Some history of the Talbot Hotel
More information on the Talbot Hotel at Cradley to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Talbot Hotel 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 Talbot Hotel. There is information on Cradley and Worcestershire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"A meeting of the members of the Stourbridge Licensed Victuallers society was held at the Talbot Hotel, Cradley, under the presidency of
Mr. J. Cadwallader. There was a numerous assemblage of members. The case of the justices of Kendall vs. Robinson, which was an appeal from the Quarter Sessions
of Westmoreland contested in the Court of Appeal in the Queen's Bench Division on the 18th, 19th, and 20th of April, and which decides that the justices had an
absolute discretion in granting or refusing the renewal of a license, so long as the justices did not act "corruptly, arbitrarily, or unfairly," was discussed,
and it was decided to assist the trade in their appeal to the House of Lords from such decision. Mr. Chappell, the hon. secretary of the Licensed Victuallers' Town
Hall Fund, presented his balance sheet and report, showing that £58 13s. had been voluntarily subscribed by the members of the society, and had been paid to the
credit of such fund, and read Mr. H. Watson Smith's gracious acknowledgment of the spontaneous and generoue support of the society. Mr. S. Leonard, of the Maypole,
Cradley, and Mr. Oliver, of the Talbot, Cradley, each expressed their approval of the course taken, and wished to augment the fund by a subscription of £1 each,
making the total £60 13s. A resolution was proposed, seconded, and carried with acclamation, that the best thanks of the society be given to Mr. Thomas Parkes, of
Stourbridge, for his services as hon. chairman, and Mr. J. E. Chappell as hon. sec., to the Committee of the Town Hall Fund."
