Northen Etchells covered the rural area that includes much of modern-day Wythenshawe. As late as 1872, Northen Etchells was a township of moderately-sized farms and clusters of labourers' cottages around Hey Head, Moss Nook, Poundswick, Sharston, Crossacres and Brownlow Green.
Northen Etchells existed as a township from the Middle Ages until 1894.
Northen Etchells and Stockport Etchells were collectively called Etchells and often administered together from the 16th to 18th centuries.
Northen Etchells ceased to exist as an administrative body in 1894. Cheshire County Council was created (along with 61 others) in 1888. In 1894 Rural District Councils and Parish Councils replaced the old townships. Northen Etchells became part of Bucklow Rural District Council, electing one councillor to the council.
