    So many interesting things in this postcard on Ebay. The well known buildings of the period including the Foster's buildings, Central Hotel and Cafe, Walsh's and in the distance the Fitzalan Market Hall and, I think, old Town Hall. What really appeals to me though are the different vehicles, the trams, a Growler, what looks like a Landau and two donkey carts carrying advertisements for The Empire. ------------------ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/382787090206?ul_noapp=true

    Hi, I have recently moved to Sheffield, and come from Sussex originally however my maternal grandfather came from here, born in 1884. I'm interested in finding out more about his years here. He emigrated to Australia after the 2nd World War and died there in 1981. His name was George Huntley and grew up in Ecclesall. His father Kossuth Huntley worked on the railways. He married a Sheffielder named Mary Jane Padley in 1872. George Huntley rose to rank of Sergeant in WW1 and worked with a motorised ambulance convoy and was in the Somme in 1916/17. They are supposed to have been a well known family in their day but that was a long time ago. I have very few photos of the family but attach some here. George is in uniform pictured around 1915. His brother Louis here appeared in a 1928 article about the Charfield train accident in Gloucestershire in which their sister was killed. The sister who died, Clara Johnson, is also pictured as are their parents Kossuth Huntley and Mary Jane Padley George was a mechanical engineer and worked out of Norfolk Row between the wars where he was an agent for popular makes of cars and lorries of the day. Cheers, Alan Evans

    He was 'sentenced' to the training ship by the Board of Guardians in 1901, after being caught stealing pence at school. He was born 1890 and raised in the Workhouse/Children's Homes up to that point. In Dec 1905, after 4 years of being on the training ship, during an inspection on the Southampton, he is found to be too small and it was recommended he should be sent out to a farming situation, and that the training ship should only be for strong boys. This info was found in the Guardian Minute Books held at the Sheffield Archives. Someone was kind enough to get that much info a few years back for me. So by this time, he would be nearing 16 years of age if taken off the training ship after that report. It is another 9 years before start of WWI, which he enlists, and it is those 9 years I am trying to find where he was and what he was doing. So for the 1911 census, that is half way between and gives me a glimpse. He is actually 21 by the 1911 census as his birth register shows he was older than he thought. His grave marker is off by 2 years. Most curious as to what he did from 1905 until the 1911 census. I know the answer will likely never be really known, but it sure is nice to slowly see what his life was about before coming to Canada. Hopefully he enjoyed the drayman job and stayed on there until he enlisted, where he continued on with horse, being with the R.H. and R.F.A. as a Driver. Thank you all so much for the photos and extra digging of information that I can't access over here! Much appreciated. Here is a photo showing his sentence...

    Hello , I`m Kate , thanks for letting me join . Although I have lived in Cornwall for many years , I was born in Sheffield ( Derbyshire Lane ) and spent my youth in and around the city . I have particularly fond memories of the area around Meersbrook and Albert Road where my beloved grandparents lived , I spent a lot of time with them at number 178 , long demolished for some flats . I have old photos of their garden overlooking the Meersbrook and on up to the park , but sadly no one in the family has any photos of the front of the terrace on Albert Road . I would dearly love to visit Sheffield again but my husbands health is not good so I content myself with memories !

    Its 25 years ago today (21st March 1994) that the Supertram opened for passengers. The first tram from Meadowhall carried the local dignitaries, press etc, and the second one carried those daft enough to get up early to get to Meadowhall for just after 6am, I was one of those! There was such a long queue of people going through the long winded procedure of buying a ticket at one machine and validating it at another, that the tram left late but with a full load. First journeys were Meadowhall to Commercial Street and when we arrived I got cornered by a Star photographer and ended up with my photo in that nights paper. Nigel L

    Fascinating reading. I had read other articles about the Charfield crash but not these. My grandfather was apparently a ladies' man and I suspect that his failing to give his proper name was for such reasons. I like the fact that in the above article, he is referred to as a young man when he was 46 at the time.

    from the Sheffield Daily Telegraph of 20th April 1926: PASSING OF THE GROWLER "Horse-drawn cabs, commonly known as "Growlers" are in very little demand today they are too slow for these times. At the railway stations a few of the "growlers" are still to be found on the ranks." Leeds station had banned them but in Sheffield the rights to use the station approaches was down to individual firms and there were still a few "growlers", waiting hours for a customer who dreaded fast moving traffic and didn't mind a slow journey. A representative from Reuben Thompson Ltd, said that the real reason for retaining them was to give employment for some of their old servants.

