    • "On the 20th inst. at the Cathedral by the Rev. H.H. Westmore M.A. Mr Edward Bancroft of London to Frances Elizabeth daughter of Mr. Peter Shone Davies of Greenheyes."

      Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser 22 December 1855.

      From Wikipedia:
      "In medieval times, the district was known as Chorlton Row and was a township of the ancient parish of Manchester in the Salford Hundred of Lancashire. Towards the end of the 18th century, it developed as a residential suburb of Manchester and in the extreme north of the township a number of cotton mills were established. In 1820 the parish church of All Saints was built. Development began in 1793/94 and most of the important streets were given impressive names, Oxford Street, Cambridge Street and Grosvenor Street.

      Kro Bar, 325 Oxford Road, Chorlton-on-Medlock
      Over the following 30 years residential development spread southwards as far as Tuer Street: and by the mid-1840s to High Street. Few dwellings of that period remain today apart from Waterloo Place, 323, 325, 327 & 333 Oxford Road, and Grove House (316-324).

      As late as 1848, Elizabeth Gaskell mentions Greenheys rural character, in her novel Mary Barton. In the 1840s the Greenheys area became home to members of Manchester's wealthier Jewish business class, including Samuel Mendel. Other notable Greenheys residents, later in the 19th century, included Sir Charles Halle

      In 1830, the town hall on Cavendish Street was built to the designs of Richard Lane. On the creation of the municipal borough of Manchester in 1838 the township was absorbed into the borough. At this time the southern area was still partly rural with some larger dwellings of wealthy people (e.g., John Owens in Nelson Street). After the Poor Law Reform of 1834 the district became part of the Chorlton Poor Law Union and the offices of the Board of Guardians were built in Cavendish Street (these are now the Ormond Building of the Metropolitan University). The arrival of Owens College in 1873 was the beginning of a different kind of development leading to the academic campus of today.

      Though most of the township was originally middle class in character by the early 20th century it was very much a working class district. [8, 9]
