Arthur BARKER for an encroachment
John CALLERTON (CAULTON or CALTON) for a cottage
Thurton or Robert?) GREAVES for a cottage
Memorandum also that the said James CHADWICKE doth now enjoy and take the profits of the coal delfs in Totley and the encroachments and cottages in Totley and Brampton. And he saith that he is the Learned Steward of the Courts of Record within the Honour (although now discontinued) and hath patent of that office for the term of his life and hath herewith granted the fee of -----(not recorded) B.E. marks? and the moiety of the profit for fines and compositions which hath been behind and unto him for some years last past. And so he claimeth that by the ancient customs of the Honour of Peveril he may distrain for such stipends and assuages(?) within any part of the Honour. And for want of such distress he may enter upon any waste grounds and royalties within the honour ( for Derbyshire only) and hold them either for use or for such term as the High Steward of the Honour himself hath time in such profits and at his said Stewards election and for the want of other fit? distress he hath entered upon the premises in Totley and holds them as he pretends he lawfully may. But in respect we cannot find any mention of such custom in any of the records that we have seen concerning the Honour. WE conceive that such claim as aforesaid to be inconsistant and incongruous with reason and we have therefore now returned the premises as in possession of the state and so to leave the same for further consideration.

"The cause why that the cleares (ie. the amounts removed) of Sheffield Pittes are not so much this last yeare (2 Oct.1630 - 2 Oct 1631) as they have beene the years before may appeare as followeth" -
Totley and Whiteley Wood pits produced a great deal also there was a milder winter. The coal in stock was of poor quality and people would not buy. Corn has been dear therefore "manie people was constrained to sitt with small fires rather then want bread; besides the great decay of the cutler trade which never was knowne to be so badde as this yeare! Brewing also slumped and these two are the best market for Sheffield coal. Lastly, the mines are hampered by a long earth wall in the main delf or bed.

1632The Manors of Ecclesall and Totley were granted to Stephen Bright in 1632 along with other properties ……..(Apparently the conyeyances are in the Bagshawe Collection) - granted by the Earl of Shrewsbury. Stephen Bright* had amassed considerable property in the Sheffield area and shortly before his death he received a grant of arms as a person of £1,000 per annum estate. As Arundel's Bailiff he had been in a particularly favoured position for absorbing estates sloughed off by the Howards and the Shrewsbuy Trustees in the years before 1640. Stephen Bright seems to have carried on an extensive trade as a lead merchant. It would appear that at least some of the lead ore was smelted into pigs at Beauchief and Totley. (see 1641 and 42) John Bright seems to have followed his father's business and to have maintained it during the Civil War but his more lucrative business was the coal pit/s at Handsworth.
The basis of the estates belonging to the Brights was that just as his father James(?) had been able as Bailiff to take advantage of the Arundel break-up in the years before 1640 so John the son especially benefited by the Civil War's revolution in land tenure as he was from the earliest days of the war, a member of the committee for sequestering "delinquents" estates.
*Stephen Bright took over Old Hay Mill at this time.

1691A true and perfect inventory of all and singular the goods, chattels of Strelley Pegge late of Beauchief Hall in the County of Derby, deceased, taken, valued and appraised the 14th Day of December Anno Domini, one thousand six hundred and ninety one, by Thomas Burley, John Rotherham Jnr., Godfrey Webster and Charles Dixon as followeth -
At Strawberry Lee
Item, seaven score weathers (castrated rams) and seventy five ewes - or £53 . 10 . 6.
Item, hey (hay) there - £3 . 6 . 8.
Item, one cow in calv'd (in calf) £2 . 10 . 0.
Although the greater part of the walled-in land at Strawberry Lee (now about 90 acres) probably was cleared and almost certainly walled in later than 1691 and the rudely shaped fields are earlier than the Totley Act of 1839, it is apparent that cleared land and haymaking was common at Strawberry Lee before 1691 and the Blackamoor pasturage good for sheep.
