Endon

ENDON, a township, in the parish and union of Leek, N. division of the hundred of Totmonslow and of the county of Stafford, 4½ miles (S. W. by W.) from Leek; containing 571 inhabitants. The townships of Endon and Stanley together constitute the chapelry of Endon, which comprises by measurement 2653 acres. Stone of very good quality is extensively quarried at Moss Hall farm, for flagging, railway blocks, and strong building uses. The road from Leek to Newcastle passes through the village, and a branch of the Grand Trunk canal through the chapelry. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Earl of Macclesfield, with a net income of £120: the tithes have been commuted for land; the glebe comprises 92 acres. The chapel is a neat plain edifice, with a handsome tower crowned by turrets and pinnacles; the angles of the building are embellished with turrets. A school here is endowed with £7 per annum; and there is a bequest of 70 acres of land, producing £73, to be divided among the poor of Stanley.
