Parish History[edit | edit source]
Hyde, St George was founded in 1832 as a chapel to Stockport: St. Mary the Virgin, becoming the district church for the township of Hyde in 1843. The boundaries of "The Chapelry District of Saint George, Hyde" were described in the London Gazette on 10 January 1843:
"The chapelry district of Saint George, Hyde, is to consist of the township of Hyde, being bounded on or towards the north and east by the parish of Mottram in Longdendale; on the south by the township of Werneth, in the parish of Stockport; and on the west by the River Mersey, which divides it from the parish of Manchester" 
Hyde Saint George in Cheshire was created a parish in 1843 from Stockport Saint Mary Ancient Parish.
Prior to 1831, the Church of England had no place of worship in the township, and many of the inhabitants of Hyde attended either Stockport St Mary, Mottram, or at Denton Old Church. But the rapid increase of the population of Hyde (owing to the spread of the cotton industry), and the long hours that the people had to work, meant that a town church was needed.
