the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Cheadle Moseley covered the rural area that includes parts modern-day Cheadle and Cheadle Hulme.

Cheadle Moseley existed as a township and then a civil parish from the Middle Ages until 1894, when it was merged with the townships of Cheadle Bulkeley and Stockport Etchells to form the Cheadle and Gatley Urban District, finally becoming part of the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in Greater Manchester in 1974. (Greater Manchester was formed in 1974.)

It was bordered to the west by Stockport Etchells and part of Cheadle Bulkeley, to the north by Heaton Norris, to the east by another part of Cheadle Bulkeley and Bramhall and to the south by Handforth.

Wikipedia] has a longer article on Cheadle Hulme which is the modern name for the original area known as Cheadle Moseley. This article traces the ownership of the manor through a number of families from the Domesday Book of 1086 through to the end of the 18th century. The economic history from 1800 forward is also discussed. Cheadle Hulme's population is in the range of 30,000 people.

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.
