Trade Directories describe Belper as head of a County Court district until 1887 and as head of Belper and Ilkeston from 1891 until 1925. In 1928, Belper is said to be in the Derby County Court District. Ilkeston was described as lying within Belper County Court district from 1881, but by 1925 was said to be head of the Ilkeston "side" of Belper and Ilkeston County Court. In 1928 it was said to be head of a County Court District.
The modern County Courts were established under an Act of 1846 intended to create courts for the easier recovery of small debts. Successive Acts added considerably to the County Courts' powers of jurisdiction.
The Ilkeston County Court was closed in February 1996 and its business transferred to Nottingham Combined Court.
