Stoolball Played in Sherston, England
|Immediacy of Report||Contemporary|
|Age of Players|
"Back in 2014 I contacted Wiltshire County Council as I found a reference on their website to stoolball being played in a village called Sherston in 1630. In their reply it's obvious it's 'stoball' not stoolball and they give the quote that I think you already have recorded. However, it's still an interesting reminder in terms of the ball."
Per-e Email from Anita Broad, Vice Chair, Stoolball England, January 23, 2018.
We are uncertain whether the game was a running game or a field-hockey=-type game also called "stoball."
Sherston, England is in the southwest of England, near the Cotswolds and about 20 miles NE of Bristol England.Edit with form to add a comment
