Some history of Willenhall

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

"At Willenhall, Staffordshire, yesterday, an amazing story was told of alleged attempted murder of a lover by drowning. The accused is a widower named Richard Allchin. It was stated that when walking home from Walsall on Monday with a young woman named Harriett Louisa Pitt, aged 20, a tailoress, whom he was to have married next week, he drew her down on the towing path and attempted to draw a large-bladed knife across her throat. The girl frustrated this attempt. Allchin then remarked that she did not love him, that his life was not worth living, and that they were about to die together. It is alleged that he then tied handkerchiefs around their necks and connected them. The girl immediately found herself in the water. Allchin eventually pulled her out and severed the handkerchiefs, he and the girl walking home. Accused was remanded."
