Foxt

FOXT, a township, partly in the parish of Ipstones, N. division, and partly in that of Checkley, S. division, of the hundred of Totmonslow, union of Cheadle, N. division of the county of Stafford, 4 miles (N. N. E.) from Cheadle; containing 280 inhabitants. The portion of the township situated in Checkley, is six miles from the parish church. The small village is east of the river Churnet, and of the Uttoxeter canal. A church was built here in 1838, at almost the sole expense of the Rev. John Sneyd, the incumbent of Ipstones, at a cost of £800; it is in the early English style, with a tower, and contains 150 sittings.
