DRONFIELD is a township, parish and town lying in a valley, on the old road from Chesterfield to Sheffield, with on the Midland railway, 6 miles north-west from Chesterfield and 6 south from Sheffield, in the North Eastern division of the county, hundred of Scarsdale, Eckington petty sessional division, Chesterfield union and county court district, rural deanery of Dronfield, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell. The Local Government Act of 1858 was adopted by the parish 11 Oct. 1861, and the board consists of nine members; the town is lighted with gas by a limited company and supplied with water from springs. The church of St. John the Baptist, situated on a height, is a large building in the Early Gothic style, consisting of chancel with vestry, clerestoried nave, aisles, porch and an embattled western tower with spire rising to a height of 132 feet and containing a clock and 6 bells: in the vestry, which is two storeys in height, are two wooden chests, in which are preserved five large folio volumes of Poole's "Synopsis Criticorum," dated 1674, and a chained copy of Bishop Jewel's "Apology for the Church of England," dated 1569 : the aisles are separated from the nave by arcades of four arches on plain circular piers: the chancel, which is higher than the rest of the church, is Decorated, and retains three sedilia with crocketed finials and a piscina: the pulpit is very finely carved in oak : the stained east window is a memorial to the late Samuel Parker, of Broom Grove House, Sheffield, d. 1886: the west window, the square-headed clerestory windows, the battlements of the tower and the vestry are Perpendicular, and several of the windows display emblazoned coats of arms: there is an ancient tomb with recumbent effigy to Sir Richard Barley knt., of Dronfield Woodhouse, dating from the first half of the 15th century, and repaired by James Barley in 1593: in the chancel are brasses to the Fanshawe family, dated 1545; to Michael Burton, ob. 12 July, 1656; William Burton, ob. 8 July, 1657; Mary Burton, ob. 20 April, 1773; and to John, Samuel and Elizabeth Rotherham, of Dronfield House, dated 1794, 1795 and 1797 respectively, besides several others, including those of two priests who erected the church: the organ was erected at a cost of £230: in 1855 considerable alterations were made, when £1,000 was spent in repairing and repewing the church, and the chancel was restored in 1886: there are 610 sittings, of which 230 are free. The register dates from the year 1560. The living is a vicarage, net yearly value £350, including 145 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held since 1888 by the Rev. Charles Isaac Bickerstaff, surrogate. The advowson was given to the neighbouring Abbey of Beauchief by Sir Henry De Brailsford, in the reign of Edward I. though the tithes were not appropriated to that monastery until 1399, and the vicarage was endowed four years later. There is a Free Methodist chapel, erected in 1883, with 150 sittings: the Baptist chapel, built in 1871, has 200 sittings; Wesleyan, built in 1876, 150 sittings; Congregational, built in 1812 and rebuilt 1860, 550 sittings; and the Primitive Methodist chapel, an iron structure, erected in 1875, has 100 sittings. A burial board of 9 members was established in Nov. 1876. The cemetery, opened in November, 1877, is 8 acres in extent, and contains two mortuary chapels and a residence for the sexton; the total cost was £7,500, the amount being borrowed, at £5 per cent. interest, from the Public Works Loan Commissioners, to be repaid within a period of 20 years. The Town Hall, a substantial edifice of stone, was erected by the trustees of Taylor's Charity in 1863; the petty sessions, board meetings &c. are held here. The Sheffield and Rotherham Joint Stock Banking Company Limited have a branch establishment here, opened twice weekly. There is an extensive foundry, where spindles, flyers, files, edge tools, spades and shovels, steel and malleable iron are made; reaping hooks, sickles and scythes are produced in the township. A cattle fair is held yearly on April 25th, and a hiring for servants November 3rd. A flower show is held generally in August or September, at which there is also a good show of vegetables. James Swift, 18th May, 1610, left £3, to be distributed annually to the poor by the churchwardens: the Rev. Lawrence Banks surrendered by deed poll, dated 20th October, 1662, certain lands, the rents thereof to be distributed to the poor on Easter Sunday: Dorothy Hall left, June 19th, 1711, a sum of £100, the interest to be distributed yearly as follows :-£4 to the minister of Dronfield church to preach therein four sermons yearly, and the rest to be divided among the poor; it has not, however, been ascertained whether this sum was ever laid out; but the vicar receives annually £2, of which amount he retains £1 15s. or preaching two sermons on Good Friday and Midsummer day, and distributes 5s. in bread to the poor: George Cooper left, September 19th, 1763, the sum of £2 12s. to the vicar and churchwardens of Dronfield yearly, to be distributed in twelve penny loaves amongst twelve poor people every Sunday for ever: the Rev.
