Brewood: Some Notes on the History of Brewood in Staffordshire, with an Account of the Escape of Charles II After the Battle of Worcester on 3rd September 1651
D. Horovitz ...in association with The Self Publishing Association, 1992 - Brewood (England) - 416 pages
A history of Brewood, an ancient parish adjoining the Stafforshire-Shropshire border. With evidence of Celtic links, and in an area of considerable importance in the Roman period, Brewood later became part of a vast royal forest to which it gave its name, and enjoyed royal patronage and borough status in the Middle Ages. Decimated by the Black death, it declined into relative obscurity, interrupted in 1575 by a visit of Queen Elizabeth I - who repaid her host with imprisonment - and hostilities which divided the local families during the Civil War.
