Notes:

Neither the GB Historical GIS nor the Cheshire Record Office (e-mail from Caroline Picco, Archivist, 23/8/2010) have been able to identify this second Overchurch, so we conclude it is an error by Youngs. NB Broxton Hundred was south and east of Chester, while the well known Overchurch in Cheshire is in the Wirrall.
