mr Whitehead the monies for fear that your petitioner should it oblige Your Lordship if she should refuse to pay the same and further your petitioner must of great necessity lay out a great deal more money upon a barn belonging to the said house which is now going to drop down by reason of the groundwork of the walls there being set upon the clay and not laid firm as they ought to have been.
This is followed by a note reading as follows:
Your petitioner most humbly begs that Your Lordship out of your tender compassion to a widow will out of your great goodness be pleased to give unto your petitioner a confirmation of the said cottage with the appurtenances upon the old rent according to your Late Most Honorable Father’s order that Mr Whitehead may not impose upon your petitioner any further and for Your Lordship’s long life and happiness as in duty bound will ever pray not

The Humble Petition of Robert Fisher of Totley Bents
Sheweth
Whereas your petitioner dwelleth in a cottage erected upon your Lordship's waste in ye Liberty of Totley which he and his ancestors have enjoyed time out of mind at ye yearly rent of eightpence a year, your Petitioner hath also another small cottage at ye yearly rent of fourpence , both which he hath enjoyed peaceably and quietly without any disturbance form your Lordship, or any of your noble ancestors, till of late one Mr Whitehead of Mansfield came and raised your petitioner to a very great degree notwithstanding he has a Deed to ye contrary which your Lordship hath seen and seemed to approve of and notwithstanding yet your Lordship Had given your petitioner a letter to deliver to ye said Mr Whitehead which he accordingly did; yet he forced ye petitioner to pay ten shillings, whereas his usual rent was but one, besides two guineas he had extorted from him before & ye like sum he took from several others besides ye advancement of ye rent and some of ye poore sort are raised to more than really they are able to pay. Now that what your petitioner humbly begs, is, that yr Lordship out of your great goodness would be pleased to take ye matter into consideration & reduce yr Petitioner rent to what it formerly was & order Mr Whitehead to pay him back the money which he so unjustly took from him
And ye Petitioner (as in duty bound) shall ever pray etc

Appears to have been built by the Bagshawes on one of the earliest smelting mill sites known (MOTT)The ore hearth with its water driven bellows was replaced by a cupola or reverberatory furnace. By this process the flame was forced back over the oreThe 'commodious' location of the Sheaf Mills was far outweighed by the fuel shortages which arose (see 1585) as there were at least 10 local smelting mills in the area in the 17th Century RLIB BGDS 8/3/7 Wyllies book Mott 1967 p9

1746 Totley 250 years ago in 1746 Lord Middleton sold 4 acres of land at the Croft Head near Totley Bents to the Freeholders of Totley to help finance education of poor children in the district, the income from grazing the land would provide revenue. Down at OldHay or Olda Cupola George Barker smelted lead brought over from Derbyshire by pack horse. That same year widow Anne Greaves of Totley Bents made her Will. Her Inventory reflects the modest wealth of this well-established Totley Bents family who farmed in a small way and at one time leased the local coal mine and also smelted lead nearby. She left 9 couples of ewes and lambs, 22 gelt sheep, 3 milk cows, 2 calves, an old cow and 3 stirks (young bullocks or heifers), certain goods and chattels. There were obviously many household effects, beds, chests, chairs, bed-linen, pillows, pots and pans and so on even including rare pieces for this area - a desk and 2 virginals. The complete list and values are to be found in the Wills and Inventories at Lichfield Joint Record Office although thankfully photocopies can be studied at Sheffield Archives Dept. Dore Village Society published a selection of Dore and Totley Wills and Inventories between 1539 and 1747 in a booklet entitled 'Seke in Body, Hole in Mynd' available from local shops. The publication provides an interesting background to local life in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

1748 Totley Cupola on the road from the lead mining areas in the High Peak to navigable water on the Don and well sited for coal supplies from the nearby Alton seam, was leased by George and John Barker. In addition to smelting ore at Shacklow the brothers had leased other smelting mills at Rowsley & Beeley....
...the fact that the cupola could smelt grades of ore impracticable in the smelting mills led to the Barkers buying ore discarded by previous generations of miners from Winster and Matlock. The lead smelted at Totley was sent by road to Rotherham the then head of navigation on the river Don and from there down river to Thorne where the greater part was bought by Milnes and Wilkinson (see cash account book J & G Barker 1743 - 51

1748 April Robert Pinder of Totley was granted licence as common swailer at Chesterfield quarter sessions. There seems to have been some distinction between swailers and badgers from 1552 - 1772. These types of small traders as well as drovers had to be licenced. The name badger was derived from the 1697 Settlement Act whereby paupers were obliged to wear a capital P on their clothing. The term was later used loosely for pedlars and chapmen.
In Jan 1748 Wm Totley of Dore was listed as a swailer - 'who was he? Could he have been William Dalton?'
Only in 1748 and 1751 were there licenced swailers from Totley and then the same man, Pinder. See List of Badgers and Swailers - most of whom are Dore and Dronfield. Only above 2 are Totley

