Return to the Liverpool St Peter and St Nicholas page.

Liverpool was a chapelry in the parish of Walton until 1698, when it was constituted a distinct parish.

Liverpool is one of the largest township (population-wise) centres in the whole of England; by 1851, it was almost as populated as Greater London with over 2 million inhabitants. It's comprised of a parish and numerous chapelries.

During the height of the Industrial Revolution, numerous additional smaller churches called chapelries or chapels of ease (a district within an ancient parish assigned to a chapel) were created to handle the burgeoning populations. These chapelries kept church registers of baptisms, usually some burials and in only a few cases, marriages--many of which are ancient in origin.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the chapelries associated with the civil parish of St Nicholas Liverpool as of 1851. By far the vast majority of the church registers (of which many are now transcribed and online) for Liverpool are available at the Lancashire Record Office in Preston. These are also microfilmed and available at The Family History Library and its 4,600 satellite Family History Centers worldwide.  

Recognizing that all authoritative treatises on Lancashire civil parishes differ--some much more than others--in their data regarding all Liverpool [ecclesiastical] districts and townships with chapelries, of necessity several key reference publications and resources have been used to compile the following  Comprehensive List of Liverpool Parishes and all its associated chapelries [under consrtuction]:

Also part of the civil parish of Liverpool are the following chapelries which formed the southern suburb of Liverpool:

See also Walton-on-the-Hill Parish and its chapelries. 


Liverpool also had in-ordinately large Irish population, many of which were Roman Catholic. By 1831, Lewis' Topographical Dictionary of England (published 1831) identified that there were at least five Roman Catholic parishes lying within its boundaries. However, on further study, here is a list all those known Roman Catholic churches within the boundaries of the city--including ten (10) of them; the Family History Library has a few of them (see hyper-links below); there were, prior to 1900, nearly 40 Catholic parishes within Liverpool proper:

St Alban - 1807

St Anne

St Ethelburga - 1843

St Nicholas - 1813 (some burials)

St Anthony - 1804 (see also St Anthony's website for some data online)

St Peter – 1788

St Mary, Woolton – 1707 (see their website, with soon-to-be-posted data online

St Swithin - 1758

St Patrick - 1827

St Joseph - 1798

Here are related links to Roman Catholics living in the City of Liverpool area:


Helpful Links: 

Some of Liverpool's Nonconformist church registers, as well as many Church of England chapelry registers have also been indexed and posted online at the outstanding Lancashire "Online Parish Clerk" project.

Website, "A Church Near You" provides some information on some chapelries and parishes: www.achurchnearyou.com 

Website: "Genuki" gives a list of parishes and many of their chapelries, and also some considerable detail about each, and in particular, the year when each church's history begins:  www.genuki.org.uk
