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

"On Tuesday, a prostitute named Mary Ann James, alias "Comfort," apprehended on the preceding Saturday evening by Sergeant Merrefield,
was brought up charged with stealing £1.10s., the property of John Hopkins, a navvie. The parties met near the Swan Hotel, and prisoner inquired if prosecutor
"would do drain:" Hopkins replied in the affirmative, and they adjourned to the Swan and partook of sundry glasses of rum, prosecutor becoming almost insensibly
drunk; both however continued to walk as far the Church Alley, where James was seen with her hands in Hopkins's pocket. Subsequently she gave up 10s. 6d., stating
that to be all she had taken; prisoner, however, also admitted, when apprehended, that she had taken the money, but intended returning it. Committed for trial at the
next Worcester sessions. Prisoner was convicted, some six or eight months since, of stealing a quantity of goods from a young chilld belonging to the town, and sentenced
to three months' imprisonment."
