Formerly a township in the parish of Eastham in the Wirral Hundred,[1] Little Sutton became part of Ellesmere Port civil parish in 1950. The population was 166 in 1801, 432 in 1851 and 1,109 in 1901.[2]

Little Sutton is mostly residential and sits either side of the A41 road, linking Birkenhead and Chester. Little Sutton railway station is situated on the Wirral Line of the Merseyrail network. The 'Old Red Lion' public house, which was rebuilt in 1934 to replace a much older building, is located near the junction of Chester Road (A41) and Station Road (B5463).
