The Pursgloves of Tissington - [TISS]

Tidsige's ton (Old English) was a farmstead which was developed into a village with the building of Tissington Hall in 1609, the seat of the Fitzherbert family.  The church was built in the Norman style when the land was owned by Henri de Ferrières after the Norman Conquest.

The estate village inhabitants serviced the Hall and its farmland.  Tissington is well known for its well dressing and it is a picturesque tourist village today.
