"Fair Copies of Charters & other Ancient Documents relating to Derbyshire ; two Folio , Volumes, with an Index of the Contents of each Volume subjoined to it."
Is another big book, filled with extracts from old records which were then either in the Rolls Chapel or in the Tower. The great majority of these now appear in printed calendars.
This is a thin folio volume of " Derbyshire Church Notes," by Mr. John Reynolds, of Plaistow, about the year 1750. They refer to the churches of Alfreton, Beeley, Chapel-en-le- Frith, Chesterfield, Crich, Darley, Dronfield, Edensor, Elvaston, Norton, Spondon, Staveley, and South Wingfield. Each account has been cited in full or in substance in my [i.e. Cox] four volumes of "Notes on the Churches of Derbyshire".
121 paper folios. On the cover Adam Wolley wrote:
'This MS. seems formerly to have been the commonplace book of Roger Columbell, of Darley Hall, in the county of Derby, esquire, who died anno. 1605 ; it was given to me by Mr. Herbert Greensmith Beard, of Stancliffe Hall, anno. 1792.
"Adam Wolley, junr."
It consists of 121 paper folios, and is chiefly concerned with poorly written copies or abstracts of deeds, wills, and manorial notes relative to the Columbell estates at Darley ; the earlier pages were evidently written by someone older than Roger Columbell, for they are quite early in the sixteenth century. Towards the end of the volume it is more of the nature of a household account book. After the fortieth folio is passed, the book is occasionally interlarded with quaint receipts or charms, and with items of expenditure.

Catalogued " Transcripts of several Political Tracts and Pamphlets, 1620-1698, in a Folio Volume." [Cox notes] As none of these have any connection with Derbyshire, nothing need to be said here of their contents.
(DASJ 1913, p.197)
214 folios. "Forms of deeds and Miscellaneous Memoranda in the Handwriting apparently of Mr. Henry Wigley, of Middleton, in a Folio Volume."
'The contents are generally of a legal character .. Intermingled with the legal formula are a few distinctive Derbyshire entries as to actions taken in the local courts at Wirksworth ... entries made in the latter part of Elizabeth's reign, through that of James I and during the earlier years of Charles I.' (DASJ 1913, p.198)
A small quarto in the neat handwriting of Mr. John Reynolds, of Plaistow. It was begun in the year 1750. There are a variety of scraps of Derbyshire pedigrees. Many of the notes are cited in "Notes on the Churches of Derbyshire" and "Three Centuries of Derbyshire Annals" [both by Cox] The historical events pertaining to the borough of Derby, 1554-1697, appear in the second volume of Glover's history
Another small quarto in the handwriting of Mr. Reynolds, of Plaistow, half blank. The remainder consists of extracts from Thoroton's "History of Nottinghamshire".
