(F. White & Co. - History, Gazetteer and Directory of Cheshire. 1860, Sheffield.)
"There was a Heald House Farm located in Morley Green on the Mobberley road just opposite to where Eccups lane goes off to Lindow Common. Haven't been lately. My great uncle lived there and it was his postal address although I never saw a name board. His name was Bower and several generations farmed there from the mid 1800's until about the 1960s" (Ian Young 30.1.03)

The house buildings are clearly visible, but not named, on the 1882 map.
