Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory 1835, Quorndon entries

“Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for 1835
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 is a neat and thriving village and chapelry, in the parish of Barrow upon Soar, in the same hundred as Loughborough, rather more than two miles from that town; situate at the foot of bold and rugged hills, forming part of the extensive range constituting Charnwood Forest. From the eminences, a varied and extensive prospect is obtained over a fertile and picturesque country. The prosperity and increasing population of the village are derived from the branches of stocking-weaving, and the manufacture of warp and bobbin-twist lace, which have been introduced here with great success at one of the principal establishments (Messrs Balm and Rothwells) is produced a beautiful article, called the Tatting and Mechlin lace. Machinery is also manufactured here by the Messrs Archers, who have erected a steam engine for that purpose. The places of worship are the episcopal chapel, dedicated to St Bartholomew, and one each for primitive and Wesleyan Methodists. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the vicar of Barrow: the Rev Robert Stammers is the present curate. A National School and an apprenticeship fund are the principal charities. The chapelry contained, in 1821, 1,503 inhabitants, and in 1831, 1752”
