Archival history It was not until 1830, however, that the Christ Church registers were transferred there. From that date until the latter part of the nineteenth century two series of registers were kept, one at each of the two churches. The registers listed below are those which were kept at St. Michael's church. They were returned to the custody of the Vicar of Christ Church in the 1960s, and were deposited by him in January 1972.

Administrative history:
Christ Church was built in 1775 at the expense of Charles Roe, a wealthy manufacturer of Macclesfield, and was consecrated in 1779. In 1778 an Act of Parliament 19 Geo.III c.7 was passed for making the church a perpetual cure and benefice, and for endowing it and vesting the right of nomination and presentation in Charles Roe, his heirs and assigns. A district was assigned to the church in 1888.
The Act of 1778 contained provisions for registering christenings and burials at the 'old Chapel', i.e. Macclesfield St. Michael
