Extracts from Earwacker, Ormrod, Lysons

The Kelsalls are West Cheshire people and for centuries can be traced in various towns and parishes in the Hundred of Wirral in that county, especially on the borders of Delamere Forest. Tarvin, Cheadle, Wilmslow, Plemonstall and Kelsall are ..such villages.

The eldest branch of the Kelsalls who were of Kelsall in Tarvin became extinct at an early period: a younger branch was of Bradshaw and Heathside, both in Cheadle.

James Kelsall a younger son of the Bradshaw family settled in Audley in Staffordshire and died in 1583 at the age of 107 years leaving a numerous family, a branch of which settled at Barthomley and became extinct in 1802.

Another branch, which was of Trafford (or  W____ Trafford, has become extinct also in the male line, the heiress of this branch married J. Clegg of Withington”.

Township of Kelsall – The village is on the edge the Forest of Delamere, 3 miles NE from Tarvin and 8 miles from Chester. The manor formerly belonged to the Kelsalls who took their name from it. It is now in …. between the Earl of Plymouth by inheritance from the Whitleys and of John …. By inheritance from the Dones. Kelsall Hall is now a farm house.

 

Lysons Magna Britannica, Vol II, Part II p797

Earwacker says “It should be noted that the names Kilshaw and Culshaw instead of being a corruption of Culcieth may be a corruption of the far more common Cheshire name of Kelsall.

HENRY KELSALL (of Reading)

 

Henry Kelsall of Reading (circ 1470) was a clothier there but as his name and those of his married sisters show was connected with East Cheshire.

He was made a burgess in 1475 and was elected to represent Reading in Parliament in 1482.  He died in 1493.   His will directs his body shall be buried in St.Lawrence Reading on the W. of the ‘altar  of  fern’.  He bequeathed to his brother Thomas K.  his lands at Reading and also lands at Southampton which he had inherited from another brother Roger K. If Thomas K. dies, the estate was to pass to the next heir male of Thomas K. In default of these, to pass to the men named to keep up a mass in the church.  In default the money to be given to the churchwardens of the Lady Chapel at Knottisford (Knutsford) Cheshire. Money is left for a stone for himself and his wife Agnes.

 

Bequests to:

I   Margaret Bosden my sister and her daughters Maude and Margaret B.

II  Son and daughters of my brother Thomas K.

III Janet Twiston, my sister.

IV  Charles K., son of my brother Roger; Elizabeth K, daughter of Roger, and  to

the “mynnchen” (Abbess) of Romsey, and Ann daughter, and Thomas K. a son –

V   Cousins at Knutsford, children of his sister Elizabeth Madox –

“I will and charge that a tenor bell be made according to the four bells     that now hang in the steeple of St.Lawrence Reading to the sum of     ,  the     scripture to be made about the same bell “Henry, the bell of Fern”.

The bell was erected 1498-99, and there is a record of its consecration –

Has been subsequently recast but is still called ‘Harry’. His grave stone still exists, but has been much mutilated and the brass stolen. It was shown to me in 1893 inside the church, under the tower over West Porch, on the righthand side

– no name.

 

From the Registers of the Church we find:

 

1519 Randal Kelsalis modir [?] buried.

1529 Randall Kelsall obiit

1541 Elizabeth Kelsall (Kelmshall)

 

R.K. was probably a near relative, as he was specially excused fees for  having the bell rung –
