Wolverhampton is an industrial town in Staffordshire, 13 miles northwest of Birmingham. Wolverhampton's Wednesday market day was granted by Henry II in 1258. Wolverhampton sent its first representative to Parliament in 1832. In 1848, it was incorporated as a municipality in 1848 and as a county borough in 1888. The boundary lines were extended in 1927 and again in 1933. The University of Wolverhampton has its campus here.
