Subject: [DBY] Hatting in Hayfield
Date: Sat, 24 Jun 2000 11:34:57 +0100

I received a marriage certificate this morning for a relative who was living in Dinting, Hayfield in 1844. Most of his life before and after this date was spent in Denton, Lancashire where he worked as a hatter. I can only assume that his brief spell in Derbyshire was because of his work. Does anyone know if the Hayfield area had a hatting industry at this time?
