STAPENHILL, township and pleasant village on the east bank of the Trent, 1 mile E. b. S. from Burton-upon-Trent, contains 1,647 acres of fertile land, 132 houses, and 577 inhabitants, of whom 267 were males and 310 females.  The Marquis of Anglesey is lord of the manor and principal owner, and Henry Clay, Esq., is a considerable owner.  The church, St Peter, is a vicarage, valued in the King’s Books at £5 6s. 0½d., now £395.  The Marquis of Anglesey is patron and impropriator, and the Rev. John Clay, M.A., incumbent.  The church, on an elevated situation, is a small neat structure, built on the site of a delapidated edifice in 1840, at the sole expense of the vicar.  The old chancel still remains.  The vicarage house was rebuilt at the same time, by the respected vicar, who resides in a handsome mansion near the church.  The tithes were commuted in 1841 for £147 to the impropriator, smalll to the vicar, who has 80A. of glebe situate at Stanton.  The parish of Burton, which extends to the east side of the Trent, is much intermixed with this parish and village, about one-fourth part of the township being in Burton parish, with part of the village.  The church was appropriated to the monastery of Burton, to which it had been given by the Abbot Briteric along with the manor.  Henry VIII. gave these to the collegiate church he had founded on the site of the dissolved monastery, which being soon afterwards dissolved, the manors of Stapenhill and Caldwell were granted in 1545 to Sir William Paget.  The Rev. John Hieron, an eminent nonconformist divine and critic, who made collections towards a history of Derbyshire, was born at Stapenhill in 1608.  The Methodists have a small chapel.  A convenient national school has been erected near the church ; about 40 boys and 30 girls attend.  Here is an infant school.  Brizlingcote Hall, now a farm house, 1 mile E. from the church, is an ancient mansion in a commanding situation, with fine avenues of trees.  It contains 295 acres of land, the property of the Earl of Chesterfield.

CALDWELL, township, chapelry, and small village, 5 miles S.b. E. from Burton-upon-Trent, contains 1,040 acres of land, 30 houses, and 153 inhabitants.  Rateable value, £1,783.  Miss Evans is lady of the manor and considerable owner.  Lady Sophia des Voeux, Mr Thomas Pratt, with the Etwall and Repton corporation, are owners - the latter having 160 acres.  The Chapel of Ease is a small structure, with a tower and two bells, and was completely renovated in 1843, with funds partly given by the vicar, and partly by subscription.  The tithes have been commuted for £140, paid to the vicar.  The Baptists have a small chapel.  The manor of Caldwell was sold by William Lord Paget, in 1565, to Peter Collingwood, Esq., from whose family it passed by successive marriages to those of Sanders and Mortimer.  Hans Winthorpe Mortimer, son of Dr Cromwell Mortimer, secretary to the Royal Society, sold it to Henry Evans, Esq., of Burton-upon-Trent.  The Hall is a neat mansion, the seat of Miss Rebecca Evans.

STANTON and NEWHALL form a joint township and chapelry, which, together, contain 1,613 acres of land, 342 houses, and 1,533 inhabitants, of whom 780 were males and 753 females.  Population in 1801, 798 ; in 1831, 1,182 ; rateable value £2,464.  Stanton, a small scattered hamlet forming the western side of the township, in which the Earl of Chesterfield and William Blake, Esq., are the principal owners.  Newhall, hamlet and large village, 3 miles S. b. E. from Burton-upon-Trent.  Earl of Chesterfield, William Blake, Esq., and Joseph and Nathaniel Nadins, Esqs. are joint lords of the manor, and owners, besides whom here are many small owners.  The church, a handsome Gothic structure with a tower and four pinnacles, built of brick, was opened for divine service, 9th July 1832, for a surrounding district.  It was erected at the sole expense of the Rev. John Clay, the vicar of Stapenhill, at a cost of £7,000, including a neat parsonage house and commodious schoolrooms.  The church will seat 500 persons, and is endowed with £2,000, and is in the patronage of the founder.  The Rev. Roger Burton, B.A., is the curate.  The school is supported by subscription.  The Methodists have a commodious chapel, erected in 1816 and enlarged in 1844.  Here is a bed of coal of superior quality, extending over 2,000 acres, and 24 feet thick, which generally fetches the highest price in the market.  Messrs Joseph and Nathaniel Nadins work the collieries.  A superior clay is found in the coal mines, from which a neat straw or cane-coloured earthenware is manufactured, of which great quantities are exported to America and other parts.  The manors of Newhall, Stanton Ward, and Heathcote Ward, belonged, in the reign of Edward I., to the family of Ward, from whom they passed to the Meynells, Dethicks, Dareys, Phillips, and others, by marriage.  The Earl of Chesterfield purchased two shares, and the remainder having passed into the Stanhope family, Earl Stanhope and his son sold their portion in parcels.  There was formerly a chapel at Newhall, which was given by William the Conqueror to Burton Abbey.
