=== County Information ===
Be sure to visit both "The Parishes A-Z" and "The Chapelries A-Z" links (to the right) and click to find your parish or chapel to 1) determine if it was indeed an ancient parish, or, if a chapel of ease and to which ancient parish it was attached and, 2) find links to rich online (free) data content for each.
 
Lancashire originally had only 75 parishes, and unlike most other England counties, was comprised by far of mostly (over 400) chapelries. These chapelries (or chapels of ease) subdivided each parish to which they were attached. '''Key Strategy''': Always be certain to search for the events of your ancestor[s] in ALL chapelries of a parish and their registers as well in the registers of its ancient parish.

<br>Lancashire's numerous smaller chapels of ease and district chapels comprises a&nbsp;vast&nbsp;portion of its geographical tapestry and each one possessed registers of baptisms, and sometimes marriages and burials.&nbsp;Because of this unique attribute, thoroughness in&nbsp;Lancashire research especially requires comprehensive, [http://www.british-history.ac.uk/source.aspx?pubid=445 diligent study to determine ''<u>all</u>'' chapels of ease, chapelries, district churches, and parochial chapels lying within the boundary of each ancient parish].
 
 
 
Lancashire contains also "parts of 4 other [border] parishes, and at least 9 extra-parochial places.&nbsp;Prior to 1870,&nbsp;the county was&nbsp;divided into the city of Manchester, and the boroughs of Ashton-under-Lyne, Blackburn, Bolton, Burnley, Clitheroe, Lancaster, Liverpool, Oldham, Preston, Rochdale, Salford, and Wigan, and included&nbsp;parts of the Cheshire boroughs of Stalybridge, Stockport, and Warrington...

Because the&nbsp;above Maps might&nbsp;not list all chapelries or mention your place (i.e. a chapelry for especially&nbsp;post-1851 Lancashire), we have also created the following pages (with "Lists") as yet another tier/recourse to help you&nbsp;organize&nbsp;your approach[es] to researching in Lancashire''':'''

=== Parishes and Chapelries ===
  
On the "Lancashire" main page,&nbsp;click&nbsp;"The Parishes (A-Z)" or, click "Parishes" on the left margin&nbsp;and click the name of the parish (see those with a double '''**''')&nbsp;in which your ancestor resided. Then&nbsp;click the "Comprehensive List of Chapels and Churches" which&nbsp;more thoroughly lists&nbsp;all chapels&nbsp;attached to&nbsp;each parish. Print it out as a check-off List for your research. (If your 'parish' is not listed in the "Parishes" page, then consider the stronger likelihood that it actually ''wasn't''&nbsp; a "Parish" per se, but rather, was a large chapel of ease or chapelry standing within the boundary of an ancient parish. [Note: Some of Lancashire's 400-plus chapels became a "parish" by act of Parliament, later on.]

==== Lancashire "Search" Strategy  ====
+
===Civil Registration Districts ===
  
In Lancashire research--
+
[http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/lan.htm List of Lancashire Civil Registration Districts] and the parishes they contain.
  
#Identifying all chapel registers within each ancient parish--is a "must" before searching in the next contiguous ancient parishes! Why? Because most parishes have multiple chapelries attached to them. The mistake oft repeated is the failure to accurately identify all chapels within the parish and instead moving on to the next parish anyway before having researched in every one of the chapelries' registers! This is the major reason for decades-old unsolved research problems. To exasperate the problem, there is no single treatise, reference aid or published resource tool anywhere--that accurately identifies ALL chapelries found within each ancient parish. These (Lancashire) Wiki pages offer researchers--for the first time a singular tool and reference aid to help you identify and create the most accurate list of chapelries within each ancient parish compiled from several reference tools and aids. Still, additional chapelries occasionally come to light which need to be added to each parish's lists found herein!
+
=== Websites  ===
#Never advance research in the next ancient parish church's registers unless or until you've searched all the chapels of ease's (chapelries') registers, of those chapelries lying within the target ancient parish's boundary! For example, the ancient parish of St Chad's Rochdale has about 20 chapels and district churches attached to and subdividing its parish boundary; thus all 20 of them need to be searched before continuing the research in the next ancient parish, such as the parish of Radcliff (St Mary)!
 
