Custodial history:
Chorlton Roe (from 1832, Chor1ton-upon-Medlock) was a separate township in the Parish of Manchester. It had its own Overseers of the Poor and Highways and from 1822, its own body of Police Commissioners. In 1838 it was included within the boundaries of the newly incorporated Borough of Manchester. From May 1842, when the Police Commissioners transferred their powers to the Borough Council until 1875, there was a separate Chorlton-upon-Medlock Committee to deal with its affairs. For Poor Law Purposes, it was part of the Chorlton-upon-Medlock Union of Poor Law Guardians from 1837 until 1896, when it was merged into the township of South Manchester.
With the exception of the Overseers' Accounts, 1718-94, which were donated by Mr John Higson of Droylsden in 1861, the records listed here were transferred from the Rates Department and the Committee Clerk's Department in the Manchester Town Hall in 1958.
