Some history of Claverley

More information on Claverley to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Claverley 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 Claverley. There is information on Shropshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place. In the meantime, I have posted a couple of photographs.

"On Friday last, a little boy, three years of age, son of John Williams, shepherd to Mr. Wilson, of Beobridge, near Claverley, was along with his father, who was cutting turnips. Somehow or other the poor little fellow put his hand to the knife, unperceived by his father, and his thumb was cut off. He was taken to Mr. Haslehurst, of Claverley, as quickly as possible, and his injured hand was dressed. He is going on favourably."

"On Friday evening last, William Nock, grandson of John Nock, of the Ill-end, was returning home from taking a load of coals to Hopstone, and was about get into the cart to ride home, when the horse started, and the wheel went over his body. He rose up to follow the horse and cart, which had been stopped by two women, who got him into the cart and went with him, but before they had gone many yards the boy breathed his last. He was only 16 years of age."
