The English first encountered the long bow in the hands of the Welsh archers during the reign of Edward I and his war with the Welsh in 1277. The king soon adopted its use and passed a law that every man and boy including the nobility should learn to use it and practice in areas called butts. The son of Edward III was also called Edward, Earl of Chester. He is often referred to as the Black Prince but this title was not used during his lifetime. The Prince took a personal interest in the recruitment of archers from the Hundred of Macclesfield and Cheshire. He also introduced mounted archers and gave sealed indentures to members of the nobility to recruit their own followers.

The Cheshire archers fought in many engagements in England and France in the Middle Ages. Battles at which there were sizeable numbers of Cheshire archers include Agincourt and Crecy.
