History[edit]

At the time of the Norman Conquest of England, Staining was part of the hundred of Amounderness, in the possession of Earl Tostig, the brother of King Harold II.[1] Tostig died at the Battle of Stamford Bridge and his lands were subsequently taken over by the Normans. Between 1069 and 1086 William the Conqueror gave Amounderness to Anglo-Norman baron Roger the Poitevin.[2] Staining was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Staininghe.[3] The village was estimated in that survey to contain six carucates of land.[3]

Governance[edit]

Historically, Staining, as part of the township of Hardhorn-with-Newton, was in the ecclesiastical parish of Poulton-le-Fylde, in the hundred of Amounderness, an ancient division of the historic county of Lancashire.[1][4] Today, Staining is a civil parish, governed by a parish council.

Staining is represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom as part of Fylde. It elects one MP by the first past the post system of election. Since the 2010 general election, Fylde has been represented at Parliament by Conservative MP Mark Menzies.[5] The parish is also part of the North West England constituency of the European Parliament.
