Tettenhall has a long and interesting
history. It began as a rural village, and slowly evolved
into an up-market urban area, housing some of the many
successful businessmen, and traders from Wolverhampton and
the Black Country.
This article includes extracts from
William White’s “History, Gazetteer, and Directory of
Staffordshire” published in 1851, and also images of the
area, taken from some of the older Tettenhall postcards.
The directory lists the more prominent
householders, and the local business people who lived in the
locality in 1851.
