Does anyone know of Morris dance from Eyam "co. Derby". I came across the following in "The Gentlemans Magazine", vol 92, 1802, obituaries:

"At Eyam, co Derby, Edward Dooley, miner and musician. An oratorio had been announced to be performed the following Sunday for his benefit, as he was very poor and infirm. Too much anxiety and exertion in preparing for this happy occasion probably hastened [illegible], which unexpectedly took place on the evening before the intended performance. Bineg in company with some young men, who were rehearsing a Morris-dance which was to be held on the following Monday on the Edge, he suddenly laid down his fiddle, stretched himself, and expired."

I am sure many people with knowledge of Morris may answer, but being originally from the area and used to be in a band with a couple of local Morris musicians, I know there are indigenous dances from that area. The (fairly famous by Morris standards) Winster Gallop being from a village only a few miles away..

If Ian Russell, or anyone else from the Sheffield area is savvy to this, perhaps someone would email them.

Looks like it might have been related to Tideswell. In any case, it seems to have been mentioned in various studies, with a reference to dancing in 1895.

John Bentham or Jack Crawford might be able to help but I can't contact them just now, maybe later tonight. Keith Kendrick is another possibility and he visits Mudcat quite regularly (Derby Ram)

Still trying to define the dance however.

Careful now, one more iota of information and a whole 'tradition' will evolve

This reference from The Gentleman's Magazine was referred to in the important article in the Journal of the EFDSS in 1960, A Geographical Index of the Ceremonial Dance in Great Britain by Cawte, Helm, Peacock and Marriott. There are 3 other references to morris dance in Eyam, all by Sidney Oldall Addy, given in that 1960 index, with 1913 being given as the last date the morris dance was done in the village. I am not able to look up these 3 references, but in the late Dave Bathe's article on the Taddington, Derbyshire, morris dance, in the Folk Music Journal of 1985, he states that "few details of the [Eyam] dance are known". There are/were also morris dancers in Castleton, Tideswell and Winster.
