Staffordshire Mercury


Staffordshire Mercury

The "Staffordshire Mercury" was a weekly regional newspaper published in Staffordshire, England.

The publication was founded in 1824 by Thomas Allbut, with the Rev. Leonard Abington as its first editor. It was later renamed "The Potteries Mercury" at some point. [ [http://www.thepotteries.org/people/allbut_t.htm Allbut Family] ]

The paper became the "North Staffordshire Mercury" in March 1834 but returned to being named the "Staffordshire Mercury" in April 1845. The paper probably folded in May 1848. [ [http://www.the-staffordshire-encyclopaedia.co.uk/view.php?id=257 The Staffordshire Encyclopedia: Newspapers M - Z] ]

The "Staffordshire Mercury"'s notable journalists include Edmund Rogers (1840s)
