Bromborough was a township in Bebington ancient parish, in the Wirral hundred, which became a civil parish in 1866. It was an urban district from 1894 until 1922. The civil parish was abolished in 1922 and incorporated into Bebington & Bromborough. The population was 277 in 1801, 412 in 1851, 1891 in 1901 and 2652 in 1921.

In 1922 Bromborough merged with its neigbouring urban districts of Lower Bebington and Higher Bebington to become the urban district of Bebington and Bromborough. This was replaced in 1933 by the Municipal Borough of Bebington which lasted until 1974.

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.
