Before the Second World War ended, Shard End ward was an entirely rural settlement having its only buildings like farmhouses, tithe cottages, and farm outbuildings. Of the several famous residents, an infamous occupant is Abraham Thornton, the Shard End’s farmland owner’s son.
This infamous resident murdered a girl, Ashford Mary, according to the presiding authority in the year 1817. The trial events of Abraham Thornton caused the removal of two old legal rights; the right for an accused to have a relative demanding another trial even after the acquisition and the accused’s standing right to defend themselves by duelling the relative.
In 1945, Shard End created a plan for a housing estate and by 1946, there was an issue for compulsory orders. Around the late 1940s did the construction for this estate start.
