Harrods Directory 1870 – Quorndon entries

Trade directories are a valuable source of information for both the local and family historian. Below is the Quorndon section from Harrods directory for Leicestershire for 1870.

“Quorndon is a parish and village distant 2 ¼ miles from Loughborough, and 1 from Barrow-on-Soar station, in the north division of the county, hundred of West Goscote, union of Barrow-on-Soar, county court district of Loughborough, diocese of Peterborough, archdeaconry of Leicester, and rural deanery of Akerley. Quorndon has for more than a century been noted as the station of the celebrated Hunt which bears its name. Quorn Hall was purchased in 1750 by Hugo Meynell, from Earl Ferrers. And has since been occupied by the successive masters of the Hunt, the last of whom was the late Sir Richard Sutton, Bart. This gentleman kept here about seventy horses of high value. The hall is now the property and the residence of Edward Warner Esq. JP, of the firm of Cartwright and Warners, Loughborough. Buddon wood contains a granite quarry, which resembles that of Mount Sorrel. The bilberry is very abundant, covering many acres. The principle trade of this place is the manufacturer of plain and fancy hosiery, in which Messrs Webster & Son and Mr John Moore carry on an extensive business and give employment to a large number of hands. The township contains about 2130 acres of land and about 1700 inhabitants. Edward Basil Farnham, W P Herrick and Edward Warner, Esqs., are the principal landowners. The Marchioness of Lanesborough is the lady of the manor. The church, dedicated to St Bartholomew (a dependency of Barrow), is of great antiquity. It has a tower and six bells, and was restored in 1865, at a cost of £2000. The living is a vicarage, annual value £122, with residence, in the gift of the Bishop of Peterborough. The Rev Robert Stammers, MA is the vicar. The General Baptists, Primitive Methodists, Wesleyans and Reform Methodists have each a chapel here. Here is also a National school for boys and girls, John Harrison master, Miss Corlett infants’ mistress. Gas-works were erected in 1853, Mr Joseph Camm general manger and secretary; George Cole working manager. Postal regulations – Thomas Freeman sub-postmaster. Letters arrive at 7.30 am, are dispatched at 6 pm. The nearest money-order and telegraph office is at Mount Sorrel. Post-town, Loughborough. Superintendent-registrar of births, deaths and marriages for the Barrow-on-Soar union district, Joseph Camm. Carriers to Leicester, Charles Lovett – Wednesday and Saturday; Charles Marson – Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. To Loughborough, Charles Lovett – daily."
