History

Cheadle Hulme All Saints was created as a parish from the Ancient parish of  Cheadle St Mary's Created as separate parish from 1868, serving parts of the townships of Cheadle Bulkeley, Cheadle Moseley and Stockport Etchells.

The Domesday Book provides the earliest mention of the area, where it is recorded as "Cedde", Celtic for "wood". A stone cross dedicated to the Anglo-Saxon St Chad, discovered in 1873, indicates Anglo-Saxon activity. The cross was found in an area called "Chad Hill", on the banks of the Micker Brook near its confluence with the River Mersey; this area became "Chedle". Suggestions for the origin of the name include the words cedde, and leigh or leah, in Old English meaning "clearing", forming the modern day "Cheadle". "Holme" may have been derived from the Danish word for "water meadow" or "island in the fen".
