Archival history In the autumn of 1956 the executors of Mr. E. G. Bagshawe (who died in August of that year), gave to the Sheffield City Libraries a large collection of documents and papers which had been accumulated by him and his father, Benjamin Bagshawe (d.1907). The Library also acquired another large consignment of these papers which had passed into the hands of a bookseller. When they were all assembled they comprised a number of sacks containing deeds, a number of metal deed boxes and wooden chests containing books and papers, and numerous cartons of more recent correspondence.
The whole collection was in very bad condition, particularly the contents of the metal boxes and wooden chests which were mildewed and very dirty; the bundles of papers in many of them had broken and become hopelessly confused, as well as having been a prey to mice and spiders. Several interesting maps were picked up as they lay torn on a garage floor. The work of cleaning, sorting and repairing therefore took a good deal of time. Eventually, the component parts of a very heterogeneous collection came into view.

Supplementary information The entries for the deeds in this catalogue are reduced from a fuller catalogue available in Sheffield Archives. Cutting down the original catalogue entries presented some difficulty, particularly in the case of the early deeds. It It was decided to give fairly fully the subject matter including field names, of each of the earlier deeds, and omit the witnesses. It is regretted that it was not possible to include both within the scope of this catalogue. Dates are given in New Style.
Related information Note: Some material from the collection of Benjamin and E.G. Bagshawe which did not come to Sheffield Libraries (and subsequently to Sheffield Archives) was purchased for the South Yorkshire Industrial Museum (Cusworth Hall Museum). See the list headed 'Lead Mining MSS' in the Cusworth Hall Museum list 2 (filed with the Doncaster Archives lists). (?Documents now in the Goodchild Collection, Wakefield?)

Administrative history:
Benjamin Bagshawe's family lived at Foolow in the parish of Eyam. He himself was a Sheffield solicitor, as was his son. Their connections with Foolow remained close, and it was their Derbyshire background and interests which produced the collection.

1. Documents acquired by Benjamin Bagshawe and E.G. Bagshawe for their antiquarian interest. Benjamin Bagshawe, particularly in his early life, in the 1870s, was planning a history of the High Peak; his son, E. G. Bagshawe, was concerned mainly with a pedigree of the family of Bagshawe, widespread in the Peak district. In pursuit of these hobbies, they collected deeds and other documents, the most important being items acquired from the Bateman sale and the muniments of the Eyres of Hassop Hall. It has not been possible to discover the origins of all the other documents.
2. In addition to this collection, the Bagshawes, father and son, made copious notes from documents in the British Museum, the Public Record Office and others in private hands, which were relevant to their Derbyshire studies. These and some antiquarian correspondence form a second part of the whole collection.
3. Benjamin Bagshawe's father was the executor of a cousin, William Wyatt of Foolow (d.1857), mineral agent and solicitor and himself the owner of lead mining interests which he left to Bagshawe. His papers included a large collection of Derbyshire lead mining account books, maps and papers, covering the 18th and early 19th centuries. These were in part the records of his own business, but many of them had been acquired by him. Altogether they form a valuable record of Derbyshire lead mining history.
4. Lastly, there are the solicitors' and other business papers of Wyatt, Bagshawe and others. Among Wyatt's clients were the Derbyshire families of Barker, Carleill and Middleton. Wyatt and Bagshawe were both active in Liberal, and later Unionist, politics; Bagshawe acted as Liberal-Unionist agent for the Hallamshire & Doncaster Divisions, 1885-1905, and there is some correspondence relating to these activities. He also appears to have acquired the business papers of the Hall family, old established solicitors of Castleton, of - Brown, solicitor of Tideswell and of Richard Heyward, surveyor of Bakewell, but whether for their historical interest or as business successor is not clear.
Included among Bagshawe's business papers are some later 19th century farming accounts, lease books, etc., belonging to his own family as farmers. Few of them, unfortunately are likely to be of much value historically.
The whole collection also contained various Derbyshire Enclosure Acts, Acts relating to lead mining, and other printed material, which is catalogued in the card index of the Sheffield Collection of printed books and not in this catalogue.

PART II ANTIQUARIAN NOTES  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
Benjamin Bagshawe worked particularly on the Wolley and other manuscripts in the British Museum, and was much the more coherent notetaker. Mr. E. G. Bagshawe went through many of the relevant documents in the Public Record Office, but many of his notes were so rough and incoherent as to be in some cases worthless to the student - for whom, of course, they were not intended.

This heterogenous and miscellaneous mass of papers has been sorted as far as possible. It consists of transcripts and notes (many of them very rough indeed), made by or for Benjamin and E. G. Bagshawe. Benjamin Bagshawe had in mind writing a history of the High Peak Hundred, and most of his notes were compiled to this end. He was also interested in the Baghshawe family history. Mr. E. G. Bagshawe was concerned almost solely with the pedigree the Bagshawe family and most of his researches were directly or indirectly concerned with this. Unfortunately, he seems never to have produced anything approaching a finished product.

Folders of Antiquarian notes by B. Bagshawe  Bag C/3363  [n.d.]

