Some history on Wolverhampton in the County of Staffordshire
More information on Wolverhampton to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Wolverhampton 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 Wolverhampton. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"At the Police Court, on Saturday, before Messrs. H. Walker and J. Ford, an old woman, named Mary Blackford, was charged with being drunk
and disorderly in Queen's Square, on Friday night. She had been convicted nineteen times before of similar offences, and she was now fined 20s. and costs, in default
one month's imprisonment."
