Duddon is a small settlement in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire East. It is on the A51 road and is 8 kilometres (5 mi) east of the town of Chester. The church was erected in 1835 as a chapel of ease to the parish church at Tarvin.

Duddon was a township of the ancient parish of Tarvin until 1866. The population was 163 in 1801, 191 in 1851, 186 in 1901, and 202 in 1951. (Source: GENUKI)

Research Tips

  • 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.
