Andrew Bryant's Map of Cheshire, 1831. Robin Hood Green is indicated slightly southeast of centre / Cheshire Local History Association.

Located in Lostock Gralam, Robin Hood Green is first recorded on Andrew Bryant's 1831 Map of Cheshire.[1] Dodgson lists this place-name under 'Lostock Green', probably regarding it as another name for that hamlet,[2] but Bryant's map has it immediately west of Lostock Gralam, whereas Lostock Green is located c. 1 km south of Lostock Gralam. The two Greens can thus hardly be identical, unless Bryant's map has Robin Hood Green in the wrong place. The place-name would seem to be defunct, for as of January 2017 I have not found any mention of it on the Web.

  1. Bryant, A, Map of Cheshire (1831) (Cheshire Local History Association: 16th - 19th Century maps of Cheshire). According to Dodgson, John McN.; Rumble, Alexander R. The Place-Names of Cheshire, pts. I-V (English Place-Name Society, vols. XLIV-XLVIII, LIV, LXXIV) (Cambridge, 1970-72; [s.l.], 1981; Nottingham, 1997), vol. I, p. xxv, incorrectly cites Bryant's first name initial as W.
