One book, three centuries: Derby Canal Company minutes arrive

We have just received a single volume containing Derby Canal Company minutes from the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  As you can see from these pictures, they start with the inaugural “General Assembly” in 1793, and end with the 150th such assembly in 1940.  Just for good measure, we have included shots of the meetings held 100 and 200 years ago.  Isn’t it amazing that they kept recording the same type of information in the same way for such a long period of time?

As ever, if you want to see this stuff, just contact us and we will arrange it.  (See “Visiting Us” on www.derbyshire.gov.uk/recordoffice).  The reference number to quote is D5751/4/1 for the minute book, or D5751/5/1 for a book containing copies of the company’s deeds.  We have also taken in another volume of Cromford Canal boat permits (D501 B/B 67).
