Here is what Bagshaws directory of 1846 had to say about Brimington.

" BRIMINGTON, a parish and pleasant village on the Barlborough road, 2 miles N.E. from Chesterfield, to which parish it formerly was a chapelry. By an order in council dated 3rd September 1844, it was made a distinct parish for all civil and ecclesiastical purposes. It contains 1,148 acres of land, 165 houses and 780 inhabitants. Population in 1801, 503; in 1831 , 759. Rateable Value, £1,802. The commons were enclosed under an act passed in 1843. The church, St Michael, a neat structure with a tower and three bells, was re-built in 1808, partly by a rate, and subscriptions; the tower had been rebuilt in 1796, by Joshua Jebb, Esq.

The Methodists have a chapel, erected 1806, and the Primative Methodists one, erected 1835. In 1840 a national school was erected by subscription, aided by £26 from the National School Society, and £75 from the Committee of Council on Education.

Tapton Grove, a large modern mansion, on the verge of an abrupt declivity, at the foot of which a brook bounds the parish; it was erected by Avery Jebb, Esq., and is surrounded with a park, 1 1/2 miles N.E. from Chesterfield; it is the seat and property of John Meynell, Esq., who keeps a pack of hounds."


Present day Brimington really comprises three parts.