Arrangement: No attempt has been made to rearrange the notes or folders.

These relate mainly to Derbyshire places and families. The sources are in the main the Wolley, Hunter, Mitchell and Harleian Collections in the British Museum, with some additional material from local collections of deeds belonging to families, solicitors, etc. It was probably collected mainly in the earlier part of Bagshawe's life in the 1870s. For many places listed the material is brief, and all of it is scrappy. Cox's Derbyshire Churches covers some of the same ground.

Administrative history:
Benjamin Bagshawe's father was the executor of a cousin, William Wyatt of Foolow (d.1858), mineral agent and solicitor and himself the owner of lead mining interests, which he left to Bagshawe. His papers included a large collection of Derbyshire lead mining account books, maps and papers covering the 18th and early 19th centuries. The majority of these seem to have belonged originally to the Barker family, whose lead business passed to Wyatt, but there is also material deriving from the Heyward family, who acted as Barmasters, and also as mineral agents at Hubberdale and elsewhere, from William Longsdon and from Thomas Birds A few may have been acquired directly by Wyatt himself for business or antiquarian reasons.

(N.B. Where the exact location of a mine is known the National Grid reference has been given).

Administrative history:
This lead mining and smelting business was founded in 1729 by William Barker, steward of the Duke of Devonshire, and was carried on by Alexander and Thomas Barker, the latter being steward to the Duke of Rutland. Their first smelting mill was at Shacklow but in 1748 they leased Totley Cupola and in 1752 built a new Cupola at Harewood, on the East Moor, near Chesterfield. About 1759 the Barkers entered into partnership with the Wilkinsons and during the latter half of the century the firm purchased interests in a considerable number of mines. In 1806 Isaac Wilkinson withdrew from the partnership and a period of financial difficulty followed, partly occasioned by the low price of lead. In 1816 Benjamin Wyatt of Foolow bought a quarter share and finally purchased the whole business in 1829. After his death his son William took over until his death in 1858.

Administrative history:
Heyward appears to have been agent for several lead merchants. At one time in the 1730s he was acting for Richard Bagshawe at Miners Engine and later on was agent at Crimbo, and other mines in the Flagg and Taddington area, for the Barkers. Those of his records which relate to specific mines have been catalogued under the appropriate name. As the Heyward family were also Barmasters it is not always easy to distinguish between the nature and origin of their papers.
Longsdon is more obscure but he also seems to have acted as an agent at the Eyam Edge mines.

Administrative history:
William Wyatt and Benjamin Bagshawe were both active in Liberal and Liberal Unionist politics. Bagshawe acted as Liberal Unionist agent for the Hallamshire and Doncaster, divisions, 1885-1905. He was also concerned in many aspects of local life in Sheffield, being a member of the Libraries and Museums Committee, secretary of the Literary and Philosophical Society and holding the offices of Coroner and Registrar of the County Court.

Among the Wyatts' clients were the Derbyshire families of Barker, Carleill, Middleton and Bradshaw-Smith and a number of their papers passed into Wyatts' hands. Notable among these are the records of the Barker family which include documents relating to the Duke of Devonshire's estate of which they were, for a period, stewards.
There are also a few estate records relating to the property of the two families but, unfortunately, they are not likely to be of much value from the historical point of view.
This section also includes the business papers of the Hall family, old established solicitors of Castleton, of J. Brown, solicitor, of Tideswell and Richard Heyward, surveyor of Bakewell, all acquired by Benjamin Bagshawe, but whether for their historical interest or as business successor is not clear.

Thomas Birds IV (1779-1829) was a descendant of Thomas Cartlidge of Coal Aston whose daughter Elizabeth had married Robert Middleton in 1696. One of the children of this marriage married as her second husband William Longsdon. Birds was therefore related to both these families and certainly acted as executor for Longsdon.

For the Carleil family  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The Carleils originated from Sewerby near Bridlington (East Riding) but moved to Derbyshire in the eighteenth century, William Carleill (1768-1843) becoming owner of Longstone Hall. Of the progeny of his marriage with Eleanor Green four were born deaf and dumb and two died young, the remainder were Elizabeth (1805-1865) and Anne (1802-1873) who married John Thornhill. Wyatt acted as agent for the Carleil estates and after William Carleill's death took over the trusteeship of his daughters, which had originally been assigned to Yarburgh Graeme of Sewerby.

Some of the papers relate to the business of Thomas Fentem who was trustee for Maria Carleill (1811-1874) under the will of her sister Elizabeth. There are also one or two items relating to Wightwizle near Ecclesfield where the Carleills had property as the result of their brief tenure of Ecclesfield Hall during the eighteenth century.

Their son, Pierce, had a daughter, Anne who inherited the Eyam, Bretton and Foolow estates, and married Eaglesfield Smith of Langshaw, Scotland (d. 1838). The heir of this marriage was Eaglesfield Bradshaw Smith who also lived in Scotland. His daughter, Mary, who inherited Bradshaw Hall and Abney, married Charles Bowles of Middlesex.
