Chapelry History

Stalmine St James was created a chapel of ease by 1583 from, and lying within the boundaries of Lancaster St Mary, Lancashire  Ancient Parish. Other places in the parish include: Pilling Lane, Staynall, Stalmine with Staynall, and Preesall with Hackinsall.

The civil parish containing the village is Stalmine-with-Staynall, which was listed as a township in the parish of Lancaster in 1835.

The village history dates back to 1066 when Tostig Godwinson held it as part of his Preston Fee. The first recorded possessor was Robert de Stalmine in 1165. The chapel of Stalmine was first mentioned about 1200 and a cemetery was consecrated in 1230. The chapel was rebuilt in 1806 when it was renamed St James. In 1689 Stalmine had a Presbyterian meeting house, which in 1717 was stated to be located "very near to the chapel".
The village church, St. James Church  on Hallgate Lane, has a sundial dated 1690.

"STALMINE, with Staynall [created by 1583], a township, and chapelry, in the parish of Lancaster, union of Garstang, hundred of Amounderness, N. division of Lancashire, 5 miles north by northeast of Poulton. The original chapel was dedicated to St Oswald: the present building was erected in 1806, and dedicated to St. James."[1]
