"ALVANLEY, a chapelry in the parish of FRODSHAM, second division of the hundred of EDDISBURY, county palatine of CHESTER, 3 miles (S. S. W.) from Frodsham, containing 284 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Chester, and in the patronage of J. Arden, Esq. The chapel is dedicated to St. Mary: from 1787 till within these few years the performance of divine service was discontinued in it, in consequence of the smallness of the minister's income. Alvanley gives the title of baron to the Arden family." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
