A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Newton by Daresbury from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"NEWTON-BY-DARESBURY, a township, with a village, in Runcorn parish, Cheshire; near the North-western railway, 5 miles N E by E of Frodsham. Acres: 758. Real property: £1,981. Population: 191. Houses: 28. The property is subdivided. The manor belongs to the Rev. G. Heron."

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.
