1375, Clifton and Chedle, Cheshire, England
The history of the of the move of the Savage Family stems from a marriage of Sir John Savage to Margaret Daniell, also known as Margaret Danyers. The manor of Chedle, identified by other genealogists as Cheadle, was held by Sir Roger Chedle. A grandson of Sir Roger Chedle had two daughters, one of whom, Clemence, married William de Bagaly. They had issue a daughter and heiress who married T. Daniel. Clemence, one of the co-heiresses of Sir Roger de Chedle, had Clifton and divers lands in Chedle by inheritance.
The daughter and heiress of Daniell (Danyers), Margaret, married about 49 Edward III John Savage. Sir John Savage, in the right of his wife, became Lord of Chedle.

Bradshaw Manor
Sir John was Esquire of Clifton, Cheshire England. He began building Bradshaw Manor during the reign of King Henry. He was the possessor of several houses and in comparison Bradshaw was a very modest building. Sir John Savage, an extremely wealthy man, was engaged in building a magnificent mansion for himself at Clifton, near Frodsham, which when completed in 1568 was named Rocksavage. Unfortunately this hall fell into decay at an early date and the only likeness now remaining is Brereton Hall, built as a replica of Rocksavage by Sir John's son-in-law, Sir William Brereton. Bradshaw Hall thus outlived Rocksavage by almost two centuries. It was in 1877 that Bradshaw Hall was demolished and replaced by the present buildings, and until that date it had stood in somewhat solitary splendour for over 400 years. As was usual with local halls, in its later years it had considerably diminished in size and undergone several transformations in the name of modernisation - only the external shape and the porch with its date-stone recalled its pre-Elizabethan origins.

The Savage family were Lords over half of Cheadle Township.

The Savage Family of Rocksavage
The Savage family were a powerful an influential family in Cheshire before the 18th century. Since 1368 they had been lords of half the Manor of Cheadle, (later known as Cheadle Moseley), and were the original owners of Bradshaw Hall, having been built by Sir John Savage during the reign of King Henry VIII. In 1569 Sir John built Rocksavage House at Clifton, near Runcorn in Cheshire, which became their main county seat. In 1674, this great red sandstone house was listed in the Hearth Tax returns as having 50 hearths. During the English Civil Wars, a later John Savage, a devoted Royalist, lost Rocksavage to Parliamentarian forces, who looted and demolished much of the building. After the Restoration of Charles I, it was restored to the family and was completely renovated. Sir John's celebrated son-in-law, Sir William Brereton also built Brereton Hall as a replica of Rocksavage. Sir Thomas Savage who was made 1st Viscount Savage married Elizabeth Darcy, 'Countess Rivers' sometime in the early 17th century and the title Earl Rivers remained in the Savage family of several succeeding generations. By the 17th century, Thomas and Elizabeth Savage were members of the royal court, Thomas being Chancellor to Queen Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles I, and his wife Elizabeth was one of her ladies of the bedchamber. Unfortunately, they fell dramatically from grace when they were imprisoned for debt. Though the main branch of the Savage family died out in the 18th century, (through marriage of females of the family line, and no male heir to continue it), and Rocksavage House ceased to exist two centuries ago, the name still survives - in 1998, HM Queen Elizabeth officially opened Rocksavage Power Station (now the Rocksavage Power Company Limited).
