PREFACE. 



The present volume contains abstracts of the Marriage 
Registers of Alderley, Bosley, Capesthorne, Chelford, Marton, 
Poynton-cum- Worth, Siddington and Pott Shrigley. It also 
brings the Marriages at Taxal, down to 1837, as when 
those Registers were dealt with previously (in Vol I.) they 
stopped at 181 2. All the above places were anciently 
Chapelries of the enormous parish of Prestbury and have 
at one time or another been separated from it, Prestbury 
parish now retaining only the Chapelries or townships of 
Kettleshulme, Saltersford, Lyme and Adlington. There are 
are no old Registers belonging to Adlington. Saltersford 
Registers are kept at Prestbury and contain no Marriages. 
With the Registers given in this volume Macclesfield now 
remains the only other Chapelry of this enormous parish 
which has any Marriage Registers not printed. These we 
hope to deal with in the next volume, after which we hope 
to continue the Prestbury Marriages from the date (17S9) 
at which they were discontinued in Vol. IV. Marriages 
occurring before and after the ratnge-dates of the various 
Chapelry Registers must be sought for in the Registers of 
Prestbury, the " Mother Church." 

The abstracts here printed are entirely the work of Mr. 
Leopold Choice. 

The thanks of the Subscribers are due to the Incumbents 
for permission to make and print the abstracts. Their names 
are mentioned under their respective parishes. 

The chief contractions used are : w.=widow or widower ; 
p.=parish of; /zV.=married by licence. 



It should be remembered that previous to 2-752 the year 
was calculated as beginning on the 25th of March, instead 
of the 1st of January, so that a marriage tdking place on 
say 20th February, 1625, would be on that <3ate in 1626, 
according to our reckoning ; but as the civil a.nd ecclesias- 
tical year were both used, this is sometimes expressed by 
20th Feb., 162*. 

In all cases where the marriage is stated tto have taken 
place by Licence, that fact is recorded, as the searcher 
thereby knows that further information as to the age, 
parentage and vocation of the parties is pralnably recover- 
able from the Allegations in the Archdearxaoiry or other 
office from which the Licence issued. 

After 1753 it is to be assumed that all pastnes not other- 
wise described are stated to be of the horse parish, and 
bachelor and spinster respectively. 

It might be well to remind the reader thit these printed 
abstracts of the Registers are not legal "residence." For 
certificates application must be made to the local clergy.

Marriages at Alderley, 

1629 to 1837. 

Xote. — The Parish of Alderley comprises the Townships of Over 
Alderley, Nether Alderley and Great Warford. In early times it 
formed a part of the vast parish of Prestbury, to which it was 
styled a " Parochial Chapelry " [and therefore probably a part and 
parcel of the Abbey of St. Werburgh in Chester], but no record 
of its dismemberment from the Mother Church exists — " Notuia 
Cestriensis." 

The Church, which is situated in Nether Alderley, is dedicated 
to St. Mary, but it would appear from the " Institution Book " that 
it was formerly called St. Laurence, so styled in 1536 when Pech3m 
held the right of presentation to the living. 

Amongst the many noted rectors of Alderley may be mentioned 
Edward Stanley, whose baptism is recorded in the registers, 21 Feb.. 
1779. He was presented by his father, Sir John Stanley, Bart., to 
the living in 1805, which he held and resided at Alderley until his 
appointment to the Bishopric of Norwich in 1S37. He was a ready- 
writer and his work on British birds is an authority. His second 
son, Arthur Penrhyn, will be remembered as the much-loved Dean 
Stanley, of Westminster. 

The Marriage registers for the period under review number 
four. Volume I. contains 133I parchment leaves, measuring 16 by 7 
inches, bound in leather-covered boards. It records the Baptisms, 
Marriages and Burials from 1629 to 1760, and " Banns of Marriage " 
from 1754 to 1761. The volume requires rebinding, otherwise it is 
in good condition. From the commencement to the year 1732 the 
entries have been well recorded in Latin and only in a few peaces 
is the ink at all faded. It will be noticed that during the Common- 
wealth a fair number of Civil Marriages is given, but there does 
not appear to be any note of the appointment of a " Register." 

