Study Description 

White’s Directory of 1834 describes Can Lane as ‘a long street of houses 3/4 mile E.N.E of Sedgley’. It was, in effect, a hamlet of Ettingshall, the northern division of the large parish of Sedgley. Eventually it was renamed Hurst Road. This study concentrates on the time leading up to the 1841 census, using a range of material, to try and paint a picture of this community in the early nineteenth century and place it within its wider historical and geographical context.


Up to and including 1841.
