The Wirral council website used to show a map for townships within the council area. I don't think the map has survived the website update. Here it is -

I cannot give the date that the townships in the previously posted map were established.
In the 1844 tithe, OS c1875 and OS c1910 maps the areas now shown as New Ferry and Port Sunlight were within Lower Bebington township.

Susan is quite correct - the snobs who run Aldi decided that "Bebington" was a more middle-class location than "New Ferry", so - although their store is built in NEW FERRY - they thought they were close enough to "the border" to get away with calling it "Aldi Bebington" to attract a higher class of clientele. They'd better watch out, because us New Ferry ruffians might decide to set up border control posts under the railway bridges and charge a toll for those upper-crustie Bebingtonians coming onto our patch to buy their groceries cheaper than Asda (which itself is located in that remote corner of East Wirral known as Bromborough) laugh
