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.

Contents:
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 I THE ANTIQUARIAN COLLECTION  [no ref. or date]

Archival history:
The following groups of documents were acquired, mainly by purchase, for their antiquarian interest. The provenance of some of the groups is unknown. The most outstanding group consists of the deeds and papers of The Eyres of Hassop, which form a complete archive group by themselves.

A. THE EYRES OF HASSOP  [no ref. or date]

Archival history:
In December 1918 the estate was sold and these documents were purchased by Mr. E. G. Bagshawe.

Administrative history:
The Eyres were an important and numerous family in Derbyshire in the Middle Ages. The Hassop branch, traced back to Stephen Eyre of Hassop in the 15th century, became prominent in the 16th, particularly during the lifetime of Rowland Eyre who married one of Humphrey Stafford's co-heirs and acquired the manor of Rowland. The family were recusants and during the Civil War, delinquents. In the 19th century, Francis Eyre, the owner of the estate, succeeded to the titular earldon of Newburgh. The male line died out in the later 19th century.

Bibliography: Note: The Eyres of Hassop are the subject of the following article based on these deeds:-
