Manley  Cheshire

 

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

MANLEY, a township in Frodsham parish, Cheshire; near Delamere forest, 3¾ miles S by W of Frodsham. Acres, 1,326. Real property, £2,042. Pop. in 1851, 395; in 1861,294. Houses, 59. The decrease of pop. was caused by discontinuance of employment in stone quarries. Manley Hall is the seat of Capt. H. Heron. AA public school-house is in the parish, and is used as a chapel of ease.