Volume II. is the usual printed form as directed under Lord 
Hardwicke's Marriage Act of 1754. This register records the 
Marriages from 1754 to 1806. 

Volume III. is the usual printed form, as in volume II., and 
records the Marriages from 1807 to 1S12.

Volume IV. is the usual printed form, as required by the Rose 
Act, 52 Geo. III., c. 146, and records the Marriages from 1813 to 

1837- 

This Transcript has been made and contributed to this series 
by Mr. Leopold Choice, and is now printed by leave of the Rev. 
Cecil B. Wcli.ind, M.A., rector of Aldeiley.

Cheshire — V. 



Marriages at Bosley, 

1729 to 1750. 

Note. — This ancient chapelry, situated on the border of 
Cheshire and Staffordshire, was, until about the middle of the last 
century, a part of the extensive parish of Prestbury. 

The registers do not commence, however, until the year 172S, 
with the institution of the Rev. John [or Jonathan] Thornley to the 
curacy. He signs each page of the register to the year 1764— the 
year previous to his death. It is stated that until a vicarage could be 
built for him Thornley lived in the Church tower. 

The first register records the Baptisms and Burials from 1728 to 
1788, and Marriages from 1729 to 1750. The volume consists of 7S 
paper leaves, measuring 12J by 8 inches, enclosed in eather 
covered boards, and it requires rebinding. Apart from the usual 
entries this volume contains much miscellaneous information. 

Volume II. comprises 29 parchmerjt leaves. 13 of which are blank, 
enclosed in calf-covered boards. This register records the Baptisms 
and Burials from 1788 to 1812, and is headed:— '-The Register of the 
Christenings and Burials at Bosley in the parish of Prestbury and 
County and Diocese of Chester, commencing January the thirteenth 
one thousand, seven hundred and eighty-eight." 

Records of Marriages of Bosley persons other than those given in 
the following pages must be looked for in the registers of Prestbury. 

These records have been transcribed by Mr. Leopold Choice, 
and are now printed by ;Ieave of the Rev. G. E. O'Brien, M.A., 
vicar of Bosley.

Marriages at Capesthorne, 

1722 to 1747. 

Note. — Bishop Gastrell, in his "Notitia Ce-triensis," collected 
during his Visitation of the Diocese, " circa " 1720, write; of Capes- 
thorne : — "This is a new Chappell, lately built by John Ward, Esq., 
who has gi%'en all the Tyths of this Township towards its Augment- 
ation." 

The Chapel was and still is attached to Capesthorne Hall, and 
was made extra-parochial to the parish church of Prestbury. In 1855 
Capesthorne was united to Siddington to form one ecclesiastical 
parish. 

The earliest register is a volume measuring 12.$ by 6£ inches, 
containing 5S parchment leaves, 35 of which are unused, and 3 paper 
leaves, enclosed in calf-boards. It records the Baptisms from 1722 to 
1812 ; Marriages from 1722 to 1747 and Burials from 1722 to 1S12. 
The entries in this and the next register refer for the most part to 
members of the ancient family of Davenport, by whom C?.pe ; thorne 
was formerly used as a private chapel belonging to the family. 

Records of Marriages of Capesthorne persons, other than those 
recorded in the following pages, must be looked for in the registers 
of the Mother Church of Prestbury. 

This register has been transcribed by Mr. Leopold Choice, with 
the permission of the Rev. Canon Elstob, M.A.. vicar of Siddington 
with Capesthorne.

Marriages at Chelford, 

1674 to 1752. 

Note. — In the "Notitia Cestriensis" the chapelry of Chelford is 
styled " Chelfoi -d -cum- Withington ", " distance 5 miles from the parish 
church [Prestbury]. Was made parochial in 1674, and the registers 
begin in 1679." " Earwaker " states that a chapel existed here as 
early as the 13th century, and the present building was consecrated 
July 23, 1776, by the name of ' The Chapel of St. John the Evangelist 
in Chelford.' 

