Chapelry History[edit | edit source]
CHORLTON-UPON-MEDLOCK (St Savior) was one of eight chapels of ease serving within that township, including St All Saints (1808, St Ambrose (1884), St Clement's (1793), Luke's (1804) and All Saints (1808), St Matthias (1876), and St Stephens (1854), all within the parish boundaries of Manchester Our Lady, St George and St Denys (the Cathedral), in the hundred of Salford, S. division of the county of Lancaster. The name of this place, formerly Chorlton-Row, was changed, on an act of parliament being obtained for the township, to Chorlton-upon-Medlock, as a better than its ancient designation, the river Medlock (which separates it from the township of Manchester) forming its entire boundary on the north. It was created by the year 1836. There are meeting-houses for Evangelical Friends, Presbyterians, General Baptists, Independents, Primitive Methodists, Unitarians, and Wesleyans.
