History[edit] Main article: History of Staffordshire

Historically, Staffordshire
Staffordshire
was divided into five hundreds: Cuttlestone, Offlow, Pirehill, Seisdon, and Totmonslow.

The historic boundaries of Staffordshire
Staffordshire
cover much of what is now the metropolitan county of West Midlands. An administrative county of Staffordshire
Staffordshire
was set up in 1889 under the Local Government Act 1888 covering the county except the county boroughs of Wolverhampton, Walsall, and West Bromwich
West Bromwich
in the south (the area known as the Black Country), and Hanley in the north. The Act also saw the towns of Tamworth (partly in Warwickshire) and Burton upon Trent
Burton upon Trent
(partly in Derbyshire) united entirely in Staffordshire. In 1553 Queen Mary made Lichfield
Lichfield
a county separate from the rest of Staffordshire. It remained so until 1888. Handsworth and Perry Barr
Perry Barr
became part of the county borough of Birmingham
Birmingham
in the early 20th century, and thus associated with Warwickshire. Burton, in the east of the county, became a county borough in 1901, and was followed by Smethwick, another town in the Black Country
Black Country
in 1907. In 1910 the six towns of the Staffordshire Potteries, including Hanley, became the single county borough of Stoke-on-Trent.

The Staffordshire
Staffordshire
Hoard, discovered in a field near Lichfield
Lichfield
in July 2009, is perhaps the most important collection of Anglo-Saxon
Anglo-Saxon
objects found in England

A significant boundary change occurred in 1926 when the east of Sedgley
Sedgley
was transferred to Worcestershire
Worcestershire
to allow the construction of the new Priory Estate
Priory Estate
on land purchased by Dudley
Dudley
County Borough council.[3] A major reorganisation in the Black Country
Black Country
in 1966, under the recommendation of the Local Government Commission for England
England
led to the creation of an area of contiguous county boroughs. The County Borough of Warley was formed by the merger of the county borough of Smethwick
Smethwick
and municipal borough of Rowley Regis
Rowley Regis
with the Worcestershire
Worcestershire
borough of Oldbury: the resulting county borough was associated with Worcestershire. Meanwhile, the county borough of Dudley, historically a detached part of Worcestershire, expanded and became associated with Staffordshire
Staffordshire
instead. This reorganisation led to the administrative county of Staffordshire
Staffordshire
having a thin protrusion passing between the county boroughs (to the east) and Shropshire, to the west, to form a short border with Worcestershire. Under the Local Government Act 1972, on 1 April 1974 the county boroughs of the Black Country
Black Country
and the Aldridge- Brownhills
Brownhills
Urban District of Staffordshire
Staffordshire
became, along with Birmingham, Solihull, and Coventry
Coventry
and other districts, a new metropolitan county of West Midlands. County boroughs were abolished, with Stoke becoming a non-metropolitan district in Staffordshire, and Burton forming an unparished area in the district of East Staffordshire. On 1 April 1997, under a recommendation of the Banham Commission, Stoke-on-Trent became a unitary authority independent of Staffordshire
Staffordshire
once more. In July 2009 the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon
Anglo-Saxon
gold ever found in Britain was discovered in a field near Lichfield. The artefacts, known as The Staffordshire Hoard
Staffordshire Hoard
have tentatively been dated to the 7th or 8th centuries, placing the origin of the items in the time of the Kingdom of Mercia. Economy[edit]

Staffordshire
currently has three professional football clubs – Stoke City and Port Vale, both from Stoke-on-Trent, and Burton Albion, who play in Burton upon Trent. Stoke City, one of the oldest professional football clubs in existence, were founded in 1863 and played at the Victoria Ground
Victoria Ground
for 119 years from 1878 until their relocation to the Britannia Stadium
Britannia Stadium
in 1997. They were among the 12 founder members of the Football League
Football League
in 1888.[9] By the late 1930s, they were established First Division members and boasted arguably the finest footballer in England
England
at the time in right-winger Stanley Matthews, who had two spells with the club between 1930 and his retirement in 1965 at the age of 50.[10] In 1972, the club finally won a major trophy when they lifted the Football League
Football League
Cup,[11] but after relegation from the First Division in 1985 they would not experience top flight football for 23 years.[12] After spending some two decades bouncing between the second and third tiers of the English league, they finally reclaimed their top flight status in 2008 by securing promotion to the FA Premier League – where they have remained ever since.[13] Stoke City reached their first FA Cup
FA Cup
final in 2011, but lost to Manchester City.[14] Port Vale, who like Stoke City play in Stoke-on-Trent, were formed in 1876 and became members of the Football League
Football League
in 1892. After more than 70 years at various stadiums around the city, the club moved to its present home, Vale Park, in 1950. In early 1936, they had eliminated First Division champions Sunderland from the FA Cup. Another FA Cup
FA Cup
success came in February 1988 when they eliminated seven-time winners Tottenham Hotspur from the competition. Promotion to the Second Division for the first time since the 1960s was secured in 1989, and Vale would spend nine of the next 11 years at this level. However, the club has been less successful since the turn of the 21st century, and suffered relegation to League Two – the fourth tier of the English league – in 2008. The club has seen an upturn in its fortunes as the club was promoted from league two in the 2012-13 season and currently holds a place in Football League
Football League
One.[15] West Bromwich
