Parish History

Melling St Wilfrid (formerly St Peter) near Hornby is an Ancient Parish in the county of Lancashire.

Other places in the parish include: Botton, Melling with Wrayton, Wrayton, Wennington, and Roeburndale.
It should not be confused with Melling (near Liverpool), Lancashire in the same county.

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.
Here is an 1848 historical perspective by the topographer Samuel A.  Lewis on this parish:

"MELLING (St. Peter), a parish, in the hundred of Lonsdale south of the Sands, N. division of the county of Lancaster; containing, with the two chapelries of Arkholme with Cawood, and Hornby, and the townships of Farleton, Roeburndale, Wennington, and Wray with Botton, and the township of Melling with Wrayton, 11 miles north and east from Lancaster. At Arkholme, Hornby, and Wray, are separate chapels.[1]
