History of Cannock
Cannock was listed in the Domesday Book back in 1086. It was known as Chnoc in 1130, Cnot in 1156, Canot the following year in 1157 and changed again to Canoc in 1198. Cannock is believed to be from the Old English word ‘cnocc’ which means ‘hillock’. It is then believed to have been modified by Norman pronunciation by the addition of a vowel to Canoc. The name may well refer to Shoal Hill, which lays north-west of the town.
A small rural community initially, Cannock’s mining increased dramatically during the mid-to-late 19th century. The area then continued to expand rapidly, with various industries sprouting in the area due to of its closeness to the Black Country and its coal reserves. The population of Cannock continued to grow steadily throughout the 20th century. The last colliery to shut its doors in the town was Mid Cannock in 1967. The last of the collieries to close in the Cannock Chase district was Littleton back in 1993.
The population total in 2011 was 86,121, resulting in it being second biggest in Staffordshire if you exclude Swadlincote in Derbyshire from the Burton upon Trent Built-up Area. There is a modest green belt, in particular between the Cannock Built-up Area and the bigger West Midlands Built-up Area down to the south.
There is a house called The Green, which dates as early as the 1730s and was once the home of Sir Robert Fisher – 4th Baronet, which later became the headquarters of Cannock Urban District Council back in 1927. It was later converted into offices in the 80s for Cannock Chase Technical College. It was refurbished for private use In 2016.
