East Cheshire (UK Parliament constituency)
|Former County constituency

East Cheshire was parliamentary constituency which returned two Member of Parliament (MP)s to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Elections were held using the bloc vote system.
It was created upon the abolition of North Cheshire and South Cheshire in 1868 and the redivision of Cheshire into East Cheshire, West Cheshire, Mid Cheshire and Stalybridge. In 1885, the first three of these were abolished and re-divided into eight constituencies: Altrincham, Crewe, Eddisbury, Hyde, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Northwich and Wirral.
