Egerton has been since 2009 a civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. A largely rural area, the parish includes the small settlement of Egerton Green, which lies 3¾ miles to the northeast of Malpas and 8 miles to the west of Nantwich, as well as Fairy Glen. Nearby villages include Bickerton, and Bulkeley. According to the 2001 UK census, the parish had a population of 81.
Before 1866 Egerton was a township in the ancient parish of Malpas in the Broxton Hundred of Cheshire. It had a population of 103 in 1801, 127 in 1851, 113 in 1901, and 97 in 1951.
- 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.
