Gazetteers

1868 - The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland

"COLLIN'S GREEN, a hamlet in the parish of Poulton-le-Fylde, in the county of Lancaster, 2 miles W. of Newton, and 18 miles from Manchester. It is a station on the Liverpool and Manchester railway, and is near Parr Moss."

This (Poulton le Fylde) seems to be an error in the gazetteer. It is likely to have been a reference to Poulton with Fearnhead.

1868 - The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland

"BURTON WOOD, a chapelry in the parish of Warrington, hundred of West Derby, in the county palatine of Lancaster, 4 miles to the N.W. of Warrington, its post town. The Liverpool and Manchester railway passes near it. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Chester, worth £96, in the gift of the Rector of Warrington. There is an endowed school with an income of £12 a year."
