Hurst Green, Lancashire Genealogy
Hurst Green St John the Evangelist was created a chapelry in 1839, lying within the boundaries of Mitton, Lancashire Ancient Parish.
Hurst Green is a small village in the Ribble Valley district of Lancashire, England, connected in its history to the Jesuit school, Stonyhurst College.
With the founding of Stonyhurst Hall, by Richard Shireburn in 1592, the hamlet of Hurst Green (about a mile away) began to develop, as often happens with the building of Manor Houses. The hamlet’s development continued, once the College was founded in 1794 and today is a popular tourist destination. It remains a small rural village.
The modern parish is in the Dioces of Bradford.
