The 1891 census shows my grandmother as living in "Oswestry Town & Liberties". I`ve come across the Liberties term only in relation to medieval London where it seems to have been a part of town where the lower and criminal classes lived with some protection from the law. In general, what would the Liberties of a town mean in late Victorian times? Did many or most towns have Liberties?

I only know that since then planners and developers in many towns have taken liberties (sorry).