According to the registers, Chelford comprised the townships of 
Chelford, Astleand Old Withington, and was dismembered from the 
Mother Church during the last century. The Church was licensed 
for Marriages 25 October, 1S58. 

The registers to the year 1812 comprise two volumes. In Vol. 
II. is recorded the following information: — "Copy of the list &c, 
transmitted to the Clerk of the House of Commons, March, 1832. 

A list of the Register books in the Chapelry of Chelford, in the 
parish of Prestbury, and county of Chester. 

First Book : — Baptisms commence 26 March, 1679, terminate 
I December, 1786. Marriages commence 19 June, 1674, terminate 
18 August, 1752. Burials commence 19 June, 1674, terminate 1 
December, 17S6. 

Second Book : — Baptisms and Burials commence in 1787 and 
terminate in 1S12. Both books are bound — the first in parchment, 
and the second in leather." 

These records have been transcribed by Mr. Leopold Choice, and 
are now printed by leave of the late Rev. C. E. B. Bell, M.A., vicar of 
Chelford. On the first page in volume I. is the following memoranda : 
"Before the disposition to bury at Chelford Chappell was obtained, 
there was noo Regester booke there of either Baptisms or Buryals. 
And in severall yearcs before there was not in the Neighbourhood any 
Generall care taken by parents to have their children Regestered. 
But now some parents in the Chappellry, observing their fault 
therein, have decided since the making of this Regester Booke that 
such of their children |as they themselves know are not in any 
publeque Regester, might be inserted in this: Which, though it be 

not Legall, nor [ ] can be any assured widnesse when they 

were baptised nor can possibly be placed in any good order as they 
aught : Yet nevertheless for pleasinge of some parrents soo farr (who 
have keept the times of their childrens' Baptism in their own note

bookes) that it may in time to come ad something towards satisfac- 
tion, it is considered well so farr te place them, by themselves on 
this page as they have been delivered in Wordings into us, and are 
as followes." 

[Here follow the names of the families whose children were 
registered.] 

" These are to Certify Wm, it may Concern that Joseph 

Burges and Marthaw Ashley were by virtue of a lycence 

Granted out bearing date Septem. ye 20, 70 [? 170x5], by virtue 

thereof the parties above mentioned were Marryeif Decern, the 

27 accordinge to the Law of God and Custom of this Realme 

by Jacob Johnson. This was brought to the Regr. May I, 

1701, and because a Clandestine mar. not entered in the Regr. 

but herefore mde., I will attest this to be a true Coppy of the 

Certificate brought to the Regr., Geo. Halle, Surveyor.

[Marriages of Chelford persons before 1674, and between 1752 and 
1858 must be looked for in the parish registers at Prestbury. L. C] 



Marriages at Marlon, 

1563 to 1769. 

Note. — " Earwaker " states that Marton Chapel was founded about the 
middle of 14th century by Sir John de Davenport, Kt., and is built of 
timber and plaster. It so remains to this day, and the recumbent 
figure of a knight in stone, supposed to represent the founder, still 
rests in the belfry. 

In 1707 it is called a " parochial Chapel," and until the last century 
was a chapelry attached to and part of the vast parish of Prestbury, 
from which church it is situate about 6 miles distant. 

The Episcopal Registers at Chester return the Marton registers 
as commencing in 1584. This is evidently an error, probably copied 
from Gastrell's "Notitia Cestriensis," which gives the same date. 

