GRIMSARGH, with Brockholes, a '''chapelry''', in the parish and union of [[Preston St Wilfrid, Lancashire|Preston St Wilfrid]], hundred of Amounderness, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 4 miles northeast of Preston. The chapel, dedicated to St. Michael, was consecrated in 1726. Other places in the parish include: Elston, Brockholes, and Brockhole. <ref>Samuel A. Lewis, ''[http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=50991#s14 A Topographical Dictionary of England]'' (1848), pp. 340-343. Adapted. Date accessed: 14 October 2013.</ref>
The name Grimsargh is said to derive from an Old Norse name Grímr with Norse erg. One reference lists it as coming from the Domesday Book's Grimesarge, "at the temple of Grimr" (a name for Odin).<br>
