Hi, someone has just given me this lovely link to a database of people who worked as servants or labourers on the Chatsworth estate. Might be interesting for those of you with Derbyshire roots!
Wow many thanks for this my ancestors came from Edensor and many of them worked at Chatsworth now I can sit for hours and find who when and where.
Mine did too! My names were Hill / Bark / Strutt / Allen / Coulson / Furniss / Mycock / Dungworth / Bessick / Merrill
Mine are mainly Hibbert - Uriah Hibbert who shot the White Deer is one of mine, 3 cousin 3 x removed!!! But there are several of the family working there.
Hi Sue re Uriah Hibbert and the shooting of the White Deer was this done for some specific reason?.Is there a story round this event? Interested as my son in law is a Chatsworth tenant farmer also as you know my Sister in Law's Mum was a Hibbert.
Wow, what an amazing resource! Thank you so much for sharing this. I'd always suspected that some of my Pleasance and Marsden ancestors worked at Chatsworth, and now I know.
