For such a small place, Fazeley and the surrounding areas have a very rich history. These web pages include information that will help research into family backgrounds, and the two main documents used here, the 1919 Catalogue of Sale of the Drayton Manor (Peel) Estates and the will of Sir Robert Peel (1842) contain a lot of detail which is very revealing and well worth browsing. In addition, the memories of local people add greatly to the understanding of what it has been like to live in Fazeley in the past. We are grateful for all contributions (see acknowledgements above), and we welcome more.
