Some history of Bobbington
More information on Bobbington to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Bobbington 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 Bobbington. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"On Friday last Mr. Doolittle, a respectable farmer residing at Bobbington, with Mrs. Doolittle and his mother, were coming down Beauty
Bank in a spring cart, when a broomstick, thrown by a boy named Oliver at a dog, struck the horse, which suddenly plunged, and the cart came with great violence against
the toll-gate, by which the shafts were broken and the whole contents of the cart thrown upon the ground. The elder lady received but comparatively slight injuries;
Mr. Doolittle and his wife were less fortunate, and were taken up insensible and conveyed to the New Inn, where every attention was paid to them, and Mr. Betts, surgeon,
was immediately sent for. Mr. Dooliltle and his mother were sufficiently recovered to be removed home on Saturday, but Mrs. Doolittle has received internal injuries of a
nature so serious that small hope is entertained of her recovery."