    This is my class at Crookesmore School,1960. I'm second from the left at the top (with the lapel badges). The teacher was Miss Sant, who afterwards became Mrs Copley. It's a funny thing, but I don't remember ever being in a 'boys only' class. However, pictures don't lie, so I must have been. The other thing to notice is the huge stone columns which held the school up above the playground and made it quite dark in places.

    Many thanks Bogginspro - I was trying hard to stick more to the time period Dawn is working in so as not to confuse her especially as she lives in Canada so our Poor Law system is a mystery. Hence me sticking to the Ecclesall Union and Brightside (Fir Vale) Union. When the Workhouse was built at Fir Vale it was well away from the sights, sounds and smells of the town!

    Sheffield Poor Law Union was officially declared on 30th June 1837. Its operation was overseen by an elected Board of Guardians, 11 in number, representing its 3 constituent townships as listed below (figures in brackets indicate numbers of Guardians if more than one): West Riding: Attercliffe-cum-Darnall (2), Brightside Bierlow, Sheffield (8). The population falling within the Union at the 1831 census had been 71,720 — Attercliffe-cum-Darnall (3,741), Brightside Bierlow (8,968), and Sheffield (59,011). The average annual poor-rate expenditure for the period 1834-6 had been £13,599 or 3s.10d. per head of the population. The new Sheffield Union decided to continue using the Kelham Street workhouse and also retained the Brightside workhouse which was used for the accommodation of children. The Kelham Street workhouse was enlarged in 1843 at a cost of £6,000. However, the building increasingly suffered from overcrowding, and also had no provision for caring for the sick. In 1855, the Sheffield Board of Guardians were visited by the Poor Law Inspector for the district, Mr Farnham, who strongly encouraged them to build a new workhouse. The following year, the Board set about buying land for a new building. However, the local ratepayers were strongly opposed to the scheme and in 1856 and 1857 voted out the old members of the Board. In the end, £6,000 was spent on alterations at Kelham Street. In 1874, the Board proposed buying additional land at Kelham Street to expand the workhouse site. However, the Local Government Board vetoed this and instead a green-field site at Fir Vale was found on which to erect a new workhouse.

    Dawn - There were two Union Workhouses in Sheffield and depending where you lived, this decided which one you came under whether for 'in' or 'out relief'. Some areas came under Ecclesall Bierlow and some under Brightside. Fir Vale Workhouse, or Sheffield Union Workhouse came under Brightside but didn't open until 1881 officially. Both Workhouses took in children too but by 1894 Fir Vale had the Children's Homes built to separate children from the Workhouse inmates. Normally children would stay with the mother until 3 yrs of age before moving into the homes. It may be that Mary came out of the first workhouse to work somewhere but when she needed help again came under the Fir Vale Workhouse/Brightside area. This research guide may help. - https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/content/dam/sheffield/docs/libraries-and-archives/archives-and-local-studies/research/Workhouses Study Guide v1-3.pdf

    Hello, 30mmavenger, I have been following this with interest, I wonder could she have gone to Brightside because of the child, a couple of links here that may be of interest, one seems to say that Brightside was used for children after 1837 and there are references to Union Workhouse Schools, Rock Street, Brightside Bierlow - ie. 1881 Kelly's Directory. http://www.workhouses.org.uk/EcclesallBierlow/ http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Sheffield/

    Dawn a quick search just for girls born in Sheffield 2 yrs either side of 1863 brought up over 30 matches without doing Ecclesall Bierlow. So it would be lots to post on here as Parker is a common surname. If you go to https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/ and register so you can search freely without having to buy certificates unless you need to. It is a bit tedious because you can only do 2 yrs at a time but be methodical and remember to put in male of female and searching using both Sheffield and Ecclesall Bierlow. But better than Freebmd as it gives mother's maiden surname so long as she was married. If you get stuck you have my email address to contact me. I buy all old B & D certificates that way now as it is much cheaper. It is how I obtained Frank Freeman Newman's. A quick flick through just brings up Mary Ann and John William with the Mother's maiden surname of Curley. Keep in mind the variations of Cowley or Cawley.

    Presumably the people and firms living and operating on Sheaf Island had to be compensated when the Midland Station was built, just like now with the HS2 creation. So there must have been records of this. It would answer lots of questions for anyone interested in anybody operating or living on Sheaf Island.

