Chapel en le Frith with Chinley
If you find any errors on this site or would like to contribute material please email me - (but remove the 8 from the address)
If you need information about Chapel ancestors which is not available on this website then Sandy Quinn has the 1841, 1851, 1881 and 1891 census for the town and is willing to look up details for you at [email protected]
We both also have `The Diary of James Clegg` by Vanessa Doe. James Clegg was the minister at Chinley Independent Chapel at Chapel Milton from 1708 to 1755. As well as ministering to his neighbours` spiritual needs, he was also a doctor. The diaries detail who Clegg visited and what treatments he prescribed. Both Sandy and I would be happy to look folks up for you in these books.
Rob Marchington has scanned on to his web site Wm Braylesford Bunting`s interesting account of the History of Chapel en le Frith. The address is: www.marchington.org
