Custodial history:
The first chapel at Goodshaw in the parish of Whalley was built following an agreement of 1540 (L82/l/l0) to build a church at Morrell Height for the inhabitants of Crawshawbooth, Gambleside, Goodshaw and Loveclough. It was rebuilt c 1780 and again in 1828. It was subordinate to Newchurch in Rossendale from 1551 to 1584, when it came under Haslingden. By Order in Council, 6 October 1849, the township of Higher Booths was taken from Haslingden and assigned to Goodahaw. In 1899 the District of St. John's, Crawshawbooth was formed from Goodshaw by Order in Council 7 October (London Gazette, 17 October 1899). Additions were made to the parish from St. Leonard's, Padiham, St. Matthew the Apostle, Habergham Eaves and the extra parochial district of Dunnockshaw by Order in Council 2 April (London Gazette 13 April 1909).
The records were deposited in the Library as Diocesan Record Office in February 1982 by Rev. R. E. Mallinson.
