Chapelry History

Shireshead St James (formerly St Paul) was an ancient chapel of ease by 1520 lying within the boundaries of Cockerham, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

Other places in the parish include: Claverley.

The chapelry of St Paul was founded in 1520 but closed in 1889 when the parish of St James was created.

"SHIRESHEAD, or Shirehead, a chapelry in Garstang and Cockerham parishes, Lancashire; on the river Wyre, 1¾ mile N by E of Scorton r. station, and 4 north by east of Garstang."[1]
Shireshead St Paul contributor Alexander P Kapp.jpg

Here is an 1848 historical perspective from the British topographer, Samuel A. Lewis on Clevely:

"CLEVELY, a township, partly in the parish of Cockerham, hundred of Lonsdale south of the Sands, but chiefly in the parish of Garstang, hundred of Amounderness, union of Garstang, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 4¼ miles north by east of Garstang. At Shire's Head, or Shire Side, is a chapel" built by the year 1742. [2]
