Name: Elizabeth de CULCHETH , Heiress of Peasfurlong 1
Birth: ABT 1241 in Peasfurlong, Winwick, Lancashire, England
Death: AFT 1276 1
To Elizabeth, the second daughter of Gilbert de Culcheth, was assigned PEASFURLONG. By her husband, Adam de Peasfurlong, she had two daughters, Margery and Beatrice, the former of whom carried this quarter of Culcheth to her husband, William son of Richard de Radcliffe of Radcliffe. It descended regularly in this family until the time of Henry VIII, when on a failure of male issue it passed to a junior branch represented by Robert Radcliffe, Lord FitzWalter, created Earl of Sussex in 1529. This and other Lancashire estates were sold to provide his daughters' dowries.

This township or civil parish was in Lancashire. It was in Winwick ecclesiastical parish and in Leigh poor law Union. It should not be confused with the Culcheth area in Newton township, Manchester. It had four ancient, ill-defined quarters, called CULCHETH (in the north), HOLCROFT (in the east), PEASFURLONG (in the west) and RISLEY (in the south). In 1933 the civil parish was dissolved and its area divided between Golborne Urban District (Culcheth), Croft civil parish (Holcroft, Peasfurlong and part of Risley areas) and Woolston civil parish (remaining part of Risley area).
In 1974, Croft, Woolston and the Culcheth and Newchurch wards of Golbourne Urban District, i.e. including the whole of the area of the former civil parish of Culcheth, became part of Warrington District, Cheshire.
