Went with Mr Robinson to Matlock
26 July
Went to Ensor Inn to see the Duke of Devonshires House & Gardins & went back to Matlock, gave to see the House and Gardens my share 2/6 Spt at Inn 18d

Ensor is a contraction of Edensor – it is pronounced Enzor according to the Derbyshire Web Site. The village was moved by the Duke of Devonshire and all the houses bar one date from around 1840 & I can't find a picture of that house.

28 July
Left Matlock Earley in the morning and cost me and Horse their 12d
Went to Kedleston & Dined at Inn & went a futt to Ireton to see Lady Coursens Folley which is one mile from Kedleston & got to Nottingham that night & cost 3/6

Thomas must refer to the Ireton which names Ireton Lodge, which is, indeed one mile from Kedleston.
