Parish History

Eccleston St Mary (near Croston) is an Ancient Parish in the county of Lancashire.

Other places in the parish include: Heskin, Wrightington, and Parbold.

Eccleston is a village and civil parish of the Borough of Chorley in Lancashire, England. It is beside the River Yarrow and was formerly an agricultural and later a weaving settlement.
Its name came from the Celtic word "eglēs" meaning a church, and the Old English word "tūn" meaning a farmstead or settlement - i.e. a settlement by a Romano-British church.

The Diocese of Blackburn is a Church of England diocese, covering much of Lancashire, created in 1926 from part of the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese includes the towns of Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, and the cities of Lancaster, and Preston, as well as a large part of the Ribble Valley.

"ECCLESTON St Mary, a parish, in the union of Chorley, hundred of Leyland, N. division of the county of Lancaster; comprising the townships of Eccleston, Heskin, Parbold, and Wrightington, 5 miles west of  Chorley. There is a second incumbency at Douglas." [1]

Do not confuse (this) Eccleston St Mary's Parish with Eccleston Christ Church, a chapelry only--and a separate place, lying near to and within the parish of Prescot ancient parish.
