Historically, Wilmslow was one of the eight parishes of the Macclesfield Hundred of Cheshire; subdivided into the townships of Chorley, Bollinfee, Fulshaw and Pownall Fee. Under the informative Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834, the townships became civil parishes in their own right. However, in 1894, Wilmslow was recreated as a civil parish when Fulshaw and Pownall Fee were abolished. Upon this abolishment, Wilmslow gained Fulshaw and Pownall Fee; the other 1523 sacred were used to create the Styal civil parish. Wilmslow grew demographically during the Victorian era, becoming a popular location for wealthy North West merchants to move to once railway connection had been established. In 1974, Wilmslow officially became part of the Borough of Macclesfield, and in 2009, became part of the Cheshire East authority.
