About Dukinfield

Located 6.3 miles (10.1 km) east of Manchester, Dukinfield is a town in Tameside, Greater Manchester, England, on the south bank of the River Tame opposite Ashton-under-Lyne. There were 19,306 people living there as of the 2011 Census.

The town grew as a result of the Industrial Revolution, which brought coal mining and cotton manufacturing to the area, both of which were already part of the historic county of Cheshire.

A set of four flints from the late Neolithic/early Bronze Age is the earliest indication of human activity in the Dukinfield area. When the items were found at Dukinfield Hall, they were interpreted as proof of a prehistoric community there. After the time of the Romans, no further traces of human habitation are found in the area. During the reign of Emperor Tetricus I, a bronze Roman coin from the 3rd century was unearthed there.

Dukinfield, from the Old English duce and feld, literally means “Raven of the Field.”

According to archival evidence, the township was formerly part of Dunham Massey’s fee. Around 1190, it was under Matthew de Bramhall’s control, and the following generations of his family used the surname “De Dokenfeld” to refer to themselves. The Dukinfields called the moated Dukinfield Old Hall—which dates back to the time of the Norman conquest and was restored during the Tudor era—their home until the early 18th century.  Colonel Robert Duckenfield of Dukinfield Hall was a prominent leader in the New Model Army during the English Civil War. In 1665, Robert Dukinfield, the son of Colonel Robert Dukinfield, was given his father’s baronetcy, Dukinfield of Dukinfield, Cheshire. For 500 years, until Sir William Dukinfield Daniel’s widow wed artist John Astley in 1767, the manor belonged to the Dukinfield family.
