About Me

My grandmother was from Rowley Regis.  Her mother, Lizzie Tromans was married to Jessie Howard, a Grocer. They lived at 47 Rowley Village.  Lizzie's mother, Sarah Bridgwater was the second wife of Henry Tromans of the Kings Arms pub (and later married his son, Lizzie's father).

Hi Claire, I think it was probably the one that used to be in Bell End. I am sure my nan used to take me in there when I was a young girl. Nice to hear from you.

If your interested in learning about Rowley and the area look at the website called The Black Country Bugle. You will find it very interesting.

Hi Claire. Was you grandmothers shop actually in Rowley Village. I remember a grocers shop in Rowley not far from Siviters Lane School also a grocers shop in Bell End as well. I remember the Kings Arms Pub, used to fetch my dad out of there many a time, drunk as usual. He used to work at Stokes & Downings a haulage company across the road from the Kings Arms. It was only a very small pub. keep in touch.
