Freeford

FREEFORD, a hamlet, in the parish of St. Michael, Lichfield, union of Lichfield, N. division of the hundred of Offlow and of the county of Stafford, 2ΒΌ miles (S. E.) from Lichfield; containing 77 inhabitants. The manor was held by a family of its own name, in the reign of James I., and afterwards passed to the family of Dyott, who suffered much in the parliamentary war for their attachment to Charles I. The hamlet comprises 500 acres of rich and well-wooded land, lying on the road from Lichfield to Tamworth. Freeford Hall stands in a retired situation, and, with the demesne around it, is extra-parochial.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
