Manchester Family Names

Old Historic Families

of Lancashire, Cheshire & North Western
England


Many of the old families of
Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire can trace their ancestries
back to the Norman Conquest of 1066 or earlier.
Their names effectively echo the long history of the region and
are remembered today in districts and townships whose streets
and placenames record their passing.
