General Notes

The first newspapers appeared in the 17th century when the Licensing Act [1662] was repealed.

From around 1750, newspapers spread to larger towns and published national news.

From about 1780, local news – with items such as sales notices, postal information, coach times and destinations – began to appear in the papers.

Halifax has had a selection of monthly, weekly and daily newspapers continuously since 1829
