Marthall is a village which since 2009 has been located in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is around 3 miles from Knutsford.

Marthall was formed in 1951 from another civil parish named Marthall cum Warford which existed in Cheshire from 1866 until 1951. In 1951 it was split into the two parishes of Marthall and Little Warford. Marthall-cum-Warford was located in Bucklow Rural District east of Knutsford.

Marthall cum Warford had been a township in Rostherne ancient parish in Bucklow Hundred, and was created a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1836 to 1895 it had been in Altrincham Poor Law Union, when it was transferred to Bucklow Poor Law Union until 1930. It was also in Altrincham Rural Sanitary District. For the year 1894-1895 it was in Altrincham Rural District before being transferred to Bucklow Rural District for the remainder of its existence.

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.
