STANTON and NEWHALL form a township, in the parish of Stapenhill, Southern division of the county, hundred of Repton and Gresley, Swadlincote petty sessional division, Burton-upon-Trent union and county court district, rural deanery of Repton, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell : the former lies about 2 miles and the latter 4 south-east from Burton-upon-Trent station, 125½ from London and about 6 north-west from Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Stanton and Newhall form one township for rating purposes, but ecclesiastically, Stanton is annexed to Stapenhill and Newhall is a separate ecclesiastical parish, formed in 1845. The church of St. John, at Newhall, erected about 1842, at a cost, including residence and school, of £7,000, is a structure of brick in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave, western porch and a pinnacled tower at the west end containing a clock and 1 bell : in 1884 the church was restored and chancel added at a cost of £800 raised by public subscriptions: there are 500 sittings, 100 being free. The register dates from the year 1842. The living is a vicarage, gross yearly value £260, including 8 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of trustees, and held since 1888 by the Rev. Edgar Henry Rand M.A. of Trinity College, Dublin. Here are Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist and Free Methodist chapels. The Hall, erected in 1874, at a cost of £3,000, by the late Anne Elizabeth Countess of Chesterfield, in memory of her son, George, seventh Earl of Chesterfield, is a brick building, and contains reading and news rooms, billiard rooms and a spacious lecture hall, but is now closed. Here are coal pits and brickfields. Stanton House, standing in a park, is the seat of Lewis Barber esq. The Earl of Carnarvon and J. and N. Nadin esqrs. are joint owners of the manor and principal landowners. The soil is clay; subsoil, the same. The area of the parish is 1,613 acres; rateable value, £4,072; the population in 1881 was, of Stanton and Newhall township, £4,257 ; and of Newhall ecclesiastical parish, 3,902.
