Kinderton, with Hulme

KINDERTON, with Hulme, a township, in the parish of Middlewich, union and hundred of Northwich, S. division of the county of Chester, 1½ mile (E. S. E.) from Middlewich; containing 555 inhabitants. The powerful barons of Kinderton had possessions here at the time of the Conquest; and until about the end of the sixteenth century, they exercised the right of inflicting capital punishment for crimes committed within the barony. The township comprises 1356 acres of land, of a clayey soil, with some sand. The river Dane passes on the north. The impropriate tithes have been commuted for £39.
