Cheshire Ancient Parishes

This is a grouping of the place names of parishes and townships on the main index page 
Cheshire Towns and Parishes 
to  indicate which places are associated with which ancient parishes in Cheshire.

This is intended as a guide only, please refer to notes on the individual place pages; care should be taken with modern parishes which may have a mixed 'pedigree'. 
Some places are associated with more than one ancient parish
Where a place name has ?? after it then its link to that ancient parish isn't confirmed by current available sources

"The Ancient Parishes of Cheshire refers to the group of parishes that existed in Cheshire, roughly within the period of 1200–1800. 
Initially, the ancient parishes had only an ecclesiastical function, but reforms initiated by King Henry VIII, developed by Queen Elizabeth I
and expanded by later legislation led them to acquire various secular functions that eventually led to a split between the ecclesiastical parishes and the purely civil parishes that exist today."
