Attending a funeral in Moreton? Get to know the history of Moreton
If you’re attending a funeral in Moreton then it’s important to know that the people of Moreton have a very strong and proud history of their local town. The town’s name actually means settlement beside a marsh, derived from the Anglo-Saxon words of ‘tun’ (meaning settlement) and more (meaning beside a marsh). Moreton has been occupied since the Roman era, after Roman coins were found around the township, but there have also been other historic finds including a Neolithic polished axe along Upton Road as well as a sandstone head which is believed to be Iron Age. With Moreton being so close to the famous ports of Birkenhead and Liverpool, it naturally has links with their maritime history, in fact William Inman who owned the Liverpool, New York and Philadelphia Steamship Company (responsible for many of the emigrations from the Merseyside area to the United States) is buried in Moreton Parish Church.
More recently, the locals of Moreton will often tell tales of their long history of working in Burtons biscuit factory or Typhoo Tea factory which was located just next door, however Moreton was also famous for other industries, as it was home to Bristol-Myers Squibb pharmaceuticals. However it hasn’t been all work and no play for the Moreton locals, Moreton is also famous for its love of Golf, with many afternoons well spent in the golf course and country club in Moreton which is now known as the Moreton Hills Golf Centre. It was also here that the ladies’ golf club in Moreton was founded by none other than Lottie Dod, 5 time Wimbledon singles champion. After many rounds of golf, it wasn’t uncommon for the locals to drink in the former Morton Arms, widely chastised for its incorrect spelling of the town as well as The Coach and Horses Inn being some of the more notable public houses.
