From a baptism entry in 1815 at Holy Cross, Church, Woodchurch, I have the following:
"Richard son of Richard Sherlock late of high ........ in the parish of Woodchurch deceased, by Hannah his wife, born ..5 March bap.Oct 15th"
Anyone know what comes after high, to me it looks like the same H as in Hannah, but I'm struggling to find this place in the parish of Woodchurch?

Hi Santos

I thought that, but & I don't know how big you can see the scan but the H in Hannah is the same as in the 1st letter of the name? Was there a High Warren in Woodchurch (I know Warren Nurseries)

Hanow or Harrow,

Favour Hanow, could be the name of a property.

It looks like Hanow to me too, although I haven't a clue what the word means. Let us know if you find out!

Update: Just Googled "Hanow" and it means "name" in Cornish!

I think the word is Harrow. Could it be a corruption of Arrowe, referring to the area that later became Arrowe Park?

I originally thought Hanow but the a and r in richard look very much like the second two letters in the mystery name. Harrow for me .

The "d" in Woodchurch does not seem match the "d" in deceased or Richard. Could it be something else?

There's no doubting the wife's name is Hannah, the first 3 letters in Hannah and the mystery word are the same, me thinks.

Thanks for all the replies thumbsup

I have been going through the Cheshire Tithe maps for the surrounding area, but no luck. I might go through the register a bit to see if I can find a more clear example of it.
Will let you know.

In the early 18th century the village of Arrowe along with its neighbours Prenton, Pensby, Oxton,
Noctorum, Barnston and Thingwall all fell under the Parish of Woodchurch. None of the surrounding
villages had a church at this time which meant that all of these local communities had to use the facilities
at Woodchurch.

Thank you Deredwc.

The fist map shows Limbo Lane where another branch of the Sherlock family once lived, if you take the footpath down it you can still make out the entrance to their smallholding.

FWIW, I think it says "Harrow".
Both r's are the same as the one in 'Sherlock'.
