HADFIELDs of Dukinfield and Dukinfield Hall, Cheshire

The following information was researched by Roger HADFIELD MA, F.R.G.S; Tony BURTON and David HADFIELD


Many sources of genealogical information refer to either Dukinfield, Dukenfield, Duckinfield and Duckenfield - all references relate to the same location, Dukinfield.  The Hadfield connection with Dukinfield commences with Sir Thomas of Duckenfield (1422-1461).  By the 1881 census there were many Hadfield families and individuals living in some fifty separate dwellings. It is worth noting that the words 'Dukinfield Hall' were also used to denote an area, not just a place, particularly when used on BDM certificates.  The area appears to have taken into account Globe Square, Globe Lane, Old Hall Street, Longsden Terrace, Hopwood Street, Hadfield Street, Croft Street, Mill Street, Platt Street and adjacent parts of Astley and Ashton Streets.