1753 By indentures of lease and release, dated 10 and 11 October 1753 Lord Middleton gave land for a school but this was enclosed and the rent used to support six Totley children at Dore School. "By indentures a piece of waste land about 4 acres was conveyed to trustees * in order that a school might be erected upon it, the intention was never carried into effect and the land is let for £6 p.a. which is paid for the instruction of 6 poor children. Some time ago inhabitants proposed to build a school by subscription. The plan was however abandoned and a school built by D'Ewes Coke on his own land. A sum of £125 was raised towards building the school and was put out to interest for the use of the schoolmaster. See details of the school on Totley Hall Lane

Lord Middleton held for the Honour of Peverell at Totley and other places in the County of Derby relating to the period 20 October 1702 to 11 May 1763. There are also 8 Suit Rolls containing the names of all freeholders and copyholders and 7 rentals of the cottages and intakes. BE has seen and has copies of most of these documents some of which are not dated and are in a separate file marked TOTLEY COURTS BARON AND LEET, 1561 – 1786 Ring binder. Unfortunately the information therein can be rather sparse. However the rentals are more interesting and contain names and sometimes trades and clues as to individual houses and then it shows the old and new rents. The rentals for 1762 indicate that there were about 24 houses in total say 90 – 120 people.

1764 Letter to Lord Middleton from Manley refers to Totley Court & small advance in rent in 1762 Mi E1/1/110-111 BE Copy
1764 Case regarding several small rents payable to the Right Honourable Lord Middleton for estates within the Manor of Totley: My Lord Middleton is Lord of the Manor of Totley and there have been Courts held there under the Honour of Peveril for upwards of 60 years as appears by the verdicts. There are many small rents payable to His Lordship some of which are not a tenth part of the value of the premises for which they are paid.
It is apprehended these small rents originally arose from acknowledgements that were paid to the Lord for his consent to take inclosures of the common and that when the freeholders there agreed to permit any person to inclose such person applied to the Lord's steward for his consent who gave it upon their agreeing to pay such acknowledgment which was entered in the rental and collected by the Steward when he held the courts. By a rental dated about 1736 which is the first we can find there are three columns entitled old rents, rents as raised and received by Mr Whitehead, and rents as reduced and settled 28 October 1736 which all of them differ and if the payment of those three different sums could be made out by any accounts wherein Mr Whitehead or any of the stewards had given credit for them it might be very useful but His Lordship does not find any accounts so far back and there has never been any variation of these rents since the year 1736 as appears by the rentals and the late Mr Gardiner's accounts. His Lordship now thinks it proper that these rents should be raised a reasonable way for they have long been enjoyed for such small acknowledgements as have not half paid the expenses of the courts: But is first desirous of knowing whether an ejectment can be maintained against the tenants of his Lordship in case of their refusal to pay an advance rent and rendering the old ones.
As no acknowledgement has been paid by any of these tenants to any person for the Freeholders who had also originally a right to insist upon the same. It is apprehended the Freeholders can now have no pretence of claim whatsoever and therefore your opinion is desired whether these rents paid in manner aforesaid without variation for 28 years last past can give such tenants a freehold subject to the payment of such rents. Several of the tenants are Freeholders and therefore you will please also to consider whether such tenants who have on that account right of common can in law be supposed still to have preserved such right upon their respective Takes as will now impower them to pull them down if they are determined not to pay such rent as His Lordship expects. For although the rest of the Freeholders are precluded by time from pulling down, yet if each respective tenant who is a Freeholder can justify this doing so upon his own respective take this may be equally injurious to His Lordship and in such case it seems most eligible for His Lordship to grant short leases at a very trifling advance which probably would be accepted of and by all the tenants and then at the expiration of such leases His Lordship's title would be indisputable.
(see Interesting reply from Edward Wilmot 6 August 1764, undoubtedly a lawyer)
Reply by Edward Wilmot on 6th August 1764 to the above letter is as follows:
The question arising upon the above case has been long litigated thereon and great variety of opinion has been upon it and that same is still a vexatious question but if it can be made to appear that such freeholders took in such inclosures from the waste with the privity and by the consent of the then Lord of the Manor upon agreement to pay such reserved (?) rent by way of acknowledgement to the Lord for his license to take in such inclosures I then think that Lord Middleton in such case may maintain such ejectment; but if such inclosures were made up and taken in from the comon without any lease or license applied for to or granted by the then Lord, and an adverse possession has since been continued, I then apprehend that such length of an adverse possession will give such a legal title to the freeholders to such inclosures paying such acknowledgements or reserved rent that Lord Middleton will not be able to maintain an ejectment; and I have generally observed that the judges upon the tryall of such titles have greatly inclined in favour of such titles, where such payments of a certain small sum have been yearly paid for a number of years: and I don’t know by what right a Lord of a Manor or any other person can refrain(?) the several tenants or freeholders in the possession of the several inclosures taken from the common, from prostrating the fences and laying the same again open to the common, when the rest of the freeholders will then be at liberty to retain there antient right of common, although they were barred by the length of time the same were so inclosed, from pulling down the fences and laying the same open to the common, and therefore I think that if the several freeholders will take leases (which I scares think they will) that it will be most advisable for Lord Middleton to grant them such leases, for at the end of such leases His Lordship may then maintain an ejectment against them and such leases will I think be an Estoppel at Law to such freeholders from setting up a title in themselves to such premises (?) so leased.

