Osmaston by Derby St Osmund


The Parish

The parish of Osmaston (here given the suffix of "by Derby" to distinguish from the other Osmaston near Ashbourne) lies in southern Derbyshire and just over a mile from the city of Derby. Osmaston, once a small village, is now an integral part of the conurbation and has been absorbed totally into the metropolitan area. Osmaston would have sat close to the line of today's A514 road which connects Derby with Swadlincote, the term is today used to describe the whole suburb between the A514 and A6. Much of the area of the parish is taken up by the extensive works of Rolls Royce. At the time of this transcript Osmaston would have largely been a rural farming settlement, with a mixed rotational farming regime in place. The river Derwent lies just east of the parish and whilst most drainage is subsurface it is here that it is headed, the Derwent soon joins the Trent near Long Eaton and thence to the North Sea through the Humber Estuary. Osmaston is sited at around 50 metres above the sea on a low ridge between the two rivers, land rises gently westward to reach 100 metres in Derby's western suburbs. By Derbyshire standards Osmaston was tiny, it would have covered a mere 900 acres and supported just under 200 parishioners. In Domesday times Osmaston was held directly by King William, its assets were 6 ploughs, meadows & woodland and it possessed a mill.

The Church

The marriages recorded in this transcript would have taken place at the former church of All Saints, sadly no longer with us. Osmaston's present church of St Osmund is located adjacent to the busy A6 in an area of mixed light industrial and mid 20th century housing. Built in 1904 in brick it consists of the usual nave & chancel augmented by aisles, transept & clerestory. The church is not of great architectural interest for Pevsner who's account is strictly descriptive with no comment as to quality. London Road runs southeastwards and St Osmund is on the western side behind low brick walls.
