Chapelry History

PADDINGTON, an ecclesiastical district, partly in the township of Pendleton, parish of Eccles, and partly in the district of Christ-Church, Salford, parish of Manchester, hundred of Salford, S. division of Lancashire. This place, which is situated on the west side of Manchester, on the road to Bolton, was constituted an ecclesiastical district in July 1846, under the provisions of the act 6th and 7th Victoria, cap. 37. The area of the district is about half a square mile. Divine service is at present performed in a licensed room, which also serves as a Sunday school; but it is proposed to erect a church, in the early English style, of which the estimated cost is £3000. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Crown and the Bishop of Manchester, alternately. There are two places of worship for dissenters.
