to the local history Web site for

Warwickshire, England,

This site has been replaced with an enhanced and updated version. Please go to :


In these pages we will try and provide an introduction to the history of the town and where to find more information. The school and it's game have produced a high international profile for Rugby but we will concentrate on the story of the town. The 20th century developments in electrical engineering and other industries would have made the name known around the world without the William Webb Ellis effect.

Rugby School has its own web site .
For the development of the sport the English Rugby Football Union has some details, and the International Rugby Football Board has something on international developments.

If you are looking at your family tree then Rugby Family History Group will be of interest. If you are trying to follow up some detail of a relations social activities or careers then we may be able to help.

If you have any comments or information please contact us by e-mail at :-


We cannot offer a research service - but if your question is simple, or very interesting - we may be able to help !
