Some history of Bull Street
More information on Bull Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Bull Street from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Bull Street. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"Sarah Kimbley , hawker, Adam Street, and William Kimbley , nail-maker, Adam Street, were charged with being
drunk and offering for sale a spade ace guinea, supposed to have been stolen. On Friday afternoon the attention of Police Constable Salmons was called to the female
prisoner, who was offering the guinea in question for sale at the shop of Mr. Horton, Bull Street. She was drunk at the time. Mr. Horton refused to buy the guinea,
and the prisoner then went to Mr. Mole's, New Street, and was endeavouring to sell the coin, when the officer went in and took her into custody on suspicion of
stealing it. The male prisoner afterwards went to the lock-up to see what had become of his daughter, and as both of them refused to say how they became possessed
of the guinea they were both locked up. The guinea bore the superscription of George III., 1798. As nothing was known of the prisoners they were discharged; but
the officer was ordered to keep the coin for few days in order to see if an owner could be found for it."
