Hello Harry
I can't give you the answer but I think I know a man who can! I'll pass your query on to him.

Hi Harry
Hoppe this answers your question, or points you in the right direction!
The first record is in 1607 Star Chamber records - Wheldontees
It is shown on Haywards 1614 Survey of Hartington Manor - Whildon tree.

I have a bit more info:
Further research shows there was a Whildon family in Earl Sterndale in 1614 and Edward was described as a copyholder and he had arable in Old and New Field in Earl Sterndale.
There are other Whildons mentioned in the 1614 survey. The survey plan shows a group of 3 buildings within the boundary of Whildon Trees and in the possession of Elizabeth and Richard Goodwin, apart from a small close occupied by Thomas Aire sic (presumably Eyre).
The fact that Whildon was a locative surname in 1614 implies there was indeed  residential buildings there some time before 1614.

I'ts a long time since your posting but I have only recently found the site; I hope you feel able to offer an opinion on my question.  Which is: Have you any idea who the owners of Wheeldon Trees may have been in the period around 1800?

The Gregory family were the occupiers around 1800 and I assumed the farm would be part of the Chatsworth estate but, in response to my enquiry, the Chatsworth Estate Office told me they had never owned the property.

Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Many thanks - David Gregory
