General Notes

Hartshead is a district in Kirklees – not Calderdale – and lies to the east of Brighouse.

The township is recorded as Hartshead-cum-Clifton in 1647.

Older forms of the name include Herteshede and Herteshevet, and mean the hill of Heort.

Charlotte Brontë used the name Nunnely for Hartshead in her novel Shirley

An old rhyme runs

Clifton stands on Calder banke,
    And Hartshead on a hill,
Kirkeleys stands within the dale,
    And many comes ther till.
