The parish of Garstang is--next to the parish of Kirkham--the largest in the hundred, and from its situation, antiquity and surroundings, it was thought that its records could not fail to yield much that would be interesting to the historian and genealogist. In this respect my hopes have been more than realized, as I venture to think the following pages will show. Every available source of information has been consulted, and no effort has been spared to exhaust the subject without printing what would be of little or no value. I am greatly indebted to many owners of land in Garstang and possessors of title-deeds and other manuscripts relating to the parish, whose names will be found in the foot notes of the History; but I am under special obligation to the following gentlemen, and I wish here to record my sense of it, viz: the Rev. Wilson Pedder, M. A., vicar of Garstang; the Rev. W. ArmitStead, of St. Thomas's, Garstang; the Rev. J. D. Banister, late incumbent of Pilling; the Rev. J. W. Waithman.m.a., vicar of Pilling; Lord Winmarleigh; James Nicholson, Esq., F.S.A., of Warrington; Richard Pedder, Esq., of Ulverston; Richard Veevers, Esq., of Preston, and the Bailiff and Burgesses of the town of Garstang. To my friends J. E. Bailey, Esq., F.S.A., of Stretford; J. P. Earwaker, Esq., F.S.A., of Withington; Colonel J. L. Chester, LL.D., of London, and William Beamont, Esq., of Orford hall, I also tender my sincere thanks for kindly assistance. H. F. Carr Hill, Rochdale, December 1SjS. Claughton, Cleveley(part), Forton (part), Garstang, Holleth (part), Kirkland, Nateby, Pilling (part), Winmarleigh,...
