Administrative history:
The bulk of these documents relate to properties amassed by Elizabeth, Countess of Shrewsbury ('Bess of Hardwick') in the late 16th century, and subsequently passed down to Sir Charles Cavendish (her son by her third husband) and then to his son Sir William Cavendish, subsequently Earl and 1st Duke of Newcastle. They are supplemented by documents relating to further properties acquired by the Cavendishes. The records descended through the female line to the Dukes of Portland and were held in the Estate Office at Welbeck Abbey until their deposit in the Nottinghamshire Records Office (now Nottinghamshire Archives) in 1950 and 1953 (Accessions 12 and 147).

Contents:
This collection of property deeds and related material largely consists of 16th and 17th century documents relating to Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, with a few items from Gloucestershire, Lancashire, Northumberland, Somerset, Staffordshire, Wiltshire and Yorkshire.
Many of the records concern former monastic or church land sold after the Reformation, especially the Welbeck Abbey estates which were originally acquired by Richard Whalley of Screveton but then lost by his family as a result of mounting debts and obtained by the Earl of Shrewsbury in 1584. There is also much documentation of those estates of the Earl of Newcastle which were confiscated by Parliament following his exile abroad during the Civil War and Commonwealth and of his efforts to recover them on his return at the Restoration in 1660. Marriage into the Holles family has resulted in the survival in this collection of a family cartulary of the property of John Holles, 2nd Earl of Clare, compiled in c.1660 (37/1).
The industrial development of both the Scarsdale Hundred of north east Derbyshire and Sherwood Forest in north Nottinghamshire during the 17th century is well documented. Lead smelting mills are mentioned in Derbyshire at Barlow (42/10; 43/11), Brampton (53/10; 53/15; 53/25), Lea Bridge (43/25), Linacre (84/3) and Totley (109/1). Iron furnaces or forges occur at Barlow (43/76) in Derbyshire and at Carburton (5/76; 5/83), Clipstone (7/22), and Kirkby in Ashfield (15/61) in Nottinghamshire, the latter principally developed by ironmasters from the West Midlands. Both the lead and iron industies consumed vast quantities of trees to make charcoal or the so-called 'white coal' (kiln dried wood), and numerous documents refer to the felling or leasing of woods for these purposes throughout north east Derbyshire and Sherwood Forest. In addition there are early 17th century coal mining leases, etc., in the Barlow (43/34; 42/69; 59/23), Chesterfield (61/3; 61/26) and Dronfield (70/49-53) areas of Derbyshire. These are complemented by a copy of the Commonwealth taxation survey of Scarsdale Hundred, listing industrial enterprises, of 1652 -1661 (59/21).
Several small groups of manorial documents are represented, the most extensive being a good sequence of court books for Mansfield, 1497-1816, etc., (17/2-74) as well as a long and detailed court roll for 1315-16 (17/1). These are supplemented by mediaeval or Tudor custumals of Mansfield and Edwinstowe manors (7/2), Derbyshire lead mining laws (7/2), and Peak Forest (95/10). For Sherwood Forest there are 18th century attachment court and swanimote records (27/3-20), copies of mediaeval perambulations (27/21-24), and an enquiry into depredations of woods in c.1588-59 (27/26). An unusual survival are the detailed records of coroners' inquests in Scarsdale Hundred, 1680-c.1730 enumerating a wide variety of accidental deaths, including road and coal mining accidents (65/1-71).

Also he ought to have his pigs in the same serjeanty, free of pannage in Peak Forest, and pasture for his beasts in the King's pasture in the Bailiwick when such pasture shall be sold or allocated by the bailiff of the Peak in time of pannage and when the King shall have agistment in time of pasturage in the bailiwick. he and the other foresters of the bailiwick ought to have a pig at their election from the pigs which the lord has for agistment. And he ought to have another man of that place at his own cost to keep his bailiwick when he is busy elsewhere or must leave the bailiwick and the country, such man taking oath before the chief bailiff and verderers of the Peak to fulfil the office until he return and no longer. And he ought to have a youth under him at his own expense whenever he is in the country who shall take the oath of vert and venison before the chief bailiff and verderers. And the ministers of the forest, 24 jurors and the ancient records agree that his ancestors had the same rights at their enfeoffment and it is enquired whether he has taken other rights not belonging to him. Similarly Thomas le Archer, forester of the fee of the same bailiwick, holds 4 bovates in Hucklowe for the custody of his bailiwick, worth 3s. yearly, and he claims all the same rights above as John and it is enquired whether he has taken other rights. Nicholas Foliambe, forester of the fee of the same bailiwick, holds 1 bovate in Wormehill for the custody of his bailiwick, worth 3s. yearly and nothing has been alienated and he claims the same rights as John. The same Nicholas is only just of age and has first had seisin of his bailiwick and therefore cannot have taken any further rights. Henry del Medoc had the custody of him from the King by the year and it is enquired whether he took other rights during such custody. Adam Counfrays and Thomas son of Thomas Foliambe, foresters of the fee of the same bailiwick, hold half a bovate, which bovate was once a serjeanty but was divided by two brothers. Each of them remains as it were, a servant ("serviens") for his part. And the bovate was so divided in ancient times on account of its value and for the proper keeping of the forest, and each of them ought to have all that pertains to the bailiwick as above and so they claim; and it is enquired whether Adam has taken other rights not belonging to his bailiwick. The said Thomas Foliambe holds a bovate of land which at one time was a serjeanty assigned for the capturing of wolves in the forest, and he is under age and Thomas de Gretton has the custody of him from the King. Which Thomas de Gretton, John de Wolfhunt ("Wolphin" in 12 below) and Thomas son of Thomas Foliambe hold one bovate which at one time was a serjeanty assigned for the capturing of wolves in the forest and was divided in ancient times so that each of them holds half a bovate (sic). That is the said John has his part by descent and Hugh de Moorehawe who at one time held the other part gave it to his daughter Katherine who later sold it to Thomas Foliambe. No rights belong to that serjeanty except the tenure of the land, and it ought not to be named among the bailiwicks of Champaigne. But in March and September they ought to go through the middle of the forest setting traps for wolves, where they gather, because it is not possible to hunt them by scent then (on account of the ditched ground) as well as at other times of the year and they shall also go in the forest in winter, about the feast of St. Barnabas, when the wolves have young, to capture and destroy them and not at other times. And then they shall have with them a groom to carry their engines, and they shall all be sworn and carry a hatchet and a gisarme and a knife within that area but not a bow and arrows and they shall have a mastiff with them which has been trained to this and not hambled and they shall be at their own expense and shall do nothing else in the forest. William de Trayoke holds one bovate by the custody of Trayock, nothing has been alienated from it and he has nothing for the custody of his bailiwick except his land.
Rights of the Foresters of Longdendale
Robert de Melner, Thomas Le Ragged de Berd, James Manneringe and Matilda de Wytfeld are Foresters of the Fee of the bailiwick of Longdendale and their ancestors were enfeoffed by William Peverell, Lord of the Peak. Robert de Melner holds one bovate in Melner for the custody of his bailiwick, worth 3s. yearly. His ancestors held two bovates belonging to the serjeanty of the said Bailiwick of which one was alienated in ancient times and is now held by Matthew de Kynewych, and renders 2s. yearly to Robert to do the office of the serjeanty. So that, as far as services, the serjeanty remains whole and claims all the rights belonging to the bailiwick as John Daniell and the others of the Champaigne. The Jurors say he has not acquired any other rights. Thomas le Ragged de Berd holds two bovates in Chisworth for the custody of his bailiwick. Nothing has been alienated and it is worth 6s. yearly and he has the same rights as the Foresters of the Champaigne. The Jurors say he has not acquired any other rights. James de Maynwarayn holds two bovates of ancient grant for the custody of his bailiwick. Nothing has been alienated and it is worth 6s. yearly. He has the same rights as Foresters of the Champaigne. The Jurors say that James has been a Forester there for three years, in which time he has sold windfall wood worth 4s. which did not belong to him. Matilda de Wytfeld holds two bovates at Wytfeld for the custody of her bailiwick.
Concerning the Rights of the Foresters of Hopedale
William Halley, Peter de Shatton, William le Eyr, Robert de Halstude, Robert Balgy, Roger Woderove and Peter le Hore ("Hope" in 12 below) are Foresters of the Fee of the bailiwick of Hopedale. Their ancestors were enfeoffed by William Peverell. William Halley holds two bovates for the custody of his bailiwick worth 6s. yearly. His ancestors held four bovates but two were alienated in ancient times by them and arrented to the King at 6s. He has the aforesaid rights as the Foresters of the Champaigne and of Longedendale except that he has neither a man nor a groom under him nor can any man act in his stead. He does nothing else for his bailiwick except service and rent. The jurors say that he has not acquired any other rights. Peter de Shatton holds two bovates in Shatton for the custody of his bailiwick worth 6s. yearly, his ancestors held four but alienated two in ancient times which arrented as above. He does nothing except service and rent and he has the same rights as William Halley. The Jurors say that he has not acquired any other rights. William le Eyr to whose custody belongs six bovates now only has one for the custody of his bailiwick as his ancestors alienated and arrented five. He ought to find a man for one day in autumn for maintenance work ("ad mentend") at the castle of the Peak who shall have one meal there ("qui semel debet comedere"); and he ought to do one plough-service at the castle in 40. He has the same rights aforesaid as William Halley. They say he does his service and has not acquired any other rights. Robert Balgy holds four bovates in Hope for the custody of his bailiwick. Nothing has been alienated and it is worth 4s. yearly. He does the service at the castle as aforesaid and has the same rights as William Halley. They say he does his service and has acquired no other rights. Roger Woderove Forester of the Fee holds two bovates for the custody of his bailiwick. He has alienated nothing and they are worth 6s. yearly. He does the aforesaid service at the Castle and has all the said rights. They say he does his service and has not acquired any other rights. Peter de Hore holds there one bovate in the custody of his bailiwick worth 3s. yearly. Nothing has been alienated and he does the aforesaid service at the castle and has all the aforesaid rights. They say he does the service and has not acquired any other rights. Robert de Hausted holds one and a half bovates there worth 4s.6d. yearly. His ancestors held two whole bovates but alienated half of one arrented at 18d. He does the aforesaid service and has not acquired any other rights. He is licensed by Letters Patent to make attornment. Seal of Henry VI, broken.
