Kilburn  Derbyshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Kilburn like this:

KILBOURNE, a village and a township in Horsley parish, Derby. The village stands adjacent to the Derby, Little Eaton, and Ripley railway, 2¾ miles SW by W of Ripley; and has a station on the railway, a post office under Derby, Baptist and Wesleyan chapels, and a girls' school. The township comprises 904 acres. ...

Real property, £4, 083; of which £1, 300 are in mines. Pop. in 1851, 814; in 1861, 951. Houses, 194. The increase of pop. arose from the extension of coal mines and iron works in adjacent parishes. Coal of excellent quality is worked in the township, near the village. Kilbourne Hall is the seat of H. F. Hunter, Esq.
