Shirley Hall Farm
The Farm was sold in 1858 and consisted of about 16½ acres. The tenant, William Goodall, farmed about 126 acres in total.
Building works, significant enough to advertise for bricklayers and labourers in the Derby Mercury, were being carried out in 1859.
The 1900 Brailsford and District Ploughing And Hedge-Cutting Society's competition was held here.
The farm was available from Lady Day 1904 for a rent of £230 and again in 1922 for £2 an acre.
Below are the tenants I know about:
|1860||1861||William Hustwayte||1862||1877||Francis Porter|
|1900||1911||George D Lucas|
|1922||J P Bingham|
The dates are where there is evidence of occupation.
