Bulkeley has been since 2009 a village in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is administered jointly with Ridley as the Bulkeley & Ridley Parish Council..The village is situated on the A534 about 9 miles west of Nantwich. The civil parish also includes the small settlement of Bulkelehay (also known as Bulkeleyhay or Bulkeley Hey). Bulkeley Hill falls within the civil parish. The name is first recorded as Bulceleia in 1086 and is from Old English bulluc + leah 'pasture where bullocks graze.'
The civil parish had a total population of 240 in the UK census of 2001. This compares to 184 in 1801, 197 in 1851, 168 in 1901, and 146 in 1951. Until 1866 Bulkeley was a township in Malpas ancient parish in the Broxton Hundred. (Source:GENUKI)
- The GENUKI and UKBMD pages on Cheshire and its parishes point to many other sources of information on places within the county. The many small parishes and townships that existed before 1866 are treated individually as well as the larger towns and conurbations.
- A Vision of Britain through Time provides a series of maps from the Ordnance Survey illustrating the towns and villages of Cheshire and also the borders between parishes. The following group of maps provide views of the county at various dates, illustrating the changes in administrative structure.
- Cheshire Archives and Local Studies have organized a facility to compare 19th century maps (including tithe maps circa 1830) with modern Ordnance Survey maps. These are available for every civil parish. The detail is very magnified and it is difficult to read any placenames on the older maps. Cheshire Archives and Local Studies are the local keepers of historical material for the county.
