Aldersey

ALDERSEY, a township, in the parish of Coddington, union of Great Boughton, Higher division of the hundred of Broxton, S. division of the county of Chester, 8¾ miles (S. E. by S.) from Chester; containing 138 inhabitants. It comprises 743 acres; the soil is clayey. Salt-works were carried on here in the middle of the sixteenth century; and there is still a brine spring in the neighbourhood, but it is not worked, owing to the distance from which coal must be brought for that purpose.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
