Edited by William Farrer

  • Description
  • Author
The volume contains the histories of the three ancient parishes in Blackburn hundred north of the Ribble (Mitton, Chipping. and Ribchester) and of the eight ancient parishes in Amounderness hundred (Preston, Kirkham, Lytham, Poulton-le-Fylde, Bispham, part of Lancaster, St. Michael-on-Wyre, and Garstang). A very large part of Amoundernesshundred is the level area between the Ribble estuary and Cockerham Sands called the Fylde and one known as 'the wheatfield of Amounderness'. Some of the ancient parishes include places that have become larger, more populous, and better known than the old centres ofpopulation which gave the parishes their names. Poulton-le-Fylde includes Fleetwood, and Bispham is better known to the world as the seaside resort of Blackpool, which also extends into Poulton.

William Farrer (1861–1924) was an historian and genealogist, whose main published works were on Lancashire and Yorkshire. After the first World War his project on honors and knights’ fees resulted in two books published before his death.
