The following is copied from a Lostock Gralam website, http://www.geocities.com/mar1elene/lostockgralam.html:
Lostock Gralam is a township and considerable village, 2 miles NNE from Northwich, on the road from that town to Knutsford. The township contains 1,706A. 3r. 22p. of land, and, in 1841, had 102 houses and 574 inhabitants; population in 1801: 361; in 1831:537. Rateable value, £2642. 5s. The township is intersected by the North Staffordshire Canal, which has a wharf here, usually called the Wincham Wharf. The manor in former times belonged to Hame, who was slain at the battle of Nantwich. On the advance of Hugh Lupus to take possession of his new earldom, Hugh de Runchamp had a grant of it from the earl, and Gralam, his son, assumed the local name. It descended from the Lostocks to the Holfords, and from them with the Holford Hall estate, in Plumley, to Peter Langford Brooks, Esq., of Mere, and is now possessed by Thomas John Langford Brookes, Esq., besides whom Wilbraham Egerton, Esq., and Lee Porcher Townshend, Esq., Mrs Forrest, Wm. Barker, Esq., Mr Josiah Taylor, Mr Richard Taylor, are proprietors.
Note: I have Gralam as grandson of Hugh de Runchamp.
