Heswall-cum-Oldfield was a township in Heswall ancient parish, in the Wirral hundred, which became a civil parish in 1866. It included the town of Heswall and the hamlets of Dawstone and Oldfield (re-directed here).

It was part of the Wirral Rural District from 1894 until 1933. In 1933 Wirral Rural District was abolished and Heswall-cum-Oldfield became part of the new Wirral Urban District.

In the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974 the entire Wirral Peninsula, with the exception of the municipal borough of Ellesmere Port and urban district of Neston at the southern end, became the Metropolitan Borough of the Wirral in the new administrative county of Merseyside.

The population was 168 in 1801, 513 in 1851, 2167 in 1901, and 6773 in 1951.
