Welcome to Ancient Manor of Sedgley Website
This site has been designed to give Genealogists and local Historians an insight into the Staffordshire village of Sedgley,
its parish and the surrounding hamlets and to the life and times of the people who lived there.
The parish consists of nine hamlets:
Sedgley, Coseley, Upper & Lower Gornal, Gospel End, Woodsetton, Cotwall End, Ettingshall and Brierley (now called Bradley)
In pre-Norman times the manor of Sedgley (Google Map Location) formed part of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia in the Hundred of Seisdon,
it later became part of the County of Staffordshire, in the area known as the Black Country, today is on the western edge of the West Midlands conurbation.
