Aintree

AINTREE, a township, in the parish of Sefton, union and hundred of West Derby, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 6 miles (N. N. E.) from Liverpool; containing, in 1846, about 430 inhabitants. William of Aintree, in the reign of Henry III., left a daughter and heiress, Alice, who married into the Maghull family; and an heiress of the latter, Joanna, married into the family of Molyneux, who thus became proprietors of this place. The township lies on the road from Liverpool to Ormskirk, and the Liverpool race-course is within its limits. The tithes have been commuted for £135.
