Parish History

PRESCOT (St Mary), a market-town and parish, and the head of a union, in the hundred of West Derby, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 8 miles east by northeast of Liverpool. The parish consists of the chapelries of Farnworth, Rainford, St. Helen's, and Great Sankey, and the townships of Bold, Cronton (which had at one time, 31 Nonconformist chapels in the area--mostly Welsh), Cuerdley, Ditton (Hough Green), Eccleston, Parr, Penketh, Prescot, Rainhill, Sutton, Whiston, Widness, and Windle. There are chapels at Eccleston, Farnworth, Parr, Rainford, Rainhill, St. Helen's, Great Sankey, and Sutton. The Unitarians, Primitive Methodists, and Wesleyan Methodists, have places of worship in the town; and at Portico, a mile and a half on the east, is a Roman Catholic chapel, built in 1790, and dedicated to St Nicholas.[1]
