Pensby was a township in Woodchurch ancient parish, in the Wirral hundred, which became a civil parish in 1866. It included the hamlets of Arnol Hill and Lingdale.

It was part of the Wirral Rural District from 1894 until 1933. In 1933 Wirral Rural District was abolished and Pensby became part of the new Wirral Urban District.

The population was 22 in 1801, 41 in 1851, 48 in 1901, and 2996 in 1951.

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.
