Excerpt from Cheshire Gleanings

Cheshire has been styled the "seed plot of gentility," and one of its homely proverbs claims, that its hardy sons are "chief of men." The county abounds in memorials of the past, and yet is full of the vigour of the present day. Around its old halls and picturesque villages linger the memories of stem battles on hard-fought fields, of gallant struggles, of spendthrift folly, and of heroic endeavour, and the bright legends of bravery and courtly grace have too often had their shadow in stories of tyranny and crime.

The volume of "Cheshire Gleanings," whilst making no pretence to be a systematic history of the county, is an effort to present some of its most salient characteristics.
