- Additional Notes: On the night of 28 November 1848, Stanfield Hall was the scene of the murder of Isaac Jermy, and his son Isaac Jermy Jermy, but James Blomfield Rush. The resulting trial generated feverish public interest. Staffordshire potters reflected this interest by creating figures of key people and places in the murder story. This including James Blomfield Rish, his mistress Emily Sandford and even the hall itself!
