Background to this publication

Hepworth is a small village to the south east of the small town of Holmfirth in West Yorkshire. A significant number of documents and plans relating to the Shaw Family of Hepworth were donated to the Huddersfield & District Family History Society in 2017 and this list of Claims of Proprietors was included amongst them.All proprietors of land and property within the township of Hepworth under the Graveship of Holme Inclosure Act were invited to submit their claims in 1828 and following the due legal procedure the final awards were published in 1834. The claim numbers, owners’ names, description of lands together with the areas (in acres, roods and perches) and tenants’ names and the type of tenure are included. The tenures indicated are Copyhold “Compertor’ (ascertained) or Copyhold ‘Undis’ (undisputed) or ‘Freehold’. This booklet provides a fascinating snapshot of Hepworth and District in 1828. All the lands and properties within the township are listed in alphabetical order of the owners with the plan references given in Column 1. The detailed descriptions also give some of the individual field names. The exact areas of each of the properties and fields are given in acres (A), roods (R) and perches (P). One rood is an area equal to one quarter of an acre (i.e. 1,012 m2) and a perch as a unit of area apparently varied in different parts of the country (approximately 25 sq m). It has been possible to transcribe and publish this document, along with a separate booklet containing a Valuation of Freehold and Copyhold Estates for the Township of Hepworth, thanks to National Lottery players whose generosity enabled the receipt of a grant from the Sharing Heritage Lottery Fund to finance this project.

THE ENCLOSURE (INCLOSURE) ACTS

These were a series of Acts of Parliament that empowered enclosure of open and common land. This created property rights to lands, some of which had previously been held in common and under the control of the Lord of the Manor. People deemed to have rights to land were invited to claim enclosure through the Act of Parliament. This was done in Hepworth from 1828 to 1834. This then formally created legal property rights. The Lord of the Manor, Freeholders, Copyholders and Tenants were all affected in varying degrees and with varying levels of support. The Act gave tenants and copyholders legally enforceable rights and in some cases Compensation was paid so many tenants supported the Act.
