Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for 1828-9 – Quorndon entries

“Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for 1828-9
Comprising a directory and classification of the merchants, bankers, professional gentleman, manufacturers and traders”

This directory covers 16 English counties and North Wales. The following introduction, names and professions were extracted for Quorndon

"Quorndon, a village and chapelry, in the parish of Barrow upon Soar, is about 2 miles from Loughborough, containing one church under the establishment, and a chapel each for the Wesleyan and primitive Methodists, and for the general Baptists. The living of the church is a perpetual curacy, in the incumbency of the Rev. J W R Boyer. The prosperity and increased population of the village are derived from the successful introduction of stocking weaving and manufacture of warp and bobbin twist lace, which employs a great portion of the inhabitants; the number of which, in 1821 (including Woodhouse chapelry) amounted to 2570 persons."
