White´s 1885 Descriptive Directory

Listing from White´s 1885 Nottinghamshire Publication

Hucknall-under-Huthwaite is a township and village, 1½ mile W.N.W. of Sutton-in-Ashfield ; in Sutton-in-Ashfield ancient parish, Mansfield union and county court district, Nottingham bankruptcy district, Broxtow wapentake, Mansfield petty sessional division, Sutton-in-Ashfield polling district, Mansfield parliamentary division, and Southwell diocese.   It had 2028 inhabitants in 1881, and comprises 1227 acres of land and 1 of water : the rateable value is £5,087.   The Duke of Portland is chief landowner, and the Earl of Carnarvon, R.M.E. Dodsley Esq., Mr Rowland Kesteven, and others have estates here.   Beneath the surface are seven beds of coal, at various depths from 18 to 308 yards, and so far proved to be of excellent quality.   The WESLEYAN CHAPEL and SUNDAY SCHOOL here, erected in 1815 by Mr. Eleazor Boot, (who lies interred in the chapel yard), was repaired in 1869 by the present Mr. Boot.   The WESLEYAN FREE CHURCH CHAPEL and SUNDAY SCHOOL was erected in 1856.   The PRIMITIVE METHODIST CHAPEL was built in 1884, and the UNITED METHODIST FREE CHURCH was erected in 1884.   The NATIONAL SCHOOLS at Hucknall-under-Huthwaite, built by the Dowager Countess of Carnarvon in 1868, are principally supported by the present Earl, and has an average attendance of 200 mixed scholars and 150 infants. The school, which has an apse, and contains an altar and choir stalls, is used for divine service on Sundays, under the vicar of Sutton-in-Ashfield; the erection of a church here is contemplated and will probably soon be begun. A Church Institute is held in the school on Saturday, and has now about 50 members, who meet for debating theology, politics, &c; there is also attached cricket and football clubs and other recreations; Mr Joseph Boardman is hon. sec.   In 1669, Ann Mason left Fenny Bank Close, 2acres 3rod 32perch, now producing £5 per annum, for the education of poor children in this township.   In 1834, Mr. Jeremiah Burrows by will directed that a portion of the land contained in his orchard should be set apart as a burial ground for him and his family for ever.   The following year Mr. Burrows died, and was interred according to his request, and other members have been interred in the same place since.   The land has been fenced round and neatly laid out by the present owner, Mr. Boot, but is now disused.
  POST and MONEY ORDER OFFICE at Mr. Samuel Lowe's.   Letters arrive at 8 a.m., and are despatched at 5.30 p.m., via Mansfield. Sutton-in-Ashfield (2 miles off), is the nearest Telegraph Office.
