Entries for the Marple, Disley and Longdendale areas.

MARPLE, about 5 miles e.s.e. from Stockport, is a chapelry in that parish, in the hundred of Macclesfield. Wyberslegh hall, now a farm house, is noted as the birth place of the notorious John Bradshaw, who was president of the high court of justice which condemned King Charles I. In the registers of Stockport church his birth is thus entered: “1602, John the Sonne of Henry Bradshaw, of Marple, was baptized the 10th of December.” In the margin is the word traitor, with a line under it. It is said the following prophetic lines were written by this staunch adherent to republican principles, on a stone in the church-yard of Macclesfield:
My brother Henry must heir the land,
My brother Frank must be at his command :
While I, poor Jack, will do that
That all the world shall wonder at.

He died in 1659. The probate copy of his will, which may be seen yet at Marple hall, contains a bequest of £700 to purchase an annuity for maintaining a free school, at Marple; the changes brought about with regard to property, at the restoration, prevented this provision from being available. Henry Bradshaw, who survived his brother, however, founded a small school here, and endowed it with the interest of £100. which has since been augmented by other benefactions. Marple hall is a noble old house, finely situated on the rise of a hill above the Goyt, and is the property, as well as Wyberslegh hall, of John Isherwood, Esq. a descendant of the before-named president Bradshaw. Here is a chapel of ease to Stockport, recently rebuilt of stone, with a tower, containing the old bells of Stockport church. The living is in the gift of the rector of Stockport, and the Rev. Robert Littler is the curate : the registers commenced in 1655. Besides the chapel of All Saints here is a Wesleyan methodist chapel. In the neighbourhood of this village is a noble aqueduct over the river Mersey, supported by three lofty arches. A branch from the Peak Forest canal, to Macclesfield, is in a state of forwardness, and will, when completed, be of material convenience to the neighbourhood. The spinning of cotton in the township is to some extent, and on the Goyt are some corn mills. The chapelry contains a population of about 2,600 persons.
Disley, or Distley, anciently spelt Dystelegh-Stanlegh, is a village and chapelry, in the hundred of Macclesfield and parish of Stockport, about six miles s.e. of the latter town. In the time of Edward I. Disley was held by Jordan de Dystelegh, and a hamlet on the north side by Grym de Stanlegh ; hence the compound modern appellation of Disley-Stanley. The situation of the village is very pleasant on the immediate borders of Derbyshire, upon the high road to Sheffield: a respectable and convenient inn and posting-house, the Ram's Head, is in the village. St. Mary’s chapel here was rebuilt in 1558; it consists of a nave and chancel, with a stone tower, containing a ring of six bells; the chancel and vestry are of brick : in the chancel window are some beautiful specimens of heraldic stained glass. The curate is the Rev. James Sumner. Lyme hall is the seat of Thomas Legh, Esq. Several cotton spinning and printing works are in the neighbourhood. It was in this village that the first examination took place of Mr. Edward Gibbon Wakefield, for the abduction of Miss Turner, daughter and heiress of Wm. Turner, Esq. of Shrigley hall, near Macclesfield, from a boarding school at Liverpool, on the 7th March, 1826. In 1821 the number of inhabitants in this chapelry was about 1,500.
Romily is a township and village, about four miles east of Stockport, in that parish, situated on the hills bordering on the neighbouring county of Derby. - Chadkirk Chapel is in this township, nearly opposite to Marple hall. The number of inhabitants, in 1821, was about 1,200.

