More information on the Fighting Cocks at Romsley to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Fighting Cocks 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 Fighting Cocks. There is information on Romsley and Worcestershire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"Eli Burton was charged with being drunk on licensed premises in the occupation of Hannah Smith, on the 13th ult, and Hannah Smith, landlady of the Fighting Cocks Inn, Romsley, was charged with permitting drunkenness in her house on the 13th ult. Mr. W. Hayes, jun., defended. Police-Constable Knowles said that about 5 o'clock in the evening of the 13th ult., he visited the Fighting Cocks Inn, Romsley. He saw Burton in the house drunk and he had a glass of whisky before him. He called the attention of the landlady to the man. He again visited the house at 7 o'clock and Burton was still there. Mr. Hayes in defence, said the man appeared sober when he came to the house first and he was very quiet until another man began to tease him. The landlady's daughter asked him to go out several times when she found what a state he was in but he would not go. The Bench said they believed the landlady's daughter made every endeavour to get rid of Burton and dismissed the case. For being drunk Burton was fined 5s. and costs."
