Staffordshire history

Staffordshire History photo

Historic boundaries of Staffordshire cover much of what is now the metropolitan county of West Midlands. Historically, Staffordshire was divided into five hundreds: Cuttlestone, Offlow, Pirehill, Seisdon, and Totmonslow. In 1553, Queen Mary made Lichfield a county corporate, meaning it was administered separately from the rest of the county. Staffordshire has a thin protrusion passing between the county boroughs and Shropshire, to the west, to form a short border with Worcestershire.
