Poulton le Fylde St Chad is an Ancient Parish and a market town in the Amounderness deanery of the Dioces of Manchester since 1847 and in the county of Lancashire.

Other places in the parish include: Carleton, Fleetwood, Fleetwood on Wyre, Stanah, Great Carleton, Hardhorn with Newton, Little Carleton, and Great and Little Carleton.

The Diocese of Blackburn is a Church of England diocese, covering much of Lancashire, created in 1926 from part of the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese includes the towns of Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, and the cities of Lancaster, and Preston, as well as a large part of the Ribble Valley.

Here is a unique 1848 historical perspective of this parish by topographer, Samuel A. Lewis:

"POULTON-IN-THE-FYLDE St Chad, a markettown and parish, in the union of the Fylde, hundred of Amounderness, N. division of Lancashire; containing, with the new town of Fleetwood, and the townships of Carleton, Hardhorn with Newton, Marton, and Thornton, 16 miles west by northwest of Preston. At Fleetwood, Marton, and Thornton are other livings.

The Wesleyans have a place of worship in the town, where also a Roman Catholic chapel, dedicated to St. John the Evangelist, was built in 1813."[1]
