Dunstall

DUNSTALL, a township, in the parish of Tatenhill, union of Burton-upon-Trent, N. division of the hundred of Offlow and of the county of Stafford, 4½ miles (W. S. W.) from Burton; containing 180 inhabitants. This place lies on the eastern verge of Needwood Forest, and the manor was anciently a member of the honour of Tutbury. The township comprises 1716a. 2r. 24p., in about equal portions of arable and pasture: the land is elevated; the soil, though it varies, is generally good, and the scenery is pleasing. The river Trent skirts the township; and the Lichfield and Burton road, the Grand Trunk canal, and Birmingham and Derby railway, pass through it. Dunstall Lodge, enlarged and improved by the present proprietor, Charles Arkwright, Esq., is surrounded with 1200 acres of land. A large portion of Highlands Park, crown property, is in the township. The tithes have been commuted for £314.
