Here are a few articles about Woolston’s history.
We know the Anglo-Saxons arrived here around 700 AD. The word ‘Ees’, as in Woolston Eyes, is Saxon for land near a looping watercourse.
The name Woolston first appears in 1180 in a charter. The name comes from two Old English elements – a personal name ‘Wulfes’ of ‘Wulfsiges’ followed by the word ‘tun’.
Around 1367 an account says that the Mersey had sturgeons, mullet, seals and eels, lobsters, shrimps, prawns and ‘the best and largest cockles in all England.
