Ettingsall

ETTINGSALL, an ecclesiastical district, partly in the parish of Sedgley, union of Dudley, and partly in the parish and union of Wolverhampton, N. division of the hundred of Seisdon, S. division of the county of Stafford, 1 mile (W. S. W.) from Bilston; containing 4889 inhabitants. This place was anciently a park; but its appearance has long been altered, from the working of extensive coal and iron mines, and quarries of limestone, all which produce abundantly. The village is scattered. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Bishop of Lichfield; net income, £150, with a parsonage-house. The church is at Catchem's Corner, in the midst of a mining population; it is dedicated to the Trinity, is a neat structure with a tower, of framed timber and brick, and cost £2000: the sittings, with the exception of four pews, are free. The Wesleyans have two places of worship; and there are a national, and an infant school.
