Some history of the Fox Hunt Inn at Romsley in the county of Worcestershire.
More information on the Fox Hunt Inn at Romsley to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Fox Hunt Inn 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 Fox Hunt Inn. There is information on Romsley and Worcestershire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"At the Halesowen Police Court, on Tuesday, Alfred Bubb, labourer, Chapman's Hill, Bromsgrove, was charged with unlawfully
wounding Henry Hill, farmer, Romsley. On Monday night prosecutor was in the Fox Hunt Inn, Romsley, when someone called him outside, and upon going there he
saw the prisoner, who asked witness if he knew anything about his wife. Witness replied that he had not seen her, when the prisoner became violent, but afterwards
cooled down and asked prosecutor to shake hands. As soon as witness laid hold of prisoner's hand the latter struck him on the temple with some weapon which
stunned him, and witness lay in the road for about five minutes. The prosecutor's wounds were of a serious character, and could not have been caused by a
man's fist. The Bench reduced the charge to one of common assault, but characterised it as a savage one. Prisoner was ordered to pay £2, including the
expenses, or in default 21 days' imprisonment."
