Description

Excerpt from Lancashire and Cheshire, Past and Present, Vol. 1: A History and a Description of the Palatine Counties of Lancaster and Chester, Forming the North-Western Division of England, From the Earliest Ages to the Present Time (1867) Passing onward to another dominant race, and another form of society, we shall find the confusion produced by more than five hundred years of foreign ravage and internal strife, succeeded by the stern rule of the Norman and Plantagenet kings, and the Scandinavian sea-kings subdued or swept from the surrounding seas and islands of Britain. Under the tyrannical but energetic administration of the Normans, we shall see the present counties of Lancaster and Chester ruled by great military chiefs, and secured against attack from abroad by a military organization, which rendered the whole people available for the purposes of national defence, both by sea and land.'r During this period some symptoms of returning prosperity will be discovered in the forming of municipal governments, either by royal or other charters, at Chester, Lancaster, Manchester, Liverpool, Wigan, Preston, and other of the more ancient boroughs of the two counties.
