The Imperial Tobacco Company was created in 1901 through the amalgamation of thirteen British tobacco and cigarette companies: W.D. & H.O. Wills of Bristol (the leading manufacturer of tobacco-based products at that time), John Player & Sons of Nottingham and 11 other independent family businesses, which were being threatened by competition from the United States in the form of James Buchanan Duke and his American Tobacco Company. Imperial Tobacco History – Formation First W. D. & H. O. Wills of Bristol merged with Stephen Mitchell & Son of Glasgow. Subsequently other smaller companies including Lambert & Butler, William Clarke & Son, Franklyn Davey, Edwards Ringer, J&F Bell and F&J Smith joined in the amalgamation. The Company's first Chairman was William Henry Wills (William Wills, 1st Baron Winterstoke) of the Wills Company. The club plays most of its home games at the Trent Bridge Ground in West Bridgford, Nottingham, which is also a venue for Test matches (Test cricket). The club has played matches at numerous other venues which are listed in full on ''CricketArchive''. Cricket grounds in Nottinghamshire.

It would appear that the Scottish commanders had news of the Queen's whereabouts, for the rumour spread that one of the aims of the raid was to take her prisoner. As the Scots approached York she was hurriedly removed from the city, eventually taking refuge in Nottingham. With no troops in the area, William Melton, Archbishop of York (William Melton), set about organising a home guard, which of necessity included a great number of priests and other minor clerics. The two sides met up at Myton-on-Swale, with inevitable consequences. So many priests, friars and clerics were killed in the Battle of Myton that it became widely known as the 'Chapter of Myton.' It was hardly a passage of any great glory for Douglas but as a strategy the whole Yorkshire raid produced the result intended: there was such dissension among Edward's army that the attempt on Berwick was abandoned. It was to remain in Scottish hands for the next fifteen years. - ''' 4 ''' 197 21 India (India cricket team) Nottingham, England Trent Bridge 2002 - - ''' 17 ''' 124 69 India (India cricket team) Nottingham, England Trent Bridge 2007 - '''Leeds railway station''' (also known as '''Leeds City station''') http: www.networkrail.co.uk documents For%20Passengers dddp 4698_Station%20summary%20-%20Leeds%202007v2.pdf http: www.yell.com listings DoFindListings 4621962 Leeds-City-Station RAILWAY-EQUIPMENT http: www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk news Automatic-ticket-gates-at-Leeds.4349517.jp http: www.leedsliveitloveit.com Visitors Travel tabid 67 Default.aspx is the mainline railway station serving the city centre (Leeds city centre) of Leeds in West Yorkshire, England.
