had two sons and a daughter. thePeerage.com - Main Page The couple separated in 1991. Their divorce was finalized in 1992; the same year Black married Watford-born journalist Barbara Amiel. Black flattered Amiel, describing her variously as "beautiful, brilliant, ideologically a robust spirit" and "chic, humorous and preternaturally sexy." Courtroom evidence revealed that the couple exchanged over 11,000 emails. In a February, 2011, public Valentine greeting, Black wrote: “I have been persecuted and Barbara was under no obligation to share fully in the life-enhancing and undoubtedly character-building experience of sharing that fate with me completely. But she has, and no one can know, and it is beyond my power adequately to express here, what her constancy has meant to me. For more than four years before I was sent to prison, she toiled with me against the heavy odds generated by the legal and media onslaught. She endured an avalanche of abuse directed at her (although she wasn’t accused of anything) as extravagant, flakey, apt to bolt, domineering, and what Kafka called 'nameless crimes.' For the next 29 months, she led a lonely life in Florida, in a climate that aggravated her medical problems. And once or twice every week, she got up at 3 a.m. to drive over four hours to see me.” "Nineteen years with my perfect Valentine", ''National Post,'' February 12, 2011 32.0 32.9 Watford (M1 (M1 motorway)) Heathrow Airport (M4 (M4 motorway)) (M3 (M3 motorway), M23 (M23 motorway), M11 (M11 motorway)) M25 (M25 motorway) J1a thumb left Baker Street roundel (File:Baker Street tube roundel.jpg) Baker Street station was opened by the MR on 10 January 1863 (these platforms are now served by the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines). On 13 April 1868, the MR opened the first section of Metropolitan and St John's Wood Railway as a branch from its existing route. This line, serving the open-air platforms, was steadily extended to Willesden Green (Willesden Green tube station) and northwards, finally reaching Aylesbury Town (Aylesbury railway station) and Verney Junction (Verney Junction railway station) (some 50 miles 80 km from Baker Street) in 1892. The MR station mainly competed for traffic with Euston (Euston railway station), where the LNWR provided local services to Middlesex and Watford, and later with Marylebone (Marylebone station), where the GCR (Great Central Railway) provided expresses to Aylesbury and beyond on the same line. death_date Wikipedia:Watford Commons:Category:Watford DMOZ:Regional Europe United Kingdom England Hertfordshire Watford

This Watford is not to be confused with Watford, Northamptonshire which is about 50 miles to the north.

Cassiobury Park was once the manor estate of the Earls of Essex and is a public park in the town centre. Watford Football Club play in the Football League Championship which is the second-highest level of football (Association football) in England.

The town developed from an Anglo-Saxon settlement between a ford of the River Colne (River Colne, Hertfordshire) and the crossroads of two ancient tracks. St Albans Abbey claimed rights to the manor of Cashio (Liberty of St Albans), which included Watford. The parish church of St Mary the Virgin was built in 1230 on the same site as an earlier Saxon church, along with stalls for a weekly market. The town grew modestly - assisted by travellers passing through to Berkhamsted Castle and the royal palace at Kings Langley, with the main developments being the 17th-century houses of Cassiobury (Cassiobury House) and The Grove (The Grove, Watford). Both the Grand Junction Canal in 1798, and the London and Birmingham Railway in 1837, allowed the town to grow faster, with paper-making mills, such as John Dickinson and Co. (John Dickinson Stationery) at Croxley, influencing the development of printing in the town which continues today. Two industrial scale brewers Benskins and Sedgwicks (Sedgwicks Brewery) flourished in the town until their closure in the late 20th century. Today, Watford is a major regional centre for the northern home counties. Hertfordshire County Council designates Watford, along with Stevenage, to be its major sub-regional centre. Several head offices of national companies and multi-nationals are based in Watford. Both the 2006 World Golf Championship and the 2013 Bilderberg Conference, took place at The Grove hotel (The Grove, Watford).

Watford was created as an urban district (Urban district (Great Britain and Ireland)) under the Local Government Act 1894, and became a municipal borough by grant of a charter in 1922. The borough had 90,301 inhabitants at the time of the 2011 census. The borough is separated from Greater London to the south by the urbanised parish of Watford Rural in the Three Rivers District (Three Rivers (district)). The Watford subdivision of the Greater London Urban Area, which includes much of the neighbouring districts, had a total population of 120,960 in the 2001 census. Watford Borough Council is the local authority, with a directly elected mayor as head. The Mayor of Watford is one of only 17 directly elected mayors (Directly elected mayors in England and Wales) in England; Dorothy Thornhill has been the mayor since the directly elected system was set up in May 2002, and is both the first Liberal Democrat and first female directly elected mayor in the United Kingdom. Watford elects one Member of Parliament (MP) for the Watford constituency (Watford (UK Parliament constituency)). Prior to the establishment of this constituency in 1885 the area was part of the three seat constituency of Hertfordshire (Hertfordshire (UK Parliament constituency)).
