Custodial history:
Newton, in the parish of Manchester, was a separate township, of which a detached portion, Kirkmanshulme, appears to have been taken from Gorton. A local board for the whole township was formed in 1853. A separate sequence of rate books for Kirkmanshulme has been maintained. In 1890 Newton township was incorporated into Manchester. For poor law purposes, Newton was in the Manchester Union from 1841 to 1850; from 1850 it was a member of the Prestwich Union until merged with other townships into the township of North Manchester in 1896.
The records were transferred from the Rates Department and the Committee Clerk's Department in the Manchester Town Hall in 1958.