1781 9 June
Grays Inn
My Lord
By the intercession of your Brother Mr Francis Willoughby I obtained from the late Lord Middleton a Deputation of Gamekeeper for the Manor of Totley in Derbyshire lying about seven miles from Sheffield for Thomas Dalton, yeoman, who lives there & was recommended by some gentlemen in the neighbourhood as an honest careful man and no game killer. By his care a few broods of moor game have been to be met with for two or three years last upon the Moors, where before that time scarce one was to be seen, & they have afforded two or three days diversion in the shooting season to myself and one or two other Gentlemen in the Neighbourhood & other gentlemen, who have accidentally passed that way on shooting parties, and the Poachers have in a good measure been kept off. If Your Lordship will be so kind as to renew the Appointment of Thomas Dalton for the same purpose, I shall esteem it as a great favour; & as the shooting season approaches it will be very convenient to have an authorised gamekeeper there as soon as possible. I shall upon that account hope Your Lordship will please to give him the Deputation as soon as the Instrument can be prepared for signing. And if Your Lordship will honour me with a favourable answer directed to me at Sheffield I will take care to have it laid before you properly drawn by Mr Manley of Chesterfield if he be the steward of the Manor as he was in the late Lord’s lifetime I hope to be at Home before this day week. The melancholy occasion of my brother John’s death has now drawn me hither and prevented me from making this application to Your Lordship sooner. About two months ago I called at your door in Portman Square in hopes of having the honour of seeing Your Lordship & congratulating you on your Accession to the High Honours of the Family Title & Estate, the Intelligence of which had given me sincere Pleasure. Mr Frank Willoughby called upon me in his way to Buxton & then seemed better in health tho’ not without complaints, than when I had seen him the last time before that. He returned when I was at Boroughbridge, but wrote to me, that he was no worse for Buxton, tho’ some Physician thought it not the proper place for him – he purposed bathing in the sea, but I sho’d think, perhaps, advice might be necessary in that case too. – My Brother Andrew is advised to Buxton, which agreed with him last year & I hope to find him in that part of the country on my return & pray his health will soon permit him to take his part in the service of his country, Which he would I believe willingly engage in, except in the hot climates which his constitution wont bear. – I beg my respects to Lady Middleton, and am, My Lord, with sincere regard, Your Lordship’s faithful, humble servant Ja Wilkinson

1781 22 June. Wm Manley of Chesterfield wrote to Lord Middleton saying that the freeholders of Totley 'wish an inclosure of the Commons’ (BE copy) ‘My Lord At the request of Mr Wilkinson I send the enclosed deputation which he desires the favour of your Lordship to execute and return to me. The freeholders of Totley wish an inclosure of the Commons within that Manor which was thought of some time ago when the late Lord Middleton was applied to regarding it, there are some disputes as to the boundaries which should be settled whether the inclosure is approved of or not and I hope that business may be done amicably as I have applied to the agents of the Dukes of Rutland and Devonshire for that purpose. I believe I shall be requested by the freeholders to wait upon your Lordship regarding these matters in the course of the summer and I will endeavour to get the necessary information in the interim. I am my Lord your Lordship’s most obedient and faithful humble servant. William Manley’
23 June reply ‘I desire you will make yourself acquainted how part of and in what manner my interest would be affected by an inclosure of Totley and shall be obliged to you for your thoughts and reply by letter at your leisure on that subject. The coals should be well examined as to value and not to inclose to that point be well understood and managed to the best – query if it would be advisable to come? And know what number of seams of coal are there – I had Ed Bostock states of ye coal and Mr Robert Barbers 1793 – but they are not satisfactory’ M.

The above mentioned premises are now the property of William Green, and he distributes one shillings worth of bread on every 4th Sunday at Dore Chapel amongst poor persons of Totley, as the gift of the said testator.
A board in old Dore Infant School (back corridor) reads: ‘ William Green of Totley gives the sum of 12 shillings to be paid yearly for ever to the poor out of the rents and profits arising from certain lands and tenements in the Township of Totley. This money to be paid by the nephew of the said William Green and at the decease of the said nephew to be vested in the hands of the chapel warden of Dore for the time being for ever for the above purpose.’
