Where is / was Malcalf in Derbyshire?
« on: Wednesday 10 July 19 16:38 BST (UK) »
I have a quantity of old documents going back to the 17th century, and in the 18th century the village or farmstead of Malcalf in the High Peak area of Derbyshire keeps popping up. But I cannot locate where this was ... is anyone able to offer suggestions?

Possibly the group of buildings called “Malcoff” - just NE of Chapel-en-le-Frith (on the road from Wash to Slackhall).

Edit - not the direct road that goes through Bowden Hall, the narrower one to the north of that.

That's absolutely brilliant, thanks everyone.
Medpat these papers all relate to the Barber family, and claims by various people to his million pound estate which, as it turned out, had already been distributed shortly after his death.
Malcoff .... I would never in a million years have Googled that to solve the problem ...  :)
