=== Parish History ===
The chapelry of Ellenbrook ELLENBROOK, (St Mary the Virgin was founded ) a '''chapelry''', with a railway station, in 1758 within [[Eccles, Lancashire]]&nbspparish, Lancashire; Ancient Parishon the Manchester and Wigan railway, 2½ miles E of Tyldesley. It was founded in 1758. Historically within the Diocese of Chester, the modern parish is part of the diocese of Manchester. Ellenbrook is part of the City of Salford.<ref>John M. Wilson, ''[http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/place/25078 Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales]'' published in 1870-72. </ref>
Historically within the Diocese of Chester, the modern parish is part of the diocese of Manchester.  The chapel was founded under the patronage of the Earl of Ellesmere.  Ellenbrook is part of the City of Salford.  Though its&nbsp; origins are uncertain, Ellenbrook chapel possibly existed in the early 13th century. It is not known whether a contemporary reference to a chapel at Worsley referred to Ellenbrook chapel, or to another chapel in the hall of the lords of Worsley. It was an outlying chapel within the parish of Eccles, the nearest churches being at [[Eccles, Lancashire|Eccles,&nbsp;Lancashire]],&nbsp; [[Leigh Lancashire|Leigh, Lancashire]] and [[Deane, Lancashire]] in Bolton. It was probably established through a grant from the Benedictine Abbot of Stanlawe Abbey (on the Mersey estuary) to Richard de Worsley, with the Benedictines staffing the chapel and paying sixpence a year to Eccles church to acknowledge the chapel's subsidiary status. The monks later moved from Stanlow to Whalley Abbey.<br>In 1581, the chapel was endowed by Dorothy Brereton. Dorothy, daughter of Sir Richard Egerton of Ridley, Cheshire had married Richard Brereton of Worsley and Tatton, Lord of the Manor of Worsley, in 1572. Richard died in 1598, and was buried in Eccles Parish Church, and Dorothy married Sir Peter Legh of Lyme Hall, Cheshire in 1604. She was widowed again in 1636.
Dame Dorothy Legh died in 1639, and was buried in Eccles church. She bequeathed £400 to Ellenbrook chapel to buy Common Head Farm at Mosley Common, the income from which established Dame Dorothy Legh's Charity, which continues today. Following a legal dispute in the 1650s, it was determined that the charity would support the minister of Ellenbrook chapel and the local poor.
Perhaps the most notorious of the 17th century ministers was William Coulburn, who was at Ellenbrook from 1657 to around 1663. In 1663 he was arrested, possibly for trying to steal money through confidence tricks, an act which he perpetrated in various other parts of England in subsequent years. Despite numerous question marks over his character, Coulburn returned to Lancashire as minister at&nbsp; [[Mottram in Longendale, Cheshire]], where he was buried following his death in around 1697.
