"LEIGH (LITTLE), a chapelry in that part of the parish of GREAT-BUDWORTH which is in the hundred of BUCKLOW, county palatine of CHESTER, 3½ miles (N. W. by W.) from Northwich, containing 359 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Chester, endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £800 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Vicar of Great Budworth. The chapel is an ancient building, repaired in 1664 by the inhabitants, with the assistance of a small sum from the parishioners at large. Here is a place of worship for Baptists. There are some trifling donations for the education of children. The Grand Trunk canal passes in the vicinity." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