The registers under review consist of two volumes. Volume I. 
contains 69 parchment leaves, measuring 13 by 7 inches, to which is 
attached one parchment cover. It is in a bad condition and many of 
the entries are quite lost, owing to damp and course of time. One 
bright spot in the register is during the incumbency of the Rev. 
Josiah Lightfoot, who was ejected as a Royalist in 1644. The entries 
during his time are very neatly made and are quite legible, and he 
signs his name at the foot of each page. The volume contains the 
Baptisms, Marriages and Burials from 1563 to 1725. Volume II. 
consists of 47 parchment leaves, measuring 16 by 9 inches, enclosed 
in leather-covered boards. It contains the Baptisms and Burials from 
1726 to 1S12, and Marriages from 1726 to 1769. Owing to the 
passing of Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act in 1754 this last marriage 
in 1769 was illegal, as Marton Chapel was not licenced for the 
celebration of Marriages until 16th November, iSSq. 

These records have been transcribed by Mr. Leopold Choice, and 
are now printed by leave of the Rev. H. G. Babington, M.A., vicar of 
Marton.

Marriages at Poynton-cum-Worth, 

1723 to 1753. 

Note. — From the reign of Edward II. Poynton has been favoured 
with a Chapelry, which, in those early times was connected with the 
Abbot of St. Werburg in Chester. In the year 1312 the then Lord 
of Poynton brought an action against the Abbot to procure the 
advowson of the Chapel, in which case he lost, but the Abbot bound 
himself and his heirs lo find a chaplain at Poynton for ever. Owing 
to subsequent neglect to do this the tythes were sequestrated, and the 
Chapelry became attached to the parish church of Prestbury, some 
five miles distant, in which parish it remained until Its partition in 
1871. 

Notwithstanding its antiquity, there appear to be no registers 
extant befor the year 1723. From that time until 1795 the Christenings 
were well recorded, and the Marriages to 1753, in a book containing 
65 parchment sheets, with six blank leaves at the beginning and the 
end of the volume, which measures 14 by 8 inches, and is bound in 
brown leather covers. The entries have been excellently made, but 
the register requires rebinding. 

The next register contains the Christenings from 1S13 to 1S26. 

The Burial register begins in 1841, and that for Marriages in 
1859. 

Other earlier records must be looked for in the registers of the 
parish church of Prestbury. 

Included in the Marriages under review will be found the records 
of many Marriages solemnized at the old Xorbury Chanel, as it was 
called, which was about one mile distant from Poynton. and four 
miles from the church of Stockport, to which it was attached; it has 
long since been demolished. For further details concerning Xorbury, 
see under that heading. 

These records have been transcribed by Mr. Leopold Choice, of 
Disley in Cheshire, with the permission of the Rev. H. X. Ross, B.D., 
vicar of Poynton.

Marriages at Siddington, 

1722 to 1783. 

Note. — The Church at Siddington, formerly a chapclry to the Mother 
Church of Presthury, was united with Capcsthorne to form an 
ecclesiastical parish in 1S55. 

In connection with the above the following interesting entry 
will be found in Volume V of the Prestbury Registers : — 

"November the 2nd, 1748. Memorandum— The Right of 
Presentation to Syddington Chapell was granted to John Ward, 
of Capesthorne, esqr., and his heirs by Charles Legh, of Adlington, 
esqr: and Joseph Ward, Vicar of Prestbury, with the consent of 
Samuell Lord Bishopp of Chester, and the Governors of Queen 
Ann's Bounty, upon this express condition that the said John Ward 
should contribute two hundred pounds for the further augmentation 
of the salary paid to the said chapell, and that neither he nor his 
successors should ever present the said person to both the chapells 
of Syddington and Capesthorne at the same time. 

Witness my Hand, John Ward, Vicar of Prestbury." 

The registers date from 1720, although at one time they went 
back, so it is stated, to an earlier period. Towards the end of l8tb 
century Siddington Chapel was broken into and the Communion 
plate, consisting of silver vessels, and other articles were stolon and 
carried away. The Church chest containing the above was found 
in a field close by. The early registers, so it is said, were burned. 

In the registers of Marton are several marriage entries of 
persons who were married at Siddington Chapel. These entries 
refer to a period prior to that of the Siddington registers as they 
now exist. 

