St. Thomas's was built at the expense of Samuel Brierley of Pendleton, Thomas Fletcher of Manchester and his heir, Robert Baxter of Manchester, as a chapelry within the parish of Eccles. The foundation stone was laid in 1767, the church erected in 1772-1773, and it was consecrated on 26 July 1776. It was rebuilt in 1829 and the new church consecrated on 7 October 1831. St. Thomas's was assigned a District from Eccles parish by Order in Council, 7 August 1865 (London Gazette 8 August 1865).
