Harby  Nottinghamshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Harby like this:

HARBY, a township-chapelry in North Clifton parish, Notts; adjacent to Lincolnshire, 3½ miles SW of Saxilby Junction r. station, and 8½ E by S of Tuxford. Posttown, Clifton, under Newark. Real property, £1, 936. Pop., 428. Houses, 98. The manor belongs to the Duke of Portland. A palace of Queen Eleanor was here, and was the place where she died; and the first of the crosses built to her memory by Edward I. was here, but has disappeared. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the vicarage of North Clifton, in the diocese of Lincoln. The church was recently repaired.
