Some history of Kenilworth

More information on Kenilworth to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Kenilworth 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 detailed information on Kenilworth. I have placed a few old newspaper articles, along with a few photographs.

"At the Warwick County Petty Sessions, on Saturday, before Messrs. J. Staunton, E. Wheler, F. Granville, R. Greaves, and Sir Trevor Wheler, Bart., William Baker, of Kenilworth, was charged with being drunk and riotous on the 13th inst. It appeared that he had a quarrel with his wife in the street and struck her, being at the time in a drunken state. A crowd collected, and when Police Constable Edkins interfered he was very abusive, and challenged him to fight. The Bench discharged him on promising to pay 6s. in a week, as he had been punished before the Leamington Bench for the assault upon his wife."

"On Saturday, at the Warwick County Petty Sessions, before Sir Trevor Wheler, and full bench, William Grainge, labourer, Kenilworth, was charged with being drunk and riotous, in that village, on the 21st inst. Defendant pleaded guilty, and from the statement of Police Constable Carter, it appeared that he was stripped, and challenging another man to fight in the High Street. He, however, went home quietly with a little persuasion, and Inspector Galloway, who was present, said that he had previously borne an excellent character, being well-conducted and an industrious young man. He was discharged with a caution, on payment of expenses 6s. 6d."

"Enoch Lucas, farmer, of Kenilworth, was charged in custody with having been drunk and disorderly at Kenilworth on the previous day, September 28th. Defendant pleaded guilty. P.C. Baines proved the case. He said that on the previous evening he found defendant in New Street at Kenilworth drunk. Defendant had neither jacket nor hat on, and was trying to get another man to come out of his house in order to have a fight. Owing to defendant's conduct, witness was obliged to take him into custody. Two civilian witnesses were present in court, but as the defendant had pleaded guilty, they were not called. Superintendent Ravenhall said the defendant had been convicted on four previous occasions at that court and once at Coventry. Defendant was fined one guinea or a month's imprisonment. He was allowed three days in which to pay. After the hearing our representative was informed that the defendant's Christian name was William, but he was charged in the name of Enoch Lucas."
