WARDLEWORTH [St James], a township, in the parish and union of Rochdale, hundred of Salford, S. division of Lancashire; containing 11,400 inhabitants. This township is in the division of Huddersfield, of which it forms the south-western extremity; and is partly in the borough of Rochdale, including the north-eastern part of the town. Foxholes, in the township, has long been the seat of the Entwistles, a distinguished Lancashire family, of whom was Sir Bertyne Entwistle, one of the heroes of Agincourt. The original mansion was built by Edmund Entwistle soon after the Reformation, and for upwards of two centuries presented an interesting specimen of the Elizabethan style of architecture. In 1793 it was displaced by the present house, erected by John Entwistle, Esq., who served the office of high sheriff of the county in 1798.—See Rochdale.
