Physical description: 6 Files
  • Rumworth, Lancashire

Administrative / biographical background:

Rumworth was the 'core' township in the ancient parish of Deane, being the township in which the parish church was situated. It was included in Bolton Poor Law Union in 1837, and became part of Bolton Rural Sanitary Authority in 1870. In 1872, Rumworth was divided into two parts; the eastern portion was added to the Borough of Bolton (Rumworth Ward), and the western part remained in Bolton Rural Sanitary Authority. In 1894, the western portion became a civil parish in Bolton Rural District, and its name was changed to 'Deane'. In 1898, the Rural District Council was abolished, and Deane became part of Bolton County Borough Deane-cum-Lostock Ward. This ward was rated differentially until 1923, and had its own local committee of the Borough Council
