The Pursgloves of Cotmanhay - [COTM]

This village is in the Erewash Borough to the north of Ilkeston.  The industry shifted from agricultural to textiles and mining in the 18th and 19th Centuries.  Today this village is a suburb of Ilkeston.

The parish church was demolished in 1983 when it was found to be damaged by mining subsidence and pastoral duties are directed from Ilkeston.  Christ Church Cotmanhay now has a new Church Hall near to the old church site.



Jonathan Pursglove [809] married Selena Wright on 5/2/1872
