This album contains the headstone and foot stone of William Henry Parker (my grandpa) along with some copied documents I have obtained. His date of birth was incorrectly documented on most things. He was born Feb 10, 1890 in the Workhouse of Sheffield. Mother was a single pauper who seemingly went into the Workhouse as a child herself, Mary Ann Parker, about 1868-?. Also born to her: Eliza Parker, Nov 26, 1886-? and Harry Parker, a British home child, Nov 24, 1895-Mar 16, 1941.
The White house was, for many years a fish and chip shop in Pitsmoor, now it is a residence. I'd like to find out exactly how old this building is. Local heresay claims it is Tudor, and at some time was a coaching inn. But contradictory evidence claims it is 19th century. Whatever the case, locals thought it was a listed building, but it turns out it's not. Anything could happen to this fine building, if we could determine it's history we could get it listed. Can anyone help us?
