Stroud is a market town in the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. Archaeological evidence demonstrates that the Stroud area has been occupied since Neolithic times. It played its part in the Industrial Revolution as it was a cloth manufacturing centre, famous in particular for the colour Stroud Scarlet used for military uniforms. Stroud was recorded as having ten houses in 1477, and it grew slowly until by 1650 it was estimated that some six hundred families lived there. It had a weekly market and an annual fair by the early 1600s, and John Throckmorton had the Market House built around 1590; this forms the basis of the Town Hall.
