Interesting find, i like the reference to a "birket head". Would this perhaps be a hint that birkenhead was actually named because of the birket and not the birch tree theory?

From Wikipedia:

"The name Birkenhead is possibly from the Old English bircen meaning birch tree, of which many once grew on the headland which jutted into the river at Woodside, however some believe the name to have grown from the River Birket which empties into the docklands."

Does anyone know how to print those 2 pages relating to Rock Ferry & New Ferry ?
I can,t seem to do it on my computer ( Apple Mac) May be just my limited skills.
Would love to trace the landmarks that are described - white house, potteries etc.
Many thanks.
