Robinhood Farm was located on Birches Lane in Lostock Green, a hamlet in Lostock Gralam, situated about 1 km south of the main town of the parish. The name is found on a 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1882, based on a survey carried out 1874-77. This is the earliest occurrence found so far.

The English Place-Name Society's volume on this part of Cheshire lists Robinhood Farm without source reference or date,[1] which suggests that the editor of the volume thought it likely to be of modern date. Robinhood Farm is included on all the O.S. maps listed below.
