Return to the Lancashire Probate Records page.

Return to the Lancashire Church Records beginning with A.

Liverpool is one of the largest (population-wise) centres in the whole of England. It's comprised of several ancient (pre-1837) parishes and numerous chapelries. During the height of the Industiral Revolution, numerous additional smaller churches called chapelries were created to handle the load of burgeoning populations. These chapelries kept church registers many of which are ancient in origin.

Below is a comprehensive list of parishes and chapelries associated with Greater Liverpool by 1851. By far the vast majority of the probate records and church registers (of which many are now transcribed and online) for Liverpool are available at the Lancashire Record Office in Preston. These are also microfilmed and available at The Family History Library and its 4,700 satellite Family History Centers worldwide. To determine which probate courts held jurisdiction over the Greater Liverpool region, return to the "Liverpool" section of the Lancashire Probate Jurisdictions, Parishes I through L page.

Recognizing that all authoritative treatises on Lancashire civil parishes differ--some much more than others--in their data regarding the township chapelries, several key reference publications have been used here to compile a more comprehensive list of Liverpool parishes and all its associated chapelries:

Also visit the following townships and note their respective chapelries which are also close in proximity to central Liverpool. Liverpool therefore comprised the following townships and their chapelries, which see treatises for each:
