Biddulph & District Genealogy & Historical Society Biddulph Grange by Kath Walton

Local and Family History for the Biddulph area


Welcome to the web site of the Biddulph and District Genealogy and Historical Society. The aim of the Society is to promote genealogy and local history particularly pertaining to the Biddulph area.

This will be achieved by:

  • undertaking research and publishing wherever possible
  • purchasing resources that may become available or required by the society
  • having a regular programme of speakers


A Summer Walk: the Society isn't organising a summer walk but following Mr. Tony Bonson's excellent talk on the “Waterpower on the Rive Dane and its Tributaries” we recommend you join Mr. Lyndon Murgatroyd on Sunday the 3rd of July 2016 for a walk around Congleton entitled “Mill Walk and Industrial Yarns” which starts from Congleton Museum at 2 p.m. The layout of Congleton has changed considerably since the first silk mill was built in 1752 – see how Congleton’s textile heritage affected the town. The price including cream tea £5.00.

Following the talk on Monday the 20th of June when Messrs. Nigel Daly and Brian Vowles presented a talk entitled “Further Developments at Biddulph Old Hall” we can announce that two further visitor days have been arranged. They are on Saturday the 2nd and Saturday the 16th of July between midday and 4 p.m. Light refreshments will be available and a contribution to the restoration of the building is requested.
