Notes on the above:

[1] Lysons, Rev Daniel and Samuel Lysons Esq. (1817) "Topographical and Historical Account of Derbyshire" London: Printed for T. Cadell, Strand; and G. and A. Greenland, Poultry. This is the Derbyshire section of their "Magna Britannia".
[2] The Lysons record the following townships under the parish of Hope: Abney, Aston, Fernilee, Highlow, Great Hucklow, Little Hucklow, Offerton, Shatton, Stoke, Thornhill, Thornton.
[3] Whilst not mentioned by Davies, according to the Lysons the chapelry of Hayfield contained the townships of Chinley, Bugsworth and Brownside as well as Great-Hamlet, Phoside and Kinder. Also part of Thornsett, the remainder being in the chapelry of Mellor.
[4] Though not mentioned by Davies, according to the Lysons the parish of Bradbourne "also contained the hamlets of Nether-Bradborne, and Lea-hall".
[5] The parish of Glossop was made up of the township of Glossop, "including the vills or hamlets of Hadfield, Padfield, Whitfield, Chunall, Dinting, Simondley and Charlesworth" as well as "the parochial chapelries of Hayfield and Mellor". Only Charlesworth, Hayfield and Mellor are mentioned by Davies.
[6] Davies mentions Grange (Grange Mill), but not Ivonbrook. In 1817 the Lysons wrote: "The manor of Ivenbrook (a small village about four miles north from Wirksworth) was given by Henry Studley, who died about the year 1165, to the Abbey of Bildewas, in Shropshire ... Lord Scarsdale is the present proprietor" (p299). By 1891 Ivonbrook was connected to Middleton by Wirksworth (Kelly's Directory).
[7] Though not mentioned by Davies, according to the Lysons the chapelry of Mellor "comprises the vills, hamlets or townships of Mellor, Ludworth, Chisworth, Whittle and part of Thornsett. The greater part of the populous village of New-mills is in the hamlet of Whittle ... the villages of Raworth, Marple-bridge and Mellor-moor-end are also in this chapelry. ..
Mellor Hall, anciently the seat of the Mellor family".
[8] Though not mentioned by Davies, the Lysons record the townships of Newton Grange and Sturston as within the parish of Ashbourne. The Lysons record 3 houses and 15 inhabitants in 1811 at Newton Grange. There were 86 families in 1811 and 387 inhabitants at Sturston.
[9] The Lysons record the township of Ravensdale Park as within the parish of Muggington.
[10] Not mentioned by Davies but the Lysons record Wyaston as a township within the parish of Edlaston
