Details of Edge of Strelley
Title: Edge of Strelley
Reference: 157 DD/E

The collection relates to the Edge family's estates in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire. It comprises deeds, estate and family papers, legal and household papers and of particular note are the papers concerning coal mining in Strelley in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (DD/E/28/23-40, DD/E/46/80). The series of financial papers includes personal, household, farm, and estate annual bundles of accounts, receipts and vouchers, and some correspondence, 1738-1817 (DD/E/1). Accounts from London and Edinburgh as well as Nottingham are contained in this series.


Among the personal papers are many relating to Thomas Musgrave, Archbishop of York, 1847-1860, (DD/E/212-220). These papers are believed to have come into the collection via a family connection, namely a marriage between Francis Ethelreda Musgrave and Lewis Kekewich Edge of Strelley in 1886 and include correspondence with many prominent people including Viscount Melbourne, Lord John Russell and Sir George Grey 1807-1864, (DD/E/215/1-127). One letter of note is that recording his reflections arising out of a grand tour in 1815 at the time of Napoleon's defeat, (DD/E/213/13).


There is a small series of papers relating to the Nottinghamshire Lent Assizes, 1790 (DD/E/3/14-16), which includes a calendar of prisoners, a grand jury list and a summons for TW Edge to serve on the grand jury. Two series of shrievalty papers, 1708-1904, (DD/E/12/1-11) and 1722-1782 (DD/E/207-208) include material concerning the appointment of Thomas Webb in 1722 and John Webb in 1781 to the office of sheriff of Warwick.


Of particular interest are the records of meteorological observations made at Strelley Hall, 1863-1976, (DD/E/211/1-47) and a purse-string pattern book c.1654 (DD/E/222/3). The collection also contains a series of papers relating to the pedigree and genealogy of the Edge family, 1707-1978 (DD/E/209-210.

The majority of the records were held at Strelley Hall prior to their deposit in Nottinghamshire Archives. The documents were deposited in several instalments: the first was made in 1950 (accession 85) and was followed by ones in 1951, 1952, and 1957. In 1979 a further large deposit was received from the family solicitors.
