MANOR.

Wrockwardine Wood originally formed part of Wrockwardine manor (fn. 60) but the lord of the manor's mineral rights in the township were gradually separated from the other manorial rights. Sir George Saville began the process in 1660 by conveying his mining rights five years before he sold his third interest in the rest of the manor. Most of the rights formerly Saville's were owned by the Charltons of Apley from 1673. In 1813 and 1822 respectively Lord Berwick and the earl of Shrewsbury retained the mining rights when they sold their third shares of Wrockwardine manor. In 1822 Berwick sold his mines in Wrockwardine Wood to Viscount Granville (cr. Earl Granville 1833); he evidently still owned them in 1839 (fn. 61) but by 1851 they were said to be the duke of Sutherland's property. (fn. 62) The dukes of Sutherland and the earls of Shrewsbury were said to own the manorial rights in the township in the early 20th century, the collieries being principally the dukes' property. (fn. 63)
