Cheadle Bulkeley was a township in Cheadle ancient parish in Macclesfield Hundred which became a civil parish in 1866. It covered the rural area that includes parts of modern-day Cheadle. It was bordered to the west by Stockport Etchells, to the north by Heaton Norris, to the east by Stockport and to the south by Cheadle Moseley (later Cheadle Hulme) and Bramhall.

In 1879 it was merged with the township of Cheadle Moseley to become Cheadle. In 1930 they were joined by Stockport Etchells to form the Cheadle and Gatley Urban District. In 1974 the urban district became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in Greater Manchester. (Greater Manchester came into being in 1974.)

The population was 1,577 in 1801 and 5,489 in 1851.

Research Tips

  • The GENUKI and UKBMD pages on Cheshire and its parishes point to many other sources of information on places within the county. The many small parishes and townships that existed before 1866 are treated individually as well as the larger towns and conurbations.
  • A Vision of Britain through Time provides a series of maps from the Ordnance Survey illustrating the towns and villages of Cheshire and also the borders between parishes. The following group of maps provide views of the county at various dates, illustrating the changes in administrative structure.
  • Cheshire Archives and Local Studies have organized a facility to compare 19th century maps (including tithe maps circa 1830) with modern Ordnance Survey maps. These are available for every civil parish. The detail is very magnified and it is difficult to read any placenames on the older maps. Cheshire Archives and Local Studies are the local keepers of historical material for the county.
