Winwick Parish held very extensive boundaries, reaching into Newton in Makerfield, Ashton in Makerfield, along with several other townships. In 1845 The Winwick Rectory Act was passed dividing the old Parish of Winwick St Oswald into at least nine new parishes including Winwick St Oswald, Croft with Southworth, Newton-in-Makerfield Emmanuel, Newton St Peter, Newchurch in Culcheth, Golborne, Lowton, Ashton-in-Makerfield, and Ashton St Thomas. It was enacted that the Parish and Rectory of Ashton-in-Makerfield should comprise the whole of the township of Ashton-in-Makerfield "except that part which is called the Town End", and that the Town End, together with the whole of the township of Haydock should form the Parish and Vicarage of Ashton St Thomas.[2]
