    inscribed and dated on the reverse " E H - / May 31 - / 1867 / Hampstall Ridware"
    Hamstall Ridware is a village and civil parish] in the district of Lichfield in Staffordshire, England. It is in the Trent Valley, and lies close to the villages of Hill Ridware, Mavesyn Ridware and Pipe Ridware. It is eight miles north of the city of Lichfield, and four miles east of Rugeley. "Hamstall Ridware is a small village lying north of Mavesyn and Pipe Ridwares, in the vale of the Blythe rivulet, eight miles N of Lichfield and four miles E by N of Rugeley. Its parish contains 391 inhabitants, and 2959 acres of land, of which 435 acres is an allotment made at the enclosure of Needwood Forest, in which is included Hoarcross Park and The Rough, belonging to HCM Ingram, Esq, and distant nearly three miles N of the village. In the parish are also the hamlets of Netherton and Sandborough, within one mile of the village, and a number of scattered houses. Lord Leigh is owner of most of the land, and lord of the manor, which, before the Norman conquest, was held under the Earl of Mercia, and in the reign of Henry I by William de Ridware. In the beginning of the 17th century, it passed to the Leigh family, of Stoneleigh Abbey, Warwickshire. The ancient manor house, now occupied by a farmer, is an extensive edifice of brick and stone, formerly fitted up in a style of great magnificance. Near it stands a tower gateway and a watch tower. The latter is 50 feet high, and open at the top, which commands a fine prospect of the surrounding country. " "The Parish Church, near the manor house, is a small ancient structure dedicated to St Michael, and having in its windows some painted glass. It has several monuments, one of which is to the memory of the Rev Thomas Allastree, MA, who was a minister of the Church of England for 54 years, composed 500 sermons and preached 5000 times. The rectory is in the patronage of Lord Leigh, and incumbency of the Hon & Rev HP Cholmondeley, MA." Ref: X6B6W3PG
