medieval Cheshire

An important natural resource of Cheshire was salt: Below the surface of the county lie large deposits of saline rock, the presence of which may well have been known to the Romans. . . In the Middle Ages, the salt producing towns were called, collectively, the Wiches, — Nantwich, Middlewich, Northwich. Medieval Cheshire, Large areas of salt lands were owned by abbeys and clerics, but Lay owners of salt houses, where salt pans filled with salt water were boiled, were even more numerous and diverse in status. . . . Among the proprietors of salt houses, land, or messuages in the Wiches were Venables ... [and many other Cheshire families].

Kinderton cum Hulme was a township in Middlewich ancient parish, Northwich hundred, which became a civil parish in 1866. The civil parish was abolished in 1894 to become parts of Middlewich and Kinderton.
