Historic Liverpool includes histories of Liverpool’s townships. From the Oxford English Dictionary, via Wikpedia:
In England, a township (Latin – villa) is a local division or district of a large parish containing a village or small town usually having its own church. A township may (or may not) be co-terminous with a chapelry, manor, or other minor area of local administration.
Liverpool’s historic townships were part of either Walton-on-the-Hill, Childwall, or Huyton, as described in the Victoria County History of Lancashire. These in turn were part of the Hundred of West Derby, one of six hundreds in Lancashire, reaching all the way to the Ribble around North Meols.
