    • Note:
      West Bromwich Roman Catholicism
      'A Puritan survey of Staffordshire in 1604 reported 'many popish' in West Bromwich. It was stated in 1607 that the wife of Sir William Whorwood of Sandwell and her daughters were 'notable recusants' and that Sir William's association with recusants led to his 'neither caring for his credit nor conscience'. Thomas Brome Whorwood, who lived at Sandwell in the late 17th century, was married to a Roman Catholic, and their son Thomas was brought up in his mother's religion.' 8
