Moreton is a town on the north coast of the Wirral Peninsula, Merseyside, England. In the 2001 Census, it had a population of 17,670 (8,370 males, 9,300 females). From 2004, the town was divided between the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral wards of Leasowe & Moreton East and Moreton West & Saughall Massie.HistoryPrior to the Norman conquest, the Lingham area of Moreton was a possible location for Dingesmere, mentioned with regard to the Battle of Brunanburh, in Egil's Saga. At the time of the Domesday Book, the area formed part of the large township of Eastham. In the twelfth century, it formed part of the estates of Hamo de Mascy. The name Moreton was first recorded in 1278, and derives from Anglo-Saxon words meaning a settlement (tun) beside a marsh (more). The village joined with neighbouring Lingham to form the parish of Moreton-cum-Lingham. The area is located between Great Meols to the west and Bidston and Wallasey to the south and east. Before the sea embankment was constructed, the area included 3000 acres of tidal lagoon, at between one and two metres below sea level, with most of the remainder little more than one metre above.
