Chapelry History

GRIMSARGH, with Brockholes, a chapelry, in the parish and union of Preston St Wilfrid, hundred of Amounderness, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 4 miles northeast of Preston. The chapel, dedicated to St. Michael, was consecrated in 1726. Other places in the parish include: Elston, Brockholes, and Brockhole. [1]

The town formed a parish in 1875 within the area known as Brockholes, which became one part of the much larger Amounderness hundred, in which Preston was also included.

Oliver Cromwell's Roundhead army came through Grimsargh en route to what is now Walton-le-Dale in Preston, on what became known as the Battle of Preston on 17 August 1648.

The name Grimsargh is said to derive from an Old Norse name Grímr with Norse erg. One reference lists it as coming from the Domesday Book's Grimesarge, "at the temple of Grimr" (a name for Odin).
