What is and isn't included here:
- Date of Issue given. Issue Numbers not included.
- Many extracts are presented in note form only, as this is a finding aid
rather than a complete transcript. However, some entries at the
beginning of the nineteenth century are fully transcribed as this
was where I began.
- If entries for more than one person are in the same issue of
the gazette they are listed in separate boxes.
- If there is more than one entry for an individual in any one
issue of the gazette all additional entries are included in the
same box, giving the page for additional enties. Please note that
if a page number is given it indicated the image number as opposed
to the actual page in the issue.
- Names are given in the order they appeared in the Gazette. So
if it was Christian Name first then it appears that way in these
extracts. However, if Surname was given first then the Surname
is given first here as well.
- Entries referring to Matlock that don't include names are generally
omitted. However, I have a list of dates for all entries covering
such things as setting up of Courts, canals, bridge widening,
road building or widening and the railway. I'm willing to share
this information with those who are enthusiasts for roads or
railways. Some church information is included in, or will be
added to, the section on churches
elsewhere on this website

things as bankcruptcy, order of Court etc.
The following abbreviations have been used:
- itpo - in the parish of. If followed by M, it means in the parish
- itco D - in the County of Derby
