Mobberley is a semi-rural village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, situated between Wilmslow and Knutsford. Manchester Airport is located to the north, although part of Runway 2 is within the parish boundaries. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 2,546.
Mobberley is best known as the home of the Mallory family: George Mallory (1886–1924), a mountaineer who died attempting Mount Everest, and Air Chief Marshal Sir Trafford Leigh-Mallory (1892–1944), who was air commander for the Allied Invasion of Normandy during World War II were both born in Mobberley. Their father, The Rev. Herbert Leigh Mallory, was rector of Mobberley.
GENUKI provides the following details:
Mobberley was an ancient parish in Bucklow Hundred which became a civil parish in 1866. It includes the hamlets of Baguley Green, Barnes Brow, Burleyhurst, Gorsey Brow, Knolls Green, Newton, Paddockhill (part), Saltersley, Tipping Brow and Woodend. The population was 993 in 1801, 1,275 in 1851, 1,353 in 1901, and 1,913 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.
