Custodial history:
The ancient parish of Eccles consisted of the townships of Barton, Worsley, Pendleton, Pendlebury and Clifton. Until 1776 when St. Thomas's, Pendleton, was consecrated, the only other place of worship in the parish was Ellenbrook Chapel attached to Worsley Hall. St. Thomas's was followed in 1791 by St. Peter's Swinton, in 1838 by St. George's, later St. Paul's, Walkden Moor, in 1842 by St. John's, Pendlebury, in 1843 by St. Catherine's, Barton and in 1846 by St. Mark's, Worsley, all of which Chapelries sent copies of their registers to Eccles for inclusion in the Parish registers of the mother church. They were assigned their own Districts later in the 19th century when many other parishes were taken from the ancient parish to accommodate the increasing population.
The records were deposited in the Library as Diocesan Record Office in 1977 and 1979, by Rev. G. S. Parkinson.
