=== Chapel History ===
St John's Byrom Street Manchester was created a '''chapel of ease''' by 1769 from, and lying within the boundaries of [[Manchester Our Lady, St George and St Denys, Lancashire]] Ancient Parish; located on Deansgate. The church was built by Edward Byrom following an Act of Parliament in 1768. St John's parish was united with [[Manchester St Matthew, Campfield, Lancashire]] in 1928 when St Mathews became the parish church, but the St John's parsonage served as the home for the clergy. St John's church was demolished in 1931. This new parish was united with [[Manchester St Ann, Lancashire]] in 1943. The marriages registers, commencing in 1813, continue through the remaining portion of the Lord Hardwick Act era--one of the few churches in the Greater Manchester area, allowed to marry couples within its walls during this period.<ref>Lewis, Samuel A.
