Choose from the townships and villages listed below to read from various Trade Directory Histories with lists of inhabitants and occupations.  The authors concerned themselves initially with the 'establishment' figures of the day; however in larger habitations, (and later editions) the listed residents are more complete.  Of these, Northwich was the largest in the area, (although not necessarily IN area), having  several pages of detailed information; this is reflected in the numerous 'Northwich'  links below.
