As the Archivist at the Walsall Local History Centre I do look after some nice little documents. The Walsall Local History Centre houses a perambulation for the beating of the bounds for the Liberty of Pelsall, which dates back to 1634. A perambulation effectively means the a tour (walk around) of the boundary of a township, manor or whatever it is a perambulation of. I suppose the hope is that some from the locale can actually still trace some of these features or have a good guess as to where they were… https://wyrleyblog.wordpress.com/walsall/the-boundaries-of-pelsall-1634/
