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

Police Constable Adams said he saw defendant at Townsend, Kingswinford, drunk and making use of bad language. Henry Edward Worrell said that on the date mentioned he
and defendant had a few words at Kingswinford and had a fight in which he was the victor. Witness then went to the reading room, and defendant, after he had been there
some little time, came in with an open knife and made a stab at him, cutting his coat. Defendant made two other attempts to stab him. Defendant said he had nothing to
say upon it. The Stipendary said as far as the fight was concerned, complainant was as bad as defendant, but the use of the knife must be stopped. Defendant would be
committed for 21 days hard labour for the case of assault, and there would be no adjudication in the drunkenness."
