Thingwall was a township in Woodchurch ancient parish, in the Wirral hundred, which became a civil parish in 1866.

Thingwall was part of the Wirral Rural District from 1894 until 1928 when the civil parish was abolished and the area became part of Birkenhead. The population was 52 in 1801, 96 in 1851, 156 in 1901, and 652 in 1931. At the 2001 Census, Thingwall had 3,140 inhabitants. The township covered 377 acres.

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.
