On the 1851 census I have my great grandfather living in Angel Yard. I assume that it was on Angel Street in the city centre. Can anyone shed some light on exactly where it was? I have looked at 'Picture Sheffield' and there is a pub cum Hotel that was called The Angel. Hope you can help .... Kevin

The yard was to the side of the Angel Inn in Angel Street.  The 1853 map below shows that it was accessed via a covered thoroughfare.  The 'Long Room' in the yard was associated with the Inn and featured exhibitions such as Siamese Twins.  Edward Coleman Dray set up his Veterinary business in the Yard in 1832.

Here's an advert from 1851 showing what was going on at the time your relative was there.  The stables would be in a prime position because of the Angel Inn's coaching status:

And here's what was happening there 20 years previously, couldn't resist it!:
