"CHELFORD, a chapelry in the parish of PRESTBURY, hundred of MACCLESFIELD, county palatine of CHESTER, 5¼ miles (S. E. by E.) from Knutsford, containing 203 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Chester, endowed with £600 private benefaction, and £600 royal bounty, and in the patronage of Mr. Parker. The chapel was rebuilt in 1776. Five roads meet in the village; and the Birtles and Henbury brooks unite immediately below the chapel, forming a fine sheet of water, which empties itself into a brook called Peover-leye. A school was built by the late Rev. John Parker, who endowed it with about £17 per annum." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
