google maps have the area as 'Bollinbrook'.
If I remember right, the river through Macclesfield is the Bollin, so 'Bollinbrook', not 'Bollingbrook'.

Thanks for replies and correcting my spelling!

In 1939 Bollinbrook Farm, appears to be a dairy farm run by Mr & Mrs Brocklehurst.
And Swiss Cottage appears to be owned by cotton textile merchant John Walton.

In 1911 the Brocklehurst family from Staffordshire appear at Bollin Brook Farm, Upton, Cheshire - the research continues!
