Darnall

DARNALL, a hamlet, in the parish and union of Sheffield, S. division of the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill, W. riding of York, 3 miles (S. E.) from Sheffield, on the road to Worksop. This place contains about 1200 inhabitants, engaged in the collieries, in agricultural labour, and the manufacture of cutlery. The Hall, built by the Staniforths, was the residence of that family for several generations, and afterwards a seat of the late Duke of Norfolk's. A church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was erected in 1841, at the cost of nearly £2700, raised by subscription; the living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of Trustees, with a net income of £150.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
