Lancashire was comprised of 69 ancient parishes, but well over 500 extant churches prior to 1851. Here's a list of Lancashire parishes and township chapelries that begin with the letter A and the pre-1858 courts that had ecclesiastical (including probate) jurisdiction over them.  These jurisdictions held authority over and records for such events as issuing marriage licences, bonds, allegations, oversight in ecclesiastical (church) court proceedings and in other important matters pertaining to ancestry.
