Place-Name Discovery Near Todmorden

In the 1626 Manor Survey of Rochdale, Anningden was written as “Annington” in a reference to 1292 grant of land by Hugh de Eland. The first element may be derived from Old Welsh ann, “ash tree” or Anna, an Old English name as in Annington  Sussex. Anningden was close to Inchfield manor,  a site connected with the Saville family.

The manor is mentioned here in Volume V of  the Victoria County History of Lancashire.

  1. My ancester George Travis who died in 1602 bought land and property in Inchfield from Lord Byron in about 1590/95.Some property still stands to this day.
    Regards Winston Travis

    • Which Lord Byron?

      • Iam getting my dates wrong it was in 1588 between Sir John Byron his son John Byron of Royton Hall and George Travis of Manchester Winston Travis.
