NEWTON-IN-MAKERFIELD, a market-town and '''parish''' [as of 1682], in the union of Warrington, hundred of West Derby, S. division of Lancashire, 4 miles north of Warrington. Newton was formerly a chapelry in the parish of Winwick, but was erected into a distinct parish, by act of parliament, in 1844. The parish church, situated at Wargrave, and dedicated to Emmanuel, was built in 1844. The old chapel, which was dedicated to St. Peter, was built in 1682. After the creation of the parish of Newton, it was made a district church.<ref>Lewis, Samuel A., ''[[A Topographical Dictionary of England]]'' (1848), pp. 409-413. Adapted.
