Plemstall  Cheshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Plemstall like this:

PLEMONSTALL, or Plemstall, a parish in Great Boughton district, Cheshire; on the river Gowy, adjacent to the Cheshire and Manchester railway, 4 miles N E of Chester. It comprises the townships of Hoole, Mickle-Trafford, Bridge-Trafford, and Pickton; and its post town is Chester. Acres, 3, 134. ...

Real property, £10, 885. Pop. in 1851, 877; in 1861, 2,019. Houses, 394. The increase of pop. was mainly in Hoole, and arose therefrom proximity to Chester r. station. The property is not much divided. A garrison for Charles I. was placed in Mickle-Trafford, during the siege of Chester. The living is a donative in the diocese of Chester. Value, £400. Patron, J. F. France, Esq. The church stands in Mickle-Trafford; and is of the 14th century, with a tower of 1826. A new church has been erected in Hoole. A section, which had a pop. of 1, 340 in 1861, is included in the chapelry of Christchurch, Chester. There are, in that section, a national school and a lecture-hall and reading-room; and, in Mickle-Trafford, a parochial school.