    Here is the 1901 Census entry for Mary Ann Parker, William Henry's mother, who was in the Fir Vale Workhouse. The Mr Barkby referred to in the Guardians Minute book was Joseph Barkby (1834-1905) a mining engineer of Far House, Cricket Road, who represented the Park Ward on the Board of Guardians for seven years, and was chairman of the Estates and Works Committee, also a Primitive Methodist preacher. Mrs Chappell started on the Board of Guardians in 1984, and for nine years was the only female member of the Board, and she was especially involved with the poor of the Neepsend district. She and her husband John died within a few hours of each other in July 1927. And here they both are in 1891 in the Fir Vale Workhouse (not sure what the "trade" given for Mary Ann is?) And in 1881 Mary Ann was a 13 year old scholar in the Ecclesall Workhouse - presumably she was discharged and hence became pregnant with William Henry. And here is two year old Mary Parker, in 1871, in the Ecclesall Workhouse, with her single mother Sarah Ann Parker (a spoon buffer by trade) and sisters Ann 7, and Sarah 9 months.

    Here is the 1901 Census for William Henry - he was at the Beeches childrens home on Barnsley Road: Here's a 1905 map showing the Beeches: and part of one from 1890: Here's the Beeches (in the trees) from an aerial photograph taken in 1935: Link to information about the Beeches (Lyn may well have additional knowledge about the Beeches): The Beeches was occupied by Thomas Collinson (Assistant Overseer and Collector of Poor Rates for Brightside, also Clerk of the Burial Board) and family until his death in January 1897, when the Guardians of the Poor attempted to rent it out. It later became (amongst other things) a nurses' home for the City General Hospital.

    On 9th October 1916 the First Court of the Sheffield Recruiting Tribunal published a list of men who had been granted (mostly temporary) exemption from military service. In that last was: Horace Milner, employed at S J Milner as a sugar boiler. He was 22 years old, married with no children. His service was deferred until 31st December 1916 on the basis of 2 categories - A : "On the ground that it is expedient in the national interests , that the man should instead of being employed in military service, be engaged in other work in which he is habitually engaged" and E: "On the grounds that the principal and usual occupation of the man is one of those included in the list of occupations certified by Government Departments for exemption." A Tribunal was held on 8th October 1917 and the list of exempted men includes H Milner, employed by Mrs J Milner as a sugar boiler. He was 18 years old and single. His service was deferred until 31st January 1918 based on category A.(above) and fitness category C1 (support duties only home or abroad). At the 1939 Census Horace Milner was a confectioner, dob 10.4.94 living at 38 Olivet Road, with wife Elizabeth. Next door at number 40 was Harold Milner, dob 17.8.99, also a confectioner, with his wife Edith.

    There seemed to be many Milners about so there is a good chance some of their descendants are still around Sheffield. In 1911 Whites Directory there is a John Milner, also a confectioner at 59 Broad Street, Park . I also noticed that in the same directory in the Sheaf Market (Rag 'n Tag) that Samuel Milner, confectioner, is listed as being next to Peter Granelli, ice cream dealer, numbers 11 and 13 so I looked at the George Cunningham painting of the area and near Granelli's appears to be a H. Milner. Though painted very much later it is based on quite an early year ( not sure what year) but the artist usually somehow seems to be quite accurate with signs.

    To clarify, a ‘confectioners’ would have been a shop selling sweets (a candy store), rather than a bakery. The buildings on Olivet Road look to have been extended substantially in the photo attached, which was in 1966, if the different coloured pointing is anything to go by? At this time it was a place of worship. http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s26146&pos=2&action=zoom&id=28573 Also, a photo of the Sheaf Market (Rag-and-Tag) from the 1920’s, which is of the period you were looking for, but sadly no clue as to which is stall #11? http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s07466&pos=9&action=zoom&id=10667 Hopefully they will give a sense of the period and the surroundings?

