There has been a discussion before about this which I can't find.
The Chester Road used to go through the middle of Eastham village and it was in more recent times that the New Chester Road cut the corner and bypassed the village but this wasn't part of Ferry Road.
I am fairly sure that Ferry Road hasn't changed name in at least 180 years, if ever.
