  1. Very helpful.  Many thanks.  

  2. Hi - Does anyone know where I could find some information about the history of the lovely old building housing the Broomhill library? Many thanks for any help.
  3. Thank you very much Edmund. All this is extremely helpful.
  4. Many thanks. Yes I had found the 1911 census details and On the 1881 census I find William, (father of George W 1884-1922 )married to Rose b 1851 in Hull? with children Isabella b1878 and Rose b1880. Then on the 1891 census I find William H married to Eliza b 1850 and in 1901 I find them again with children George W b 1883, Isabella b 1878, Rose b 1880, Margaret B b 1885, May b 1890 and Sissy b 1893. But I'm not sure if the parents of William H Turner could be Christopher Turner (Engine Driver) b 1825 and Isabella Turner b 1828. I have found them on the 1871 and the 1861 census but I'm not sure if I'm correct.
  5. Hi - I'm researching the Turner family. George Turner (engine driver) 1884-1922 who married Edith Beckitt 1883-1973. I think George's father might have been William H Turner b1851 (engine driver/stoker/fireman). On the 1881 census I find William married to Rose b 1851 in Hull? with children Isabella b1878 and Rose b1880. Then on the 1891 census I find William H married to Eliza b 1850 and in 1901 I find them again with children George W b 1883, Isabella b 1878, Rose b 1880, Margaret B b 1885, May b 1890 and Sissy b 1893. I'm wondering if the parents of William H Turner could be Christopher Turner (Engine Driver) b 1825 and Isabella Turner b 1828. I have found them on the 1871 and the 1861 census but I'm not sure if I'm correct. It's possible that this family might have some links with a newsagent type of business. Any help would be welcome or advice on sites to search. Currently I am only using Genes Reunited which I'm finding rather surprisingly slow to use though the way it links with other researchers is extremely useful. Many thanks
  6. Thank you very much. I think the first 3 are correct but am uncertain about the 4th as it was always believed that there were further children.
  7. Hi Does anyone have any information about the above who married on Christmas Day in 1882. He was born in 1861 and she was born in 1872. Elizabeth died in 1883 after the birth of her daughter Edith. Edward remarried and probably had more children but I have no more details. I am also interested in Thomas Johnson, the father of Elizabeth. His wife Mary later remarried George Starkey and they ran at least 3 pubs in Sheffield - The Queen's Hotel on Eccleshall Road, The Bay Horse on Willey Street and the Crown in the Wicker. Many thanks for any assistance.
  8. Thank you very much to Dunsbyowl for taking the time to post such valuable information. Just wondering if you know anything about Thomas Johnson who was Mary Starkey's first husband and also Elizabeth Johnson who was Mary's daughter. Elizabeth married Edward Beckitt in 1882 but died in 1883 I know Edward remarried but have no further information. Any help would be much appreciated.
  9. Does any one have information on George and Mary Starkey who were running this pub at the end of the 19th century? In 1901 they were running the Bay Horse Inn at 9 Willey Street, Brightside and later on the Crown Inn in the Wicker. Any details would be much appreciated.
  10. Thank you very much for the information on Mary Starkey and the Crown Inn in the Wicker. That reallly helped my research. Now I am keen to learn more about where and how cigars were made in Sheffield in 1900s as I have discovered 2 ancestors who were cigar makers. What sort of job was it? Was an apprenticeship required? Were machines used? Any help would be most welcome.
  11. Does anyone have information on Mary Starkey who was the licensee of a Wards pub in the Wicker at sometime in the middle of the 19th century?
