    Notes 
    • Irish immigrants:
      During the early part of the nineteenth century the population of Ashton rose considerably to meet the demand of the booming cotton industry. One of the ways in which the shortage of workers was addressed was to encourage Irish immigrants to come to the town.

      Before the 1820s there had been very few Catholics in the town, with most of the church-going population being Church of England, Methodist or Congregationalist. By 1847, after the Irish Potato Famine had driven even more Irish people to seek work in England, ten percent of Ashton's population was Catholic.