    Thank you Edmund for the information you supplied. It has proved to be very useful. I have forwarded it to the researcher and received this reply " As it stands I still don't know which Joseph made the knife and probably never will although Joseph born 1846 seems the more probable due to him having a more established business. I have attached the research I did some time ago on the two men, initially my main aim was to try and find out how old the knife was. I originally thought my dad had acquired the knife whilst in the RAF in the mid 1940's.However, I have concluded that it is much earlier than that and so now I feel my dad must have been given it by someone or inherited it. 1st Joseph Born in 1862 His father George was listed a Spring Knife Grinder or a Pen and Pocket Blade Grinder, George died in 1880 when Joseph was aged 18 In 1881 Joseph was listed as aged 19 and a Pocket Blade Grinder the same as his father In 1885 Joseph enlisted into the army, he joined the York’s and Lancs. Regiment and was stated as being a Pen and Blade Finisher. Joseph spent 12 years in the army including a spell in Nova Scotia, West Indies and South Africa, In 1897 Joseph returned to live with his widowed mother in Sheffield and had a short spell as a road labourer working for the local Corporation By 1911 Joseph was listed as a retired Pen and Pocket Knife Finisher even though he was only 49 Joseph never married and died in 1921 aged 59 Conclusion: If Joseph No1 made the knife, it has to predate 1921 and could well be a lot older dating as far back as the early 1880,s 2nd Joseph Born in 1846 Father Isaac was a Table Knife Cutler who died in 1857 when Joseph was aged 13. In 1861 aged 14 Joseph was listed as a Spring Knife Cutler. In 1866 Joseph got married and by 1881 he and his family were living in Bramall Lane, Sheffield, again occupation was a Spring Knife Cutler In 1884 Joseph was brought before Magistrates for threatening his wife and attempting to set fire to some furniture, he was fined and had to keep the peace for 6 months. Joseph continued to be listed as a Cutler in censuses and directories at various addresses in Sheffield. By 1911 Joseph was aged 64 and lodging with a family, no sign of his wife although still listed as married Inclined to believe he was perhaps estranged. Joseph died in 1930 aged 83; he left a will leaving £9378 (lot of money) to a firm of knife manufacturers Joseph Alfred and Francis Blackwell Conclusion If Joseph No 2 made the knife then it dates before 1930 but could go back as far as the 1860’s.

    A family history researcher has asked me this question "I inherited an old pen knife some years ago and it is made by a Joseph Buxton of Sheffield (see attachments). From the research i have done it appears there were two Joseph Buxton's but there does not seem to be any information on them in order for me to establish which one made the knife" I wonder if any reader of the forum can point us in the right direction.

    A possibility is as follows. Joseph Buxton born Q1 1847 son of Isaac Buxton and Elizabeth Lloyd who were married in 1834. Joseph married Sarah Hutchinson in 1866. Advert for Joseph Buxton in 1899, and entry from Whites Directory 1905 (home address 30 Bower Road) : 1896 map showing Rodgers Wheel: Isaac Buxton marriage 1834: Joseph Buxton and Sarah Lloyd marriage 1866: Census returns 1881, 1891, 1901, 1911: BUT - here's the mystery - in 1911, despite Sarah stating that she was a widow, Joseph was boarding at 28 Bower Road, next door to their previous residence. After Sarah died in 1924, Joseph married Mary Elizabeth Wargg in Q1 1928. Mary Elizabeth was buried on 9th December 1929 and Joseph died 3 months later on 24th February 1930, both at 3 Barber Place, and both were buried at Crookes Cemetery in grave 4066.

    Hi I have attached this postcard which I think is of the Training Ship Southampton. It was given to me by a relative and we believe my grandfather, who had been placed in a home, was sent there in the early 1900's. I went to Hull Archives to see if they had any records of boys who had trained on the ship but unfortunately they hadn't. There was mention of some boys and I wrote down the names of the ones from Sheffield but WILLIAM PARKER isn't on it. Just thought you might like to see the picture. I watched your video and it was very moving. Jenny

We spent time looking them up on the internet and feel that there should be more Sheffield history and memories out there on the net. Sheffield's city, culture and people are fascinating and the history of the city has moulded all that. Here on the site we celebrate everything about our great city and it's history, along with the people that made it what it is. "Whatever happened to....." In the various sections you will find everything from old nightclubs and pubs, people, celebrities, music, the football, and of course your chance to look up all the people you may have not been in touch with for years and years ! Most of my memories are from the 70's and 80's but we need people of all ages to get posting their memories The site is fun, friendly and completely free of charge to use and all we ask is that you contribute your memories or help us out with our research by posting information that you might know in one of the threads ! *NOTE - AS A GUEST YOU CAN READ THE SITE BUT WILL NEED TO REGISTER AN ACCOUNT TO POST OR SEE THE PICTURES THAT ARE POSTED ON THE SITE (it's free and takes 30 seconds !)* To register click here - http://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/i...Reg&CODE=00 CLICK HERE TO CONTACT THE ADMIN TEAM
