Stockton Society - Cheshire, England

The Stockton Society was formed in May 1990 at a meeting, in Bunbury, Cheshire, of a small group of four Family Historians researching the name STOCKTON in the South Cheshire and North Shropshire areas. The aim of the Society is to promote research in the name STOCKTON and its variants by the pooling of research effort and information, leading to a better understanding of the history of the Stockton Family in this part of England. To that end, transcriptions of Parish Registers and some Census returns of the Parishes most commonly associated with the Stockton name have been made. Copies of early wills of Stocktons from Malpas and Bunbury and other Cheshire parishes and a few from Lancashire and Shropshire have also been obtained and transcribed.

Members have also deposited copies of their family trees with the Society. The Society collects any items relating to the name Stockton. Links have been established with Stockton researchers in Australia, Canada and The United States, all tracing their roots back to the Cheshire and Shropshire region. The Society meets once per year, usually in June, in Bunbury, to review progress, meet new members and, if time allows, pursue further research at Chester Record Office.
