Some history of Brierley Hill

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

"Mr. Joseph Francis Woodcock was yesterday summoned before J. Leigh, Esq. and the Rev. F. J. Clarke, for the non-payment of £1. 3s. 9d., as wages due to a workman named James Holding. Mr Woodcock told the Magistrates that he ought not to have been summoned as defendant, because he was merely the agent of Mr. Stephen Hipkins, for whom the defendant had been employed. He also said the work charged for had not been done. The defendant informed the Bench that on the 14th of November he and others received fourteen days notice to leave, and that during that time he was only allowed to make six days and a quarter, the manager not permitting him to go on for a longer time. The claim was therefore for work not in reality performed. There were two other similar cases, the complainants being George Terry and Benjamin Hammond, one of whom said there was work to be done the whole time. Mr. Leigh said the complainants were undoubtedly entitled to their wages for the whole time. The law of the case was clear, that the men could not leave without giving fourteen days' notice, and that the master could not discharge them without giving them notice for a similar period. Unfortunately, the Magistrates had no power to make an order for work not actually done, and the complainants must summon their master in the County Court. He, however, ordered the expense of the summons to be returned to them."
