High Sheriff of Staffordshire

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the Sheriffs and High Sheriffs of Staffordshire.

The Sheriff is the oldest secular office under the Crown. The Sheriff was the principal law enforcement officer in the county but over the centuries most of the responsibilities associated with the post have been transferred elsewhere or are now defunct, so that its functions are now largely ceremonial. From 1204 to 1344 the High Sheriff of Staffordshire also served as Sheriff of Shropshire.

Under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972, on 1 April 1974 the office previously known as Sheriff was retitled High Sheriff.[1] The High Sheriff changes every March.
