Chapelry History

Satterthwaite All Saints was an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Lancashire, created in 1741 from chapelry in  Hawkshead, Lancashire  Ancient Parish.

Satterthwaite is a village situated in Grizedale, a valley in the Lake District, England, about four miles south of Hawkshead. Since 1974 it has been adminsitratively within Cumbria but was historically in Lancashire. The modern parish is in the Diocese of Carlisle.

SATTERTHWAITE, a chapelry, in the parish of Hawkshead, union of Ulverston, hundred of Lonsdale north of the Sands, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 4 miles (S. by W.) from Hawkshead; containing 420 inhabitants. It is overspread with coppicewood, from the abundance of which the smelting of iron-ore was formerly carried on to a considerable extent: at present, the manufacture of bobbin is carried on at a large mill at Cunsey. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Incumbent of Hawkshead, with a net income of £100. The chapel was repaired and enlarged in 1837.
