Melling Parish Council Crest largeHalsall of Halsall

(Silver and blue, three Dragons)

This stands for the foundation of the ancient ‘Chapel of Melling in the Parish of Hallsall’.

This chapel dates back to earlier than 1190.

The ancient church Vestry Meetings are the beginning of Local Government.

Molyneux of Melling

(Blue and gold, cross with a crescent)

This detail is from an old memorial in Melling Church.  It shows the Moline Cross, with a crescent.

“The Molyneux family had long claimed a manor and made Melling their principal home, their house being known as the Hall in the Wood (Pleadings, 1511).

Tatlock of Cunscough

(Blue and silver, a dolphin)

This represents the Tatlock family who settled in Melling about 1200.  In the 17th century  John Tatlock and his family founded the Tatlock Charity for Educational purposes

The Bootle family

This detail from an old memorial in Melling church shows a Weaver’s comb.  This distinguished family married into the Wilbraham family.  Lethom House was built by Sir Thomas Bootle about 1734.  (The ancient Bootle arms showed 3 combs).

It is interesting to note that the old inn ‘Bootle Arms’ was sometimes called ‘The House Comb’ evidently a misnomer originating from the comb in the Coat of Arms.
