Stafford, city (1991 pop. 60,915) and district, Staffordshire, W central England, on the Sow River, above its junction with the Trent. Stafford's chief industry is the manufacture of electrical goods; other products are concrete, shoes and shoe-repairing machinery, and salt. The county seat of Staffordshire, the city has several half-timbered houses and two old churches that were restored by George Gilbert Scott. Izaak Walton was born there; his cottage at nearby Shallowford is a museum. Richard Sheridan represented Stafford in Parliament from 1780 to 1806.
