"Enville is a neat and pleasant village on the road from Bridgnorth to Stourbridge, ten miles SSE of Wolverhampton and five and a quarter miles W by N of Stourbridge. Its parish has many scattered houses, 814 inhabitants and 4930 acres of land, forming the manors of Enville and Lutley. The Earl of Stamford is lord of the manor, and owner of most of the soil, and the rest belongs to the Rector, JA Grove, Esq, Mr T Penzer, Mr J Bissell, and a few smaller owners.
Lutley is supposed to have formed part of Kinfare forest, as no mention of it is made in Domesday Book.
Enville Hall, the beautiful sylvan seat of the Earl of Stamford, has belonged to his Lordship's family for more than 270 years, being originally a small brick house, erected by Thomas Grey, who died in 1578.
Enville is famous for a variety of black cherries, which possess a peculiar vinous flavour, and the wakes held there on the first three Sundays in August are called the 'cherry wakes', and are numerously attended by parties who come to partake of this delicious fruit"