MOTTRAM or Mottram-in-Longdendale, is a township and parish in the hundred of Macclesfield, between seven and eight miles north-east of Stockport, and twelve from Manchester : the parish extends to the borders of Yorkshire, and includes a bleak and dreary promontory, while other scenery in the neighbourhood of Mottram is very grand ; diversified by rugged steep rocks, swelling eminences, and vallies clothed with verdure. Most of the hills have springs, either issuing from their sides or summits, all which are of soft water. The Car Tor, in this parish, is a singular precipice, eighty feet in its perpendicular height, the summit and sides have oak trees growing on them, and the face of the precipice exhibits various strata of rock, coal, or slaty matter, and freestone, all regularly disposed as if laid by the hand of art. Between the Car Tor and the hills of Derbyshire the Mersey bubbles along its craggy bed, contributing to the variety of the romantic prospect. There are extensive moor grounds in this neighbourhood, which abound with grouse. Before the year 1300 the de Burghs had property here; in 1406 it reverted to the crown by the attainder of Lord Lovell; soon after, it was possessed in fee by Sir Wm. Stanley, of Holt, and in 1495 it again was in the crown : the lord of the manor now is John Richard Delap Tollemache, Esq. who holds a court leet and baron in May and November. The church, which is dedicated to St. Mary, has a tower of eight bells, and consists besides of a nave, chancel, and side aisles, with private chancels at the end ; in one of which is a monumental full length figure of Ralph Stanley, in complete armour, with his wife on his left side; and on an altar tomb is a figure of Serjeant Bretland - date 1703. It is supposed this church was erected about 1480 ; the registers commence in 1562. A fine toned organ has lately been added. It is a vicarage, in the gift of the Bishop of Chester: the present vicar is the Rev. Wm. Johnson. Besides the church there are other places of worship for dissenters, &c. and a free school and two Sunday schools. The most distinguished native of this town was Lawrence Earnshaw, a most ingenious mechanic, universal artist, and musician ; he invented a curious piece of mechanism, tending to save labour in the operation of spinning and reeling cotton : this machine, having exhibited to his friends, with a philanthropy that did honour lo his heart, he destroyed, leaving it to subsequent artists, less charitably fastidious, to discover and employ similar works. In clock making his elaborate genius was eminently conspicuous: he died about 1764. In the parish are some respectable concerns in the spinning and manufacturing of cotton, and calico printing. A coal mine is also worked in the neighbourhood of the town. Two fairs are held here, viz. April 27th and October 31st, for cattle.
The parish of Mottram contains the townships of Godley, Hattersley, Hollingworth, Matley, Newton, Stayley and Tintwistle, and a population of 10,086 persons, of which number 1,944 are in the township of Mottram.
Hyde is a populous township and village, in the parish of Stockport, four miles and a half from that town, and is a place deriving its consequence from the extensive establishments for spinning,and manufacturing cotton goods by the power loom. The invention of the mule has bestowed upon this village astonishing benefit, and perhaps no place in the manufacturing district has, for its size, attained more importance in the last twenty-five years. Coal, which is found in great quantity here, adds also to the comfort and prosperity of the inhabitants. The only places of worship here at present are for the calvinists and methodists ; but the commissioners for building churches have very properly granted £4,500. for the erection of a church ; and George Clarke, Esq. has munificently given an acre of land for the site of the proposed edifice. This gentleman is lord of the manor, and holds a court baron in May and November. A court is also held before Hyde John Clarke, Esq. the magistrate, for the hearing and deciding petty causes, at the office of Messrs. Chorlton and Hibbert, solicitors. This township enjoys the advantages of water conveyance by the Peak Forest canal, which, as well as the river Tame, passes through this township. Hyde mill, or Hyde hall, the seat of H. J. Clarke, Esq. is a building of some considerable antiquity ; recent improvements have deprived the exterior of its ancient appearance, but a great part of the interior is in its original state. It is pleasantly situated on the river Tame, but the rapid progress made in manufactures, and the introduction of machinery to such a vast extent and power, has materially deteriorated from the beauties of the adjacent scenery. The number of inhabitants in Hyde, in 1821, was 3,355, but the population has increased since that period.
Gee Cross is a populous village, in the townships of Hyde and Werneth, in the parish of Stockport, four miles n. e. from the latter town. It derives its name from the circumstance of an ancient and opulent family named Gee erecting a cross here, of stone, the remains of which have but recently been removed. The only place of worship here is an unitarian chapel, of which the Rev. J. Brooks is the present officiating minister. Two fairs are held, viz. 28th April and 20th November, for cattle, pedlary, &c. The population returns are made up with Hyde.
Tintwistle, or Tintwisle, is a village and township in the parish of Mottram-in-Longdendale, 13 miles from Manchester and 2 from Mottram, pleasantly situated on the great road which passes into Yorkshire. This is also a village thriving by means of the manufactories, which give employment to so many hands. The only place of worship here is a chapel for the calvinists, of which the Rev. J. C. Potter is the minister. The number of inhabitants, in 1821, was about 1,600.
