      The plague or "the Black Death" occurred over hundreds of years and were results of infested rats coming over on boats returning from the Orient. The plagues swept over Europe and England, Derby was not immune. According to church records, " the plague began in Derby October 1592, in the house of William Sowter, bookseller." William Sowter is the brother of Thomas Sowter, the father of Thomas and Phillippa, who married William Oldham. Plague struck the town of Derby again in 1636 and I believe that it is no coincidence that William Oldham and his son, Thomas both died from its results that same year. Lancastreshire was afterwards shortened to Lancashire.
