Published Sources

Much of the information has been taken from A Short History of The Village and Church of Rolleston, Nottinghamshire, with extracts from the Early Parish Registers (1931), compiled by E H S Longhurst assisted by E B Freckingham, and used with the permission of Mr Longhurst.

Mr Longhurst, son of a vicar of the parish, conducted extensive research into the history of the church and village from the 1930s onwards. He drew up many family trees from data he collated from the parish registers from about 1560 onwards, as well as distilling information from the hand written diaries and registers of clergy and churchwardens. He also researched the constables’ records for the village. When Mr Longhurst died at the age of 103, he gave his research documents and permission for his research to be published to Mr Frank Mitchell, a long term resident of the village.
