"BRAMHALL, a township in the parish of STOCKPORT, hundred of MACCLESFIELD, county palatine of CHESTER, 3 miles (S. by W.) from Stockport, containing 1359 inhabitants. The lord of this manor, in conjunction with the lords of the manors of Bredbury, Brinnington, and Norbury, has, from time immemorial, appointed the churchwardens of the parish. The manorial mansion is a curious ancient edifice of timber and brick, plaistered over, standing on elevated ground: at the south-east angle is the domestic chapel, apparently of the time of Richard III., having a flat panelled roof, and a considerable quantity of painted glass in the windows, and containing several deceased members of the family of Davenport."
