Everton is a district of Metropolitan Borough of Liverpool, in Merseyside, England and a Liverpool City Council ward. Until 1974 it was located in Lancashire. At the 2001 Census the population was recorded as 7,398.
Everton is an ancient settlement and like Liverpool, was one of the six unnamed berewicks of West Derby hundred. Until the late 18th century Everton was a small rural parish of Walton-on-the-Hill, but the rise in wealth of nearby Liverpool pushed wealthier merchants further afield to live. By the early 19th century however an increase in slums and demand for housing saw Everton began to be built up and in 1835, Everton became part of Liverpool.
Everton is now an inner city area located just north of Liverpool city centre, with Vauxhall to the west, Kirkdale to the north and Anfield to the north east.
