An excellent resource for finding where our ancestors lived “once upon a time” is this website: e-mapping Victorian Cheshire: Cheshire’s Tithe Maps Online.
In 1842 John and Frances BROADHURST lived in Hale, Cheshire. John and Frances were my 2nd Great Grandparents. Their house was situated about where the asterisk is shown below and all the land rented by John Broadhurst, at the time of the mapping, is shown in yellow on the left map. A modern day map is shown on the right and all the land around the asterisk is the Manchester International Airport. Old structures remain at this location but at this time I do not know if any 1842 structures remain.

The lands were leased from the owner, John Mason, Earl of Stamford.
