Cheshire cheese is one of the oldest recorded named cheeses in British history: it is first mentioned by Thomas Muffet in Health’s Improvement (c. 1580). There is no earlier specific mention of the cheese of the county, but the importance of Cheshire as one of the main dairy regions of England is already emphasised by William of Malmesbury in the Chester section of his Gesta pontificum Anglorum (“History of the bishops of England”: c. 1125).
