    Default All Saints Church, Childwall

    All Saints' Church

    There are registers at All Saints that date from 1557. These are among the earliest in the country. The Norris family of Speke Hall use to attend here. There was once a weird 'child marraige' here in 1544 when Anne, a nine year old daughter William Whitfield was married to Thomas Fletcher aged ten. The reason? The boy's farther John was in debt and to get some money he, 'bargained his sonne to the said Whitfield's daughter.

    Kev.
    Next time you are passing, get a picture of the entrance gate, I think it is called a Lytch gate, I'll have to look that up. From what I remember there are not many examples left.

    you're right. There are not many about. If I'm not mistaken there may be one at the church in Port Sunlight village. (I don't know the name of the church). I'm sure a friend of mine mentioned it when we looking around there.
