"CRANAGE, a township in that part of the parish of SANDBACH which is in the hundred of NORTHWICH, county palatine of CHESTER, 3¾ miles (E. N. E.) from Middlewich, containing 433 inhabitants. Thomas Hall, Esq. erected two schoolrooms here, one of which he endowed with £10 per annum, for ten boys, and the other with £4 per annum, for ten girls, all of them being partly clothed. In the reign of Henry VI. a bridge of stone was erected across the river Dane, at the expense of Sir John Nedham, but a few years ago it gave place to the present structure, which is built of wood, from a design by Mr. Harrison, of Chester."
