Today, Maghull is a town lying within the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton, in Merseyside, England. It is north of the city of Liverpool and south of Ormskirk in West Lancashire.

The name Maghull may have been derived from the Celtic word 'magos', the old Irish 'Magh' and the Old English 'halh', meaning 'flat land in a bend of the river'. Another theorized origin is Anglo-Saxon mægðehalh = "nook of land where mayweed grows".

MAGHULL, a chapelry, in the parish of Halsall,union of Ormskirk, hundred of West Derby, S. division of Lancashire, 8 miles (N. by E.) from Liverpool,on the road to Ormskirk. [1]
