Historically, Garstang was a very large parish including the townships of Claughton, Catterall, Kirkland, Nateby, Winmarleigh, Cabus, Barnacre-with-Bonds, Nether Wyresdale (Scorton), Forton, Holleth, Cleveley/Shireshead, Bilsborrow, and Pilling. Records for these places are listed under Garstang with the exceptions of Pilling which has its own registers dating from the 1600s, and Forton and Holleth, parts of which were also in Cockerham parish. The Cockerham registers contain entries for events which took place at Shireshead chapel which people from Forton, Holleth and Shireshead attended.
