Salford Sacred Trinity, Lancashire Genealogy
Sacred Trinity Salford, an ancient chapel and one of twelve chapelries in Salford Township (as of 1885), and lying within the civil parish of Manchester [which also see]. The chapel was created by 1635.
Here is an 1870 historical perpsective of this large township--then with only seven chapelries--and surburb of the ancient parish of Manchester (the Cathedral of Our Lady, St George and St denys) by the famed topographer, John Marius Wilson:
"SALFORD, a town, a township, seven chapelries, a district, and a hundred, in Lancashire. The infantry barracks, in Regent-road, have accommodation for a commanding officer, 3 field officers, 30 other officers, and 978 men. The workhouse stands in Eccles New-road and has accommodation for more than 300 inmates. The borough boundaries are the same municipally as parliamentarily; and include all Salford, Pendleton, and Broughton townships, and part of Pendlebury.
Holy [and sometimes called, Sacred] Trinity is one of Salford's [twelve]...chapelries ...being aggregately conterminate with [Salford] township, [is]...in Manchester (Cathedral) parish.
