      Pensnett Chase. The present Pensnett covers a small portion of what was a large common called Pensnett Chase in Kingswinford parish, but contiguous with Dudley Wood in Dudley. As such, it belonged to the lords of the manor, descending as part of the Dudley estate from medieval times. With Dudley Wood, it is probably the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Book, as Country: England.   In our American County Histories collection you will find History of Litchfield County, Connecticut, with Illustrations and Biographical Sketches of its Prominent Men and volume by J.

During the 18th century the population of Dudley grew enormously. By the following century the town became known as the ‘Capital of the Black Country’, and a centre for metalworking and mining. This area once had numerous ironworks.

        For months, Dudley was embroiled in a controversy over a proposed Islamic cemetery that kept the small, cash-strapped town in the state – and sometimes national – spotlight. The town and the Islamic Society of Greater Worcester were engaged in a year-long dispute over the proposed acre cemetery. The area’s rich coal seams and deposits of iron and limestone made it almost inevitable that it would become an important iron-producing centre. Small metalworking industries had begun in Birmingham as early as the 16th century, and by the 18th century the coalfield towns of Dudley, Walsall, and Wolverhampton had become important for ironworking.
