Cheslyn-Hay

CHESLYN-HAY, an extra-parochial liberty, locally in the parish of Cannock, union of Penkridge, E. division of the hundred of Cuttlestone, S. division of the county of Stafford, 7 miles (S. E. by S.) from Penkridge; containing 774 inhabitants, and comprising by computation 790 acres. It includes the large and irregularly-built village of Wyrley-Bank, which extends from one mile south of Cannock to the township of Great Wyrley: an eminence here, planted with firs, may be seen at a considerable distance. The opening of the neighbouring coal-mines has much improved the place, which now has a meeting-house for Methodists, and a Sunday school.

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