Hanford  Staffordshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Hanford like this:

HANFORD, a township and a chapelry in Trentham parish, Stafford. The township lies near the Grand Trunk canal and the Northwestern railway, 2½ miles S of Stoke-on-Trent; and has a post office under Stokeon-Trent. Real property, £1, 963. Pop., 832. Houses, 187. The property is divided among a few. ...

Hanford Hall belongs to the Duke of Sutherland.—The chapelry was constituted in 1831; and is rather larger than the township. Pop., 857. Houses, 191. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Lichfield. Value, £140. Patron, the Duke of Sutherland. The church was built in 1827, and enlarged and improved in 1862.
