    I just found some info on this.....

    West Derby was one of the eight hundreds of Lancashire, fifteen townships came under its durisdiction and its boundaries reached as far west as Moss St, Islington. Over the centuries it was in turn inhabited by the Danes, Anglo-Saxons, and until 13thC. stood in a forest 11 miles long/2 miles wide. It has had a Saxon fort, a Norman Fort and now a small walled garden marks the site. King John transferred the Wapentake court from West Derby, when he granted the Charter to L,pool in 1207. (the forerunner of the County Court today). Ecclesiastically West Derby was part of Walton Parish for many years, but became independent in 1848. The present parish church built 1853/4 (designed by Gilbert G Scott, replaced the ancient chapel of St Mary the Virgin.

    In the old days West Derby covered a lot more area than it does today.
    There is an old boundary marker at the top of Townsend lane which says, 'Township of West Derby' ... and yet Townsend lane is now classed as being in Anfield.
    ... bit confusing really ... if you turn left at the top of Townsend lane and into Lower Breck rd - that comes under the Tuebrook boundary
