Antrobus is a hamlet within the lordship of Over Whitley and lies between Stretton and Great Budworth. All those who are named Antrobus take their name from this Cheshire hamlet, which appeared in the Domesday Survey as "Entrebus". The two components of the name "Entre-bus" are derived from the Latin "inter" and the Old French "bus" or "busc" from which comes "bois", meaning "a wood". The name therefore means "Amid the woods".
