Custodial history:
Ardwick, in the Parish of Manchester, was a separate township with its own overseers of' the poor and highways under the Manchester Church wardens until 1838, when it became part of the new Borough of Manchester. At about the same time, in 1839, the parish of St. Thomas, Ardwick was set up as a separate entity. Ardwick however retained its own overseers and the affairs of the township were managed by the Ardwick Committee of the Manchester Borough Council until 1875. It was in the Chorlton on Medlock Union of Poor Law Guardians from 1837 and the Township of South Manchester for Poor Law purposes from 1896. No records other than ratebook appear to have survived of the Ardwick Police Commissioners set up under the Act of 6 GIV, c5 (1825). The registers of St. Thomas's Church, Ardwick have been microfilmed from their commencement in 1740 to 1877, and
The records were transferred from the Rates Department and the Committee Clerk's Department in the Manchester Town Hall in 1958
