Dinkley

DINKLEY, a township, in the parish, union, and Lower division of the hundred, of Blackburn, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 6ΒΌ miles (N.) from Blackburn; containing 183 inhabitants. This is a small township which, in the reign of Edward IV., was possessed by the Morleys; it has been held since that time by various families, among whom were the Talbots, Warrens, and Bulkeleys. From the last it passed into the family of Fleming-Leycester. A Roman altar which existed in the township, was removed to Stonyhurst.
