Mapperley  Derbyshire


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

MAPPERLEY, a township in Kirk-Hallam parish, Derbyshire; on the Nutbrook canal, 2 miles NW of Ilkeston r. station, and 7 NE by N of Derby. It has a post office under Derby. Acres, 972. Real property, £1,556. Pop. in 1851,359; in 1861,435. Houses, 90. The increase of pop. arose from the extension of coal mines and iron-works in the adjacent parishes of Denby and West Hallam. There are a chapel of ease, a Wesleyan chapel, a slightly endowed Sunday school, and an infant school.
