A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Hulland from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"HULLAND, a village and two townships in Ashborne parish, and a chapelry partly also in Wirksworth parish, Derby. The village stands on an eminence, 5 miles E by N of Ashborne [railway] station; and has pleasant environs.
"The townships are Hulland Ward and Hulland Ward Intakes. Acres: 1,871. Real property: £3,965. Population: 330 and 44. Houses: 80 and 7. The land consists chiefly of dairy farms.
"Population of the chapelry: 639. Post town: Ashborne. The living is a [perpetual] curacy in the diocese of Lichfield. Value: £75. Patrons: the Rev.Evans and Borough, Esq. The church is in the pointed style. There are chapels for Wesleyans and Primitive Methodists, and a national school."

Hulland is a village and civil parish in the Derbyshire Dales District of Derbyshire, England, adjoining the A517 road. It had a population of 215 according to the 2011 UK census.

Hulland [civil] parish was a sub parish of the Ashbourne Registration District until 1901. Hulland was also an ancient township in Ashbourne parish, but became a separate, modern civil parish in December 1886. (A Vision of Britain through Time gives this date as 1866.)

Hulland Ward and Hulland Ward Intakes became separate civil parishes and have therefore been treated separately. See this map] for their comparative locations.

Research Tips

  • British History Online (Victoria County Histories) does not appear to cover Derbyshire geographically. A History of the County of Derby: Volume 2, edited by William Page is a part-volume covering the religious houses of the county. No further volumes have been found.
  • GENUKI main page for Derbyshire which provides information on various topics covering the whole of the county, and also a link to a list of parishes. Under each parish there is a list of the settlements within it and brief description of each. This is a list of pre-1834 ancient or ecclesiastical parishes but there are suggestions as to how to find parishes set up since then. GENUKI provides references to other organizations who hold genealogical information for the local area. There is no guarantee that the website has been kept up to date and therefore the reader should check additional sources if possible.
  • The FamilyTree Wiki has a series of pages similar to those provided by GENUKI which may have been prepared at a later date and from more recent data. The wiki has a link to English Jurisdictions 1851 which gives the registration district and wapentake for each parish, together with statistics from the 1851 census for the area.
  • A Vision of Britain through Time, Derbyshire, section "Units and Statistics" leads to analyses of population and organization of the county from about 1800 through 1974. There are pages available for all civil parishes, municipal boroughs and other administrative divisions. Descriptions provided are usually based on a gazetteer of 1870-72 which often provides brief notes on the economic basis of the settlement and significant occurences through its history.
  • These two maps indicate the boundaries between parishes, etc., but for a more detailed view of a specific area try a map from this selection. The oldest series are very clear at the third magnification offered. Comparing the map details with the GENUKI details for the same area is well worthwhile.
