The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Chester, endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £200 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Vicar of Sandbach. Thomas Hall, Esq., in 1708, gave a rent-charge of £14 for the instruction of boys and girls, which, in 1713, he augmented with another of £4, 10., for clothing them. There is also a small sum, the gift of Josiah Dean, for teaching and apprenticing one boy." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
