More information on the New Talbot Inn at Smethwick to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the New Talbot Inn 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 the New Talbot Inn. There is information on Smethwick and Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"At the West Bromwich Petty Sessions, on Saturday, before R. Heaton and C. Ratcliff, Esq., three brothers, named Henry Sayce, Edward Sayce, Arthur Sayce, and Charles Humphreys were summoned for assaulting Charles Harvest, gardener, Smethwick. According to the evidence of several, the complainant was in the New Talbot Inn, Smethwick, on the 6th inst., when Henry Sayce, without the slightest provocation, struck him. Complainant did not retaliate, but left the inn and went home, when he found that the door had been broken open. A few minutes afterwards a number of bricks and stones were thrown at the door, the principal assailants being the defendants. Upon going out the house to remonstrate, complainant was struck with stones and knocked down. For the defence it was contended that after the assault at the public-house, the complainant went to the house of Henry Sayce and struck him a violent blow with a poker. The magistrates characterised the assault as disgraceful in the extreme, and fined the defendants as follows: - Henry Sayce 20s. and costs; Edward and Arthur Sayce 10s., and Charles Humphreys, 10s. and costs each. A cross-summons against Charles Harvest was dismissed."
