Horredge

Anyone know where in Cheshire a place called Horredge is.

I think it may be in or near the Taxal area but can't find it on a map.

Thanks

Re: Horredge

Hi Em'

You're probably correct about Taxal.

A partial extract from the Taxal Burials for ID purposes, mentions Horredge as an address..

"16 Jan 1694/95
POTT
A son of Alice
Horredge"

Little else seen, sadly..

Re: Horredge

NBI has this..

16 Jan 1695
[son] POTT
Taxal, St James

May be some local history to be had, now we have a church.

Re: Horredge

I came across it in a baptism in 1690 in Taxal - Ann daughter of John Hall of Horredge.

I've also seen the same newspaper article, but still cannot pinpoint where it was.

The Ann from Horredge, baptised at Taxal went on to marry in Mottram in Longdendale so it's most likely to be in the north east of Cheshire.

Re: Horredge

This is the other one:

https://newspaperarchive.com/uk/midd...1/05-07/page-4

Right column.

River Goit - the border of Cheshire & Derbyshire

I can't even find a decent map that shows the river.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...r_Goyt_map.png

The Goyt then passes through Taxal and Horwich End where it is joined by the Todd Brook.

https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Tax...hire_Genealogy

TAXALL (St. James), is a parish ... The church stands on a slope above the river Goyt, in the hamlet of Taxal

Can't pinpoint the exact location of Horredge.

Re: Horredge

Do you think it could be a problem with spelling?? I found a Horwich on Google maps between Standish and Bolton. Is that near where you are looking??

Re: Horredge

The Horwich near Bolton is north of Manchester and is in Lancashire. The place I'm looking for is south of Manchester near the Cheshire/Derbyshire border.

However, I was thinking along the same lines as you. There is a place called Horwich End which is about a mile and a half from Taxal. I am presuming that this is the place but can't find anything to say it used to be known as Horredge.

Re: Horredge

Would it be how people pronounced it back in the day?? Whoever was writing it may have written it as it was pronounced at the time, were all the baptisms found entered at that time written by the same person??
