Russell Hall, Dudley...help needed please!!!
« on: Wednesday 16 July 08 12:55 BST (UK) »
Has anyone heard of Russell Hall, somewhere near to Dudley please? Our ancestors, the Sutton Dudley family, owned this house during the 1600s.Thomas Sutton Dudley was born there in 1653, as was his father, Jeffrey. I haven't been able to find out much at all about the hall. Has anyone got any ideas as to where I could try next please? I live a long way from the area, and have health problems, so I am limited to the internet for my research.
Many thanks.

There is an area of Dudley called Russell's Hall.  In fact  Dudley hospital is called Russell's Hall.

You could try Dudley archives for information http://www.dudley.gov.uk/leisure-and-culture/local-history--heritage/archive-and-local-history

Coming from just outside Dudley myself and working for the local council up until last year I can tell you the Russells Hall Estate and Russells Hall Hospital are built on what was once Russells Hall a stately home and grounds

Hi everyone,
thank you so much for all of the replies and information given. I am now sure that Russell Hall was once where the new estate and hospital are now. I have been told that there is a picture of the hall in a book about Sedgley, I am still trying to track a copy down. I would love to see an image of it. I wonder if it was derelict at the time of demolition.. I guess it must have been. The Sutton Dudleys are indeed a very interesting family to research, there is plenty to keep me going for a few years at least!
Thanks again for your interest and assistance.
Happy hunting everyone!
