"MARBURY, a township in Great Budworth, Cheshire; on the Grand Trunk canal, near the river Weaver, 1½ mile N of Northwich. Acres: 362. Real property: £743. Population: 17. Houses: 4. The manor belonged, in the time of Henry III., to the Marburys; passed, in 1708, to Earl Rivers; went, by marriage, to the Earl of Barrymore; passed to the Barrys; and, with Marbury Hall, belongs now to A. H. S. Barry, Esq. The hall is a large brick mansion, with stone facings; recently underwent extensive alterations and additions; contains a fine selection of paintings and antique sculptures; and stands in beautiful grounds, which include a lake of 80 acres."
