Custodial history:
St. Mary's registers date back to 1557, but the church, which in the 19th century was known as St. Bartholomew's, existed for some time before then. The rectors can be traced to the mid 13th century. The size of Radcliffe parish was decreased in 1839 by the creation of the parish of St. Thomas, Radcliffe, by order in Council, 3 May 1839, (London Gazette, 5 July 1839). Further parts of the parish were assigned to St. Peter's, Bury, By Order in Council, 5 February 1873, (London Gazette, 11 February 1873) and St. Andrew's, Radcliffe, by Order in Council, 16 May 1878, (London Gazette, 24 May 1878). The boundaries with the parishes of St. Thomas and St. Peter were altered in 1973, by Pastoral Order, 6 December, (London Gazette. 20 December 1973).
