Custodial history:
Hulme, 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. From 1824, until the end of 1845, it had its own body of Police Commissioners; and the affairs of the township were managed by the Hulme Committee of the Manchester Borough Council until 1875. Hulme 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. In 1834, a committee appointed to investigate the Town's Books found them in 'a slovenly and unsatisfactory state. There had been increasing irregularity since 1828; three books were missing and others not completed and balanced up. An accountant had to be called in to try and unravel the extent of the fraud and a salaried Assistant Overseer, Richard Sandiford, was dismissed.
These records were transferred from the Rates Department in the Manchester Town Hall in 1958. Additional deposit received from the City Treasurer, via the Muniments Officer in June 1976.
