Excerpt from Lancashire and Cheshire Church Surveys, 1649-1655: In Two Parts; Part I. Parochial Surveys of Lancashire; Part II. Surveys of the Lands, &C., Of the Bishop and Dean and Chapter of Chester, and of the Warden and Fellows of the Collegiate Church of Manchester The Survey shows that there were in Lancashire in 1650 631 parish churches and 118 chapels, of which no less than 38 were without minister, chieﬂy for want of maintenance. Many of the parishes were very large, and the Commissioners wisely recommended their subdivision; whilst some of the chapels were so far from their mother-church that it was thought desirable that they should become parish churches in either case the proposed new boundaries were clearly defined, and, in many instances, the names Of the house holders ln the district are given; thus furnishing valuable genealogical evidence not to be found elsewhere. The name of the minister of each church or chapel is always recorded, and as a rule an' Opinion follows as to his fitness or otherwise for the Office he holds.
