Some history of Diseworth

More information on Diseworth to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Diseworth from another page. As the website is constructed it is easier to create links as they crop up rather than retracing steps later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Diseworth. I have uploaded a photograph and newspaper article and will return to this page when possible. There is material on other places in Leicestershire - click here for the county page where I hope you will find something of interest.

Quotation

A Halted Mail Coach by Henry Thomas Alken [The British Postal Museum and Archive]

"At each Inn on the road I a welcome could find; At the Fleece I'd my skin full of ale; The Two Jolly Brewers were just to my mind; At the Dolphin I drink like a wheale. Tom Tun at the Hogshead sold pretty good stuff; They'd capital flip at the Boar; And when at the Angel I'd tippled enough, I went to the Devil for more."
Mail Coach Guard

Newspaper Articles

"An inquest was held on Thursday, before Mr. Coroner Deane, at Diseworth, touching the death of William Archer, son of Samuel Archer, a farm labourer, Kegworth. John Palmer, of Scaffacre Farm, Diseworth, said deceased was 15 years of age, and was a farm servant in witness's service. About nine o'clock on Wednesday morning witness sent him into a wheat and oat field in charge of a horse drawing a roller, with instructions to roll it. Witness went to work in another field not very far off. About 12.30 he went to see how the boy was getting on, and found him lying on the ground, face downwards, with the roller on him, lying on his shoulders and neck and head, having passed all up his body. He was quite dead. Reuben Else, a farm labourer, said he spoke to the deceased about midday. A verdict of accidental death was returned."