Bishop Gastrell, writing of Siddington, records the registers 
as beginning in 1721 ; and later — "Anno 1721, Licence granted to 
Bury in ye Chappell Vard but not [in] ye Chappell, and to Baptize 
children : the curate to keep a Regester and transmit ye names 
of persons baptized and buried to Mother Church.'* 

The first register now existing comprises 76 paper leaves 
(14 of which are blank), measuring 19 by 7$ inches, and bound in 
leather-covered boards with brass clasps. This volume records the 
Baptisms from 1720 to 1812 ; Burials from 1724 to 18 12 and 
Marriages from 1722 to 1783. The marriage at the last-mentioned 
date was not performed at Siddington but at Prestbury. Marriages 



102 Cheshire Parish Registers. [1722 

ceased to be celebrated here on the passing of Lord H^rdwicke's 
Marriage Act and the church was not licenced for this purpose tmtil 
the year 1883. Records of Marriages other than those given in the 
following pages must therefore be looked for at Prestbury and 
Mart on. 

These particulars have been contributed by Mr. Leopold Choice, 
and are now printed by leave of the Rev. Canon ElsJlob, M.A., 
vicar of Siddington with Capesthorne.

Marriages at Pott Shrigley, 

1685 to 1751. 

Note. — Pott Shrigley takes its name from a combination of two 
small estates, i.e., Pott and Shrigley, which, in early times, were 
owned by families bearing these names. Bishop Gastrell, in his 
" Notitia," states that " Pott Chapel is situated within the Chapelry of 
Macclesfield," and until the last centuiy Pott formed a part of the 
vast parish of Prestbury, to which, of course, Macclesfield was 
also attached. The inhabitants in the wild district above Pott, 
generally known as the " Highlands of Cheshire," used the Mother 
Church for Weddings and Burials in preference to the Local Chapel- 
ries, and many of them do so to this day. 

The Church, dedicated to St. Christopher, was founded circa 
1490, by Geoffrey Downes, who, by his will, left instructions that 
the priests appointed should keep " noe Horse, ne Hawke. ne Hound, 
ne nothing that should destroy or hinder him from the service of 
God, and if he will not tend his booke, ne writing, ne teaching of 
children, ne his beades, ne other virtuus occupations, I will that hee 
be not there." 

The earliest register is a thick volume containing 75 parchment 
leaves that measure 15J by 7| inches. The volume was bound or 
re-bound in vellum, with brass clasps and corners, at the expense of 
the Overseers in 1S97. Births and Christenings are recorded from 
1619 to 1812, Marriages, 1685 to 1751, and Burials, 16S5 to 1S12. The 
entries down to the year 1733 have evidently been transcribed from 
another book or books and are most legible. It is a matter for note 
that as against the small number of Marriages and Burials (about 
200) there are something like 5,000 Christenings. A very small per- 
centage of these relate to Pott Shrigley inhabitants, but refer to 
persons from such places as Adlington, Bollington, Kettleshulme, 
Lyme, Poynton, Rainow, Woodford, Worth and other villages, that 
might be searched for in vain in the records of the Mother Church 
of Prestbury. 

This transcript has been made by Mr. Leopold Choice, and is 
now printed by leave of the Rev. C. W. Aslachsen, vicar of Pott 
Shrigley.

APPENDIX. 



Marriages at Taxal, 

1813 to 1837. 

Note. — The earlier Marriage Registers of Taxal, 1611 to 1S12. were 
printed in the first volume of the Cheshire Series in 1909, but since 
then it has been decided to bring the abstracts down to the com- 
mencement of Civil Registration in July, 1837, whenever that is 
feasible. We therefore append a continuation of Taxal down to that 
date. 

The Marriages hereunder printed are contained in two ordinary 
volumes of printed forms. 

Where not otherwise stated, the parties may be considered to 
have been of the parish of Taxal. 

These records have been transcribed by Mr. Leopold Choice, and 
are printed by leave of theiRev. S. Evans, M.A., rector of Taxal.
