Adelphi House was built in 1808 as a home by Samuel Bury, who lived there for 28 years before it was sold on. In 1853, the nuns of the Order of the Faithful Companions of Jesus moved in and converted the building to a convent and school.  During its life as a Catholic school, as the demand for accommodation increased, a third storey was added.  Today, the building forms part of the University of Salford.
