Parish History

Colton Holy Trinity was an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Lancashire, created by 1623 from  Hawkshead, Lancashire Ancient Parish. See also a List of Chapelries in Colton Parish and, a List of Chapelries in Hawkshead Parish

Other places in the parish include: Bethecar Moor, Nibthwaite, Colton West, and Colton East.

Colton is a village in Cumbria since 1974 (historically part of Lancashire), England. Its name has been recorded as Coleton (which is Old English for 'village') and Coulton, and its existence has been recorded as early as 1202. The settlement is situated on an incline, at the top of which is Colton Church, which was built in 1575 and rebuilt 25 years later. Colton Beck, which runs beside the village, was once known as Cole, meaning 'hazel stream'.[The local parish council is also named Colton, and includes Finsthwaite, Lakeside, Oxen Park, Nibthwaite, Bouth, and Rusland in its boundary.

The modern parish is in the diocese of Carlisle.

"COULTON [or Colton] (Holy Trinity), a parish, in the union of Ulverston, hundred of Lonsdale north of the Sands, N. division of the county of Lancaster; comprised also the chapelries of Haverthwaite and Rusland and the parochial chapelry of Finsthwaite. East Coulton is 5 miles north by east from Ulverston." See also the chapels of Haverthwaite, Rusland, and Finsthwaite. There was built also a meeting-house for the Society of Friends here.[1]
