Administrative / biographical background:

John Borowe (1635-1707) bought the Hough estate in Hulland after 1690. He was married to Mary Rawlinson. They had three children. Their eldest son, Isaac Borrow, became Mayor of Derby in 1730 and rebuilt its Town Hall. He married Mary Tempest in 1702. They had one son, John Tempest.


John Tempest Borrow (1702-1780) became the proprietor of Hulland, Hough, Musden, Alsop and Hanson Grange estates. He built the new Hulland Hall in 1777. He subsequently willed the estates to his half-nephew John Borrow (1746-1825).


Following Mary's death, Isaac married Honor Burton in 1708. She was the heiress to her brother Robert of Hanson Grange, and lands in Thorpe, Morley and the parish of St. Peter's, Derby. She died circa 1752.


Together they had two sons and two daughters. Thomas Borrow of Castlefields (1709-1786) married Anne, daughter of John Alt of Loughborough in 1757. She died in circa 1801. His brother, John (born 1710), also married an Ann, who died in 1799. Of their two sisters, Ann married Thomas Bainbrigge and Honor married Philip Gell.


Upon his death, John Borrow willed the properties to his cousin, Thomas Borough of Castlefields (d 1838). He attended University College, Oxford. He became a barrister at the Middle Temple, and then a captain in the Leicestershire Militia. He moved to Chetwynd Park in 1803 and changed the family name to Borough. He married Jane daughter of William Smithson of Ferrybridge, Yorkshire. Jane died in 1853. The lands then passed to their son, John Charles Burton Borough. JCB Borough's sister Jane married George Hill. Jane bought these lands from her brother in 1847. She also gave birth to Anna Honora, who died in 1852, and to two children who also died in their infancy.