#Many of Lancashire's chapelries sent couples off to the mother (ancient) parish for marrying. This is because nearly&nbsp;95 percent of all chapelries were never granted permission to marry.&nbsp;Burials are often found in the ancient parish yard (to which it was attached) or else in another nearby chapel with a burial yard. Many chapelries simply did not possess or maintain a church burial ground'.
 
#Marriages in the City of Manchester occurred mostly at Manchester Cathedral--England's largest ancient parish which possessed over 150 chapelries, district churches and ecclesiastical parishes subdividing its border. The Cathedral retained 'licence' to marry most couples within it own border with but very few exceptions especially during the Lord Hardwick era between 1754 and 1837. Note the following few churches within the borders of Manchester ancient parish (the Cathedral of St Mary, St George &amp; St Denys) which, like the Cathedral Church, held rights and privileges to marry couples in their respective chapelries:
 
  
*Manchester St John's Deansgate - from 1804
+
*[http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/ Lancashire Online Parish Clerks] Links to extracted data from many of the parishes in Lancashire.  
*Manchester St Mary's Chapelry - from 1806
 
*Ardwick St Thomas - 1740 <br>By about 1840 numerous chapelries were granted permission to marry couples in their own chapel.
 
 
 
<br>
 
 
 
See Maps above-mentioned, or the links to the "Comprehensive List of Chapels"--found on the main page to each ancient parish--to help you create an accurate list of chapelries to search.&nbsp;
 
 
 
Two&nbsp;great (free) resources&nbsp;for also finding chapelries in each ancient parish (1848 and 1870, respectively) are Lewis' ''[http://www.british-history.ac.uk/source.aspx?pubid=445 <font color="#800080">Topographical Dictionary of England</font>]'', published in 1848 or,&nbsp; Wilson's ''[http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/descriptions/index.jsp <font color="#800080">Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales</font>]'',&nbsp;(in 1870),&nbsp;Both of these publications help you determine whether a Lancashire&nbsp;place was--
 
 
 
*the ancient parish
 
*a chapelry (a chapel of ease)&nbsp;
 
*district church
 
*an ecclesiastical parish
 
*parochial chapelry (holding jurisdiction over one or more other chapelries within an ancient parish)
 
*a parish and then&nbsp;identifies by&nbsp;name--all chapelries within its borders
 
 
 
<br>
 
 
 
'''Civil Registration District Jurisdictions&nbsp;'''
 
 
 
When civil registration of births, marriages and deaths began in 1837, Lancashire was divided into nearly&nbsp; 40 registration districts, each containing numerous&nbsp;parishes and their attached chapelries.&nbsp;[http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/lan.htm View and see a list of Lancashire districts] and the parishes they contain, which will&nbsp;help you&nbsp;quickly identify the correct registration district name when searching the indexes to&nbsp;the civil registrations of births, marriages&nbsp;and deaths&nbsp;(post-1837 to the present).

County Information

Lancashire, is a maritime county located in the North West of England. It is sometimes called the County of Lancaster.

By 1850 Lancashire was comprised of 75 ancient parishes, each with mostly large boundaries. However, with over 400 smaller chapels  in Lancashire (called chapelries, chapels of ease, district chapels or ecclesiastical churches), most parishes on average had 8 chapels which sub-divided them.

You can also check John Marius Wilson, Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales or, Samuel A. Lewis' A Topographical Dictionary of England to determine whether your 'parish' was in fact a "parish" or, if it was instead a chapel of ease (chapelry) within a large parish boundary, etc.[1]
