Parish History

Walton on the Hill St Mary is an Ancient Parish in the county of Lancashire. Bootle Bootle St Mary, Lancashire  and Everton  are chapelries of Walton on the Hill St Mary.

Other places in the parish include: Ainsdale, Edge Hill, Fazakerley, Walton on the Hill Stanley, Stanley, Walton on the Hill Edge Hill, and Raven Meols.

The town name 'Walton' may have been derived from the same origins as the country name 'Wales'. The Saxons called the earlier inhabitants of Briton (the Celtic Britons) the 'Walas' or 'Wealas'. Thus, Walton may have once been called 'Walas' town. Whatever the origins of the name, Walton is one of the oldest areas of settlement in Merseyside.

Walton, originally known as Walton-on-the-Hill, is an area of Liverpool, in Merseyside, England, situated to the north of Anfield and the east of Bootle and Orrell Park.

St Mary's church and graveyard occupy a site which may have had a Saxon church on it.

WALTON-ON-THE-HILL St Mary, a parish, in the union and hundred of West Derby, S. division of Lancashire, 3 miles north by east of Liverpool. The parish consists of the district chapelry of West Derby; the chapelries of Everton, Formby, and Kirkby; and the townships of Bootle with Linacre, Fazakerley, Kirkdale, Simonswood, and Walton. The church, which, up to 1698, was the mother church of Liverpool, was mostly rebuilt in 1829 and has a churchyard, enlarged in 1847.

A district chapel also lay within its boundary called Walton Breck, was formed 1847 and dedicated to the Holy Trinity.[1]
