There are 692,955 records dating from 1538 to 1910. Derbyshire is a county in the East Midlands of England. The county borders on Greater Manchester to the northwest, West Yorkshire to the north, South Yorkshire to the northeast, Nottinghamshire to the east, Leicestershire to the southeast, Staffordshire to the west and southwest and Cheshire to the west. A large part of the Peak District National Park lies within the county and the southern extremity of the Pennine range of hills extends into the north of the county.
The area has been inhabited since the Stone Age. Deposits of lead ore in the county’s limestone hills attracted the Romans. During the Industrial Revolution, fast flowing rivers allowed for a proliferation of water powered mills, such as those designed by Richard Arkwright.
