New Hall was in Ashton in Makerfield where Ashton Golf Club now is.
Garswood Hall was also in Ashton in Makerfield, between Garswood Old Road and where the East Lancs Road now runs.

Any new building, built on behalf of a prominent person, would be a 'hall'. After a family had lived in an area for a number of years, a building, built on behalf of that family, would be known as 'new' hall.
Ince has had many 'halls' over the years.
