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

"SEVENOAKS, a township in Great Budworth parish, Cheshire; 4 miles N W by N of Northwich. Acres: 601. Real property: £1,391. Population: 159. Houses: 31. There is a Quakers' chapel."

Sevenoaks became a civil parish in 1866. It was located in Runcorn Registration District and Runcorn Rural District until 1936 when it was absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Antrobus.
