SCARISBRICK, a village, a township-chapelry,&nbsp;in the parish&nbsp;of Ormskirk in the southern&nbsp;division of Lancashire, 2 miles (N. W.) from Ormskirk. It had&nbsp;1957 inhabitants by 1848.&nbsp;The township includes the hamlets of Bescar and Snape-Green, and parts of Martin Mere; and comprises 7819 acres, whereof 2560 are arable, 5121 pasture, and 138 wood. The Leeds and Liverpool canal passes through. Scarisbrick Hall is said to have been erected in the 11th century: it was inhabited by the family in 1567; and was improved, and re-cased in stone, in 1814. Hurlston Hall, built in the reign of Edward VI., is a lath-andplaster house, originally the abode of the Hurlston family. The tithes have been commuted for £970 payable to an impropriator, and £94 to the rector of Hallsall. In 1814 a Roman Catholic chapel was built at Bescar.

Chapelry History

SCARISBRICK, a township, in the parish and union of Ormskirk, hundred of West Derby, S. division of Lancashire, 2 miles (N. W.) from Ormskirk. [1]


Scarisbrick parish, the largest in Lancashire, was, in early times, an area much avoided by travellers. With its vast tracts of poorly drained peat marshes and the huge lake of Martin Mere, it was difficult terrain to cross. Much of the flat land between Southport and Liverpool is polder reclaimed from marshes and the lake. The original small scattered farmsteads of the parish now form the basis of today's hamlets of Barson Green, Bescar, Carr Cross, Drummerdale, Hurlston, Pinfold, and Snape.

Resources

Civil Registration

Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records. There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD.
