History

Pre-20th century

The early history of Bridgnorth is connected with Æthelfleda, lady of the Mercians, who raised a mound there in 912 as part of her offensive policy against the Danes of the five boroughs. After the Conquest William I granted the manor of Bridgnorth to Earl Roger of Shrewsbury, whose son Robert de Belesme transferred his castle and borough from Quatford to Bridgnorth, but on Robert's attainder in 1102 the town became a royal borough. Later, in 1546, the town was incorporated by James I.

It is probable that Henry I granted the burgesses certain privileges, for Henry II confirmed to them all the franchises and customs which they had in the time of Henry I. King John in 1215 granted them freedom from toll throughout England except the city of London, and in 1227 Henry III. conferred several new rights and liberties, among which were a gild merchant with a hanse. These early charters were confirmed by several succeeding kings, Henry VI granting in addition assize of bread and ale and other privileges. The burgesses returned two members to parliament in 1295, and continued to do so until 1867, when they were assigned only one member. The burgesses were additionally granted two fairs: a yearly fair on the feast of the Translation of St Leonard and three following days was granted in 1359, and in 1630, Charles I granted them licence to hold another fair on the Thursday before the first week in Lent and two following days.

Bridgnorth castle

The Castle, originally built in 1101 by Robert de Belleme (later Earl of Shrewsbury) was besieged four times in its history, last by the Roundheads in 1646 during the English Civil War when Bridgnorth was a Royalists stronghold. Parliamentary forces used an artificial hill (Panpudding Hill) across from the castle in order to bombard it and also tunnelled deep into the cliff underneath Bridgnorth castle in order to plant explosives and blow it up. The threat from this tunnelling (along with dwindling supplies) caused the Royalists to surrender Bridgnorth. Although the castle survived the siege, it was blown up by the Roundheads in 1647 to prevent its future use by the Royalists should they have retaken the town.

GENUKI: Bridgnorth, Shropshire - Extract from National Gazetteer, 1868 (1641 words)
Bridgnorth is the seat of a thriving trade, chiefly in connection with the navigation of the Severn, the building of vessels, and the export of corn and malt.
The government of the borough is vested, by an Act passed in 1835, in a mayor, 4 aldermen, and 12 councillors, the style of the corporation being the "bailiffs, aldermen, and burgesses of the borough of Bridgnorth".
Bridgnorth was the birthplace (1729) of Bishop Percy, to whom we are indebted for a collection of the "Reliques of Ancient English Poetry", and of Francis Moore, the originator of the medico-prophetic almanac which still passes under his name.
