My Osguthorpe (sometimes Osgathorpe, among other variations) hail from Sheffield, and would be interested in hearing from others who may be tracing their Sheffield Osguthorpes.
Great-grandad Arthur Osguthorpe (1866-1932) was a time keeper/clerk at John Brown's (steelworks?). During WW1, he was a sergeant in the KOYLI training recruits (he had previously served in the regiment). The family lived at 193 Langsett Road and later at 20 Hawthorn Road. He is reportedly buried in "Wadsley cemetery".
Of his children:
- daughter Nora (1908-1995) married Henry HIGH, a bricklayer/builder, and had a son John in 1930.
- daughter Hettie (1898-1948) married Bernard GLOSSOP (1896-1974), a saw smith, and had a son, John in 1925.
- son Albert (1896-1969) married Martha Bradburn (1899-1951) and had a son Arthur (1926) and Nora (1927)
- daughter Jessie (1894-1975) was a dancing instructor
- daughter Mary (1890-1930) married John SWAIN and had several children and moved to Scotland.
- daughter Mary married Henry HOWARD in 1919 and moved to Australia
My 2x great grandad Charles Osguthorpe (1830-1873) was a spring knife cutler who lived on Duke Lane and Rockingham Street/Lane. He married Ellen Biggin in 1849 and is buried in the General Cemetery.
