  3. Samuel Bingham born 1880

    There are a couple of trees on Ancestry and they all point to this Samuel whose father also died young pre 1890 I think.   From the Sheffield indexers website there is a baptism -  Bingham, Samuel (of 5ct 10 Hawley Croft, born 1880-12-08).     Baptised January 19, 1881, by J.W. Talbot at St Luke, Hollis Croft.     Parents name(s) are Eliza & James (Pearl fluter). Eliza was also in trouble with the law being drunk & disorderly in Sept I think it was 1890 and again in Oct so spent 7 days each time in Wakefield jail.  1881 census - they are at Hawley St other children are James 11, Arthur 7, Clara 5 and Samuel 3mths. 1891 census Eliza is a widow working as a metal rubber, all children are 10 yrs older and  living at 22 Marsden Lane  By 1901  Eliza is living with her married daughter Clara now Cousens at Hollis Croft along with Samuel 21 a butchers knife cutler. Eliza's maiden surname appears to be Dixon. Lyn 1871 census gives James Bingham as married aged 23 living at 9court 4 houses Broad Lane with Eliza Dickson 22 unmarried and James Bingham Dickson aged 1 - interesting! They finally married in the march qtr of 1879
  4. Samuel Bingham born 1880

    You would need to buy his death certificate to see what he died from. As he was a patient then it may also give his home address too.  Lyn

  6. Telephone box Challange

    No but in the Upper Slaughter area of Gloucestershire they have defibrillators in them due to it being a rural area. Lyn  sorry just realized I had already posted that some time ago.

  10. Pheasant At Sheffield Lane Top

    Precisely my thoughts given that it is shortly school holidays too. The old ESC club house on Shiregreen Lane has been badly vandalised after being left empty for only a short time. Pressure is needed to get the security fencing back up around the Pheasant. I have already made my local Councillor aware of it if anyone else is interested in adding their twopenn'orth Lyn  aka Mrs Cynical 
  11. Pheasant At Sheffield Lane Top

    Update on the Pheasant. Metal railings have been taken down so the pub is vulnerable. The demolition request was made by QFM group who are here So KFC are still attempting to get permission to demolish on the grounds it is to dilapidated and uneconomical to refurbish but with a decision of 8th July 2015 and it was refused yet again. They have been trying for nearly two years now.  Worrying they have taken down the security fencing such as it was. Lyn

    Think it is mentioned in the J Edward Vicker's books - ? Old Sheffield Town and Popular History of Sheffield I think they are called.  Lyn
  13. Unknown location, maybe Sheffield

    Come to think of it though by the Edwardian period I  think they had trams running down there but it does look very like that road.  Higher up than this;EQUALS;s13970&prevUrl=  or photo s13970 if the link won't work.    Lyn 
  14. Unknown location, maybe Sheffield

    Immediately it came to my mind that it was walking down Burngreave road away from Abbeyfield park and the old toll house at Firs Hill. Whit walks  and Edwardian?  I'm probably way out though. Lyn
