  3. kevstones added a post in a topic: Coates Houses Greenland   

    And yet another clue in my search for Coates Houses, Greenland. The census taker was on Broughton Lane and took the names of the cottages at the Canal Side. He then went on to Greenland, and you have to remember this is 1861 and its open fields and farms. He includes Barbers Farm then Coates Houses, Hinches Houses and Hodkins House in Pottery Lane

    If I could find the Pottery Lane I may be able to locate Coates Houses

    Keep trying .... Kevin

    Canal Cottages was also mentioned in the census for Greenland. This is in the early stages of his walk.

    Here's another photo of cottages on Darnall Road. They were demolished in 1932

    I came across this photo in picture sheffield and it adds another clue to where Coates Houses were. I believe that Darnall main Road used to be called Worksop Road. Now only the lower part is around the Don Valley Stadium. But, Freedom Houses / Hill was mentioned in 1851 and 1861 census. This is the blurb from the website:

    Basford Street and rear of Nos 289-299, which front to Darnall Road (this terrace of six houses originally comprised Freedom Hill with Darnall Cottage, of which the gable end can be seen)

    I did find it in the end after I had made this topic. Getting too old for this. Put Coates Houses in the search box and it came up with nothing, so I thought I had dreamt up that I had previously asked about this subject.

    Still cannot find anything out. Your link last time led to a directory that stated that the Coates Houses existed and led you back to where I started, the census. I have just been trying to locate their whereabouts with the clues and see if they are on any old maps

    I have relatives in the 1861 census John Nixon and his wife Emma living at Coates House Greenland.
     
    I have scoured the internet, old maps.com etc but I cannot find any info about these houses
     
    1871 / 1881 John and Emma Nixon are in Huntsmans Houses off Broughton Lane because he had come out of the army and now was a miner. Later these houses were called Butty's Lump.
     
    On the 1861 census the registrar has gone to Freedham Hill (Possibly Freedom as he couldn't spell). There's also Freedom Houses, Tinsley Park Road etc
     
    I can track his steps from High Street which is now Attercliffe Road I assume > Deakins House > Broughton Court Carbrook > Pheasant House > Clifton Road > Providence Place > Broughton Lane > Sorby Street > Broughton Lane > Huntsman's Houses > Canal Side > Broughton Lane > Swing Bridge > Greenland Cottage > Fisherman's Rest Beer House > Tinsley Park Road > Freedom House > Freedom Hill and finally Coates House
     
    If anyone can help then I would be grateful

    Thanks for that. I have a 1903 map of Darnall and it shows it as Bawtry Road. Definitely Bridport from when I was a kid living in Frederick Street. Had a schoolmate in Bridport Road, Kevin Burns who went on to swim for GB in the commonwealth games.

    Thanks again, I'll upload it to Ancestry

    Looking at page 1 of the 1841 census it appears that the census taker walked up one side of Worksop Road from Attercliffe right to the other end in Darnall at Catcliffe Road and back again. So, it appears that Coates Houses were on Worksop Road at the Attercliffe end of the road. Since 1841 part of Worksop Rd has been renamed Darnall Main Rd

    That answers everything as to why he is listed at Albert Road then Bawtry Road and when he died in 1910 as living at Bridport Road. So, he never moved house.

    Thanks for the reply and your help its much appreciated .... Kevin

    Looking at the 1881 census I have my great grandfather George Stones and his wife Eliza living at 2 Court 1 Albert Road Attercliffe cum Darnall

    I 've asked about the whereabouts of Albert Road before and the answer has been in the vicinity of Janson Street and Cardiff Street in Attercliffe

    But, I have gone back a couple of pages on the census and it brings you down Darnall Main Road to the Sportsman and Albert Inn at the bottom of what is now called Bridport Road.

    Was Bridport Road once called called Albert Road? I know a lot of street names changed

    On page 1 of the census for the area he mentions Candow Street and Ardmore and then Albert Road. For some reason he doesn't mention Wilfrid Road which in between Ardmore and Bridport ... just a thought. The census does mention that he covers from Church Street which is now Worksop Road and Shirland Lane which would lead you to the conclusion that Bridport Road may have been called Albert Road at one time and perhaps changed names when the courts were demolished and better housing put on it. The Albert Pub being at the bottom of the road is another clue.
